    will do, staying near charles bridge about a block or two away, noticed a bar named friends on the net. I'll be traveling solo not really wanting to go get hustled at the strip clubs, any decent bars you'd recomend??

    the subway closes early certain nights....and they bring in armed guards to clear it out icon_eek.gif. so, make sure you check the schedule or be prepared to take a cab

    There's a decent gay gogo/cabaret club one subway stop from the Charles Bridge area. Go to the subway stop nearest the Charles bridge called Staroměstská‎ and go to the Mustek stop. Then walk down Vodickova to Jame street to the Escape Club. Go to the door and ring the bell. They'll buzz you in.

    Can't say it's the best club in the world, but it might be the best in Prague. You'll be greeted by some nice looking boys. Don't be afraid to tell them what type of guy turns you on so you don't waste time or money on someone that doesn't do it for you. Yes, they expect you to "buy me drink".

    It gets started late, so don't go too early. Full body shows start at 11pm. Drinks aren't cheap, about 80 crowns each, it adds up quick so go prepared. Plus there's a 200 crown cover.

    Definitely get the unlimited travel card. It's 110 crowns (about $6.50) and lets you travel any subway or trolley line for 24 hours. It's even cheaper if you get a 3 day card.

    It's probably a little cheesy, but go to the top of the clock tower in the old town square and plan on being there at the top of the hour when the trumpeteer comes out to play a little tune. Plus the view is unbeatable.

    There's a pretty decent sports bar on Liliova street called O'Che's that has good cheap beer and an utterly adorable bartender that I couldn't stop staring at. icon_wink.gif

    Have fun. Prague is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited.

    Here's a few. Will try to think of more later:
    -Make sure to try out a knedliky dish at a real, local place.
    -Study up on major food Czech and take a 1-sheet piece of paper with all the important food words written down. Stuff like, pork, chicken, beef, grilled, fried, baked. You can get really great food if you can decode the menus quickly.
    -There are a few cool day trips. Cesky Krumlov is a good one and super scenic. There's also a church made of bones that's supposed to be cool, but I haven't made it there yet.
    -Rest up for some old town bar hopping at night. The corridors of the old streets at night have a hard-to-beat old world ambiance. It's a really fun town to explore.
    -Go on a brewery tour.
    -Pensions and private guest rooms can be a great deal and some of the owners like showing guests around. Good way to see through the eyes of a local.

    What your intrested in? icon_smile.gif

    You should def. go see Cross Club... its not a gay club.
    but worth seeing.

    and def. should make a reservation to a restaurant called Lehka Hlava, its one of the best in Europe in it's category. Prices are okay.

    Friends is by far the best gay place i think so atleast.
    theres just people having fun, no hooking up.. no dark rooms.
    Just great friendly atmosphere.

    or Club Saigon, its located in the gay district Vinohrady, you gotta check it up online, and then you find it and buzz the ring, they let you in.
    nice atmosphere, a gay couple owns it, its a small place, but very nice... their dog is chilling around there with all the people and stuff icon_smile.gif
    just sweet.

    so what else do you wanna see?

    Great advice guys, sounds like i'll be a busy little for three and half days, plan on doing the major toursit stuff square, castle, clock tower, during the afternoon, then to the bars around 10 or so. was gonna try to do some rafting but the agencies i've contacted don't have any planned so I'll just let the road tell where go during the day. Be great find some other single travler on the first day to enjoy it with.

    As for a night out, you should head to Vinohrady neighborhood where there's plenty of options. I suggest you check out Saints Bar for early drinks. It has quite a friendly atmosphere and you'll surely meet some people there. I heard Termix is nice too but I haven't been there.

    Then plan to spend the rest of the night at Club ON. It used to be called Club Valentino. It has three floors and has everything you could ask for. It has a cafe, dance floors, chill out areas, and a really dark cruising area. icon_eek.gif

    Oh and you'll get to rub elbows with a lot of Belami boys here. Well, you'll pretty much see them walking around town anyway. icon_biggrin.gif

    Prague is such an amazing city. It's one of my favorites. I'm so excited for you.

    Enjoy Prague! icon_smile.gif
