I go here every time i can and my wife allows me :-). They have 3 beers from their brewery which is always there. Then they have another 10 on tap, but they keep changing them, and always bring something new. So you can come 4 times a week and always have something new. Excellent beers and service. My favourite pub. If you go after 8 you might need reservation.

As the beer culture in Slovakia improved significantly in the past few years, many pubs and microbreweries started appearing on the map. They usually provide a very good beer and atmosphere for a reasonable price.

Richtar Jakub is definitely one of my favourite places in Bratislava and one of the best pubs you can find around.

Beer is absolutely fantastic. Besides their own beers (Jakub, Anna) they serve a wide variety of other beers from smaller breweries of Czech and Slovak Republics. The beer menu changes constantly, so you never know in advance what they'll have for the day. The offering can change even during the time you're staying there. Usually it consists of some 10 beers, plus some specials (my favourite is Russian 20°IPA stout).

When hunger strikes you can choose from several typical meals which get along well with beer. Pickled cheese or sausages, fried fish, and some others. Not the best food you can get in town, but good enough.

The atmosphere is great. It is quite small, not very fancy and usually quite crowded. There is a small terrace in the back, which is open only during spring/summer. The service is great, very friendly and helpful. From the time you walk in you'll feel like you came to your friends' place.

Generally it's one of the best places you can visit if you like beer and beer culture. Cheers!

We were here with couple of friends, most of us by accident.
If you walk around town center close to the "Medicka zahrada" (Medical Garden), it may happen that this pub will be not recognizable for you. It has just a little sign above the entrance, so I consider this a good sign that the pub is for true beer lovers who do not need neon signs to recognize it :) Pub or a minibrewery is named after one of the most famous citymayor Jacob (who ruled the city in the 13-14th century).
The brewery make their own beer called Jakub and on the chart abow the tables there is about 13 beers writen by chalk. Most of regular visitors has already selected their favorites, but we´ve made an ultimate experience and tryied to taste all of them. All of the available beers have distinctive taste and according to their number, it is clear that it will entice you, like us, to go back and try to start selection from the bottom :)
We also tried some food, all of them were best for the beeer and hungry visitors like different types of cheeses, sausages, barbecued ribs, roast knuckle etc...
Each visit was worth it, and I really recommend it.

Although the place is quite hidden, it's gem among Bratislava pubs for beer lovers. It has amazing atmosphere and huge beer selection of small, not generally sold local draft beers. By local I mean brands from Slovakia, Czech and Austria. When I visited the place they offered selection of around 15 different brands and I guess the selection is changing all time, because beers were written on black board and crossed out over time as we were emptying their storage. Definitely worth a visit even if you are not big beer lover, just to taste something not mainstream.
