U Sudu is the place to be
For being somewhat of a hidden bar, U Sudu is THE place to pregame at before the night gets wild. When you walk in the door, your first impression will be that U Sudu is no more than an ordinary bar. But as you keep walking and turning corners, you will keep discovering new rooms underground, in a cave-like set up. There are 5 different rooms all spread out from each other, and several bars to get your favorite drinks. There are always people there everyday of the week- mostly locals but also some foreigners who have heard about this secret bar. U Sudu is the best place to meet with a group of friends before going out to a club or wherever the night takes you. In each dim-lit room, there is always different music, bringing on different vibes constantly.
Very cheap beer (less than $2 for a half-liter of beer), and no cover charge.

Take the tram or Metro to Karlovo Namesti and walk 2 blocks alongside the park. It is located directly across the street from Hooters.
This is one of the best places to go during any night of the week!
Double Trouble is one of the most popular “cellar bars” in Prague (a cellar bar is an underground bar/club, with a dance floor and several rooms and tables). It is conveniently located between Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square, and drinks are reasonably priced. DJ’s are playing every night from Monday to Saturday, and the atmosphere will build up as the night gets going. Definitely worth checking out if you are in Prague on the weekdays. Most ‘Bar Crawls’ will take you to this place at some point during the night. There is no cover charge, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Super Cheap! Very reasonable prices for beer and mixed drinks, and no cover charge.

Chapeau Rouge is another underground bar that is great to party on any night of the week. There are 3 levels- the main level is a chill bar with a bunch of tables, 2nd level underground is a room with a DJ (usually house music) and lots of dancing, and the 3rd level below the ground is another DJ (usually dub-step) with more dancing and a bar. Generally speaking, the music gets more intense/psychedelic as you go farther downstairs. Chapeau has music playing all day long, so there is no bad time to have a drink or a smoke here. This place seems like it never closes, and is located right in Old Town Square. I have never had a bad time at Chapeau!
Cheap cheap cheap and no cover!

This typical Irish Bar is located in the heart of Old Town Square. The Dubliner is big, and has everything that an Irish Bar should have (beer, sports and fun). There is always Guinness, Fosters, Heineken, Stella Artois, Strongbow Cider and Staropramen on tap, so make sure to stop here if you like quality beer. On weekends, there is live music of DJ’s performing, which draws in a big crowd. The Dubliner is also a great place to watch sporting games, because there is 2 big screens at each end of the main bar area, and passionate fans to give this bar a great atmosphere.
A little more expensive than your average bar in Prague. Beers are about $4-5 USD.
