I visited this famous/infamous place at 6pm on a Wednesday evening (end of March 2012). I confess to being a bit apprehensive after reading reviews (on here and elsewhere) but was determined to try it. As we entered through the main door we were steered in to the left (no choice). I suspect that most of it was closed off as it was relatively quiet. Fair enough, we found a couple of seats at a table (feel free to share a table in Prague!) and before long two mugs of dark lager arrived.

Firstly the beer; I have to say it is pretty damn good - nice quaffable brew with a nice head and some sweetness to it. Please note that it is served in a 0.4L (400ml) mugs and this serving size coupled with the price per mug makes it probably the most expensive beer in Prague (apart from hotels).

The place itself was quite nice; a medium sized room with dark panelled walls, dark wooden beamed ceiling hung with a couple of rustic type chandaliers. And there was a nice clock on the end wall. Rustic "beerhall" tables and chairs. No escaping the resident accordian playing man - I suppose it helps with the atmosphere they are trying to create.

Then later the waiter comes over offering the shots of whateveritis and understood when we politely but firmly declined. These are more expensive than the beer apparently.

I had a second beer while my companion was finishing theirs and enjoyed it. Been there, done that!

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!

Had visited here once before, in 1991. Now I know it has morphed into a real touristy place, but I wanted to go back for just 1 round, as well as having Alewife experience it for the first time. We stopped by on the eve of 02OCT13, after a good dinner at Pivo Dum and then a lot of walking around town during the evening...

It's an easy place to spot, what with the big-ass clock hanging out front. Once in, there's a hall straight ahead with a service bar on the left. All the way back leads to their biergarten. The room to the right is a large, arched-ceiling room with dark-wooded lower walls and murals up top. Seems like that room was being used for tour groups. We hit the room to the left upon entering. It also had lots of dark wood half-way up morphing into plain white walls. Ceiling had some lovely beam-work, with lots of warm, glowing incandescent lighting. Tables were long, dark and worn, and must be shared by tourist and local alike. Yeah, they only have 1 bier, but it's a solid dark lager nonetheless (though a bit pricey). Service was spot-on, with our biers being right there. We did encounter the schnapps vendors, but they weren't pushy at all. It was a fun time for 1 round, for old times sake! Prosit!!

My wife and I went here in May 2013. Fun atmosphere! We just walked in after hearing about it and got seated in the "show" portion of the restaurant/ brewery. They also have a restaurant area without the show. However, the restaurant was busy and we got seated and watched a vaudeville style show, complete with cross dressing. We sat at a large table with bench style seating. We met many new friends here from all over the world. They have one beer that they brew there. Very tasty! Not much to say about about it because that's all you're going to get. A dark beer without much depth but very easy to drink. I would return here in a heartbeat!

If you want a true Prague experience you need to stop in at "Fleck's Place" during the Orthodox Christmas season. The place was packed with people from every corner of the world. It was very loud and sounded like the United Nations cafeteria. We had already eaten, so we did not try the food, but from what I have been told it is average. That wonderful beer of theirs, however, is delicious, strong, and never stops coming to the table!
