Újezd is an area where many of the Prague locals spend their time. There aren’t that many tourists, it’s in the downtown, there’s a number of nice bars and cafés and the Petřín hill is just across the road…
One of the best-known bars is called Klub Újezd. Open since 1990, it is a night-life classic. It started as a music club but live music performance were forbidden some ten years ago. It’s no big deal, though – it is a great place to visit anyway.
Currently, Klub Újezd is a three-floor bar. In the basement there is a small bar, a few tables, a DJ’s stage and a table-football. The first floor is more spacious with a large bar. But, if you plan a party, you should definitely make a reservation for the second floor which somehow feels most comfortable of all. It, among others, offers a very nice sight of the street and Petřín hill.
What makes Klub Újezd unique, are the decorations and paintings. For instance, on the walls there are paintings of strange people with disfigured faces – as well as many other, sometimes even more pleasant scenes. Plus, the whole club also serves as a free gallery – of photography, usually.
Thanks to its very late closing-hours, Klub Újezd is a very common place for late-evening or early-morning chill-outs. Add very reasonable shooter prices and you’ve got a place you have to visit!
