Was so excited to come here on my trip to Prague on 13th February, sure enough the bar looked very cool as soon as we walked in and the cocktails were very fun and beautifully presented. However I can't get over how RUDE the two girls working there were! We arrived at 4pm and we were the only ones in... More

Very atmospheric and attractive little absinthe bar. They have an enormous choice of the stuff and, if you're unsure what to order, the very helpful bar staff will help. Their speciality is very craftily made (expect lots of fire) and presented with water (you'll need it). With some soft jazz and low lighting, you might not want to leave.

Huge array of absinthe both French and Czech; friendly and knowledgeable staff; live pianist playing variations of songs and classical music. Lovely place to get out from the cold.

Came here with my husband for a birthday drink. It's a nicely atmospheric place and it's well located but sadly that's all the good things I have to say. Had cocktails and the drinks were ok, but their prices are completely ridiculous, even if they claim to be top quality (could not have told, tasted the same than the absinthe... More

Absinthe isn't a sprit I or my partner have had much contact with but I'm very glad for coming across this venue. We spent a good few hours here trying Absinthe in a variety of cocktails and had a brilliant time. The staff helped us to choose what would suit our tastes and served us at the table which was...

Willing to taste some local Absinthe, we visited this place after having read TripAdvisor reviews. They have plenty of choice and you can spend a lot of time checking all the bottles and deciding which one you want to taste or buy. The place is nicely decorated, even if seems to much underground or dark for many people. However, no... More

Came from Ireland and had this place recommended! The choice of drinks all containing Absinth was amazing, and the cocktails that my girlfriend and I tried were stunning (the zombie)! The staff were also so friendly, nicest Czech people we came across to be honest which gave the bar a nice atmosphere! Definitely worth checking out!!
