What you'll do

Prague being one of the most popular places in the world to legally buy and drink Absinthe. This is not a pub bar crawl experience - drinking fake colored vodka based Absinthe in multiple bars in a single night. This is a deeply personal, comfortable and relaxing experience at my own music club&bar called The Bourgeois Pig. No rush & stress here. You're drinking slowly, listening Edith Piaf or Janis Joplin on vinyl and simply having fun. We explore the traditional Absinthe rituals and taste sampling of drinking the real thing - Absinthe up to 80% alcohol from various world class makers and brands. Simply, you'll become an expert on Absinthe - The Muse of Rebel Poets. After the sample tasting and exploring the history, mystery and rituals of this infamous green spirit, you're enjoying 3 full signature Absinthe Cocktails from our menu:

1. Edith Piaf's La Vie En Rose
2. L'Absinthe Spectaculaire
3. L'Opium

Yes, the experience is strongly green, elegant and delicious. After the Absinthe Experience you're more than welcome to stay for a while at my bar filled with vinyl records and interesting guests from all around the world. There’s always something fascinating to talk about. And, of course, taste! Please check out my place www.thepig.cz Just come thirsty, hungry & See you soon!

Our experience was fantastic! We were greeted by Martin right at 6pm. He curated his bar with really cool furniture and decor from flea markets and antiques shops and has such a cool aesthetic. He set us up at the bar with a platter of traditional Czech open faced sandwiches (which were so pretty I felt bad eating them) and our first cocktail. He explained the history of Absinthe, the distillation process and the different types of Absinthe there are. Overall a really fun and memorable experience!

Was unsure of what to expect before coming but ended up having an amazing night, had some cool drinks that I wouldn't have otherwise experienced, and spent hours chatting and laughing with the other guests. Martin is very knowledgeable and was a great host. Pablo is also lovely!

This is a must-do experience. Martin is a must-meet kind of person. He is simple and very down-to-earth. His dog Pablo is just so adorable. His place welcomes all and is non-judgemental. He is the owner of the bar and explains the history of absinthe in elaborate detail. He gave us a variety of absinthe flavors to taste from and also a couple of absinthe cocktails. The experience was approximately 1 hour and we ended up talking for about 3 hours. We shared our experiences about life and enjoyed the time we spent at the bar with Martin. I totally recommend this tour to not only understand absinthe but also meet Martin!! I recommend it 100%.
