U Maleho Glena is popular, friendly bar and jazz club in the
Lesser Town (Malá Strana)
area of Prague, located 5 minutes walk from Charles Bridge
There is a regular bar upstairs, furnished in a mix of Czech and American styles with plenty of dark chunky wood, and illuminated by spotlights (the owner of U Maleho Glena is American).
They serve a range of cold beers, wines and spirits, including a good draught Guinness, which is not that easy to find in Prague. The relaxed atmosphere, cosy size and friendly staff make this a good bar for all ages groups.
Downstairs at U Maleho Glena is one of the smallest jazz clubs in the city, where live jazz and blues is played every night from 9:30pm.
Jam sessions take place every Sunday, plus there is the unmissable ‘Stan the Man and his Bohemian Blues Band’ every Monday. Stan’s performance is the longest-running Blues gig in Prague.
The rest of the week the jazz musicians range from a versatile Czech guitarist to an English singer and guitarist, to the best of whatever local artists in Prague can offer, from modern jazz to bebop.
The jazz room is simply decorated and has a real 'underground Prague' feel. And remember it is not large, so arrive early, otherwise you may find yourself watching the entire jazz performance through a narrow archway where the downstairs bar is located.
