About
The music club Jazz Republic has held concerts since 1997 pretty much without a break. Aside from providing a space for predominantly Czech musicians, the club management has also introduced the Prague audience to foreign artists representing multiple genres. A number of remembrances of these unforgettable concerts, signed posters and photographs decorate the club and form its unique atmosphere. It is mainly the concert dramaturgy, that determines the character of the Jazz Republic and is unique in Europe and probably even the whole world. We cooperate with approximately 30 top Czech jazz musicians, that as residential artists compose ad-hoc music formations performed at the Jazz Republic. Each concert is therefore special, because it will never repeat itself with the specific constitution and repertoire. This is our tribute to jazz music and its basic constructive process, musical improvisations.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
How to get there
  • national Ave • 4 min walk
  • bridge • 5 min walk

First time to visit a jazz bar and it did not disappoint. This was right next to our hotel and thought to try it out. We were there just after 8pm on a Friday night and were charged for entry. The drinks and snacks are reasonably priced too

A jazz night seemed like a very pleasant way to spend time. We booked seats at Jazz Republic via the internet and chose a table very close to the stage. That's because that night we enjoyed live music. Privilege of the Blue was the band that played. The band's guitarist, Karel Barta, I understand he's quite famous in the Czech Republic.
The atmosphere was very pleasant, the drinks at the bar and the snakes had reasonable prices, the music was nice. All in all, a successful evening!

Compact, cosy little club in the Old Town area. Atmospheric and intimate are other superlatives I could use.

Entry is free on weekdays. I'd advise that you book a table as the capacity is limited. You could end up standing or even in another room.

Seem to promote a variety of Czech jazzsters on a rotational basis. I saw Mayflowers on the night that I went. Pretty samey and safe in my opinion, but hey, one man's meat......

Definitely worth a visit.

The ambiance and the music was nice. The place was a bit airless tough. However, the old guy working in the bar was so surprisingly rude and he believes that he made us a whiskey sour, which was the worst I have ever seen. Frankly speaking, it was no whiskey sour at all. There was almost no alcohol, but only sugar in it and had a weird color. When I told him that it was not right, he smashed something aggressively to the desk. I haven’t experienced such a treatment before. He also was really rude when we asked him where we should pay and other totally plausible questions. I think he hates tourists…

We booked a table here and I’m glad we did . It was a Friday night and it got very busy with standing room only . The couple on the next table (who had booked too ) were asked to either move to a smaller table or expect someone to join there table if it got too busy ! I wouldn’t have been happy if they had said this to us but they didn’t anyway the music was great the beer cheap and it went on for a good couple hours worth going after a nice meal you can get some snacks there though eg nachos

Found this little gem on our way back to our hotel one night.. As we both love live music (jazz and blues) we booked a table via internet for the next night..

Free entrance - great live music and a good bar with quite a selection of drinks and food/snacks.

We went back the next night for a new band, great music, good drinks, talk with new people and nice atmosphere = great night out.

My friend and I stumbled upon this place on our last night in Prague and had an incredible time. Brilliant world class musicians, fantastic and affordable drinks, and an intimate yet buzzing atmosphere. We stayed until closing!

No entrance fee charged and its a nice relaxed atmosphere in which to sit back and enjoy the music and a drink. Good beer selection too. It is in the basement and there is a smoking room which mildly permeates throughout but, it transports me back a decade or so, so not entirely negative from my perspective

We went on a Friday night and paid a small charge to enter (there’s a charge on the door for both Friday and Saturday nights for the first half if you want to view the show). Venue is quite small but cosy, drinks are reasonably priced and the music was great.
