Lion & Ball Sports Bar is located on a side street near the Old Town Square
. It offers amongst the most extensive coverage of live sports in Prague, shown on a projection screen and HD TVs dotted around the pub.
Lion & Ball is a cellar bar. Its arched ceilings are adorned with the flags of various sporting nations and its exposed brick walls are plastered with English football team memorabilia.
The live sports action is indeed the main draw. Premier League football, Champions League, Bundesliga, World Cup qualifiers, 6 Nations rugby, NFL football, Czech ice hockey games and more are all shown. With a cool Czech beer in hand, it's an atmospheric place to watch the big match.
The pub is themed in a British style, so naturally attracts stag parties at weekends, but plenty of other tourists also drop in.
Drinks are on the expensive side compared to normal bars, but on a par with other Old Town sports bars. There are Czech beers on draught, plus beers in bottles, Magner's cider, wines and spirits.
When the sports are showing, Lion & Ball is a lively place. It should get you in the Prague party mood, in preparation for the night ahead.
