A two-floor venue with a dangerously homely vibe, Cafe V Lese is located a couple of tram stops away from Miru Square, in the perpetually happening area of Vrsovice. The space bills itself as a ‘cabaret and activist style cafe’ and puts on an unbelievably eclectic series of events. Berserk gigs, flea markets, avant-garde performances, screenings, onstage interviews and panel discussions make up a fraction of what you’ll see on Cafe V Lese’s subterranean stage. Worth noting, also, that Krymská Street is (thanks in part to Cafe V Lese’s reputation) now home to plenty of other cool bars with late licences. So if this place is - god forbid - full, you’ll have a ton of options.
Time Out tip: Like your beer? Not so fast. Cafe V Lese has the standard pilsners, but is in fact locally famous for its range of ciders. So try those.
Bad Flash Bar: Great drinking venue with more than 200 beers to choose from. Also features traditional Czech bar snacks like pickled sausage.
Jam and Co: A great Asian fusion restaurant, that’s popular with locals and visitors alike. Lots of good vegetarian options also.
Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord: Built in 1928 by famous Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, this Catholic church is an unforgettable sight.
