Harleys is a ruff & ready biker themed bar for those who want some real rock music! As most nightclubs in Prague play commercial, EDM and trance this place is a refreshingly different. The bartenders are entertaining & spit fire, use flamethrowers & perform all other sorts of antics!

Map of the 15 Best Nightclubs in Prague
I have created this very helpful Map below which outlines the 15 Best nightclubs in Prague.
15 Essential Prague Nightlife Tips
1. Head to the Nightclubs around midnight or later! As in many other parts of Europe such as Spain Czech Nightclubs don’t get busy till after midnight.
(With me being from the U.K, this was a sharp contrast as in the U.K its best to get out early, 9pm-10pm to avoid ques, most places even stop letting extra people in after 2AM.
2. Pre Drinking options include some fun Karaoke at London Underground Bar, or a few drinks in one of the cool bars such as the Dubliner Irish Bar, Absinthe Bar or even Ungelt Jazz & Blues Club, near old town square. They have food upstairs and live Jazz downstairs.
(Don’t Head to the Jazz Dock Riverside Jazz Bar before 10pm! As there is no Jazz until then!! Madness I know.)
3. Split up your group into smaller 2/3’s before approaching a club as some nicer places do not like large groups of guys, although most are ok.
4. Dress code at most Czech nightclubs in the centre is relaxed. Which is refreshing being from England, where the bouncer will not let you in if your wearing trainers or are not smart. However, in Czech I got in places like Chapeau Rouge wearing jean shorts & black trainers without any issue.
5. Don’t use the ATM/Cash Points in Prague: They are setup or to try and get you to withdraw large amounts & also give you a really bad rate.
6. Best to bring Czech money (Czech Koruna) with you and perhaps some of your local currency, which you can exchange at a bureau if you run out. If you really need a cash point, use a bank and try to go the least amount of times.
7. Be Careful Using your bank card for payments - You can pay on card for drinks at alot of venues, but be careful with this as a friend of mine was overcharged massively when he was drunk! Cash is king!
8. Best Conversion rate: If you do pay on card for a meal, “select charge in local currency” not using there conversion rate. That way your bank will do the exchange for you at a better rate.
Local currency, Czech Koruna:
Approximate rates: (Aug 2019):
1 USD = 23.21 CZK
1 Euro = 25.80 CZK
1 GBP = 28.40 GBP
9. Don’t Burn out during the day. It all kicks of in Prague past midnight, so try not to drink to heavy during the day if you really want to hit it hard during the night.
10. Watch out for trams, after a heavy days drinking it can be easy for your balance & awareness to go, so be ware of the fast moving trams some of which won’t slow down! A friend of mine, wasn’t even drunk but was just walking along the edge of a tram line and nearly got taken out!

11. While in Prague you will be doing alot of walking! So make sure you wear comfy shoes/Trainers.
Taxis are extortionate, and the series of cobbled alleyways make it difficult for pick ups in the centre. But if you really need one, use Uber as they have a fixed price. If your feeling adventurous you could use the city bus/trams, use google maps to tell you which to take.

12. When you lose your friends, which you will if in a large group! Find a good pub/bar then share your location with them on whatsapp so they can follow the route directly to you. For apple phone, go onto the WhatsApp messages, then click the plus button & share your location.
13. Be Respectful in the club & Meet new people. Prague is a friendly city on nights out, I only saw one fight in 12 nights out in Czech! Which compared to the U.K is amazing. So feel free to chat to new people & make some interesting friends.
14. Learn Czech Phrases. Although the majority of people in the centre of Prague speak English. A couple of useful phrases can go along way. Ahoy (Hello), Thank you (Děkuji) (Pronounced Je Qui), good day (dobrý den).
15. Drink lots of water. Alcohol is a Diuretic means it can dehydrate you! So drink plenty of water before bed, to avoid that pesky hangover. This will allow you to not waste your day & party again the next night with no issue! ;)
