Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Prague

Alchymist Nosticova Prague
The film star's favourite, Alchymist Nosticova Prague is a quietly secluded and romantically indulgent hotel with a reputation for style and service.
Aria Hotel Prague
An elegant hotel in the Mala Strana, the Aria Hotel Prague – with its Rooftop Terrace, elegant decor, and fine dining restaurant – hits all the right notes.
Au Gourmand
One of Prague's best cafes, Au Gourmand is a wonderfully charming patisserie / deli with a selection of mouth-wateringly appealing quiches, tarts and deliciously rich cakes. The deep leather banquettes in the back room allow hours of unnecessary gorg
BackYard
A design studio space and shopping showroom, BackYard is a unique place to shop for one-of-a-kind items while you’re in Prague’s Nové Město.
Bakeshop
If your Czech experience has left you craving the comforts of the West, this New York-style bakery and deli is the place for you - none of the other cafes in Prague can compete with the delights that Bakeshop wheels out of its kitchen.
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.
Bokovka
A beautiful little wine bar with its own on-site fromagerie, Bokovka is a must for any oenophiles in Prague looking to sample some delicious Czech and European wines.
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.
Café Montmartre
The worn sofas feel like old friends, the scratched chairs seem to have been rescued from a skip, but this is Prague's shabby-chic at its finest. The local customers kick back, order wine and read the papers- the perfect way to spend a winter's after
Café Savoy
Savoy was a rather smart restaurant which rather surprisingly was closed down and brought back to basics incorporating the original features while discarding the modern touches. Charming little spot to for lunch before a stroll around the Petrin Hill
Café Slavia
Prague's best known café is a monument to the Art Deco splendour that engulfed much of the city in the early twentieth century. Everything is beautifully preserved, and despite a few modern touches, the café keeps the feel of its original i
Café-Café
Café-Café is one of Prague's more exclusive cafes filled with business men and ladies-who-lunch, all backed up by the occasional celebrity appearance. Located between the Old Town and Wenceslas Squares, it's a great meeting point.
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.
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. 
Cukr Kava Limonada
Less than a minute's walk from the Charles Bridge, Cukr Kava Limonada is a wonderful little cafe. The food is delicious, the service is attentive, the location quiet and the atmosphere charming. What Prague proper should be about.
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
Divinis
Out of all the Italian restaurants in Prague, Divinis stands out: the excellent and authentic cuisine, the delectable wines and the classy-but-cosy atmosphere combine to create a truly authentic 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.
Dolce Vita
The older sibling of the Old Town Square's Caffe Nuovo, Dolce Vita is an elegantly smart society cafe. The chic clientele glide in and out clutching expensive shopping bags. Coffee, cake and an ice cream for the children is the order of the day.
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.
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.
Elite Hotel Prague
Virtually the only hotel in the SoNa neighbourhood, the Elite Hotel Prague is a modern take on the city's traditional design and architecture.
Eska Restaurant
A bakery and restaurant in Prague’s Karlin neighbourhood, Eska Restaurant serves up delicious dishes in its all-white, quasi-industrial space.
Grand Cru Restaurant & Bar
Offering international cuisine with Czech influences, Grand Cru Restaurant & Bar is an elegant place to dine and imbibe, with a long wine list.
Grosseto Marina
Grosseto Marina, the newest branch of the chain of restaurants in Prague, offers a reliable and affordable Italian meal.
Hergetova Cihelna
Just one of the highlights is the superb terrace overlooking the Charles Bridge. Another is the excellent and eclectic menu. The atmosphere always seems to be buzzing and the service is always friendly. We absolutely love it!
Hotel U Raka
The elegantly simple Hotel U Raka is a revelation, the country farmhouse-style building has a warm glow that makes you want to stay longer.
Hotel U Zlaté Studne
Hotel U Zlaté Studne is a charmingly romantic hotel set up on the hill with a fabulous panorama stretching out over the city of Prague.
Innuendo
One of the only non-smoking bars in Prague, with a menu of 'Prohibition cocktails' and a regular lineup of live music.
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
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.
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
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.
Kogo
Kogo has managed to maintain its extraordinary popularity over the last few years with delicious Italian food at affordable prices...
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.
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.
La Finestra
Italian chef, Riccardo Lucque opened this - his second restaurant  - in 2009 and diners have been lapping up their Italian meat specialties ever since...
Le Clan
This sizable club has everything you need to keep you partying in to the early hours. For those who don't feel like dancing, the comfy sofas will provide you with ample space to spread out and enjoy a drink.
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
Lemon Café
After a trip around the extraordinary castle (don't miss the preserved DoDo in the Library) head for Lemon and tuck into their spread of delicious homemade cakes.
