Myths and legends about our tavern


From 1375, when the tavern was first opened, kings and smugglers used to come here. It is said that Czech kings used secret passages from the castle to get into the tavern and get drunk to forget their problems about Czech lands. Magister Kelly and Arcimboldo, Jaroslav Hašek and Karel Čapek, Mozart and Ondřej Soukup all used to drink here.


It is said that genius W.A. Mozart wanted to compose „Velkou Ranní" during his last visit in Prague. However from unknown reasons he ended up with „Malá Noční“.


At the end of the 18th century, the owner of our tavern was some "regimentstambor" called Krügler - famous showman. He could whistle and use a wooden spoon like he was playing the drums. Or he was just telling stories to his guests.


In the front of the room he had a picture of Czech king Václav IV., with a beer in his hand. When Jaroslav Hašek was listening to the stories, he said: "... it’s not possible for such a man to work under the king’s picture.“ And he grabbed the picture and kicked it in half. The incident was followed up by slaps, punches and blood.


History of the tavern contains other bloody events. One night the innkeeper tried to steal a small amount of coins from the sleeping landlord. One thing led to another and the innkeeper has accidentally killed this „poor guy" and sent him into the cannals. However, as hen children were playing outside, their ball fell into the cannals and as they tried to pull it out, they found the body of the man. The murderer was arrested and sentenced to life in prison and the tavern was closed for a few days. For the first and last time in its history...


That’s why it is said, that "brabantský král" is the oldest, almost nonstop opened tavern.


Come drink, eat, and be merry!
