Prague’s Old Town is the centre of the city – in more ways than one. The buildings are big, the clubs even bigger and the drinks are cheap. The staggering amount of bars in one of Europe’s busiest drinking districts are enough to fill up 30 weekends… it takes one just to explore Karlovy Lazne. This is the largest club in Europe, a five-storey mega venue in a 15th century building. The main floor is in a disused swimming pool and has an Oxygen bar, but you’ve also got a 50s and 70s Oldies room, Hip Hop level and Chill Out room on the top floor. Or, cool down (literally) in the Ice Pub; where the walls, bar, tables, sculptures and even glasses are made of ice.
Speaking of megaclubs, Zlaty Strom is a legend on the mean streets of Prague’s Old Town. This Gothic underground music venue is a maze of club rooms, lounges and even a pole dancing bar – closing just in time for bed at 6am. Hangar Bar is another all-nighter, based on the original Pan Am airlines. Hostesses in Pan Am uniforms serve drinks and greet guests, bartenders are dressed as 40s and 50s pilots and there’s a body of an aircraft on the main dance floor… Two doors down from Hangar is Prague’s resident Tiki stag do paradise, Aloha. On a side street of the Old Town, Aloha is a hidden gem – with regular dancers in bikinis, live DJs, fire breathers and drinks in totem-pole style vessels. It’s boozy, decadent and unforgettable.
We’re not finished with this area yet… KU Bar is one of Prague’s smartest options. It’s home to some of the city’s most popular club nights, world-famous shooters, first-class DJs, house, commercial, punk, rock, R&B – and it’s got the capital’s trendiest crowd. M1 Lounge is also dedicated to music, with an impressive team of DJs attracting the likes of Kanye West, Matt Damon, Elijah Wood and even Coolio… to its industrial den. Roxy Club is another warehouse venue, and more hardcore than all of Prague’s clubs put together. However,One Club gives it a major run for its money – boasting DJs such as Afrojack in its underground nightclub. After all of that, pour your own pints at The Pub – with huge tables featuring beer taps in the centre. We told you Prague is wild…
Wenceslas Square, one of the two landmark squares in the city, is the ever so slightly younger and crazier brother of Old Town. It might be labelled new, but the area was originally laid out in 1348. This is a tight-knit drinking district of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. You’ll also find the capital’s biggest concentration of strip clubs in Wenceslas Square – we imagine this is where you’ll spend most of your stag weekend hours (and koruna).
Duplex is exactly what you’d expect… a duplex. There’s a restaurant on one floor and one of Prague’s most exclusive clubs on another. The glass cube building, awarded membership to The World’s Finest Clubs website, is famous in the city, popular with international celebrities. Soak up the views of the city (and the dancers) and rub shoulders with the international elite. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ve got Lucerna Music Bar. This cavernous music venue is set underground, hosting popular gig nights during the week, transforming into Prague’s best 80s and 90s nightclub on the weekend. Nebe Wenceslas Square, spread over two gigantic floors, is a large space where you’ll bump into fellow stag and hen groups. It’s open until 5am, also has 80s/90s/00s cranked up and people dancing on the tables. New Town is renowned for beer and breweries, particularly U Fleku. This is the Cezch capital’s most famous brewery, brewing for over 500 years, and boasts a beer garden with a capacity of 1200. If you just relax, or get a hair of the dog from one of the many shots going round, this is a pilgrimage for beer lovers in the group.
Now, onto the stag do essentials. As mentioned earlier, New Town is brimming with strip clubs. It’s, unofficially, Prague’s ‘Red Light District’ – boasting a bevy of beautiful Czech girls. Goldfingers is one of the most recognised spots in Wenceslas Square, set in a former theatre. It’s a lot more luxurious than you’d imagine and, as well as stripteases and lap dancing, expect classic cabaret, Can Can and Moulin Rouge-style acts, jelly wrestling, body eating and special stag stitch ups.
Hot Peppers is another club you’ll become familiar with on your stag weekend… It’s emphasis is on champagne and girls, and you can taste the high life at the VIP Champagne Lounge – with Grande Marques, Cristal, Veuve Clicquot, Moët et Chandon, Dom Pérignon and Krug available. The shows are themed, but you’ll get the classics; lesbian acts, exotic dancers, Can Can – you know the drill.
