The area
Address
Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

    Book now - It’s worth it!
    This place is definitely worth the visit! We came her numerous times and it kept getting better and better. Great cocktails and friendly bar staff. A really laid back atmosphere with a great playlist. It is a bit on the expensive side but worth every Penny! Make sure to book as you could be waiting a bit for a table.

    Top class cocktails in the Old Town
    My partner and I love a good speakeasy bar, and this place was as good as any we've been too. Warm, cosy and intimate ambience, really friendly and efficient service and excellent cocktails including some really quirky flavour combinations alongside the usual classics. Lovely place to come for a drink or two. Prices higher than most bars in Prague but you pay for the quality and overall experience.

    Make a reservation, you won’t be disappointed.
    We made a reservation in advance (the last time I visited Prague we could not get a table) and was delighted to have a great alcove table on the second floor. Eva was fantastic! Attentive and knowledgeable and really provided expert guidance for our cocktail needs. Everyone in our party of 6 had different requests and interests and she made sure everyone had an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend Hemingway Bar. Just be advised the reservation is only for a 2 hour time slot. We would have stayed longer if we could have. Loved the Naked Lady cocktail!

    Unique cocktails and wonderful waiters
    We visited for pre-dinner drinks and loved the cosy quarters of the bar. Really nice to try some different cocktails and served so beautifully! Our waiter was attentive and helpful with recommendations. A great place to start the evening … or stay the evening!

    Amazing experience with unique cocktail menu
    Amazing cocktail bar hidden away not too far from Charles Bridge. Cocktail menu is full of unique options, served in really cool ways. You can also request more traditional cocktails if you would prefer. We sat near the bar and the atmosphere was brilliant and the music was great. In terms of cost, cocktails are really reasonable, we tried 6 from the main menu and it came to around CZK1,885 (around £65). If you want to visit Hemingway, I strongly suggest you book a table in advance. We booked a table for 2 hours on a Tuesday evening and the place was packed… people that didn’t have reservations were even queuing outside! This is our first time in Prague and this is the fifth cocktail bar we have tried, and although the others were brilliant, Hemingway is the best!

    Cosy cocktail bar
    Definitely book your table beforehand, this cosy bar is always full. We booked on the Wednesday night, sat in the main bar area, great atmosphere, excellent music - 80s club classics- and the cocktail menu is extensive. If you don't really do cocktails then there is bottled beer too, and traditional drinks.

    Intimate cocktail bar
    Fabulous cocktail bar minutes from Charles bridge. I'm so glad we booked and spent the hours leading up to midnight on New Years Eve, sipping Cocktails. Unusual house cocktails, the friendly bar team, were also more than happy to make up anything we asked for.

    A cool speak easy vibe.
    Very cool speak easy type of bar. Have to wait outside untill called through to a table. Waited around 10mins. The cocktails are very unique, I got the mistress (gin) and my partner went of the Hemingway garden (absinthe) which seemed to be the most popular round the bar. If you love gin and fruity cocktails I’d definitely recommend the mistress. If you want to try absinth in a nice way, then go for the Hemingway garden. The servers were lovely and took time to explain the cocktails you ordered. A very unique and cool expirence.

    Must visit cocktail bar in central Prague
    Great laid back bar close to the city centre. It was recommended by friends and so I booked in advance, however on a quiet early evening in January I think we would have got straight in anyway. Great cocktails and fab stuff. Loved the ‘winter warmer’ which was essentially champagne and apple sorbet but was absolutely delicious.

    Great friendly service! Delicious cocktails
    This was a great bar with friendly servers and nice atmosphere. We sat at the bar which meant we could chat to the bartender (Marina!) and get suggestions on the best drinks and recommendations for other places around the city

Despite the fact that we came without having booked a table, we get one for 3 persons after waiting patiently for 15 minutes in the front of the bar. Inside, design is very meticulous, the atmosphere is smooth, the light is subdued : it feels cozy, but a little bit too dark.
The waiter was very nice and professional, we asked for advice and he kindly provided us with his expertise according to our expectations.
Cocktails menu is very original and can satisfy every tastes. The ones we chose were good-looking and tasted excellent !
Price a little bit high but considering the fact that this place is maybe the best cocktail bar of the city, it's worth the price !

We visited this bar twice during our three day trip to Prague. It was fabulous. The cocktails were a work of art and the bartenders were attentive and knowledgable. We went on a Friday and a Sunday night without a reservation but they were able to accommodate us without a problem. If this bar was in London it would be overcrowded and filled with posers! Instead it was quiet and lovely. 10/10

It is the most boring bar I have ever been. Dark, basement and seats are next to each other. The waiter memorised each word he would say in english and saying exactly the same things to everyone coming in. Really suprised this place has this much ratings.

I’m a cocktail lover so when I found this unique cocktail bar in Prague we just had to go. It seems small from the outside but don’t let it deceive you it backs on to a larger area with an upstairs too!
If you have the opportunity sit at the bar! It’s small but intimate and the barmen are attentive - you feel like you have your own private barman!
The dimly lit atmosphere and music all add to an eclectic old time feel.
The cocktails were beautiful, some come in fancy glasses however the actual drinks themselves are out of this world regardless of what they’re presented in. We asked the barman for his recommendations and we weren’t disappointed.

We visited this amazing bar for a birthday drink as it was recommended to us and we were definitely not disappointed. Highly attentive waiter (Ondra) who asked about our preferences and suggested cocktails mixtures suiting our taste. The environment was pleasant and bar's interior was on point! Definitely worth the visit.

We stumbled on this lovely bar after being out so we weren't able to enjoy it more which was a shame as the wine was beautiful.
We were welcomed by a lovely waiter (tall red haired chap) who sat us down, offered to take our coats and looked after us very well.
He recommended a few drinks to us after asking us what we liked. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the drinks and handled a group of 5 Americans very well who were being very, American....
Unfortunately we were at the end of our night or we would have loved to have spent longer here.
They didn't seem to do meals and only snacks but that may be due to the time we arrived.
Highly recommend a visit here and also the Frankova wine.

This place is a gem for craft cocktails. The interior is warm and intimate; with moody lighting, comfortable little tables, and photographs from the life of the namesake all over. It simultaneously feels like a medieval pub and an American prohibition-era speakeasy.

The staff is incredibly friendly, while still maintaining the no-nonsense attitudes that seem so common in Prague. They’re clearly proud of their menu’s signature cocktails (and rightfully so!) but are also very creative in crafting you a custom drink.

Make a reservation. The place always fills up, and while worth it, the wait can be long for a “walk in.”

Booked Hemingway Bar after researching good cocktail bars in Prague and this certainly didn't disappoint.

We booked a table for 19:00 on a Saturday night and arrived as they were opening (alongside 3-4 other booked tables). Highly advise you book this bar as you don't want to miss out!

Every single member of staff were fantastic and really knew their stuff. 10/10 service. And every cocktail we had was great. Not your classics but loved that about this place!

More expensive than other cocktail bars in Prague but cheaper than London priced for cocktails which are much better!
We paid £36 for 3 cocktails and some nuts!
