With its dim lighting, ghostly atmosphere and woodcut artwork, entering Prague is a little like walking into a Kafka novel. Although it’s on the bar vortex where Kingsland Road meets Old Street, it’s often overlooked – a shame, as it’s pretty good.
The menu tucked into empty bottles placed on each tabletop lists 30-plus cocktails (around £7), but many drinkers are here for the Czech beers, among them the rarely found Budvar Dark on tap, and for cheap Czech-influenced snacks such as roll mops, marinated cheese and pickled sausage.
The presence here of the St Vitus Gallery adds a weird, creative touch to some of the artwork; the place is filled with paintings and illustrations by local artists.

Cosy little bar in Shoreditch - with the friendliest bar staff ever. Sampled a range of absinthe cocktails, Haribo shots and Oreo shots here - all very authentic tasting. Dim lighting and an ecclectic mix of cosy chairs and vintage sofas make this a great little place to kick back, chill out and enjoy drinks with a friends or a partner. Apparently it's been around for 11 years - only wish I had discovered it sooner!
