Cash Only Bar
Time Out says
An offshoot of the popular Hemingway Bar serving cocktails in a no-frills environment between Old Town and the National Theater
Prague’s cocktail scene contains a range of personalities, from nostalgic speakeasies inspired by travels abroad to quirky themes and elaborate presentation styles. Cash Only Bar, on the other hand, does away with flair and flamboyance to stick to the basics – no reservations, no credit cards, no unnecessary extras – but don’t mistake this approach for a lack of interest. The carefully crafted cocktail menu centers around seasonal flavors and novelty ingredients. The satisfyingly simple bar menu eliminates difficult choices by sticking to hot dogs in homemade buns, potato chips, and popcorn. Throughout this long, narrow space no opportunity is wasted in setting a high quality, chilled out experience.
Time Out tip: Arrive early to secure space and seriously, don’t forget to stop at an ATM for some local currency – it’s right there in the name.
