Ten Places to Meet Women in Prague



NOTE: Be sure to check out the Personals & Dating area of the Expats.cz Classifieds section for more opportunities to meet new people in Prague. 

Prague is no doubt a beautiful city teeming with equally gorgeous women. Yet, if you think that just because you're a foreigner in Prague beautiful women are going to fall magically into your lap, think again. To meet women, it makes sense that you first need to know where to find them. Let's face it, wandering aimlessly around Old Town Square all night is not going to get you anywhere – except maybe drunk and dizzy. You need some pointers.

From cyberpunk clubs to hipster cafés here's a list of the top ten places to meet women in Prague.

1. Lucerna Music Bar
Considered by many to be the pick-up joint in Prague. Located just off Wenceslas Square, Lucerna Music Bar is renowned for it's 80s and 90s nights (every Friday and Saturday night). The great thing about Lucerna is that it not only plays great tunes but that it has the casual vibe to match. You don't need to dress up or pretend to be anyone you're not – you just have to know how to have fun.

It's no wonder then that the bar attracts a young, positive crowd. Lucerna also offers a consistently great line up of live performances, everything from PJ Harvey to Hip Hop legends The Roots more recently in the past. So it's a great place for meeting Czech women and expats alike with a mutual love of music, dancing, and having a good time. Strongly recommended.

Note: If you're a fan of 80s and 90s music you will also want to check out Futurum over the other side of the river. It is also famed for its 80s and 90s nights and very popular with both expats and Czech women.

2. Radost FX
Vegetarian restaurant by day, beat pumping club by night. Actually, that's a lie. Up until 4am you can still get all the veggie food your heart desires upstairs. You can then enjoy it as you sink further and futher into one of the very chic and cosy sofas upstairs. But don't get too comfortable – you want to meet girls remember! Radost FX is one of the most renowned clubs for meeting women in Prague. Located in the trendy area of Vinohrady, not far from IP Pavlova and Muzeum, means that it is easily accessible no matter where you're based. The perfect location to attract Czechs and expats.

Head to Radost FX any Thursday night for “FX Bounce” their Luxury Hip Hop night.

3. Chapeau Rouge
It's a meet market. This is the place to booze up and party hard. You'll be doing the disco stop to the early hours of the morning, but if you don't watch yourself you can drink so much you'll have forgotten all about the wonderful time you had there by the next day. All the more reason to go back again! You will feel your shoes squelch on the stickiness of the dance floor, and you will need to have a certain prowess in the art of “bar weaving” to get a drink – but there are ladies, lots of ladies.

Chapeau Rouge is located just off the Old Town Square and it's particularly popular with the expat community. Don't expect to meet many Czech women, but rather plenty of other foreigners who are out for a great time. Thursday night is usually Erasmus night, so lots of students. A tip however, is to avoid getting there late. Like weaving your way to the bar, it's a case of first in first served.

Note: If you want to meet expats another great bar to try out is Iron Curtain (most locals refer to it as Propoganda) located on Michalská street in Prague 1.

4. Jam Café
Girls love guys who can dance right? All you have to ask is “Chcete tančit?” in Czech or “You wanna dance?” But before you hit the dance floor and start practicing your “sprinkler”, “lawn mower”, and “crotch grind” you may want to consider getting proper dance lessons. Because sure, girls like guys who can dance, but they prefer guys who can dance well.

Jam Café is just the place to get your booty on. Not just a bar, but also oddly enough a casting agency. Throughout the week they offer classes in different styles of dancing: Monday nights it's Lindy Hop, Wednesday nights Authentic Jazz, and on Tuesday nights the sumptuous Latino rhythms of Salsa. This place has the beautiful balance of being sleek and yet casual, relaxed and yet a hell of a lot of fun.

What are you waiting for? Get your dance shoes on!

5. Solidní Jistota
An 'in' spot for the local 20 and early 30 something crowd. Solidní Jistota is also a favourite haunt of Czech B-list actors, models, and sports stars. Unfortunately though, you can spend a long time trying to be noticed at the bar (all those celebs have priority) but on the plus side during the summer the grill bar stays open 'til 4am so you can easily tuck into a late night steak.

The venue is often packed with beautiful women intent on drinking themselves into near oblivion (I say near because sometimes it seems impossible that Czechs or Slovaks can ever get completely drunk.) Plus, the only beer on tap is the heftily priced Heineken, which makes the prospect of getting drunk even more difficult. The music can also be quite cheesy, so dont expect to be impressed by any amazing Djs, but if you're looking to meet beautiful women you're bound to have a lot of fun. Believe me, a lot of fun.

6. Cross Club
A Bowie-esque labyrinth of passageways, bizarre welded metal sculptures on the walls, and more than a touch of cyber punk - Cross Club is certainly unique. Obviously both Czechs and expats agree, because it's an even mixture. The place is known for it's great music, Djs playing drum and bass, hard trance, side trance, dubstep, and reggae. So if you're looking to meet a dubstep chick or a fellow raver this is the one and only place to be.

Inevitably, in weaving your way through the labyrinth you will find the table football on the top floor – often termed the Czech national sport. A great chance to meet women, but get your game on! For some reason at Cross Club, I always seem to meet Czech girls who can beat me ten – nil. Regardless, if it happens to you, ask her to help you improve your game.

7. Nebe (Křemencova)
The Czechs have just one word for both heaven and sky: nebe. So it might surprise you to find that the club Nebe is undergound. Indeed the only thing “holy” about Nebe might be it's name, for the club has a reputation amongst some as being full of desperate women waiting to ambush any guy who wanders into the place. Whether it's true or not... well, I'll leave that for you to find out. The tip is to go late (one or two in the morning) when you still find beautiful girls on the dance floor.

Nebe is located in the city centre not far from Karlovo Náměstí and Národní Třída, and you will find that it is 50/50 expats and Czechs. Different genres of music are played on different nights during the week with each song accompanied by the music clip projected behind the dance floor. On wednesday nights, the Czech classic music night is positively kitsch. But don't worry, most Czech locals think the clips are just as hilarious as you do. Plus, it provides the perfect opportunity to ask, “What are they singing about?” Or in Czech, “Co zpívají?”

Note: There is more than one place called Nebe in Prague. The one I am recommending is located on Křemencova street.

8. V Lese
Not everyone is a party animal. So if you're after more quiet, arty, intellectual women you may want to start frequenting Prague's numerous quiet/arty/intellectual cafés. V Lese is just one trendy example. In fact, it's quite the hipster hang out. The name V Lese means “in the forest” in Czech  and it's a fitting name because the place, while generally calm during the day can turn wild at night. So there is something to suit everyone.

On the weekends there are always events in the basement. In fact, everytime I'm in that basement I feel like I've entered another world. Tattered rugs cover the floor, assorted motley chairs are scattered about the room, and a picture of Vaclav Havel hangs lopsidedly on the wall seemingly unmoved for the last twenty years. I never know what I will find down there –  live music, plays, parties, markets. In any case, there are always young women in abundance.

9. Bio Oko
If you are a film buff, or let's face it, if you just like films - and who doesn't? Then check out Bio Oko in Prague 7, Kino Světozor in Prague 1, or Kino Aero in Prague 3. Take your pick, they're all run by the same company, and they're all great cinemas. Not to mention, the adjacent bars are also perfect places to meet interesting, intelligent women. Bio Oko regularly shows a varied program of underground films, selections from film festivals, documentaries, big-budget movies, and classics from around the world. Svetozor and Aero meanwhile tend to show more arthouse movies and documentaries. Most films are shown in the original language (not necessarily English), with Czech subtitles. Other events are also regularly organised, including a secret cinema night every month, so check out the website for the latest program.

Ten Places to Meet Women in Prague

Imagine, after you see a movie you can head straight to the bar where you will immediately have a myriad of conversation starters about the same film many of the women in the bar will have likewise just seen.

10. Cloud 9
A sophisticated bar for sophisticated women. If you're looking for your posh spice, you need to go somewhere more fancy than the rest. Check out Cloud 9. Contemporary and signature cocktails are their speciality. On the rooftop of the Hilton Hotel, near Florenc metro station, Cloud 9 offers one of the only opportunities to to take in the skyline views of Prague over the river. Young professionals mingle with guests of the Hilton to a soundtrack of Djs playing lounge and chill-out music. You will not only meet beautiful women at the bar, but you will be served by beautiful women too. The dress code is smart and glamorous, so dress to impress. Open 6:00 till 02:00 and closed on Sundays.

Fashionistas will also want to check out Café – Café. It has a reputation as the coolest café in Prague, where breathtakingly beautiful women sip on flamboyant cocktails and barista coffee. Just don't be one of the guys slobbering at the doorway. Believe me, they're used to it. Instead, dress up, go in, and get your mojo on. You know you want to. Open from 10:00 to 22:00.

Two other sophisticated bars worth a mention are Silwer in Prague 1 and Infinity in Prague 3. Again, dress to impress.

In general if you're looking to meet local Czech women the further you go from the city centre the more Czechs you will encounter. That said though, the further you stray from the centre you are also less likely to meet English speaking Czechs who are interested in meeting expats.

It is worth mentioning that in the Summer the beer gardens in Riegrovy Sady and Letná Park are  great places to meet women, particularly during a sporting match when you can potentially bond through your cheering of a mutual team. Other clubs worth a mention are: Karlovy Lázně, Klub Lávka, Roxy, Harley's, Mecca, Meet Factory, Duplex, and Yes Club.

Yet another option for meeting women in Prague is Rande Motýl (Butterfly Date in Czech). The company operates speed dating nights for different age groups in English and the women are usually 50/50 Czechs and expats. You'll get a free drink on the night and after the musical chairs you can hang out in the bar afterwards to continue any conversations for which three minutes just wasn't enough.

I've read this article several times in the search for some guidance to finding the right sort of girl/lady - to be honest I don't think there really is a 'place' you can designate in order to find the right partner. Back in England, about 10 years ago, I used to find it so easy to walk into a club, go over and start dancing with some girl I'd never met/knew before, and probably (not always, but if you played your cards right) at least get a number to develop things from there. As the years have passed, I'm moving away from the idea that it's best to find a match that you don't know, in a place where you may not have been before. I'm leaning more towards the, "get to know them," side of things these days, especially as getting older opens your eyes to what people really 'want' in a partner, and not this lovey-dovey idea (that by the way still does exist, but it's not the only important thing). I suppose it really depends on what you're looking for - If it's a shack up, with the potential for some extras on top - then I guess going out to bars/clubs is the right thing for you. But if you're looking for someone to start a meaningful relationship with, then I guess 'home' is where the heart is, and so you're probably best starting looking around those who you already know and appreciate for who they are. I say all this, because after 4 years of on and off dating, I can truly say that there aren't many times were i've believed that I could spend more time with the girl I met, than those colleagues of mine who I believe I probably could. Sorry for the long winded spiel, but I felt I needed to give my worthless input into the conversation :D Good luck to all looking for something, hope you get it!
Look at that! SPA traveller (Guest)Published: 12:48:37 07.08.2013
Funny, natural and just a pick suggestion. Anyway, why don't try it? dont forget....any opinion is fair. I'll go to Prague next week and I'll try some of these places and others, just to find boys/nice people for tiny moments, dont' expect too much for a short travel. More than enough!
Comment from: ConfusedManPublished: 06:35:16 02.07.2013
Just came to ask why people are so bitter about this article. Let's face it; the suggestions here have worked for some people, and must have got some people roasted alive. I met an ex girlfriend in a club, I met another exgirlfiend on a bus, and met my current one on the internet! Note these are some of the places we are told you cannot meet a responsible woman. So stop being bitter and gain a bit of confidence to approach a woman, and as for the women, try a bit to climb down that high horse, cheer up and take any advantage available...Who knows?
Yipee (Guest)Published: 10:37:16 01.07.2013
I was looking for a place to meet single, straight men. This article helped... I think. I loved that you offer a lot different options. And hopefully, these places are not meet markets. And perhaps, a few good guys are going to these places and not just looking for a quick fix. I'm not looking for that sort of attention. I think the single tram thing they are going to do sounds creepy. Some of these suggestions sound fun! Sexist? No. At least now, I know where to start. Wish me luck. :)
Ricardo (Guest)Published: 06:57:36 14.06.2013
Great list with detailed description of the places! I'm here as a tourist, but I'm an expat in Vienna and I wish I had something like this there! For those who say "a bit sexist", realize the title says "meet women"..... *meet*. It's not like saying "places to get yourself some b****es". It's an actual, no bullshit description of clubs. There are those with desperate women, and those with intelligent ones. Pick what you like better. By the way, am I the only border-line-OCD here who thinks "Cloud 9" should be item number 9?
picklehead (Guest)Published: 04:38:55 11.01.2013
To all the stuck up, self-righteous, condescending bores who think this article and its recommendations are "creepy" I would say this to you.....lighten up. As for the people who recommend talking to a woman at the tram or in a tea room, that's all well and good but 9 times out of 10 if you approach a woman in the supermarket or library or some other everyday setting and say "hello, I'm Joe. What's your name?" she's going to think your a sick deranged weirdo or a stalker or a sap. Pubs and clubs are a great place to meet women and for those of you who think they are trashy then stick to the dull lives that you lead. All sorts of women go to pubs and clubs. They go there to drink, dance and meet men. Of course the dullards among you will find these settings intimidating but that's just your own insecurity. I like flashy girls. Most men do. Just because a girl is gorgeous with long legs, a huge bosom and flowing locks doesn't mean she's trampy or dumb. I met a bombshell in a pub in Prague. She had a sparkly mini-dress on, jet black hair down to her waist, a beautiful big chest and high heels. Sexy provocative makeup too. We chatted for a while and she snogged me. Her profession? She was a botanist. Booze, brains AND beauty! Beat that!

Johntheirish, your comment was just too funny (in a good way)!
Comment from: JohntheirishPublished: 10:14:13 13.11.2012
This article is sublime... It tells men what they want to hear... Why not? It gives you hope and translate to confidence which is the main ingridient to pull! And women shouldn't be commenting on this ad! Keep away...this is for us... And if you are a woman reading my comment and still single... Just do me a favour don't be so arrogant and admit you also want to have a good time or in men's colloquialism to get laid. Good for the body and mind... So relax and be yourself! As you can see I have no grammar errors. ))))))
Comment from: cocoPublished: 07:18:42 22.10.2012
I like the way that it cites places as potentially being full of 'desperate girls' (read: drunk and looking for a free drink). Charming. Luckily ladies need look no further than Expats for desperate guys! :-)
V. (Guest)Published: 12:03:53 05.10.2012
It is not truth, that there is just one word for haven and sky... There is nebe (heaven) and obloha (sky). But most Czechs do not use these words correctly, that is the other thing.
Pded (Guest)Published: 08:57:48 24.09.2012
Am I going to be the only one to defend this article? It may be a little trite, but the suggestions aren't so bad. Maybe there could have been a few more mentions of libraries, cafes, local pubs, and (god forbid you actually date co-workers) workplaces, but we're talking about an article titled, "The 10 best places to meet women." What use would the article be if it told you to just "go out and talk to any random woman on a tram"? What is the point of such an article, pray tell? Don't bash the article because it actually hit the mark of what it should have been about.
This Justin (Guest)Published: 08:48:53 24.09.2012
I think this article was written with the intention of informing its single audience of places where single males can go to meet and greet single women also having fun, be it on a dance floor or in a quieter atmosphere. Of course everyone has their own opinions, and I for one won't be one to knock the author for sharing his work. By all the negative comments, everyone here obviously has their own, very strong opinions which could be shared far more appropriately in an open forum of discussion or constructive criticism rather than this wall of echoing wall of negative feedback... Anyway, that's my 2 cents. Cheers to the article. And to the negative comments, lighten up and join the discussion.
Katka (Guest)Published: 11:58:46 21.09.2012
I´m Czech girl, and for sure I´m not stupid but I usually going to this places have fun and meet new people. I really don´t understand why are you so offensive here? These are various suggestions where you could go to meet a girl with same interests. Are you hipster? Go to the Cafe V lese. Are you art lover? Go to the Bio Oko, Světozor or Aero-they have a lots of events for everyone. For example this Saturday is event "Feel Prague in a different way" with bike tour the Prague. And off course, if you are to shy talk with girl you can imprese her on the dance floor. And if you can´t even dance, than your last chance could be roller skate disco party-every month in MeetFactory. Boys, don´t be so resentful and have fun!

fdfd (Guest)Published: 10:06:54 13.09.2012
it's a lousy article, but some of the people commenting need to lighten up. yes, men go to bars to meet women - shocker !!! likewise, women go to bars to meet men. also, and this is just a rumour at this stage, but i hear that bears on occasion have been known to shit in the woods. trying to frame that impulse as somehow 'creepy' is both weird and repressed. the chances are your parents were out in a bar and juiced up when they met. get over it. it's called sexual desire and it's perfectly normal and healthy.
Comment from: D.Rayner001Published: 04:57:25 13.09.2012
Lucerna as number one come on. In the past maybe but from my last experiences full of 16 year old girls. Used to have to quality. However this article is a load of bs.
Comment from: BGIPublished: 03:08:15 13.09.2012
Yeah, pointing ten and then suggesting more. You can continue the list with all establishments, then metro stations, parks, offices and whatever you think as place where Eve's successors dare to walk.
Comment from: SeoKungFuPublished: 11:24:59 13.09.2012
Yeah, explained why the human evolution is stuck at the level it is - people "pick" up each other in such places, within the limits of a random not so sober attraction.
Comment from: ElyZaPublished: 10:53:39 13.09.2012
Horrible article! honestly sometimes i go to some of those places, After this top ten I don't feel like going there anymore, too worried to be mistaken for a "rich men hunter", not all the women go clubing to find an husband!
Comment from: jcloiseauPublished: 09:37:05 13.09.2012
To the author, don't listen to naysayers, this article is good. Such topic will always be a flamebait :) Yes there are millions other ways: that isn't the article's point :)
Comment from: davyPublished: 03:02:30 12.09.2012
Expats used to have some interesting, in depth articles on a regular basis. For sure, this one does not fall into that category....

10 better places to meet women in Prague: 10: The tram. Yes you can actually talk to women in normal places and they will be sobre enough to respond intelligently. 9: Coffee shops. Attract higher quality women than trashy clubs and just as approachable. 8: Tea rooms. Same as coffee shops. Depends on your preferred drink. 7: Specialist shops. If you have a particular interest in common then you can connect instantly. 6: Busy canteens/restaurants. What easier way to meet someone than on your lunch break at a shared table? 5: While playing sports. Tennis clubs, rollerblading circuits, beach volleyball courts. Communal sports areas are fantastic opportunities to interact with others. 4: Book/poetry/literature clubs. The whole point of these clubs is to talk. If you are both there you like discussing a common subject. 3: Events. This could be a music concert, sports event, gallery opening etc... If you're both there you have a common interest. See the reoccurring theme here? 2: Work. This might sound crazy but you spend more time with work colleagues than anyone else. Therefore you know if you have a connection with them. 1: Through friends. If you have a healthy, balanced social life you should have plenty of friends. Your friends will also have friends. By socialising amazingly you will meet these new people and will like some of them. It's normal for human beings to do this. Meeting girls in clubs can work but in my experience is not ideal. Just do things that you enjoy like a normal person and you will meet people socially who you like. Common sense really. Going to clubs where everyone is drunk or stoned in the hope you may get laid is a bit desperate and usually finds you lower quality partners than those you'll meet during the day time doing normal things. How much am I gonna get paid for writing this article? ;)
Sara (Guest)Published: 01:15:51 12.09.2012
Seriously? Looks like an article written for creeps, by a creep.

@ Janka (Guest) To name a few: libraries, tennis courts, Milongas, music festivals...
Earl Grey (Guest)Published: 09:55:07 12.09.2012
Time to re-name the article: "Incredibly loud places to go if you are a recently arrived, cheesy, douchebag, ex-pat looking for superficial Czech Girls with low standards and bad taste."
Janka (Guest)Published: 09:21:50 12.09.2012
Rockie, I would disagree with you - I know many smart, sharp and even intellectual girls who go to Café v Lese, Světozor, Oko, Jam Café, depending on the event even in Cross club or Lucerna Music Bar (just pick a concert of the genre you like!). However, I agree that nighclubs are probably not the ideal to meet the love of your life but then, what is? Suggestions?
Comment from: RockiePublished: 08:54:30 12.09.2012
As far as I know, no clever Czech girl would go to such places. These places are for people who want to get drunk or high or both and then have a one night stand. Or for girls who want to "grab themselves" a rich foreigner. Unfortunately I see many expats dating young gold diggers who came from the country to the "big city" to make money and find a rich husband :-(
Comment from: Chill-its-mePublished: 05:53:37 11.09.2012
I agree should of just called in clubs in Prague.......But sexiest, NOPE.....Also why are did you not advertise the expats party's. I have had great success at them.
Comment from: gunneryPublished: 04:58:03 11.09.2012
No, thank you! This article is one of the worst I've ever seen on Expats.cz. And based on your choice of bars, title should be "where to get drunk and laid easily".
Comment from: TimOwenPublished: 04:48:59 11.09.2012
Could you get a more weird, pervy, stereotypical article. Have you ever thought that someone wants to meet someone because of who they are and not because they are an expat or a Czech girl. The fact that you have trawled all of these places looking for women says it all really. But 10/10 on the creepy sexism though.
Dom (Guest)Published: 04:25:10 11.09.2012
I think the title really should have been just "Great places to hang out in Prague" without pointing to anything about women... I'd hate myself to be presented as a potential prey to anyone - a Czech guy or an expat.. I'd much more likely enjoy a night out with some nice people who aren't actually going to hit on me.. and maybe then there's a chance of getting somewhere! Once things get too obvious it's boring. PS. What about Jazz Dock, Palac Akropolis, Roxy... the list is very long.
Comment from: CkoenPublished: 03:35:30 11.09.2012
A sad article, painfully stereotyping both expats and Czech women...
Gwyneth (Guest)Published: 03:31:49 11.09.2012
Why not just call this "good clubs in Prague"? Seems a bit... creepy/sexist somehow.
