Established in 2004 Tynska Bar and Books was the first overseas Bar and Books enterprise. The Czech Republic had just become a member of the European Union and its capital Prague is well known as one of the most beautiful European cities, rivaling Paris, London and Rome. Located in the heart of Prague, just steps away from the Old Town Square, perfectly hidden in a small cobblestone street with a spectacular view of the Tyn Church. Tynska Bar and Books is proof of how sophisticated Prague has become.

I read about this place on the Internet and the reviews were not lying. Really loved the atmosphere, and the staff was incredibly friendly. The cocktails we ordered were top notch, probably the best we had in Prague. 2 cons maybe. Being from Belgium it's pretty strange to still see pubs where you can smoke inside. I know it's probably...

Thank you very much for sharing your experience from our bar here with other travellers. Yeah, we do our best to make nice ambience for our guests and differentiate from other bars in Prague. The smoking in bars and restaurants was still not banned in the Czech Republic, but even if it would, we are mainly focusing on whisky and... More

Prague has been on my bucket list for travel for awhile. While I don't typically like bars where you can smoke, it was bearable in this atmoshere. I was buzzing with delight at ringing doorbell to gain access and walking in to dimlit library/living room cozy vibe. James Bond movies playing on the screens. Interesting art work. Ana was our...

One of the best bars i ever visited. One can actually smoke inside? So we tried the special whiskies flight and a homemade cigar. The hostesses and barmen are friendly and James Bons appears on the screen. The music is good, the atmosphere is very good. Just relax and sipp the drink.

We read about this place in one of our travel books and it definitely met expectations! While we all love beer it was nice to switch it up with a specialty cocktail.

This bar is very classy and intimate. The decor is inviting and the personnel are top class: polite, friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed the live music, the volume of which was perfect: just loud enough that you could sit back and listen without straining your ears, yet quiet enough that you could easily chat with others at the table....

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
