There’s no better time than summer to enjoy light bites and a tipple. And while you’ve probably heard of a “pub crawl” — one drink per pub at multiple bars in a single night, the foodie version of that activity is to eat your way through any given city stopping throughout various neighborhoods to enjoy small plates and sips.

We combined the crawl idea with one of our favorite forms of food: Spanish-style tapas. We did a Prague tapas crawl in February and had so much fun that we are sharing our results. The pleasing combination of outdoor seating, a good cheese board or antipasto platter, and a crisp glass of wine, is the perfect antidote to sweltering summer nights.

With so many choices, it’s impossible to do the entire Prague tapas crawl in one day. So how should you design your summer tapas crawl? Here are a few tips:

  • Select your start and endpoints. No need to stay in one neighborhood. A tram ride between stops is a great way to see the city.
  • End close to home; you’ll be glad for this advice after several glasses of wine!
  • Choose how many places you want to visit in advance. We recommend 3-5 total stops.
  • Finally, pick what appeals to you from these tried-and-tested locations on our tapas list (ratings based on a maximum of 5 chiles). 

These are our favorite stops on a summertime tapas crawl in Prague:
