A Hedonist’s guide to…

Prague

Gran Fierro
Found in Prague’s New Town, Gran Fierro is an Argentinian steakhouse and cocktail bar decorated with light industrial flair.
Domus Henrici
Domus Henrici has clean lines and simple design, the rooms are enormous and the views over the Petrin Hill are stunning. An old school hotels in Prague.
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.
James Joyce
The oldest of the Irish pubs in Prague, James Joyce (also known as Molly Malone's) is as close as you can get to the Green Isle itself, offering Guinness and pub grub for all.
Darling Cabaret
Darling Cabaret's expansive size and themed decor will make you feel like you've walked into a world of erotic entertainment to suit most tastes...
Neruda
One of our favourite hotels in Prague the Designhotel Neruda has some beautifully designed rooms and suites just beneath the Castle
Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel
One of the highlights of the Radisson Blu Alcron is the food, at the eponymous Alcron restaurant, the Art Deco-inspired building is home to a great hotel
Karlovy Lazne
The self-proclaimed 'largest club in Middle Europe' provides five floors of like-minded early 20 somethings. Occasional name DJs make appearances - otherwise it's a good, old-fashioned night on the tiles.
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.
Bombay Cocktail Bar
Bombay is one of the slightly more low-rent establishments on the edge of Josefov. Surrounded by the relative sophistication of Ocean Drive, Bombay has survived by appealing to drinkers looking for an altogether cheesier experience.
Dobra Cajovna
The Czech's have really discovered the tea room and the zen-like relaxation qualities that can be associated with it. Dobra is all about the tea, how it should be prepared and how it should be served. This is the art of tea.
Shooting & Hunting
Something different for a weekend away: try a day stalking deer and wild boar, or have them driven at you. There is always some element of risk involved, so it's not really recommended for those who have never handled a rifle or shotgun.
Jalta
Looking out over the busy square of the New Town, the Jalta is a great example of modern design meets Art Deco building, in the heart of Prague
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
Universal
Enjoy good French food in albeit slightly surreal surroundings. Out of the way but worth the visit.
Savic Hotel
Set in a Medieval building, hidden away from the bustle of the Old Town, the Savic Hotel is dreamy, Gothic place to stay.
Reduta
Reduta is the establishment jazz club of Prague, seasoned aficionados sit in silence as top international jazz musicians drop in on their European tour. The music is great, but being a check box on every tourist's trip to Prague can be slightly tryin
U Maleho Glena
U Maleho Glena has become an institution, known for its booking of promising young Central European talent. The tiny basement club is so intimate and small that the music positively flows through anyone who can fit into the small room by the stage.
Grand Cafe Orient
Light and airy this cafe and its balcony can provide you with a much needed rest after a shopping spree. Don't miss out on the large selection of delicious Czech pancakes that the menu has to offer.

AghaRTA Jazz Centrum
Your best bet for swinging jazz, steaming coffee and cool cocktails.
Maitrea
If you are on the path of personal development, and in search of some positive energy, Maitrea, one of the new vegetarian restaurants in Prague, is the place for you.
987 Prague Hotel
987 Prague is an elegant amalgam of old and new, from Phillippe Starck furniture to interactive light displays in the rooms.
Andels
Decidedly futuristic the Andels Prague was the starting point in the regeneration of Smichov, an area just shy of walking distance fro the centre.
Mecca
Mecca is where the cool Czechs go to play. A good 20 minutes in a taxi from the Old Town Square, Mecca is the hipper, more full-on version of Radost. A reasonably eclectic music policy draws in Prague's brighter young things.
Smetana Hall
An ideal night out for classical music and opera fans or anybody else looking for a relaxed and classy evening out. Book tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
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.
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
Maximilian
A relatively recent renovation has left the Maximilian Prague blending Art Deco, Modernism and contemporary design to make an interesting business hotel
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.
SaSaZu
Newcomer to the scene, SaSaZu has quickly made a place for itself among the best restaurants in Prague. 
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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. 
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
