Pivo a Medovník: A Prague bar and café guide II

Let´s carry on with some more tips about bars and cafés in Prague. This time I will focus on some bars in Žižkov, the area I lived in and the area I want to move back to! There are so many cool places. I definitely haven´t made it half way through my list of all the places but these are definitely worth a mention: 

Bukowski´s: This bar was located just 5 minutes from my flat. I think you can already guess that I spent a lot of evenings there. Bukowski´s at Bořivojova 689/86 reminds me more of Berlin bars but still I´d say it´s way more uncomplicated and sweeter. You will step into a dark bar with loads of candles and a beautiful wall covered in a massive bookshelf. Also they play decent music there! Go there on Sunday and enjoy the 2 litres of beer for just 50 CZK (about 2€)

Big Lebowksi: The Big Lebowski at Slavikova 1204/16 is a teeny tiny place where you are standing right at the bar as soon as you enter the bar. To the right you can find a ladder which leads you upstairs to the little cozy tea room where you can enjoy your White Russian or whatever. There is not a lot of space, so don´t go there in big groups. You can smoke shisha there and the best thing is that you decide how much you want to pay.

Palác Akropolis: This bar/club/restaurant next to the TV Tower was the place I met the first amazing friends of my Erasmus. The food upstairs is the same like in Atmosphere and downstairs you can find a bar where you can dance to some drum and bass. Also I love the outside of the old building in Kubelíkova 1548/27. So when you go the TV Tower, you might want to have a beer after a busy sightseeing day.

Klub Pilot: At Donska 19 you can find some other cool places. Klub Pilot is a club where you can dance to drum and bass and some Balkan beats on Thursdays. Next to it you can find a very dodgy bar where you can drink beer between fish tanks and watch quirky Czech films in an almost pitch black environment. I love that creepy little place.

Bunkr Parukárka: You can find a very well hidden club in the middle of Žižkov on a green hill. In the summer this place is also pretty cool to have a beer and enjoy the view over the city. In the night you have to find the little graffiti-covered door of the old 1950´s nuclear bunker and celebrate in the dark cellars under the ground.

So that´s the second part of my personal guide. In the next post I will tell you about my favourite cafés and food places in Prague. So if you are planning on a trip to Prague, let me know and I can give you some more recommendations via mail before the next part will be published.
