On cold winter nights, Lavka Bar & Club is a good spot for a drink and a dance. But on a hot summer's evening, Lavka makes for one of the best nights out in Prague.
Lavka is set on the bank of the River Vltava on the Old Town side, next to Charles Bridge in the centre of the city. With terraces both at the back and at the front, there are stunning views to be enjoyed, across the water and up to Prague Castle.
This supreme location attracts a tourist-heavy crowd, although Czechs also view this as good club to party the night away in.
The music tends to get more up to date - and more hard-core - as the night progresses. There is good party music early on, pushing on to today's best dance tunes once the dance floor is ready for it.
A popular feature of Lavka at night is the dancing girls. As each girl takes their turn on the podium, the crowd of admirers grows. This part of Lavka naturally proves popular with visiting Prague stag parties!
But Lavka is not all about clubbing. Daytime and early evening during the summer, Lavka's great riverside terrace at the rear is a lovely place for a cool drink by the river, to admire the views across the water.
So either come early on for a drink in the sunshine before moving on, or if you are on a pub crawl and/or looking for somewhere to dance later on, Lavka is open until 04am.
