"Paying for beer only" Prague Local Custom Tip by anglosaxon

Prague Local Customs: 352 reviews and 436 photos

If you intend a visit to a Czech bar then you'll find a slightly different way of paying. It's rare to find anybody standing in a truly Czech bar as many tables are provided for sitting at. When the waiter brings your first beer he will generally not ask for money at that time. If you ask for a second beer, this will start a tab i.e. he will bring the beer and then a piece of paper will appear on the table with pen marks on it. Each line represents one beer. At the end of the evening he counts the lines and then you pay. There's information on Czech menus and barfood here
