When I heard about a dark pub, hidden under the most visible and visited place in the city, it immediately caught my attention.
There are no directions before going down the stairs to the pubs doors – one just has to know where he is going (or at least ask the staff of the Café Jurček above).
Once you enter the tavern, your sight is instantly greeted by a relaxing, dimmed, soft light and an easy-on-the-eyes interior design, mostly made of dark wood resembling mahogany.
You start to feel special when a suited up, exquisitely bearded bartender approaches your table and asks you about your drinking desires. At this point, one ought to be careful. Since I like to drink beer but am far from a beer connoisseur, I trusted my intuition and ordered what seemed to be a nice, delicate, after-work drink. Boy was I wrong. The error, or shall we say the lesson, hit me right when I was slowly drinking my way to the centre of the bottle. Dizziness and not being able to focus on the words of my fellow drinker brought to my attention the idea that I might be drunk already.
Long story short, I ordered a Belgian, 8% alcohol kind of beer. Great flavour served with a refreshing experience.
All in all, a luxurious place to visit, especially if you’re a big beer drinker.
