Prague’s nightlife has a reputation that now spreads far beyond the continent. Visitors flock here in search of those mythical bars where beer is cheaper than water, where the Czech desire for pivo knows no end. Sure, you can find those things, but a night out in Prague is about so much more than the stereotype. This is a Central European capital, after all, a city that has long been the centre of the world around it, a city with all the bars, pubs and clubs to prove it. A night out in Prague is one of Europe's great bucket list experiences.
The best places to go out in Prague are almost always outside the centre. Of course, it would be churlish to ignore the tourist-friendly bars of the centre, so this guide to the best nightlife in Prague doffs its cap both at the Old Town and the magic of Smichov, Holešovice and the rest. Vitejte v prazi, indeed.
