For a good old fashioned Prague pub around Wenceslas Square
, full of locals out for a reasonably priced beer or glass of wine with their friends, look no further than U Provaznice.
U Provaznice has a plain, worn look outside. But once inside, you'll be greeted by rustic fiery red walls, with a wood and brick decor, and a nice warm atmosphere.
As with most Czech pubs, take a seat and a waitress should arrive shortly. Or, you can order at the bar. Beers on tap include Pilsner Urquell, Gambrinus and a dark beer from Kozel. Wines are generally served by the glass, with a choice of red or white. And there is a selection of spirits and soft drinks.
In the warmer months the pub benches outside fill quickly. There's not much to look at, just the entrance to the Mustek metro which is opposite, but most people enjoy a drink or two in the fresh air.
U Provaznice is a classic, easy-going Czech pub which appeals to all generations. Prague locals are the main-stay, but if you will see an ever changing cast of international tourists as well, including couples, backpackers, stag weekend groups and more besides.
Its equivalent in the Old Town would be somewhere like Kozicka Bar.
