Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Prague

987 Prague Hotel
987 Prague is an elegant amalgam of old and new, from Phillippe Starck furniture to interactive light displays in the rooms.
Alchymist Grand
Located within Mala Strana's charming cobbled streets the Alchymist Grand is opulent to the core decent-sized and well-appointed rooms
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.
Atlas
Let's not beat around the bush (so to speak), nightclub in Czech means brothel. These mass-market stag-party enticing establishments are all about a quick turnover, good service and attractive girls.
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.
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
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.
Cafe Indigo
Around the corner from one of the schools at the Charles University, Indigo is a favourite of slightly avant-garde students and their professors. With a 'too-cool-for-school' attitude, thankfully it is spurned by the fannypack, camera clutching briga
Charles Bridge
Bridging the fast-flowing waters of the Vltava, the 14th Century construct has been the scene of many of the most famous films shot in Prague. Best visited at night or very early in the morning when the tourists and tat-peddlars haven't descended.
Cihelna Concept Store
Cihelna Concept Store is dedicated to showcasing the best Czech design talent in its exhibition space found with a historic brick building in the Lesser Town.
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. 
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...
DOX Centre for Contemp. Art
One of the newer galleries in Prague, the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art has proved popular.
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.
Field
The Michelin-starred Field restaurant in Prague showcases chef Radek Kašpárek’s modern, seasonal, straightforward cuisine.
Flying
One way to really understand the lay of the land is from the air, either take an hour to glide gracefully in a hot-air balloon over the still countryside or take a whistle-stop tour in a twin-prop plane. Relatively cheap for the experience.
Football
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.
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
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.
Grosseto Marina
Grosseto Marina, the newest branch of the chain of restaurants in Prague, offers a reliable and affordable Italian meal.
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.
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.
Ice Skating

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

Kampa Museum
Set on the river bank with exquisite views is a stunningly designed space housing a thorough collection of much of the region's best modern art. The wonderful ground-floor cafe is an excellent reason to visit, even if the art of Kupka and Gutfreund i
Kantýna
A butcher’s and restaurant in Prague’s Nové Město, Kantýna both serves and sells great cuts of meat for casual carnivorous consumption.
Kavarna Obecni Dum
The Kavarna is housed in the Municipal House, one of Prague's finest Art Nouveau buildings, consequently it draws crowds of tourists rightly wowed by the architecture and design. This makes it expensive and creates a slightly sterile atmosphere.
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.
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.
Letná Beer Garden
Beautiful beer garden with one of the best views in Prague.
Lucerna Passage
If it wasn't for the wonderful statue of St Wenceslas sitting astride an upside down horse, hanging from the ceiling, not many people would visit the Lucerna Passage. However, a lack of decent shops, lighting or even bargains is a bit down-heartening
Luka Lu
Whimsical Balkan-themed restaurant in Mala Strana.
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.
Manes Gallery
