|U Fleku is a large pub and microbrewery. Of all the traditional Czech pubs in Prague, architecturally is it unrivalled.|
The U Fleku building dates from 1499. It is a huge sprawling tavern, a complex of rooms laid out in true European beer hall style.
Each room has its own design: the Ancient Czech Hall, Academy Hall, Cabaret Hall, Large Lounge, Travelling-Case, Sausage, and Vaclav's Room.
There is also a reasonably sized beer garden at the rear, called the Hop-garden, which is a fine place for outdoor drinking with a bit of ambience.
For drinks, U Fleku brews its own beer on the premises. They call it lager, but for visitors expecting a light beer, be aware this is a good, robust dark beer. Alternatively, there are basic red and white Czech wines, plus spirits and soft drinks.
With regards to service, drinks are served quickly enough at U Fleku, but waiters can sometimes appear a little grumpy (don't worry about this, he probably isn't, it's just traditional Czech pub service).
U Fleku remains popular all year round because it offers an experience of typical Czech beer and entertainment, and some might say, service!
An accordionist plays all day and evening, making his way around the various halls, which adds to the beer hall atmosphere.
