This is a really unique and intimate space; set inside a 14th century vault! The musicians we saw were definitely first-rate, but in my opinion, they fell more into the category of “jam-band”. Regardless of musical style, the drink prices were friendly and it was a really enjoyable time.

Went here on a whim with my husband to listen to some jazz. The venue was awesome and interesting being underground and the group were very tight. It was an awesome night out and the band played until quite late in the evening.

Good jazz club near old town. Nice venue - intimate and good acoustics. Check the calendar as the house band is good but leans toward rock more than traditional jazz.

I am not a big jazz fan but decided to go along with others in my group to this club. The music start until about 9.15 but the band were really talented and the singer a very good showman who made the whole night very enjoyable. Amazing percussionist too. Well with the 250krona. Drinks were also reasonably priced.

Was here every night during my short stay in Prague. Small room so there is no bad seats. Decent drink selections. Not much food to offer -- a few packaged snacks.

I really loved my visit to this little jazz club. It is small and intimate with great staff and an interesting mix of shows which are well priced. Drinks are reasonable here too. The show we saw was good, but not outstanding and we left at the second break (after about 2 hours of the 3 hour show).

We bought tickets in advance for a Sunday night jazz session, which reserves a table for you. Just drop by the club and pick up your tickets ahead of time since the club is small and tables limited. The club feels like being inside a cave with good acoustics and a warm atmosphere that felt very cozy. The group was... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
