Time Out says

A traditional Czech pub and former hub of 20th-century political dissidence housed in a 14th-century building.

This “House at the Golden Tiger” claims a place on Prague’s historic pub list as one of 20th-century Czech author Bohumil Hrabal’s frequent faves. Other past patrons include political influencers, such as discussions of US-Czech friendship between Bill Clinton and Vaclav Havel over Pilsner. When the walls have witnessed this level of influential history, one can’t expect to find many open seats between the long-term regulars. Arriving near the 3pm opening and brushing up on a few key Czech phrases (velké pivo, prosím = “a large beer, please”) will help to endear you to an establishment that could survive just fine without an international tourist crowd.

Time Out tip: Indulge in a selection of local bar snacks, including fragrant, marinated beer cheese and grilled pork or sausage served with mustard and horseradish.
