Prague is a big city, and with over 400+ clubs in the surrounding area, here are ___ of the most notable nightlife spots in central Prague.
Buddha Bar - Prague
The Buddha Bar is a world-wide restaurant and bar that prides itself on its world-renowned Buddha Bar music CD's. Explore the zen life in one of Prague's most chic restaurant/bar establishments. Drinks are pricy, and the staff looks like they should be on the front cover of GQ magazine. The upstairs bar overlooks a balcony of lamps that hover above an oversized Buddha. Live DJ's play deep house and lounge tracks throughout the week and during weekend brunch. The BB attracts a more mature crowd. This is a great place to pregame before the hardcore dance clubs.
Jakubská 8, Praha 1
Karlovy Lazne Club
Karlovy claims that it is the largest club in the EU. Once you enter its mysterious doors, you have five floor options to choose from. Each area features a different tone and atmosphere. Some floors play mainstream / hip-hop, where other floors play dance music. If you're not into dancing, find the 5th level chillout floor where you can sit cafe style at tables or on pillows atop of plush rugs. Ques are long and the crowd is younger. Many pub crawls dump their pack of drunken souls here. The club is near Charles Bridge.
Smetanovo nabrezi 198/1, Old Town, Prague 1
Roxy often features popular European headliner DJ's such as Jooris Voorn and other bigwig EU spindoctors. There is a small chillout zone chocked full of white leather couches. Walk down the stairs to a wide-open dance floor that overlooks the DJ booth and an audio-visual screen in the backdrop. Check the schedule to see what type of music will be featured for the night, though it mostly plays electronic.
Dlouhá 33, Prague 1
Bar, dance club and underground get-togethers - the CR is a one-stop nightlife shop. The deeper you go, the darker the lights and the music. It's quirky, but not fancy. It's a place to sport your dancing shoes and skinny jeans to the vibration of the music. The entry level is the bar, the middle level is a dance club and the underground level is part bar / underground dance club. The underground level gets smoky and you may occassionally see a bag of drugs, but as long as you have your head on straight, it's a fun time.
Jakubská 647 Prague 1-Old Town
This club features more mainstream music like rap, hip-hop and R&B. The club attracts a mix of students, international travelers and locals alike. This decent-sized club features a chillout zone for those to rest their dancing feet. **This is located in Praha 2 but added this in since its a popular spot.**

Melantrichova 17, Praha 1
Open 7 days per week with 7 different DJ's and 7 different nighly parties, M1 is a place for the lucky at heart. M1 prides itself as being the only "ultra lounge" in Prague. The sleek and chic decor attracts jet-setter wanna-bes to chill in an "art-deco" leather couch with a cocktail in hand. The music ranges from house to hip hop.
Masna 1, Prague 1, Czech Republic
Atelier is a place to "chill inn." The Chill Inn zone features pool table, food menus and even a swanky buddha. The prices are fair and even have a variety of nonalcoholic options such as coffees, teas and alcohol-free beer. If your aiming for VIP status, book one of the tables behind the plush-satin red straps. The club/bar contains a handful of resident DJ's and loyal locals. And if you're anything like the Big Lebowski, check out the rugs, it really ties the room together.
