Experience City’s Best Bars During the “Prague Cocktail Week”

Cocktail enthusiasts in Prague rejoice! Prague Cocktail Week is taking place from May 6th to 13th.

The event offers a unique opportunity to explore the city’s vibrant cocktail scene and discover a world of new flavors.

Participating bars, representing the crème de la crème of Prague’s cocktail scene, will be offering specially priced drinks at just 155 CZK throughout the week. This is your chance to indulge in expertly crafted cocktails at a discounted rate.

Bit of History First…

Organizers decided to host the Prague Cocktail Week from May 6th to 13th because the first documented definition of the word “cocktail” was in the May 6, 1806 issue of The Balance and Columbian Repository, in a reader’s letter that asked the publication to define the word.

On May 13, 1806, the paper’s editor responded that it was a concoction of spirits, bitters, water, and sugar — essentially, the recipe for an Old Fashioned. The name was inspired by drinkers who refused to change with the times and ordered their drinks the old fashioned way: a brown spirit, sugar, water, and bitters.

Beyond the Drinks

The week promises an immersive experience beyond just delicious drinks. A rich program of workshops, tastings, and guest bartending sessions will be led by industry experts, allowing you to delve deeper into the world of mixology and unlock the secrets behind your favorite cocktails.

A Grand Finale

The festivities culminate on May 13th, which also happens to be World Cocktail Day. This special day features a grand closing event, showcasing the talents of the Czech cocktail scene through exciting bartending competitions. Witness the best bartenders battle it out in both classic and flamboyant “Flair” styles, creating stunning and innovative cocktails.
