Cross Club prague

1. Cross Club

🍴 What other customers say 🍴

4.5/5 – TripAdvisor
4.4/5 – Google

The Cross Club is a must for late-night parties with friends. Quite far from the old town and on the other side of the Vltava, this alternative club in the Holešovice district impresses with its architecture and its many interwoven metal objects, worthy of genuine contemporary works of art.

Comprising several floors, it serves as an atmospheric restaurant and bar on the 1st floor, a large terrace/garden on the ground floor, and a nightclub in the basement. There are plenty of psy-trance concerts throughout the week, in a pleasant and incredible atmosphere.

The clientele is mainly young, with a mix of locals and tourists, giving you plenty of opportunity to meet people. We recommend going around midnight when the atmosphere is at its height.

Where is the Cross Club located?

Adress : Plynární 1096, 170 00 Praha 7-Holešovice
Opening hours : Mon – Sun : 12am – 4/6am

anonymous bar

2. Anonymous Bar

🍴 What other customers say 🍴

4.5/5 – TripAdvisor
4.4/5 – Google

L’Anonymous Bar is a cocktail bar known for its mysterious, hushed atmosphere, with a chic, hipster decor that’s very well thought out.

Prices are a little more expensive than other alternative bars, due to the originality of the different drinks (for example, the ‘infusion’, which is not to be missed).

Remember not to arrive too late to avoid the sometimes long queues (which says a lot about the popularity of this unusual bar) or even make a reservation to make sure you get a table and get the most out of the experience.

The address is 12, Michalská 432, Staré Město, 110 00. A brasserie that richly deserves its place in our ranking of the best bars in Prague.

vzorkovna

4/5 – TripAdvisor
4.4/5 – Google

Situated between the National Theatre and Le Louvre café in a busy street, Vzorkovna may not look like much at first glance, but it hides a small concert hall with raised areas to admire the artists on stage, a table football room and a beer bar.

The whole place is in the basement, creating an original and very special atmosphere. You’ll even have the right to leave a comment with your signature (in the table football room) on one of their walls, which acts as a guest book.

Note, however, that the establishment only accepts cash, so be sure to withdraw some before entering. The bar is mainly full of young people, so you’re sure to meet some nice, friendly people. To try it out, go to Národní 339/11, 110 00.

bukanyr

4. U Bukanýra

🍴 What other customers say 🍴

5/5 – TripAdvisor
4.3/5 – Google

The Bukanyr Boat is, as its name suggests, a boat in which an atmospheric bar has been created. Located not far from the old town, the Bukanyr is the perfect place to enjoy a cheap beer with friends on the water’s edge in the late evening.

The style of music is closer to techno-house, in a pleasant atmosphere where you can mix with all nationalities. Like the Cross-club, this is a place to be at the end of the evening.

Be aware that the boat is static and can only hold a limited number of people, so it’s best to avoid the middle of the evening if you don’t want to feel cramped. For an original end to the evening, head to Nábřeží Ludvíka Svobody 1, 110 00. In short, one of the best bars in Prague.

Where is the Bukanyr located?

Adress : nábř. L. Svobody 1, 110 00 Nové Město
Opening hours : Tue – Wed : 2pm – 12pm / Thu : 2pm – 4am / Fri – Sat : 2pm – 8am

4/5 – TripAdvisor
4.4/5 – Google

Palác Akropolis is one of the best-known alternative bars in its neighbourhood. Located in the famous Žižkov district, Palác Akropolis bears a striking resemblance to the Cross club, both in terms of its spacious premises and its originality.

You’ll be spoilt for choice for a good night out with friends, with a bar on the ground floor, a techno-house club and a second bar in the basement, as well as a concert hall open for certain events.

Admission costs 60 czk, around €2.50, which is relatively affordable, as are the drinks on offer (we recommend the famous Kozel draught).

The clientele is mostly local, but you can easily come across groups of tourists who have been told that this is the place to be. We’ll give you the address if you want to enjoy the experience with friends: Kubelíkova 1548, 130 00.

6. Storm Club

🍴 What other customers say 🍴

4/5 – TripAdvisor
3.8/5 – Google

The Storm club is another alternative club/pub in Žižkov, located on the edge of the famous Vitkov park. It has a terrace bar with a garden-barbecue atmosphere, where psytrance is played until 9pm. Then the evening continues in the basement, where the club is located, with its large open spaces.

Admission is a little more expensive than at Palác Akropolis, but still very affordable in terms of content, at 120 crowns (around €4.50). More than enough to satisfy big partiers looking for an unusual evening out!

For a relaxed evening full of good memories, the address is Tachovské nám. 290/5, 130 00. We couldn’t possibly list the best unusual bars in Prague without mentioning this establishment!
