A selection of classic R&B fills the air, drowning out the chatter of guests sipping coffee or a glass of cold beer. Břevnovský Benedict 12° lager is always on tap, the atmosphere relaxed and decor cool. A hip place for an afternoon coffee or beer.
The murmur of laughing guests is dulled by the groove based music playing, and the smell of roasted coffee fills the air. But we’re not here for the coffee…though its invigorating aroma easily perks you up. We’re here for what’s on tap. Nahoře has 2 taps, one always serving Břevnovský Benedict 12° light lager, and the other rotates, pouring something like Břevnovský Benedict’s IPA or on our second visit, they had Svatý Norbert from Klášterní Strahov.
The taps are well kept in this newly opened restaurant, and the Břevnovský light lager tastes impeccably fresh. It’s hard to resist seconds and thirds. For some odd reason, you can’t buy a half liter here (perhaps the new cafe standard?), but only .2 or .33 glasses. Nahoře only serves drinks, but their sister restaurant, Dole, located in the basement just next door, has a small, but nice sounding menu (we haven’t been there yet, but are certainly planning on it).
This is a smoking cafe, and especially the upper floor can become quite hazy. The crowd varies from young hip student types to older ladies enjoying a few ciggies and coffee. Service is functional, with at times a wry smile.
Located on Na Hutích Street which runs off of Dejvická, Nahoře is a 5 minute walk from Dejvická.
