The Alchemist Bar

Choose Your Fate

During the reconstruction of the house at Provaznická Street, we found an old chest under a loose plank on the second floor. At the bottom of the chest, there was a pack of tarot cards covered in dust. From the underside, one could see the shaken writings done by the hand of the old Alchemist. The burden bonded with the secret of the old emperor caused him much suffering so he decided to get rid of it. However, he knew very well that it was too much for one person to bear so he inflicted the curse onto 26 heads, sharing the secret among 26 characters of the old tarot cards.

To this day, we still haven't solved the whole secret and that’s why we would like to ask you for help. The youngest offspring of the Alchemist hereby offers you a hundred thousand Czech crowns if you crack the secret that the emperor used to hold so dear. Visit our bar, enjoy one of the great cocktails, choose your first card from the Guardian of the chest and set out on a great quest for Rudolph II’s treasure.

The Story of The Alchemist Bar

Announced by rhythmical sounds of horse hoofs, guests in black cowls arrive at the Prague Castle. Startled ravens scramble and disperse into the blackness of dark clouds. Only one of them deliberately chooses one of the riders and sits on his shoulder. Rudolf II., the head of the Roman Empire, ends up noticing it and shows a hint of smile. His search has reached its end. He has found the Alchemist.

The alchemist had settled down in the house at Provaznická Street and began to create cocktails. He would mix such delicious drinks that even the Emperor himself had forgotten about the elixir of youth because the idea of leaving the world in the caress of Alchemist's liquor was too tempting. Just prior to his death, the Alchemist had hidden the greatest secret in the world, which he had wheedled from the withered emperor earlier, and sworn that those words are to never see the light of day again.

Four Centuries Later

Even to his offspring had the Alchemist told about the secret only as much as was fit for them to hide at the bottom of each drink they would serve to their customers. This way, their drinks would become unforgettable.

The Alchemist’s offspring knew that anyone to have tasted more than ten drinks becomes capable of reading the whole secret in his heart, yet his mind would be so enthralled by the drink's sweetness he would not be able to remember. They think that this keeps the secret safe. Try your luck and taste the mysterious cocktails at the same place the old Alchemist lived. We are looking forward to meet you.
