U Fleku crafts and controls its atmosphere to provide a peak tourist experience. It is a bright and lively beer hall, often with musician(s) playing traditional German and Czech songs while walking between its long benches. Sometimes the crowd will sing along. It's raucous, in a Disneyland sort of way.

They serve on beer, which is a bit less than the typical Czech Pub which will serve light, dark and blends of one of the major players. Fortunately, the beer is good. They also do try to move shots of Becherovka. I don't recall if other liquors are on the menu.

The service is much more attentive than is the norm in the Czech republic, and may come off as a bit pushy. I half think that's the noise in the room, the rest is part of U Fleku's charm. With that said, mind you, nothing is free. The best strategy for dealing with the Becherovka guy is to take one (it's a nice digestif) and don't drink it until you are ready to leave. It is unfortunate that Becherovka tastes better slightly chilled.

U Fleku's goulash is among the best I have had in Prague, and does beat pricier restaurants in locations better suited to tending the volume of tourists that U Fleku draws to an otherwise unremarkable section of New Town.

A famous beer hall. It should be visited when in Prague. Probably wonderful if you are in a large group. However if you are there with a couple of friends two beers will be sufficient.

Great historic brewery in Prague. They only serve one beer as they have since they first opened, but it is a delicious dark lager! Cool atmosphere including German style beer halls and live accordion music. Simple but tasty menu as well. Highly recommended if you are in the city!

I'm not sure what I can say about U Fleku that hasn't already been said, other than if you're on the fence you should go. It's an experience that shouldn't be missed.

It can get very busy but they're also very good at getting you in as quickly as possible. Go early if you don't want to wait in line, or at least try for an off-hour (remember this also depends on the season that you're there).

I personally loved the beer, and even my wife who's not into dark beers thought it was pretty good. We had some goulash and thought it was some of the best we'd had in Prague.

The ambiance is what makes it though. The rooms, the guests, the waiters, the wandering minstrels... all without a hint of being "touristy" while still being one of Prague's most touristy locations!

Absolutely not to be missed!
