My sister and I stumbled upon this little gem on a rainy night in Prague. Instantly we were welcomed into a magical world of atmospheric lighting and walls of Armagnac bottles as we desended into the medieval arches of the cellar and greeted by a...friendly somellier named Petr. We were invited to take a look at the selection of very tantalising bottles of wine from the cellar all ranging from affordable to more special occasion prices but for us we started at the lower end. Not to be sniffed at, for less than £20 we were served a beautiful bottle of wine but it didn't stop there. The very knowledgeable, dashing and (have to say) hilarious somellier Petr went on to explain the history of our wines beginnings and life that took it to our table. We were instantly captivated by his passionate delivery of all things wine.At one point a map even came out ! We continued experiencing a few glasses of wine on Petrs recommendation all the way to ending the night trying a couple of the armanacs and congnacs. All were spectacular but what really made our night was the whole experience provided by Petr. Very professional, he knew when to stand back but sniffed out exactly what we were both looking for in terms of our palate. A phenomenal little place that really did make our trip in Prague very special. Thank you Petr! Highly recommend you try it !More

My husband and I stayed at the Aria in December of 2019 and this gorgeous little wine and cognac bar was right down the street. Each time we passed it we'd mention how we had to try it sometime. Finally, one night we decided to...pop in and we did not regret it. In fact, we regret not having the time to go more often. It is a fantastic and cozy, moody underground lounge with multiple rooms and multiple seating areas, some for smaller parties and some for larger parties. I loved the atmosphere because it was so interesting and intimate. The real strength of this place is it's people, though. I regret that I didn't get his name, but a young man sommelier helped us decide on drinks, and he even introduced my husband to cognac by designing a cognac flight that was really, really fantastic. He taught us a lot throughout the experience and I think he even turned my husband into a cognac drinker. We also got a couple small apps which complemented the experience as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. I would say this place is a hidden gem but it looks like tons of people know about it so it may not be as hidden as I thought. Definitely a gem, though! Great time all around.More

Wow! What a find! Cozy, warm, and comforting inside. A bar with emphasis on cognac, Armagnac, etc. Wine, too. The staff, especially the sommelier, was VERY knowledgeable and very friendly. We absolutely loved this place! A few feet from the Aria hotel. Look for it...and stop in. Highly recommended.More

My partner and I visited here a couple of times whilst we were in Prague, we really enjoyed the quality of wines and cognacs on offer and the very knowledgeable and friendly bartender Petr, very relaxed environment, would certainly recommend to others.

We loved the set up here. Historic wine cellar with interesting wines and nibbles to tide you over as you taste. So warm and friendly on arrival, dry sense of humour which was right up our street and excellent wine knowledge of course. Seemed really...genuine until another couple of customers came in and then rather abruptly ended our interaction, in quite a rude fashion. We had a great time to start with, can't take that away, but left feeling rather like some of the other reviewers: a bit used for the sale. Rapport is quite a skill, shame it couldn't be authentic. There's more to life than money. Good to visit if you have your wits about you, but we won't be going back.More

All about the upsale. Seemed genuine until chased up the stairs for a tip. Upsale then squeeze. Not in a hurry to recommend

This place had snacks but I am not sure why some reviewers call it a restaurant.. We stopped in on a recommendation from our travel guide, and were beyond impressed. The place itself is rather unassuming, but the knowledge level and care put into curating...the collection of wine and cognacs was incredible. We did not know much about cognac and did one of the tastings. The (I think) owner was extremely nice and explained much about the region and different varieties of cognacs served. It was one of the top experiences we had in Prague.More

U Stare Studny is adjacent to our hotel, Aria, and we ventured down the stairs for a quick nightcap. A wine and cognac bar catering primarily to discerning locals, our late night welcome was extraordinary. Petr and Ondrej engaged immediately, directed us to the perfect...wine and then began to educate us about cognac. They’ve curated a significant collection of small-producer gems - both wine and cognac - and are passionate about sharing their knowledge and opinions. It was a wonderful experience and, despite limited exposure to or knowledge of cognac on arrival, I left with a ‘heritage’ 1958 bottle I can’t wait to share with friends. Stop in. Make the effort to engage and learn. It may be one of the highlights of your visit to Prague.More
