Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Prague

SaSaZu
Newcomer to the scene, SaSaZu has quickly made a place for itself among the best restaurants in Prague. 
Hotel Josef
One of the best design hotels in Old Town Prague, Hotel Josef was one of the first ground-breaking design properties in the city.
Blue Light
Although not the height of sophistication, the graffiti covered walls, comfy sofas and cavernous ceilings give Blue light bar an atmosphere all of its own.
Kozicka
Kosicka has been around for years, and has maintained a loyal and local clientele who know and love the place. Great place to have a drink or two and introduce yourself to a local, perfect for those wanting to perfect their pidgin-Czech.
Le Patio
Le Patio's lifestyle shops are full of interesting little pieces for the garden, the dining room, and the home. Everything is for sale and one is not too disturbed by browsers. A lovely place to rest one's overly walked feet and enjoy a strong coffee
Alchymist Grand
Located within Mala Strana's charming cobbled streets the Alchymist Grand is opulent to the core decent-sized and well-appointed rooms
Prague Airport Transfers
Koruna Palace
What could be reminiscent of the Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, is instead a low-rent jumble of shops with impressive sounding Italian names selling second-rate products.
Go-Karts
Go-karting is incredibly fun and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon if you've expended all other options or have been worn out by more cultural pursuits. If going with the family be aware that the other drivers may be boisterous young men on stag
Praha Karlstejn Golf Klub
Maximilian
A relatively recent renovation has left the Maximilian Prague blending Art Deco, Modernism and contemporary design to make an interesting business hotel
Na Prikope
High-Street is how we would describe the shopping here
Domus Balthasar Prague
Domus Balthasar Prague has a simple, modern design ethic, reasonable-sized rooms and clean lines, which is enough to make it a good base for a stay in town.
Techtle Mechtle
A favourite among young party animals, 'Hanky Panky' provides a saucy night out for those who like to drink and dance in style.
Parachuting
There's little to beat the feeling of hurling yourself out of an airplane. As the 'chute opens and you drift gently towards the earth in the silence, it is a truly orgasmic experience. Alternatively, strap yourself to an instructor and let him do the
Iron Gate
A wonderful piece of history, Iron Gate Prague has old world charm and style in abundance with a central location near the Old Town Square
U Modré Kachničky II
The Blue Duck or U Modré Kachničky II is one of Prague's more charming Czech restaurants set in the cobbled streets of the Old Town
Royal Way
If any of Bohemia's great monarchs could see what has become of the once Royal Way today, they would surely rise from their mausoleums and restore some national pride into this mawkish tourist track.
Mirellie
The second in this chain of Mediterranean restaurants in Prague, Mirellie in Vinohrady is similar to its counterpart in Dekvice, serving up a pleasant meal for very reasonable prices.
U Patrona
U Patrona is almost the perfect restaurant in Prague for an intimate evening, especially if you can secure the balcony table on a warm summer's evening. Sophisticated and elegant with attentive service and refined cooking.
Cross Club
Cross Club claims to be the home of alternative culture in the city, and its claim is fairly well founded, for this spot is certainly the most eclectic of Prague's clubs. 
Culinaria
For a gourmet snack there is no place better. Sit back and watch the people mill around the square or take your food away with you to enjoy as you wander down the city's picturesque streets.
U Zlaté studně
U Zlaté studně has one of the most panoramic views in Prague, set high up in Mala Strana the terrace views across the city are almost with parallel.
Dahab
Dahab is fast becoming a Prague institution, the somewhere-beyond-chilled atmosphere, great food, cheap drinks and comfortable seating has made it one of Prague's most relaxed cafes. Dahab's following is more studenty than ladies who lunch in Parizsk
Klementinum
Part of the National Library, concerts are held in the Mirror Chapel on a daily basis. Built in 1720, the chapels marble, gilded stucco and wall-to-floor and ceiling mirrors make this a memorably romantic candlelit concert venue.
Kogo
Kogo has managed to maintain its extraordinary popularity over the last few years with delicious Italian food at affordable prices...
Goldfingers
Goldfingers is the Rolls Royce of Prague's adult establishments, a salubrious basement club with strict policies and tight securities employ the most attractive girls in Prague. The drinks are expensive, as are the dances - but it's worth every penny
Kolkovna
If it's a beer hall with charming decor and relaxed ambiance that you're looking for then Kolkovna is the place for you. Tucked away from the main tourist drag, there is a selection of beers and traditional dishes to suit everyone.
Globe
Globe offers a New American style menu with an Italian spirit....all very very late at night.
Sarah Bernhardt
Sarah Bernhardt is an Art-Deco beauty set in the wonderful Hotel Paris in the Old Town. The Czech and French cooking is superb and service excellent.
Mamaison Riverside Prague
The Mamaison Riverside Prague has rooms with large enveloping beds, a modern take on old-fashioned glamour and a hotel bar worth taking a digestif in.
Cowboys
Having revamped one of Prague's more famous name restaurants, Bazaar, the Kampa Group have created a super stylish steak house, complete with bar and summer terrace from which Prague's bright young things and green-eyed tourists can enjoy the view.
La Bodeguita Del Medio
One of the livelier bars in Prague is La Bodeguita Del Medio. Drink, dance and be merry -- with expertly-crafted mojito in-hand, of course.
Lucerna Music Bar
Lucerna is set in the bowels of a shopping centre, not far from Wenceslas Square. During the week live music is the draw, but at weekends the cheesy club nights bring in a young, drunk crowd. Suitably hidden to keep most stags and tour groups away.
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
Duplex
This club has two floors of high designed porn chic interiors, with amazing views over the square below. International name DJs play and Duplex is now styling itself as the in-town in-club, taking away customers from the likes of Radost and Mecca.
Hotel Paris
In the late 19th Century everything French was seen as the height of civilisation, which is why the Hotel Paris Prague is one of the city's finest.
Bellevue
Bellevue's accomplished international menu draws in a grown-up crowd who take advantage of the terrace with views across the river and Charles Bridge
Perla Hotel Prague
Decorated with enormous pearls, the Perla Hotel Prague is just a little bit kitsch and not far from the sights of the Old Town.
