The historical U Čápa beerhouse is located in Obilní trh, where more than 100 years ago new fathers came to drink to the health of their children born in the nearby Zemská porodnice, now known as the Obilní trh maternity hospital.
The U Čápa restaurant existed on these premises already in 1901, according to preserved photos. The beerhouse itself was founded in 1960 and was operated as a traditional pub by the Czechoslovak National company Restaurace a jídelny II. Since 2013, when the U Čápa beerhouse became a part of the Con Gusto premium restaurants, unique photos of new dads and their friends and families celebrating the arrival of their babies in the U Čápa pub have been taken. These photos have been framed and hang on the beerhouse’s walls, and dozens of new ones are added every year.
In the first half of 2018, a complete reconstruction took place of the U Čápa pub, which took six weeks, the result being a modern and simple interior that respects the past of this building and is complemented by contemporary photographs, postcards, and pictures of the monuments and dominant features of Brno.
This restaurant in the centre of Brno has 117 seats indoors and in the summer months also 114 seats in its new garden right in the park on Obilní trh, which is conveniently located near a playground. There is also a wall-mounted TV in the beerhouse, thanks to which you can watch sports with your friends - Kometa Brno hockey matches , football, championships and many more.
