Best Sports Bars In Prague

If you are looking for a bar to watch to live sport with English commentary, then you have come to right place. While many local Czech bars will have a TV in the corner showing limited live sports, as a lot of them won’t have cable TV. The commentary will definitely be in Czech. Here are our picks for the best sports bars in Prague. Prague is one of last majour cities in Europe to allow smoking in bars and restaurants but for not much longer as a complete smoking is coming into law on May 31 this year (2017).
