Overlooking the Vltava and Prague’s historic center, you’ll find Letná Park, one of most popular green spaces, with good reason! To top it off, these lovely gardens include a scenic beer garden (a must-go place) and the giant metronome, formerly one of the largest statues of Stalin. The neighborhood of Letná is nestled rather cozily in between this park and one more, Stromovka. Stromovka, a lush green expanse, is one of the most tranquil places in the city, well worth a visit on its own, it does have a some nice beer gardens as well, including Tiskárna na Vzduchu, with Únětické beer on tap and a fun, buzzing atmosphere.
The Farm is known for their all day breakfast menu, and they serve mimosas, obviously a dangerous combination. Café Letka is a nice place to sit, have a beer from Matuška, a cake and coffee and relax. Prague’s Trade Fair Palace (Veletržní palác) hosts an impressive modern art gallery as well as the wonderful Café Jedna, with fairtrade coffee and beer from Vinohradský Brewery, a local microbrewery.
Onigirazu is a lunchtime treat, making what we’re inclined to call, but told not to call, a ‘sushi sandwich’. Bio Oko is a homely cinema screening independent films and keeping its clientele’s creative minds fed with great microbrews for years in their wonderfully chill, retro-Czech environment. Also tapping beer from the Vinohradský Brewery, Mr. Hotdog serves fantastic “grease-is-good” cuisine, hotdogs and sliders in the American style with daily and weekend specials, whereas Milada Bistro caters to a different side of the spectrum, offering haute cuisine from well known local chefs.
On the eastern side of the train tracks you’ll find all sorts of young people at the Cross Club, but better to go to Pivovar Marina, a brewery in the harbor making some rather nice beers with a cozy atmosphere.
