Clubs in Prague have spread all around, but each area has its own certain style. Most clubs & discos in Prague will play Euro-pop, MTV hits, hip pop, techno, house and rave for young people. If you are looking for another sort of music, it may take longer to find the right place. Clubs usually open at 9 pm or 10 pm and close early morning, around 5 am. Entry for clubs is usually 100 – 200 CZK but expect to pay more for special events and live music. To find out the latest information about clubs and live venues, check Prague Post newspaper, biweekly magazine Downtown or Houser – weekly magazine. Tickets for live performances and venues can be bought from TicketPro. Don’t be surprised if many clubs in the city centre open and within a couple of months close down again. This is due to strict noise regulations.
Duplex is one of Prague’s most popular nightclubs, with huge dance halls filled with local teenagers and even stag-party stragglers. It is a combination of nightclub, café and restaurant. During the day, a 6th-floor terrace restaurant is a great place for coffee to enjoy the views. At night offers a view overlooking the lights of Wenceslas Square. www.duplex.cz
