Our restaurant is divided into a non-smoking and a smoking section.
At our restaurant you get the so called “flat-head” beer that is characterised by thick, creamy foam.
Such foam, contrary to a dry „cap“, is wet and full of beer. The foam should be fine and flat on the surface, and when you take a sip or two, you should identify rings visible on the glass inside surface, the "hladinky". The foam should be thick, without large bubbles. Old brewers used to pour draught beer this way.
A little bit of history:
Švábky was a very small suburb of Brno. It stretched from the northern foot of Špilberk hill to the South and Southeast of Obilní marketplace on both sides of Údolní Street. Údolní Street, formerly called Švábka, was the centre and the only street of this former village.
From 14th to 17th century, this suburb was called platea Svevorum, Schwabengasse. In 1915, it was named Erzherzog Eugenstrasse. From 1918 until today, it is known as Údolní Street.
In 1365, there were 2 brick factories, 1 spa and 79 houses in Švábka suburb. The local residents were skilled at agriculture, crafts and trade. Švábka was severely damaged during the Hussite war in 15th century. There were only 30 houses left in 1442.
In 1846, Švábka suburb stretched from Slepá gate to Obilní marketplace, former military exercise area. There were 33 houses and 1000 inhabitants.
In 1850, Švábka was joined to Brno.
The street has existed since 1340. It was named after the former colonists from southern Germany – Swabia (Švábsko) who used to settle down in this area.
The name of the street was changed many times during centuries – in 14th century from former Schwabengasse to Švábka, in 1967 Turnergasse and Talgasse, in 1902 Jahngasse, in 1915 Eugengasse, in 1918 Talgasse (Údolní), in 1930 Údolní, in 1952 třída Obránců míru. Since 1990 it has been known as Údolní Street.
