It is a nice little place on top of the "Dancing House." Serves coffee, pastry, and drinks, all unremarkable, but not bad. The view would be fine, if the outside area wasn't so crowded.

Came up here for a cocktail with a view. Drinks were great and not as expensive as I thought they might be given the viewing platform you can drink them on. Great views and perfect opportunity for pictures.

Waited 26 months to visit The Dancing House and it was well worth it. Staff were friendly, the drinks were very reasonably priced and the view was amazing.

We came to Prague for my 30th Birthday and whilst out and about one day we came to the "Dancing House". We came just to look and take some pictures, but, what we didn't know was you can go up to the Glass Bar. All...you need to do is buy a drink (or pay to go outside) for some great views. We all got a drink, I got a delicious non-alcoholic cocktail and it was worth the price.More

Really not worth the bother... staff were very unhelpful and the view was not so special. Better photos from many other spots in Prague

Underwhelming. Not worth booking a table. Horrendous tourist trap. Overpriced drinks for a congested greenhouse experience

Not worth a visit. The staff are more interested in scrolling on their phones. The atmosphere is dead. The view outside is good but there are much better around the city. The cocktails are pre made and basic. If you have spent a prolonged time...in Prague and have run out of things to do then a visit may be warranted. As a whole it’s unimpressive and cheap.More

I would say this is an overrated tourist trap but the view was really nice and it wasn’t that expensive to just go for a drink. They make you buy a drink before you can go out to the deck which I think is fair.

Totally rude and unacceptable behaviour from the staff. Not even a greeting when we entered the bar, just a completely rude response about paying a ticket. When we asked for an explanation, they just requested the money that we paid immediately without a receipt or...anything else. After we sat on a table and asked for drinks, they just said "no, we are closing" as a once again completely rude response. We then explained that we were tourists and didn't know about the closing hour of the bar or the ticket, the response was "don't you read, it's there on the sign"! We again complained about their behaviour and responded that they should explain from the beginning that they're closing and we couldn't order drinks instead of rudely asking for a ticket (100 kz or 4 €) and they should give us back the money we payed for completely nothing Then they started saying "we don't speak or understand English", yet they were smiling at what we were saying. That is not the way to treat tourists or customers and you should be ashamed of your staff and their behaviour. Sadly for you, gladly for all the others, all other bars/coffee shops and their staff in Prague are hospitable and kind. 0 of 5.More

The famous dancing house sits on the corner of a road next to one of the many bridges that crosses the Elbe. The building itself is rather unusual hence the name and is worth a picture or two from the outside. To go up to...the bar you simply walk in and go up - we went in December and it wasn't busy at all but it could get busier at other times I guess. You can pay an entry fee or you can buy a drink - its a no brainer really, buy a drink and enjoy the view. You can sit in the relatively small bar inside or venture out onto the terrace area which provides a great view over Prague and in particular the Prague Castle in the distance. At night, its all lit up beautifully.More

Worth taking a glass of wine at this roof top and take some photos from the top. Prices are normal and the view is fantastic.

The most attractive feature of this place is the view. It is spectacular, it's worth experiencing once, for sure! Ideal for a stop-by, and especially, if you are in the neighborhood (Naplavka, even on the way to the city centre from Vysehrad, etc.) During our...visit, it was hard to find a place to sit down, it has to be said that the top of the bar (where everyone would like to sit, assumedly) is a very small place, so be prepared to experience people coming and going or just going around. It is not a place to stay for long while sipping a cocktail, for this reason. I enjoyed the view, but not so much the crowdedness of the place. It also has to be said that it is a touristy place, and I assume the huge fluctuation of people leaves the staff a little bit tired sometimes. To access the rooftop area, you need to purchase a drink (understandably), or pay a small entrance fee. We were a bit disoriented despite the huge (and not so classy, but practical) sign before the door, and the staff's reminder was a bit disappointing, but it didn't spoil the whole experience. This place is definitely bookmarked for occasional sightseeing visits, it's nothing special, it's only the view that's worth seeing here.More

I would not make a special trip for just the view, which is OK , but truthfully you can get better elsewhere . However if you are interested in seeing the Dancing House and the unusual architecture , you can make a short stop at...the bar . If you make a purchase there, a drink or a snack, you can go to the deck for free, look around, take pictures. If you are in the neighborhood ....More
