Whilst records state that the original brewing rights for the U Fleku are dated 1499, it is highly probably brewing took place here long before then. 1499 is the official date though & so the U Fleku celebrated its 500th Birthday recently. It is comprised of many rooms, but these are usually reserved for special functions or coach parties. The casual visitor will more than likely be ushered, or drawn by the noise, to the centrally located open air area courtyard, this houses many long bench tables and a few trees!. Your beer will be brought to you by one of the many suited waiters - you do not have to order it, just sit down. When I first came here in 1992, we ran a table tab on the back of a beer mat, however, it appears this practise has ceased somewhat, and it is now customary to pay the waiter for the beer on delivery.
Choice is limited, just the One House Beer. But what a Beer!!. A dark, spicy brew that comes in a 0.4 ltr glass and costs (2002) 49 Kcs, which is ~$1.60. It is expensive, at least twice that of anywhere else in Prague–but the beer here is simply the one of the best dark beers in the Czech Republic. The surroundings are excellent and an imbibational inspiration. If you walk here you will no doubt pass the many rows of German Coaches parked outside. The U Fleku is very commercial now, & it clearly caters for parties of Germans, who have a very cheap drinking outlet for excellent beer that is not very far from home. Souvenirs can be bought on the way out (right hand side booth as you leave).
Put simply, this place is a legend, sure it has changed over the years and it is commercial, but then, so now is Prague. It is still a "Must Do" if you ever find yourself wondering aimlessly around the capitol with time on your hands. The U Fleku serves arguably one on the best Dark Beers in the Czech Republic & is the Best Beer Hall in Europe outside of Germany IMVHO.

I got chills walking in. First place I drank a beer with my daughter. Service exceptional. The guys will keep filling your beer until you say no. Say yes to the shots you will be offered. Memorable to say the least.

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!
