Consumatorium Reviews: Hemingway Bar in Prague, Czech Republic

Recently, the entire Consumatorium staff went on a field trip to the Hemingway Bar in Prague, Czech Republic. 

Not only is the Hemingway Bar a fabulous craft bar, but they specialize in their namesake’s favorite drinks – absinthe, rum and champagne. Specialize somehow doesn’t do it justice, though. Their cocktail menu includes three pages of absinthe choices alone. You can find their full and sorta unreal cocktail menu here.

Dave had a Lavender Martini, which he loved.



Will had a Sazerac and a Corpse Reviver 2. Both Excellent. The bartender proposed a combo with half cognac and half rye in the Sazerac instead of 100% of one or the other. Superb. 



The Hemingway Bar is highly recommended if you find yourself behind the ol’ Iron Curtain or, if you’re really into mixology, it’s pretty much worth the trip by itself.

The bar also has a set of clearly displayed bar rules which we at the Consumatorium think should be a hallmark of any great bar:

HEMINGWAY BAR RULES
PRAVIDLA HEMINGWAY BARU
1. Each guest will be seated. The bartender will gladly show 
you to a suitable place to sit.
2. Do not move the furniture or change seats. If you do not 
like where you are sitting, tell the bartender, who will reseat 
you if possible.
3. Do not talk loudly (i.e. do not shout or make a noisy scene).
4. Speak politely and do not use vulgar language.
5. Do not talk to other guests that you do not know; respect 
their privacy.
6. If you want to buy somebody a drink, please ask the 
bartender first. He will find out if that person is interested 
in your offer.
7. Do not use a computer in the bar. We will be happy to 
recommend an internet café.
8. As we want our guests to feel comfortable, the moment 
there is no place to sit, we are full and cannot allow more 
people into the bar.
9. Guests seated in the non-smoking section who would like 
to smoke must leave their drinks inside and go outside 
in front of the bar to smoke.
10. Respect the instructions of the bar staff at all times.

I don’t know what it takes to become a professional mixologist, but I’m going to night school at my own home bar to achieve that status. For now, I’m an amateur cocktail creator who enjoys learning about new drinks and rediscovering the classics.
