The renowned “Stopkova Pivnice” pub has always been one of the pillars of Czech social and cultural life in Brno. A pub was opened on this site as early as the mid 19th century. It gained its fame after the arrival of its new owner, the ingenious publican Jaroslav Stopka, who took over the original “Jonákova Pub” in 1910. more >>

The pub enjoyed a strategic position for business - in the very centre of the Czech promenade and Czech activities in Brno. It was always regarded as a “classy” establishment and Pilsner beer has been served here on tap with no interruptions. Students, intellectuals and city folk used to meet here, partly thanks to its proximity to the Czech bookshop. The character and atmosphere of the pub has remained untouched even after extensive reconstruction work, which included the repair and restoration of the façade, undertaken by the Czech painter and draughtsman Láďa Novák (1865–1944), a well-known Prague bohemian, who also decorated the interiors in the U Fleků Pub in Prague. The foundations of the building in Česká Street have some Gothic and Renaissance features. Period advertisements always claimed that the best Pilsner beer in Brno was to be found at the Stopkova Pub. And even today you can judge for yourselves the quality of the Pilsner Urquell lager served here tapped from their beer tanks. Stopkova Pivnice offers seating areas on two floors. The total number of seats is 307. The premises are fully air-conditioned and divided into smoking and non-smoking areas. Apart from Pilsner Urquell, there are also other beers served on tap, such as Velkopopovický Kozel, Master 13° Polotmavý and Birell Světlý. Mr. Matěj Kovacs, Stopkova Master Chef, recommends the delicious Knuckle of Lamb Roasted in Rosemary. << less
