Aureole
Neruda
One of our favourite hotels in Prague the Designhotel Neruda has some beautifully designed rooms and suites just beneath the Castle
Ultramarin
Though more an afternoon than an evening option food-wise, Ultramarin still boasts a good wide selection of dishes and is worth revisiting as a bar and nightclub come the night time.
Radost FX Cafe
Radost's front of house vegetarian café is worth a trip in its own right, or just pop in halfway through a night in the club downstairs to recharge with some pulses and a beer. The largely a predominantly Czech clientele.
K.U. Cafe
Run by the same people as Cafe-Cafe opposite, KU is one of the busiest and hippest bars in Prague. Czech celebs pout and toss their hair at each other (both male and female) as eager passers-by press their less fortunate noses to the large glass wind

Na Prikope
High-Street is how we would describe the shopping here
Franz Kafka Museum
For literary ignoramuses and fans alike, the museum dedicated to the Czech Republic's most famous writer is well worth a visit. The curators have tried to bring the surrealism of Kafka's novels to life. We think he would thoroughly approve.
Zvonarka
The summer terrace makes this place worth a visit, the views over the Nusle Valley below, and the sprawl of the city's suburbs, are panoramic, if not exactly breathtaking. Worth a look in if you're staying nearby, but probably not worth a special tri
