Why locals love it

Its rough edged look and quality prices bring in a fair mix of the more artistic and open minded side of society. Do not expect luxury but good service, nice teas and a whiskey price that is not good for your health.

Why you should visit it

This rebellious hideout dares you to question everything. The people running this place believe in Noam Chomsky's philosophy and consider cheap booze at the bar a basic human right. Looking more like your best friends’ garage, Chomsky offers the best in casual drinking.

Special tip

There are around 100 locks on the toilet door, make sure you lock the right one.

Nice and cozy place for free spirits

Truly a hidden gem. The beer is really cheap and very tasty. You can hang out with your buddies playing chess and discussing poetry. That kind of atmosphere there is. Ironically, decor and furniture makes you feel like a starving artist but this place is certainly worth a visit!
