We’re huge fans of Prague here at the Good Globe. It’s colourful, it’s Gothic, it’s friendly and it’s great fun. Next time you visit this beautiful city, why not give a little back while drinking a Czech beer or two? Here are 5 places in Prague that will not only fill that beer shaped hole after a day of sightseeing, but they’re also amazing organisations that help the local community or raise awareness of social issues…

Mlsná Kavka

Drinking for a Good Cause in Prague - Mlsna Kavka

Address: Sokolovská 327/29, 186 00 Praha 8 · Public transport: 2 minute walk from Florenc (8, 21) tram station

Mlsná Kavka is a training restaurant, founded as a joint project of Green Doors and Filip Kavka Smiggels. The restaurant supports and trains people with mental health problems, helping them improve their social and vocational skills. By working here, they can regain self confidence so that they can one day return to the open labour market. Mlsná Kavka gives them the opportunity to interact with customers on a daily basis.

It is a non-smoking vegetarian restaurant, and the food there is of a very high quality. They only use seasonal ingredients, and cook brunches on Sundays.

Therapy Restaurant, Café & Shop

As described on their website, Therapy Restaurant is “an oasis of calm in downtown Prague”. They help current and recovering drug addicts through art therapy, with the ceramics they make being sold in the shop. They also employ recovering addicts to help them in their rehabilitation. Therapy has a quirky interior, it’s centrally located and is easy to find, making it a great place to grab a drink after spending all day in the city.

AddressVlašská 25, 118 00 Praha 1 · Public transport: 10 minute walk from Pohořelec (22, 57) tram station

For outdoor seating and a great view of Prague castle, make sure you check out Garden Café Taussig. They too offer employment to those with mental health problems so that they can develop their work and social skills in a professional setting. The café strongly believes the best way to help is to provide a supportive environment where they can work on their self-reliance, personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Garden Café Taussig serves a wide range of coffees, hot drinks, soft drinks and alcohol, as well as a small selection of food and snacks. It is a seasonal café and is only open in the warmer months (generally April to October) – unfortunately it was closed when we visited. But be sure to check out their Facebook page for when they are open.

Kafé Afrika

Drinking for a Good Cause in Prague - Kafe Afrika

Address: Vojtěšská 9, 110 00 Praha 1 · Public transport: 4 minute walk from Myslíkova (14) tram station

With a beautiful interior and unique menu, Kafé Afrika is something a little different in the heart of Prague. They employ immigrants and refugees from Africa who are living in the Czech Republic. These people have faced many problems, including a lack of work experience, discrimination by employers and possessing an unrecognised education. This creates a vicious cycle where they can’t find employment. Kafé Afrika is a training café, and its employees are participants of a project brought to life by the African-Czech organisation Humanitas Afrika. The aim of the project is to help integrate immigrants and refugees into the local job market.

We had a fantastic night out there. We had the yams with ginger dip, fried sweet potatoes with avocado dip, couscous with almonds, raisins and cinnamon, and a black eye beans stew. They serve a range of drinks, including African beers.

Kavárna POTMĚ

No fixed address

For something completely different, check out Kavárna POTMĚ – a “café in the dark” which tours the Czech Republic (therefore no fixed address). This touring café has been going around the country for 11 years, and offers patrons a unique experience of being in complete darkness. The café employs blind staff, with all proceeds going to charity. Visiting this touring café is said to be a strange feeling, but ultimately it is meant to be a joyful and unique occasion to support a good cause.

Make sure to check out their Facebook page to see their current whereabouts.
