THE GAY PRAGUE SCENE
The Czech Republic is justly famed as a highly liberal and gay-friendly destination and the Prague gay scene, mainly centred around the Vinohrady area near the city centre, is particularly vibrant and accessible. There are around 30 gay bars, discos and saunas in the city as a whole with new establishments opening all the time.
Homosexuality in the Czech Republic is legal and the minimum age of consent is 15. In keeping with the mood of increasing tolerance the Czech parliament approved a law allowing gay partnerships in 2006 and there is now a campaign for full marriage equality.
This guide to the gay scene features all of the gay discos and bars in Prague that we know of. We have also included a number of erotic bars which are clearly described. You should be clear that in these places the young Czech boys you meet will be interested only in your wallet and not in your personality. But in many of the other bars and clubs it is possible to meet and get to know normal Czechs. Prostitution and the promotion of it is legal in the Czech Republic provided the prostitute is at least 18 years old.
The Lesbian scene is limited to just a few bars, with only Jampa Dampa lesbian-owned and managed but most of the regular bars listed here are welcoming to girls.
GAY BARS & CAFES
Prague has a wide selection of bars and cafes attracting a predominantly gay crowd, from the upmarket Dandy to more regular smaller bars such as Saints and Q Cafe which have a strong tourist and local following respectively. JampaDampa is more popular with lesbians.
GAY CLUBS & DISCOS
The permanent gay club scene in Prague is dominated by the two Vinohrady clubs Termix and Club Maxx (with the same owners) and the Old-town located Friends club, all of which have regular parties. It is important however not to miss the occasional gay nights in other clubs, such as OMG which normally takes places in Mecca.
STRIP BARS & SEX CLUBS
Prague has a deserved reputation as the gay sex capital of Eastern Europe, earned due to the large number of young nubile men in the city and their eager willingness to earn some extra spending money by giving you an especially good time.
Although to describe the Czech capital as the ‘Bangkok of Europe’ might be a bit of a stretch, it is stupendously easy to have sex in Prague, even if you look like Johnny Vegas’ chubbier elder brother. And you don’t necessarily have to part with your hard earned cash either, there are dark rooms and gay saunas and sex clubs galore.
