    On THIS THREAD I recommended a restaurant in Žižkov - you can get the tram 9 from Olšanské Náměstí - fairly close to where you are staying. Restaurace Sklep is opposite Viktorka - the football ground for Viktoria Žižkov.

    There is also a restaurant up the TV tower.

    Further out from you, walk up to Ohrada and there are local restaurants serving traditional food, and pubs too. But you may need a bit more Czech here, than elsewhere.i

    Žižkov is full of plenty of pubs, however now it is worse than in early ninethies. You just walk on the street and try some. Down, between Olšanská street and W.Churchil sqaure is popular pubs of students (Economical Institute). This area is older, houses from end of 19.century. Up, from Olšanská to Jarov is part of panel houses from communist era. I donť know this area very well, so I rather recomend the older part.
