The taps of the best Pilsner pubs are something legendary on the streets of Prague. And few pubs meet the task of serving this golden lager the way it was meant to be. In 2010, U Houbare won the award for Best Pilsner Urquell Pub, a prestigious award which faces stiff competition and the highest of standards. In previous years, U Houbare is usually voted one of 10 best Pilsner pubs in Prague.
U Houbare’s golden taps serve of course Pilsner Urquell 12°, Kozel Tmavy (dark lager), and Gambrinus 10°, so you have 3 fresh lagers to choose from. With professional old style Czech service, your expertly poured mug won’t be left empty. The menu offers traditional Czech food, like goulash, svickova, fried cheese (smazeny hermelin or eidam), and fried chicken (kureci rizek) in large portions and all prepared well.
Frequented by devout local Pilsner fans, Czech and tourists alike, U Houbare attracts individuals of all ages. Decorated with traditional Czech beer memorbilia, this wooden walled pub has an authentic and charming pub atmosphere. This isn’t the largest pub, with a large entry way where local fans stand and sip their Pilsner, and two other rooms, which one of which is pleasantly non-smoking. In the evenings, U Houbare fills up quickly, so consider making reservations.
