Orange Bar, Prague

Orange Bar is pretty close by to us and has decent reviews. It's a little tricky to find, down a couple of side-streets, but there's a nice orange-shaped sign outside to let you know when you're there.

From the street

From the outside, it looks pretty normal, right? Inside, though, it reminded me of a bar in Dune or something. The only lights had orange filters, and all the walls were molded to give the appearance of being dug out of a cave.

The bar shelves were all integrated into the back wall. The other walls had fake columns with cubbies for desert plants.

The cocktail list leaned heavily towards rum-based beach drinks – mai tais, piña coladas, zombies etc. There's also a good list of classics, too. Hampton went for (of course) a manhattan. I tried out the mai tai but it was a little too sweet for me.

We were there during a massive thunderstorm and didn't have umbrellas, so we stayed for another round (or two). The moscow mule was much better. Get that! It had a physalis garnish too, which is awesome.

Orange bar has a neighbourhood feel and a fun theme. The drinks are sweet, but tasty, so I'd stick to non-tiki drinks (unless you're a particular fan).
