Back again! Today I wanted to post my first "Prague Favorites". The key word is "first"-- there are too many to include all of them in one post. I have officially been in Prague for one month now, so although I am not a *local*, there is one thing I know for sure... Prague is one AMAZING city with tons of things to do.
Beer Geek. You can find me and my friends here at least 4 times a week. With 32 beers on tap that are constantly changing, there is always something new to try at this bar. You can get any type of beer-- from an American Pale Ale to a Cream Porter, there is a different beer for everyone. I also love their concept of having over 12 different types of wing flavors, scaled on the wall, anywhere from Cool Ranch, to Peach Mustard, to Liquid FIRE. If you love craft beer, this is the place to be. Just hop on the green line of the metro to Jiriho z Podebrad and you'll find yourself here. Disclaimer-picture taken from Taste of Prague.
Favorite Beer Garden:
Letná Beer Garden. There are 3 popular beer gardens in Prague; each with a different atmosphere. My favorite is Letná. This beer garden is at the top of a hill, with one amazing view, great beer and food, and a relaxing atmosphere. I love to come here with my friends, grab a chicken kebab, and hang out with the amazing view in the background. There is another beer garden with a more upbeat atmosphere called Riegrovy Sady, which is also an awesome place to be, so I will talk about it in my next Prague Favorites post. Below are pictures of the view from the beer garden.
U Zlatého Stromu. While starving and on a hunt for a good restaurant in Old Town, my friends and I stumbled upon a contemporary Czech restaurant. We had low expectations because normally Old Town restaurants tend to be overpriced with mediocre food. To our surprise, it ended up being one of the best restaurants we've eaten at so far-- especially for Czech cuisine. The prices were very affordable and the food was stellar. Most of the table got a classic goulash dish (beef, potato dumplings, and potato pancakes covered in beef sauce) which was above par. Highly recommended!!
Coffee Room. As I am typing this, I am sitting in Coffee Room with their trendy iced Chai latte served in a mason jar, and a delicious bruschetta toast. Multiple people recommended this cafe to me for their relaxing atmosphere, delicious cafe drinks, and aesthetically pleasing breakfast. Because I work from home for my internship, you can find me here at least 3 times a week (I probably should branch out to other cafes, but I just love this one too much).

If you ever find yourself traveling around Prague, all of these spots are a must in my book. Hope it helps, XO
