If you are looking for a quick drink this is just the place, just try to get in before 1 a.m. because that’s when it gets really crowded.

3. James Dean


If you are missing some US flavor, you can stop by James Dean, this bar or “diner” is also located in the Old Town Square.

Inspired by 1952 Chevrolet Bel Air’s chairs you will feel that you are in “Back to the future” movie.


A 60 piece-ceramic column will greet you as you enter to the bar with Marilyn Monroe and James Dean as the main stars.

Everything inside this place will transport you to the 50’s, from the Coca-Cola cash register to an original jukebox. And of course, all the pop art of the famous Andy Warhol.


If you feel that the party can’t be allowed to stop, just walk down the basement. Here, you will feel that you are entering in a US petrol station.


Down in the basement, the music plays more along a club style.


4. M1 Club Prague


This is another bar that opens up every day of the week. Here, you will find a luxurious and upscale environment with different DJ’s every week. Their cocktail bar is pretty large, accompanied by an enormous dance floor where you will have no option except dance!
