U zlateho Tygra – At the Golden Tiger
If you wish to experience a traditional Czech pub in the heart of Prague, U Zlateho Tygra is your one-stop shop for a traditional Czech pub with true unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell on tap. This is one of the most centrally located authentic Czech pubs and should be a must on your list of things to see and do in the city of Prague. Be aware that this pub belongs to the locals, which means that the majority of the tables at the pub have reserved signs on them for these thirsty regulars, most of the staff do not – or will not – speak English, and the interior is extremely smoky. If you visit the pub early, around 3 p.m. to be exact, you will be able to drink until the regulars pour in. It is easy to see why this pub is for locals, as it is said to pour the best beer that Prague has to offer. Besides serving the best beer in the world, the pub is also famous for being the favorite watering hole of both Czech writer Bohumil Hrabel and former President Vaclav Havel. In fact it is at U Zlateho Tygra where former US President Bill Clinton met with Vaclav Havel and Bohumil Hrabel, a meeting that which would became a well-known photograph of the 3 intellectuals. If you want to experience a real Czech pub then U Zlateho Tygra is a perfect choice, where you will find a very smoky environment filled with locals drinking the best Pilsner in Prague on tap. Cheers!
