Fred's Top Picks
My 'Top Picks' are those pubs I always make an effort to visit when I am in town.
Fred lives in Los Angeles but often travels to Prague..

These are pubs I very much enjoyed but they are just a hair below the level of a "Top Pick" or I need another visit or two to confirm that they are worth a "Top Pick."
Zenklova 252/13, Prague 180 00
Únětice 10° and 12º plus 9 rotating taps. The pub moved in late 2017 (not far from the original location).
Markétská 28/1, Prague 169 01
There are actually two drinking places in the monastery courtyard. The original Šenk which is a restaurant and the new Sypka (Granary) which is more of a tap room with limited food selection (weekdays from 2pm, weekends from 10am)
Charvátova 33/1, Prague 110 00
Small, bare bones Pilsner Urquell pub. Said by some locals to have the freshest Urquell in town.
Benátská 4/1965, Prague 128 00
Student pub near the Charles University botanical gardens. Beers are mostly from Kamenice.
Římská 2135/45, Prague 120 00
Originally listed as a taproom, they do have a small brewery on site. They claimed all the beers were brewed onsite. Connected to the Cistercian Monastery Osek
Tachovské náměstí 288/6, Prague 130 00
Corner pub with good food and a good beer selection. Related to U Šumavy and U Vodoucha and all three are very similar.
Štěpánská 3, Prague 120 00
Same owners as U Vodoucha and U Slovanske Lipy and pretty much identical layout of the pub. More taps, though.
Čestmírova 390/5, Prague 140 00
Currently only one the three bars is open.
