With a history dating back to 1499, this Prague institution is the only brewery and restaurant in Central Europe that has been brewing non-stop for over 500 years. Beer lovers come from all corners of the world to try U Fleků’s 13 degree dark lager, made with all natural ingredients and nothing artificial. The restaurant, serving traditional Czech cuisine of course, includes eight beer halls (each with its own distinctive décor) and an inner beer garden that seats up to 500 people. Everyday U Fleků serves around 2,000 pints of beer. If you want to know more, they also have a beer museum (tours on request, call ahead) in the former malt house. There are also brewery tours and by request cabaret shows. Beer is central to Czech culture. This is a lively and fun place to experience it, even if a bit touristy.

A Merry Place to Feast
U Fleků is one of the oldest functioning breweries in the world. They've been in business for over 500 years, which has Columbus' discovery of America beat! Not even the Soviets could shut this place down, so its been given plenty of time to create the perfect Czech style atmosphere for a night out. Abundant beer, hearty food, and merry vibes, its the perfect night-in for a night out in Prague. And who doesn't love an elderly accordion player serenading you over cheers and toasts of delicious Czech beer?
