Klub Lavka, Prague
For soem resaon we ended up at this club both evenings we were in Prague.....we did go to others over the course of the night but certainly enjoyed Lavka.
Situated on the River, this 3 or 4 story building houses an interesting bar. Each level themed with different music, vibe and bars....chill out areas, full on techno dance, rock and 80's comlete some of the party areas. Stays open into the morning (6am) and the best time bight be to go after midnight.
Beers $1, mixed drinks $3-$4. Cover charge $5, Coat check available $1.
Caution: Weird thing. The one evening we went around 9pm or so, and there were groups of really young guys and girls (maybe 16/17).....they avoided the 80's area and were gone from the club by midnight....at which time the crowd get significantly older. Is there a drinking age in Prague???hahaha.
Dress Code: We messed this one up. Here is the quick synopsis.
Friday night: casual...jeans, tshirt, whatever.
Saturday Night: Jeans still, but need a collard button down of some type...a bit more upscale
Close to the Charles Bridge and at the river bank of the Vtlava, you'll find the popular spot Klub Lavka. Here you can have dinner in the restaurant or have a drink in the bar at night. The club looks modern and is not cheap, but it's a nice place to enjoy the wonderful view at the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge at night and to have fun.
If you are in the club, ask one of the waiters to show you the waterlevel of the flood in 1999. Inside they have a line marking the incredible high waterlevel of this disaster. They also show pictures of what the building looked like during the flood. Very impressive to see!
Klub Lavka is a popular club near Karlovy Lazne and the Charles Bridge. It has 2 different levels for the club and an outdoor terrace facing the bridge. The upstairs is more of a place to sit and relax and the downstairs is for dancing. There is a cover charge and no real dress code. The crowd was mixed with people from teenagers to 40's.
Maybe I went on a bad night, but it seemed like guys outnumbered the girls 4:1.
If you want to dance to cheesey music with lots of other tourists then this is the best place to come. Or you can sit quietly in the corner getting drunk and watch the pretty girls do their thing on the podiums. Either way I have been here 3 times in all and it was a good laugh everytime. A lot better than the biggest club in Europe next door.
Dress Code: Very relaxed dress code, I got in wearing trainers.
Lavka is loved by tourists and Praguers when drunk ;) It has nice music, but you pay a 100kc to get in and drinks are expensive. The two terraces right by the river are worth the expensive drinks though! Right next to the Charles bridge.. the view is amazing! It looks nice from inside and has a big dancefloor. Open till 6am (at least has been sometimes) so u can stay till sunrise and that is one thing u have to see from Lavka. Be prepared to meet people from all over!
Dress Code: Anything
Fantastic atmosphere and wonderful authentically played dixieland jazz. The place is in an underground cellar and has a very cool dark smoky atmosphere. When I was there it seemed to be frequented by easygoing oldtimers, mostly locals, not tourists.
If you like cheesy 70's music like "YMCA" and "We Are Family" this is the place for you! Klub Lavka has a small dancefloor, several bars, and go-go dancers. The crowd consisted of mostly tourists (many Americans). It's would be a fun place to go with a group of friends if disco music is your thing.
Dress Code: Nothing fancy.
Lavka is situated next to Karlovy Lazne and close to the Charles Bridge. By day you can enjoy a relaxing meal by the banks of the Vlatva, by night the club comes alive and you can enjoy the downstairs disco, highly populated with tourists. It can get a bit confusing with the two sets of stairs especially when you've enjoyed a few too many.
Club Lavka has got it all : cocktails, 80s music, internet access, strippers, 'exotic dancers', a terrace overlooking the river and Charles Bridge and flashy lights.
What more do you want....Staff understand English, which is great. You also get frisked with this big huge metal/drug detector thingy at the door. Entry is a measly 100 Cz Kroner
I urge you : GO TO CLUB LAVKA !!!!
Dress Code: Come as you are.
After spending a couple of evenings in the basement bars, Lavka was a breath of fresh air (literally). One can enjoy completely different aspects of the dark hours - mindlessly dancing (or watching as I did) then taking a step outside for a quiet drink under Charles Bridge overlooking the Vltava. Sunrise here cannot be missed....easy to experience since the club is open until 6:00 a.m.
Lavka has a good mix of both foreign and Czech clubbing people and a good age mix. It's especially during the summer, since they then have the outdoor terrace open, with tables, an outside bar and a stunning view of the river and the Charles Bridge. On the downside, Lavka has stiff prices on drinks (for being Prague), especially if you insist on drinking imported stuff.
Dress Code: Anything, as long as you don't come naked.
It's definitely the biggest club in Prague and also in central Europe. Here you can meet many people from different countries and local Czech teens during the weekends. It's a huge place and there's much to do besides dancing. There's restaurants, cafés, fitness centre, internetcafé, theatre and more. Don't be scared off by the security checks!
Dress Code: Anything you'd normally wear for clubbing. Not a formal place.
Selection of bars, offering different themes and Discoteque. Friendly atmosphere and very easy to meet people. I went to Prague alone and made quite a few friends here. Attended by Czech people and tourists.
Dress Code: Smart casual
One good site is the Klub Lavka (www.lavka.cz), is a disco situated near the Charles bridge. Music of all the times. It costs 50 Kc.
Another good place is Jama pub (www.praguepivo.com), with good rock music.
Lavka (next to Charles Bridge) and the best location picture I've seen for a while.
This is your ultimate 'united nations' disco. Open 7 days a week but, I would recommend only Thurs,Fri and Sat. Tables and chairs upstairs. Dancefloor downstairs. Big garden in the summer. Top 40 music and personal preference. Not many locals. Coffee bar opens at 6am. You'll get a very different view of Charles Bridge (deserted and ghostly in the mist from the Vltava). Very pleasant outdoor area at the back alongside the river.
Dress Code: Anything generally but, no sneakers on Saturday.
