One of Prague’s most famous beer gardens comes back to life at PARK Riegrovy sady
When Riegrovy sady, one of the largest beer gardens in Prague, shuttered suddenly last year after the city chose not to extend the lease with the previous operator – it took everyone by surprise. The beer garden in the park which has operated since 1933, would often bring well over the 1400-person capacity to watch sporting events and to socialize. So, it’s no surprise social media lit up with rumors a few weeks ago when a vintage Citroen food truck appeared and began serving.
Now restaurateur David Salomon, who also owns Stodola House in Háje and Severka, has fully taken over Riegrovy sady, which is now going under the moniker PARK Riegrovy sady.
The new restaurant/beer garden promises to be much more than it’s previous incarnation, with an expanded experience, that promises “first-class Plzeňský Prazdroj, lots of great food and unique cultural events”. For example, coffee, Aperol Spritz or homemade cakes and buns are also on offer.
PARK Rigrovy sady is also bringing back culture to the stage – something that had previously been a part of the beer garden since the First Republic. The head of culture in Riegrovy sady Park has announced that a series of music concerts called “Music in the Park”, which kicks off on June 16 with the band Chinaski. The plan is live music from June to August, twice per week. Future acts include Anna K, Mirai, Banjo band Ivan Mládek, Robert Křesťan and Druhá ią and other famous Czech acts.
