MMC Universe is a music bar and nightclub in the heart of Prague. Located in a cavernous basement of the Deminka restaurant, this spot definitely has the feel of an underground club. A small dance floor, two bars, and a mezzanine keep party-goers coming back for more. And, if you're a lady, you're in luck. The new Girls Go Free policy is effective on most nights. Nothing like bright lights, great music, and a dash of sexism to make your weekend one to remember.
If jazz music is to your liking and you are looking for some fun things to do on your night out, there is nowhere better than the Jazz Time. The place is the hub of jazz music with live band strumming in regularly. On the days there is no live performance, the in-house DJ spins some peppy music. They also have a restaurant where you can enjoy a quiet meal with friends. So put on your dancing shoes and get ready to jazz it.
With slick biomechanical design and and interesting sense of decor, you will probably first come to this Central Prague bar for a show, as they host many traveling bands and djs. The second time you come to Central Station will be up to you, whether for their gallery, shows, or drinks.
One of the newest clubs in town, the Stonx night club is situated in the heart of the Wenceslas Square. With live music, and some of the best local Djs rocking the place. Stonx is a new happening party destination. It has the biggest dancefloors in Prague, which is why party revelers flock here to get a taste of Prague's fantastic nightlife. For those who like to stay away from the hustle and noise, there is a spacious seating area too. The place also has 3 bars which serve a variety of alcoholic drinks to go with the fun experience here.
A staple diet of Dixieland, swing and traditional music keeps the punters coming in (these tend to be mostly tourists, as at the other downtown jazz clubs). The club is situated in a courtyard linking Jungmannova and Vodickova streets.
The crowd is predominantly Czech and under thirty but expats and tourists are by no means unrepresented. There is a menu offering tasty meat dishes off the grill and a satisfying drinks menu. The small dance floor suffers needlessly every time the DJ spins tracks from Grease. One major drawback about this place is that the service is very unsatisfactory, so keep your expectations low.
Vagon is not chic and sleek. It is down and dirty, rock and roll style. With live shows early in the evening, and the "Rock Dance Party" happening from midnight until 5am, Vagon is a rockers haven in the center of Prague. Loads of people, loud music and cheap drinks make this rock club a frequent stop for the locals, as well as tourists, who are looking for a harder edged musical experience. Live shows feature punk, ska and rock bands. If you happen in on the proper day you might even see the likes of a Police or Led Zeppelin revival juxtaposed with longtime Czech favorite Plastic People of the Universe.
There may well come a time during your visit here when you've simply had enough of the historic castle, those beautiful Baroque churches, and of course, that old bridge. A time when all you really want to do is drink cheap beer with locals half your age as top 40 Czechoslovakian hits from the 60's are spun and sung. When that time comes simply drop that overpriced Pilsner you bought on the Square and head for this cavernous spot, no more than two minutes from the ever-popular clock. Have a great time listening to music while guzzling beer. And if you feel like it, even try any one of their set menus that promise some simple and delicious Czech fare.
One of the popular spaces for live music in the city, Klub Final ought to be your final destination on a Friday or Saturday night. Open seven days a week, and extra late on Fridays and Saturdays, this club plays host to local music talent as well as talent brought in from all over the country, and beyond. Besides presenting music talent, the club also is home to the Galerie Final, which displays art by local artists. See the website or call to know more.
Don't let the somewhat grungy appearance put you off as they pour some of the best cocktails in town and at prices so low they must be giving them away. They're so serious about cocktails here that beer drinkers are penalized as beer prices actually go up as the night progresses. The vast majority of the dozens of drinks listed fall between 40-70 Kc and for a few crowns more they'll even dust off the top shelf booze as a substitute for the cheaper but perfectly adequate domestic type. As this bar only inhabits a small amount of space means it's often difficult to find a seat. Be sure not to be too loud as you stumble out: the police headquarters is located right down the street.
Ocko Music Club has a unique concept wherein the patrons can actually see the parties happening at the club in their homes. The club offers videos of the events taking place allowing people to be part of them even if they are not physically present. Ocko also offers lounges where one can hold private events. The cocktail bar serves a mixture of many delightful drinks and there are around 4 bars to cater to your needs. The flashy interiors and neon lights make the perfect ambiance for a club and you might just bump into a local celebrity as well.
Formerly known as Hany Bany, Discoclub Pacha is a happening joint located within the Prague Congress Center. Besides the regular crowd of the city, the club also sees many government officials and dignitaries coming here to unwind at the VIP room. One can also find popular celebrities making an appearance at the club. DJs such as Gabri Ponte, Sonic and Vanilla Ice have performed here. The vibrant atmosphere and dazzling lights make the evening enjoyable.
