Maxim, trendy bar & night club in Prague

Maxim (or should I say “M*XIM Bar”) is a club that opened about a year ago in Prague historical centre, and is located close to the old town square. Maxim has a cocktail bar on the ground floor, and a night club on their underground level. You’ll be asked to pay a fee to get in from 10 or 11pm, but only men will be asked to do so – it remains free for women.

The atmopshere is close to what you may get in any nice night club in a European capital – rather classy – and you’ll see girls (always gorgeous) dancing on each side of the bar. The music varies depending on the night – in any case, don’t expect to get cheesy music there at weekends!

Price wise, excepting the fact that you have to pay to get in (unusual in Prague), it is very reasonable. Drinks cost you about 150 CZK (approximately 6 euros), or even 100 CZK (approx. 4 euros) if you only get liquor. A bottle of champagne is about 2000 CZK (approx. 80 euros).

If you’re planning on going, don’t hesitate to book a table. It won’t cost you anything, and you’ll make sure you’re allowed to get in, even though the club is fully packed.

The bar is opened from 5pm to 2am, and the night club from 10pm to 5am (Friday and Saturday night).

Here below gives you a good idea of what it look like:


Karlovy Lazne, Prague 1, old town

Karlovy Lazne is a well known night club in Prague, namely by tourists, as this is one of the biggest music club in Central Europe. It has 5 floors and each floor has a dedicated music style.

You may have heard about it and feel like checking it out, but it’s definitely nothing special. In fact, the interior rather looks like a big hall that has been rented for a large student party (which is why you’ll understand that at the end of the night it’s dirty everywhere), and the place is full of young teenagers, a great part of them being tourists.

It’s not really a place that we would recommend, unless you’re a big group of teenagers willing to try something a little different.  Just a quick tip: some bartenders tend to keep (too often) your change, assuming all loose change is a tip… Finally be aware that you’ll have to pay to get in, and it’ll cost you more than 100 CZK if you get in after 10pm.
