Going out in Prague wouldn’t be the same without this venerable institution, the Roxy has been bringing bands and DJs of international acclaim to the city for many years.
A short stroll from Old Town Square, the venue boasts a prime location, and although its huge concrete bunker interior isn’t radical or cutting edge, the crowds love it for what it is and what it represents: a no-frills venue with an emphasis on very good music.
Expect basic benches and school assembly chairs rather than zebra-skin sofas, and plastic beakers as opposed to Martini glasses; also expect musical styles that range from house to ska to rock.
The drinks are cheap and weed-smoke fills the air. It’s sometimes frenetic, other times chilled; and you’ll do well to find out what’s on beforehand unless you’re up for a bit of a surprise.
