COMING HOME IS FINDING YESTERDAY TODAY...ROCK ON!
We are a unique neighbourhood Burger Bar and Bistro, with an unpretentious attitude, where everyone who enters is made to feel like family. Sad Mans Tongue Bar & Bistro , is a an American Burger Bar tucked away on a side street which pays homage to the pop and music culture of the 1950's and 60’s with a bit of the 1940’s and 70’s thrown in for good measure. As they say it's where the 1950’s and 60’s meet the 21st century.
When owner, Steve Galle, opened Sad Man’s, he set out to open a place that served good fair priced food and drinks and provide an interesting fun environment to dine in -- never pretentious, never gimmicky...good food, good fun, good friends!
In a short amount of time the restaurant flourished and has been ranked highly in Prague and throughout Europe over and over. Steve and his Staff have been humbled and thank you, our friends!
Sad Man’s Tongue Bar and Bistro was recently voted as having the
- #1 Burger In Europe by Big 7 Travel for 2020
- Recently won a TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award for 2020
Despite the accolades, Sad Man’s Tongue is a small unpretentious place that is not too proud to say we need help to survive due to COVID 19 travel and government restaurant restrictions.
The COVID pandemic has wreaked havoc in all our communities, but if you could see it in your heart to help us, here is why you should.
For those that live here in Prague we are your local dive bar and you come because you know you are friends and part of the family. For the expats we are the local bar with great burgers that reminds you of a joint back home, where you knew you would always find your friends...a place you knew you’d be welcome.
We all have a place that when we go home no matter where we are living now, it will be there, and you can expect to see some familiar faces. Many of the students, expats, foreign travelers locals, tourists, and business travellers that come in for food are looking for something more. A familiar place, to make them feel as if they are in their old watering hole and perhaps an old friend will walk through the door. Our local regulars already have that of course but they become that friend to the strangers that walk in, whether they are just moving here or only here temporarily, they are included in our family. It is one of the reasons we do not have televisions. We want people to talk to each other and engage with one another, as so often they do.
For all of us wherever we come from, Sad Man’s little restaurant dive bar is where some come for their first date, that first kiss or where they get engaged. Some have even had their wedding reception here. Some couples unfortunately have their last date, BUT ITS NOT BECAUSE OF THE FOOD, trust me! It’s where students celebrate finishing an exam, passing an exam, or having an extra shot because they have to take an exam over. It's birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations...it’s just a great place to meet up and EAT & DRINK with friends!
It’s here for the business customers entertaining clients. While he or she could afford that big steak, our business customers bring their clients here because they know they will be taken good care of and their client will have a wonderfully unique experience!
It’s always been about more than a meal or a drink. It’s about Celebrating Life with old and new friends - surrounded by great Music, Food and Good Cheer -- Together as a Community!
We are the candle burning in the window, the ribbon around the tree, the solo light to let you know that you are welcome and expected. It is home, even if it is just for a night. That is the best gift a bar and restaurant owner can give to you, our friends!
We are aiming to raise enough funds so that we can help to continue to be here for YOU. Your donations will help pay for operating expenses that have accumulated due to the first lockdown and help Sad Man’s survive new COVID measures and restrictions.
Sad Man’s is now in your hands. COVID-19 has changed the world, and we know that many businesses and individuals are struggling. Sad Man’s is on the precipice of permanent closure. We’d like to be here for you. The world needs examples of hope, perseverance and kindness.
We are here to ask for your support, so we can continue to offer you, Sad Man’s Tongue Bar & Bistro, a venue rooted in Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, the 1950’s, 60’s Rock, Pop, Pin Up Culture, Kustom Kulture, Retro, Vintage and a little bit of Ink.
Things sure aren’t what they used to be -- This is our chance with your help to preserve a great little place!
Many Thanks & Great BIG HUGS from ALL of YOUR FRIENDS at Sad Man’s Tongue Bar & Bistro!
