be plenty of good sounds, pretty people and late night
entertainment. This isn't the Eastern bloc any more!
Generally, clubbing in Prague starts quite late (23:00)
and ends very, very late. Clubs and bars in Prague have
much more relaxed rules about closing times than you might
find in other Western countries.
So expect to party late, into the wee hours - just in
time for breakfast?
Many clubs offer free entrance if you show up a bit early
and you'll find weekday partying to be a bit cheaper.
Obviously not all Prague nightclubs are created equal. Some will be filled with fellow travelers. If you want to avoid these places, then consider smaller venues outside the "tourist zones" and Wenceslas Square.

extravagant parties." And, it might be onto

Finally, a little advice
before you head out...
-- We'll restate the obvious. Consider clubs that are
close to your hotel or wherever you're staying. A short
walk would be ideal.
-- Keep in mind, the metro runs till midnight. Between
midnight and 5 am, Prague's night trams service the city.
Their routes are a bit different from daytime trams and
can be a bit of a pain in the neck sometimes. Plus, their
intervals can be quite long (30 mins).
