For the tap rotating a Czech craft brew, Clock seems to be their favorite microbrewery of choice. We had their 12° APA on our visit and currently they’re debating dedicating the 3rd tap to Clock. In the past they’ve had beers from Klínec Katz and Trilobit Pivovar.
Patra serves a light menu of snacks like hummus and marinated cheese, the latter of which we tried and absolutely loved. This marinated camembert has a mix of dried plums and garlic stuffed between the two sliced halves, and was a welcome variation on the proverbial pub snack.
A unique space, Patra has a more refined and flashy interior, and the atmosphere is more like a bar than a pub. The art gallery upstairs adds a welcome element of culture that’s missing on the Krymská scene. In the future, they intend for their art gallery to host exhibitions that focus on social and gender issues as well as political activism.
A welcome space for everyone, Patra is a gay friendly bar. Service is kind, friendly, and bilingual. The crowd here varies from friends stopping by for a quick pint after work to those checking out the current art exhibition; but in general, it’s got a young, upbeat vibe.
Patra is owned by one of the founders of Prague’s Mezipatra Queer Film Festival, which is celebrating its 18th festival this upcoming November. Building on the same name, Patra also makes use of the unique walkway U Staré Sokolovny connecting Krymská to the busier Francouzská street above.
Located on the corner of U Staré Sokolovny and Krymská, Patra is a short walk down from the Krymská tram stop on Francouzská, where trams 7, 13, and 22 run.
