The James Joyce Irish Pub


Where History meets History- 20th Anniversary of James Joyce Prague

Posted on

Right in the heart of this beautiful city on November 5 1993 the first pint of Guinness flowed from the ‘black’ fountain at the James Joyce. Little did we then realize the special if small part our cosy Irish Pub would play in the recent history of drinking, eating & conversation( the craic) in Prague.

Since then we have become part of the landscape here in this Golden City & many famous & not so famous have passed through our doors,enjoyed our unique food & supped the Black Stuff!! President Vaclav Havel, Hynek Bocan, Petr Vacek( add more) Liam Neeson, Richard Harris, Bob Geldof, Denis Hopper, Eliza Wood  & others have passed through our doors. History was indeed being made over these 20 years.

To celebrate our 20th Birthday from November 5 to November 10 we bring you the chance to enjoy another piece of history.

Long before Guinness had its creamy head & famous ‘surge’ in pubs all over Ireland people ordered ‘ A pint of plain ‘ please!! It was an Extra Dry Stout known as Porter. Now & exclusively we will bring you ‘ A Pint of Plain ‘ brewed to the exact recipe & made in the old way.

It’s just a little part of our extensive celebrations- for fuller details & a programme follow us on Facebook, James Joyce Prague Irish Pub.
