U Vejvodu is a historic pub, beer hall and restaurant all rolled into one. The rate at which the beer is served ensures visitors enjoy some of the freshest, frothiest Pilsner Urquell beer in Prague, served ice cold at 33.90czk for ½ litre!
Set in the heart of Prague's Old Town, in a building dating from 1403, U Vejvodu is split over two levels.
Downstairs is a beer hall restaurant. Old photographs and other memorabilia depicting the heyday of Czech brewing adorn the walls and waiters in traditional attire serve hearty Czech cuisine. While the beer is highly recommended, there is also a wide selection of wine, spirits and soft drinks to accompany your meal.
The music downstairs has a traditional Czech theme to it and sometimes an accordionist will stroll around. Occasionally, Old Bohemian bands also put in a performance (these can be ordered by groups as a special request).
Upstairs, a pub style area attracts a younger set. The music is more upbeat and Prague locals mix with couples, hen nights, stag parties, indeed all types of groups, everyone blending in to create a lively, welcoming atmosphere. Some just come for drinks, others to eat, then stay on for drinks afterwards.
Advance reservations for groups wishing to eat are essential, and we would recommend it for individuals too.
A few words of caution: Firstly, drinks menus are cleared away around 11.30pm, and at this point prices go up. Ask to settle your bill once this happens, and if you want more drinks, check the price before you buy. Secondly, always check your bill carefully and let the waiters know if you don't agree.
Be careful and you will be fine, but these latter two issues cloud what is otherwise a popular beer hall and restaurant with plenty of atmosphere.
U Vejvodu will appeal to all age groups and for many different occasions, from Prague stag nights and hen parties to birthday celebrations.
