Prague's nightlife offers cafés, pubs and bars, live music venues and clubs - something for everyone. Be sure to have a few pints of Czech pilsner for those at home!
Prague's most popular nightclubs are situated right in the heart of Old Town, including Karlovy Lazne, which is the largest club in Central Europe. Vertigo, Roxy, N11 and Dublex are also well recommended. More upscale clubs include Bugsy's and Tretter's, and Cross Club in Holesovice is also entertaining. It is customary to share tables with strangers if things get crowded, so don't be shy.
For those bent on partying, Prague has several organised pubcrawls that start each night around 9pm, meeting at the clock tower, the Pub Crawl Bar, or Prague Underground Backpackers. M1 Secret Lounge, Think Pink, U Sudu, Atmosphere and Solid Uncertainty are some of the trendiest bars to visit, and Rocky O'Reilly's is the largest Irish pub in Prague. Alternatiff and Bordo are both laid-back places to have a drink and listen to some alternative music, while Club Nebe occasionally hosts live shows. Concerts by local and international artists can be enjoyed at Rock Café, Lucerna Music Bar and Palace Akropolis.
For a more relaxed evening, shows at the National Marionette Theatre are renowned for their performances of Mozart operas. Classical music lovers will enjoy hearing music from local icon Anton Dvorak at venues like Smetana Hall.
