In a small street near the tram-stop Národní divadlo there is an exceptional place. It is somewhat hidden – very easy to just walk by and be missed. Even I might have still omitted this place, had a friend not showed me in. And that would have been a shame.
First of all – Al Capone’s bar is not just small – it is tiny. I guess if twenty people fit in, it feels crowded already. However, most of the time, there are just about two or three, so you should easily find a spot. Second: this place has a very exceptional atmosphere. I don’t even know why – but if you walk through the narrow hall into a small room – you feel like entering another world. Or more precisely: this place feels as if you were stoned even if you are not – the weird haze, the grave light, the silent music, the pictures of gangsters on the walls.
And third: it is a great value/money as far as cocktails go. Cuba Libre for sixty and Long Island Ice Tea for ninety crowns – that is simply a bargain!
