Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Good drinks in a cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

This place has a great atmosphere and really good cocktails. I wanted to stay longer and have more margaritas - they were awesome :) the price is high being prague but reasonable.

“Yury is the star of the show here!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

We had seen this place and its reviews online and we knew it was our first stop as soon as we got to Prague. We were looking for the finest cocktails, a cool and unique atmosphere and a good cigar. But that wasn't what made the night special.

The lady who brought us inside was quiet, the reserved type... It made us a little shy.. but then the fantastic barman began chatting to us. We made our way to the stools at the bar, sat, opened a menu and the rest was history, as they say :-)

Yury, our barman was .. quite simply a huge credit to this bar. His skills and knowledge were beyond anything I've ever seen before and his kindness and charm made our night. We talked for hours, sipped on several cocktails he recommended (each one being surprisingly delicious) and he even made up unique cocktails to suit our tastes. He asked if we wanted a particular song to be played from the iPod there and before we knew it there was all the jazz oldies and classics being played all night long-simply wonderful. The lady helped us pick out some delicious cigars and we never ran out of popcorn and olives to munch on as we chatted animately to the bar staff. Young Thomas there gave us a list of places to visit if we enjoyed jazz and Yury provided several local places to eat and visit, which we did.

Go here for some old-school american prohibition style class, cigars and cocktails and never look back. If you look for fantastic service, sit at the bar where you will see first-hand the difference it makes to your experience. Don't come with a huge crowd, it would take away from the magic of the place.

One of my most enjoyable nights of my whole holiday, including going to Berlin for a few days.

Thank you Yury! If any friends of mine or I ever set up a swanky bar we will be looking for you to join us! But it would be a huge mistake if anyone ever let you go :-)

“Great drinks and cigar”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stopped in here as my brother had been to the New York location. It was not too busy when we were there but still had good atmosphere. I got some crown on ice and they put it on a tray. Presentation was really good. The bar tenders were really nice and offered help with what drinks to try. I would recommend stopping in for a drink and cigar.
