The Locals' Guide to Prague

Six Prague insiders, including two designers, an Olympic athlete and a tech entrepreneur, guide you to their favourite spots in the city.

Miloš Danihelka

The Bar Owner

Miloš Danihelka

Mixologist and champagne connoisseur Miloš Danihelka honed his cocktail chops at some of the city’s most respected bars, including Hemingway Bar and the speakeasy-style Black Angel’s Bar, before opening L’Fleur last year. Inspired by elegant belle époque watering holes, his spot serves some 200 varieties of French bubbly. “For nightlife lovers, Prague has a lot of clubs around Dlouhá Street, near the Old Town Square, including Harley’s, Steampunk, James Dean and Roxy, where you can enjoy good music and a great atmosphere,” says Danihelka, who continues to compete and tour internationally on the bartending circuit.


Hemingway Bar

“I return often to my ‘bartending school.’ It’s got an outstanding selection of rum (more than 200 different kinds), cocktails, such as Hemingway’s Gasoline (with Four Roses whisky, Campari and walnut bitters), as well as premium absinthe and champagne – everything Ernest liked. I grab a seat at the bar to catch up with friends.”

Field

Field

“Field, which won a Michelin star in its very first year, is tucked away on a quiet street close to the Old Town Square. It prepares Czech ingredients like meats and cheeses in a modern style, and starts you off with housemade bread and chicken-flavoured butter. For something different, try the non-alcoholic pairings with juices like plum, cranberry and dill.”

Lokál Dlouhá

Lokál Dlouhá

“If you want to enjoy Czech beer in a fun, lively space, head here for lunch. The long wooden benches and neon-backlit shelves give the beer hall an old-school-cafeteria feel. Traditional dishes, like the housemade sausage with whipped horseradish, are no-frills but hit the spot alongside a pint of Kozel.”
