Dining & Nightlife
Dining in Prague can be inexpensive if done outside the center. Czech cuisine can be found in most restaurants. Pork is the primary meat served; however, other types of meat can be ordered as well. In most restaurants an average meal, including a beer, costs about 150 crowns (7 USD). It is interesting to note that a small glass of Coke is typically more expensive than a big glass of excellent beer.
Many other cuisines can be found in Prague. One restaurant that appeals to expats in particular is called Bohemia Bagel. There are a few Bohemian Bagels locations in Prague. The closest one to Tutor is in Old Town Square behind the Tyn Church. They offer a wide variety of foods specializing in bagels, burgers and sandwiches.Fast food chains have made their way to the Czech Republic. McDonalds and KFC are the two predominant chains. Prices there are the same as anywhere else with a typical value meal costing about 100 crowns (less than 5 USD).
Prague has great nightlife including the largest club in Eastern Europe called Karlovy Lazne. Most clubs and bars are open until 5:00am. However some are open 24 hours a day. Cover charges are not common. Occasionally, some of the bigger clubs in the center will charge a cover especially when there is a special DJ. Czech beer is considered the best in the world, which explains its popularity and I can tell you it’s true. A half-liter of beer costs approximately 25 crowns (little over a dollar). Mixed drinks are a bit more expensive costing about 100 crowns (5 USD) per drink. Shots range in price from 30 – 90 crowns (1,5 - 5 USD) on average. Most Czechs go out late around 11:00 or 12:00. Like any city Friday and Saturday are the popular nights to go out.
