The next few beer gardens on the list are a bit less known than the first few mentioned. However this is list in not an ordering of the best beer gardens, so don’t discount the following options if you are looking for an authentic beer garden in Prague. In each one you’ll find delicious beer, some tasty snacks and great atmosphere.
Touted as the “brewery and taproom under one roof”, Dva Kohouti is the brainchild of two well known local brewers from the business: brew Adam Matuška of Matuška Pivovar and Lokal’s master barman Lukaš Svoboda. It is also a part of Ambiente, a large restaurant conglomerate with a wide range of eating and drinking establishments throughout the city. The two men (hence the name) provide a much more diverse range of beer that you’ll find at most beer gardens in Prague. They often have up to 10 beers flowing through the taps, offering lagers, pilsners, IPAs and APAs.
The atmosphere is a bit younger than some of the more traditional beer gardens, with an hip urban vibe. While there are lots of the traditional long tables, both inside and outside of the tap room, typical of beer gardens, there is often the option to stand at high-top tables in front of the steel beer tanks.

While it had a rough start, Kuchyň which originally set out to offer a truly traditional eating experience at the steps of the Prague Palace, has now changed its game plan and seems to have found its market and niche. The restaurant sits just off Hradčanské namesti, which is the square outside the Prague Palace gates. They have several dining rooms within the building, but more importantly (for those reading here), they also have two levels of outdoor spaces. The first is directly off the dining areas, with long tables and benches covered in large umbrellas. But they also have a significant patch of lush green grass at the far end of the tables as well as an entire level just below with a few benches and platforms. You can stretch out on the grass with friends or your dog and enjoy the best part of this beer garden – the view.
Most views in Prague brag about being able to see the Prague Castle, but Kuchyň can brag that they have the best view FROM the Prague Castle. As you sip your favorite drink, you and your companions can enjoy the rooftops of Malostranska (Lesser Town), across the Vltava River, all the way to the Žižkov Tower in the distance.

While most those visiting Prague have their goals set on seeing the Prague Castle, they might miss out on visiting another important site of a castle in Prague, high above the Vltava River at Vyšehrad. Here you’ll find a large grass, shady park enclosed by the palace walls. And here on the battlement walls, you can enjoy a much more relaxed and quiet type of beer garden than some of the others on this list.
The view from the wall is quiet impressive and unlike one you’ll see from any of the more popular tourist sites in the center of Prague. This view is of some of the lesser-known but still important and impressive neighborhoods of Prague. If you’re heading there, be sure to keep your eyes on the wall after passing through the Vyšehrad Gates and watch for the entrance through the wall.

Everyone knows about the Charles Bridge and most visiting Prague will make it their mission to cross the bridge at some point. But why not take the opportunity to contemplate the bridge from below? That’s the incredible draw of Klub Lávka. Located on the right bank of the Vltava River, the Footbridge Club offers the incredibly unique experience of sitting and sipping some delicious Czech beer or even a nice Moravian wine, while sitting at water’s level at the foot of the bridge.
Klub Lávka, known more as an upscale restaurant, may not advertise as a beer garden but it checks all of the boxes: outdoor space – check, offer of beer – check, great atmosphere – check!
