It's very multi-cultural and generally one heck of a party.
|Me and some of my favorite (former) students!|
On the top of the tap is a touch-screen computer. You select your number and start pouring your own beer. There's no waiting in line. There's no waiting for a bartender even. You can practice making the perfect pour, which I'm getting startlingly good at.
|It takes skills. (Disclaimer: That is not my arm.)|
|Some locations have actual buttons rather than a nifty touch-screen.|
|That's us... The winners with 44 half-liters of beer.|
From the touch screen, you can also select songs for the music queue (we always manage to get a healthy amount of Queen in there) and order food which the waitress or bartender will deliver to you. (Remember, drinking on an empty stomach is not recommended. The PUB Burger, however, is highly recommended.)
Don't worry, for those of you who don't like beer (to whom I ask, "What are you doing in the CR?") there's a hefty selection of liquors behind the bar. (Yes, there is tequila...) You can also order those from the touch screen if you're too lazy to get up and walk to the bar.
Careful though. Not getting up between beers can be dangerous.
The PUB is a lot of fun and it's a great excuse to get to see my old students. It's a nice way to keep in touch with some of the students I've become closer too and consider friends. It's also a fun way for them to practice their English without me really having to play teacher.
I mean, I always spoke my best Chinese when I was drunk, sitting in the front seat of a cab, yammering away at the driver on the way home from Taipei. At least, I thought so. They seemed entertained. Nothing better than someone with loosened inhibitions speaking as much of a foreign language as possible because they simply just don't care anymore.
I honestly think it's great. Too many times my students get so caught up in what they want to say and how exactly to say it, that they just don't.
Reservations are recommended as it's difficult to just walk in and get a table, especially at the location in Prague 1.
