Absintherie Bar and Museum
Welcome to our Absintherie Bar and Museum.
The Absintherie Bar and Museum was opened several years ago, with the aim to introduce to you not only the taste of quality absinthe but also the correct way of its serving. Our trained staff will be happy to answer any questions regarding all the products we offer in our Absintherie, and will show you how absinthe should be served.
Our mission is to disprove all the superstitions and myths about absinthe, green flying fairies and so on. Many people still believe that absinthe is something dangerous and forbidden. However, nowadays, absinthe is known as premium kind of spirits, produced as pure herbs distillate. This is why we aim to disprove all the rumours that absinthe must be green and drinking it will bring you strange sensations.
In our Absintherie, you can try about 100 kinds of absinthe. Based on these, we have also prepared special absinthe cocktails, absinthe ice-cream or slush. You can also get an absinthe beer, absinthe chocolate and other absinthe products. In other words, anyone can choose their favourite.
Absintherie is not only a bar but also an absinthe museum. We are one of the biggest collectors of absinthe and related objects in Central Europe. In our museum, you can find about 250 different bottles from all around the world. A few of the exhibits are for sale, although most of the bottles cannot be found in the market anymore, and you can only see them in our Absinthe museum. We also have on display other objects such as fountains, special glasses, strainers and other tools used for absinthe serving.
On top of all that, you will also find an absinthe shop in our Absintherie. You can buy the whole bottles to take away, serving tools or little souvenirs to remind you of your visit in this extraordinary place.
You can visit us either in Jilska Street or at Namesti Franze Kafky. Each of the bars has a slightly different atmosphere, which is why you are welcome to visit both of the premises. In the Absintherie in Jilska street, we also hold regular exhibitions of paintings or photographs, and on some days you can enjoy your evening accompanied by live music thanks to our excellent pianist. Therefore, even if you have already visited us, you are more than welcome to come anytime again.
We are looking forward to your visit and are wishing you an amazing absinthe experience.
