A party in the city city under the open sky
If you are still in Prague when the weather is fine, U Bukanýra
(the buccaneer) is a must. It's quite a charming spot, albeit touristy, nevertheless lively and fun. Expect DJ empowered parties, and the occasional film screenings.
On to bar hopping
On to Hoffa
, the party bar, which takes pride in its live DJs and live music program. This is also great for drinks and food, and for a great time with tourists and locals alike.
But the Groove Bar
is different: their wide selection of cocktails is only matched by the diversity of the DJ powered parties (a different DJ party every day). They also have different planned parties and concerts.
The Čili bar
not far from the bustling Old Town Square has a thing for spicy, fiery chilies, which find their way in shots of all kinds! Other than that, quite a fun space, with music and parties that will make you come back for more. Over and over.
Classics and cult music
The Státní opera Praha
is the destination for cultural music lovers. The opera has a rich repertoire of opera and ballet from Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Puccini, Rossini, Donizetti, Prokofiev and other famous composers.
If this is what you want, do not miss the Czech Philharmonic at Rudolfinum
for chamber concerts, and other uplifting philharmonic performances.
The Prague Symphony Orchestra at Smetana Hall
with its award winning performances falls into the same category.
Those smooth jazz tunes
Those smooth jazz tunes are done at JazzDock
. Go in for live funky tunes, or for quality blues, soul and indie music.
Finally, the AghaRTA Jazz Centrum
promises a rewarding experience. From acoustic trios to quartets, Dixieland music, to funk and fusion, there's a different live performance every night here.
