Few people know that Prague jazz clubs actually represent a big slice of city life. Although their programmes aren’t advertised on every street corner, such clubs have been in existence for decades. Music plays seven days a week there – and with great enthusiasm. What’s more, these jazz dens are often housed in amazing spaces. For example, Jazz Republic can be found in a historic cellar in the very centre of Old Prague, in Jilská Street. (NB: don’t look for it at Můstek subway station – Jazz Republic has moved to a new address). The vaulted ceilings and the cosy interior make Jazz Republic a great venue that visitors remember fondly. A couple of tables, the small stage and a drink of your choice – what more would you need?
Some jazz clubs charge a high price to get in, but Jazz Republic does things differently - it costs nothing to get in! “We want people to discover jazz and blues, and the venue is the only club where admission is free throughout the week,” says the operator proudly.Marek, Avantgarde Prague
