Why you should order vodka mixed beverages at the bar

The bar at the top of the tower is crowded.

There’s a lot of people, a few more than usual, who have been coming here to meet other drinkers.

They’ve already made their reservations for the night.

“They’re all from the same place.

We are friends,” says a man with a long moustache and a white shirt.

“I like the vodka, it’s a good mix of flavours.”

“It’s great to see a drink like this, so I’ll be here for the whole evening,” says another man, wearing a blue-and-white t-shirt and jeans.

“This is the only bar in Prague,” says the bartender, smiling.

“Vodka, please!”

I’m at the end of my trip, and it’s only about 20 minutes until the start of my next day.

At 9:30pm, the bar has already been full for two days.

“You know, it depends on the people here,” the barman says.

“Some of them are here to get a drink, but others are here for their social life.

We get a lot here.

If there’s a group of people in the bar who don’t like vodka, we can get them out.”

“I love vodka, I’ve been drinking it for years,” says one man, sitting on a stool in the corner.

“My favourite drink in Prague is Vodka-Pour, but it’s hard to get one because there’s only one place,” he adds.

A few minutes later, a middle-aged woman comes in.

“Have you seen the drink?” she asks, her eyes darting to the floor.

“Yes, yes, I saw it,” the woman replies, smiling, a little surprised.

The bartender laughs.

“We just opened this place in 2013, but I don’t remember it,” she says.

I look around the bar.

“Is that a sign?” she says to a man.

He looks up, confused.

“No, no, I’m just trying to get something to drink.”

“But there’s already been a vodka-pour,” he says.

The bar is closed for the evening.
