Brno is so compact, that the city doesn’t have specific nightlife districts but rather key pubs, bars and nightclubs that are a must-visit while you’re visiting. From traditional fare to modern tavernas, Brno has a variety of different pubs you can dip into for a pint or two (or three!) You can’t go wrong with a classic Irish pub, and St. Patrick Irish Pub is a little glimmer of the Irish drinking spirit right in the heart of the Czech Republic. All the beer and booze in Brno is cheap as chips, and this includes top-rated pubs like this one.
A pro tip for exploring Brno nightlife for weekends is that a lot of the restaurants open until late and serve tipple until at least midnight! Don’t stroll past a venue that looks like just a restaurant without keeping your eye out for a big bar! Stopkova Plzeňská Pivnice is a prime example of this. The popular Czech restaurant has an encompassing bar in house, and you can even treat yourself to a bite to eat if you’re feeling tipsy. Pub/bar/club/music venue the Music Lab is pretty hard to categorise, but worth a mention all the same. Also in the centre, you can listen to live music while toasting to the groom to be in this epic nightlife spot.
Bars in Brno
It might be a bold statement, but bars are what Brno does best. There’s far too many bars to visit in just one night, leaving you with a lot of choice depending on what kind of celebrations you want. If you’re looking for an adventure like no other to kick off your last night of freedom, how about paying a visit to Bar který neexistuje – translates to ‘the bar that doesn’t exist’. Located in the city centre, there’s not too much we can give away about this mysterious hotspot, but if you want a night to remember, definitely make this a stop on your weekend!
For an experience like no other, you have to head to the Sky Ice Bar! Exactly what it says in the name, this swish bar as a -20 degree ice room where you can enjoy a drink with a chill. The first ice bar in the Czech Republic, your groom to be is sure remember the weekend with a trip to this unique bar. Speaking of different experiences, pop your head into Kabinet Huličů Shisha bar for a drink and a smoke in this relaxing environment.
Brno is home to a lot of secret underground systems, and this includes a few hidden bars located under your feet! Charlie’s Hat is one of the most popular bars for this, with curved stone-brick ceilings and a quirky feel. We’ve mentioned beer a lot because it’s so cheap, but what about wine fans? If you’re a big lover of a glass of wine, Jedna Báseň bar is a classy and chilled-out place to visit. Plus, wine is almost as good value as the beer!
It may be small for a city, but Brno packs a punch when it comes to nightclubs! Czech locals are a fan of dancing until dusk, and the city has a multitude of venues to facilitate celebrations just like a stag do in Brno. Why don’t you start off at the biggest and most popular? Sono Centrum is a monster club that names itself as a high quality music club. Inside, you’ll find a stage for live music, 700 seats and space for 1,200 people standing – so your group will be fine!
Unlike a lot of cities in the UK, you don’t need to just stay at Sono Centrum all night or weekend. There’s plenty more places to dip your toes into and make the most of your lads trip away! Check the schedule and head to Fléda for world-renowned artists, local musicians and free-flowing booze all night. Situated on Štefánikova Street, the massive venue also holds Elektra and Vendeta club nights alongside live music if that genre of music is more your scene.
