I did not go into Apotheka with high expectations. It's a small-town bar. In the Czech Republic, no less, a country that so far has not impressed this American cocktail fan.
Well, by God was I wrong. The cocktails were fantastic, the ambience delightful, the customers cheerfully drunk locals, the price very right (about $5/cocktail). We were the only non-Czechs in the joint (tho the wait staff speaks perfect English). The decor is dark wood, with the bartenders dressed in cheerful green bowties. My fiancee was enchanted.
We ordered four drinks: an Old Fashioned, a Cosmopolitan, a Manhattan, and a Bombay Cooler. Every cocktail was beautiful, well-balanced, and classic. There was nothing too innovative here, but frankly I can't complain about genuine Old Fashioneds and Manhattans at great prices.
Go there, before the other tourists discover it.
