Cross Club, Prague

Tel: 420 736 535 053's insider take:

This down-and-dirty bar, club, and theater started out as a squat before going legit, and there's still a decidedly anarchistic feel throughout its many subterranean levels. Located way out near the Holesovice train station, Cross Club is a blend of Eastern Europe and old East Village; an art colony in an urban wasteland; a smoke-filled den of iniquity. Every room is decorated with kinetic sculptures of found objects that range from clothes irons to stereo speakers—one room even has moving foosball tables mounted on the ceiling. Drinks are cheap and there are frequent punk-rock, ska, rockabilly shows, or DJ sets to bring in multilingual, artsy patrons. It might be hard to find, but once you see the house-high rotating sculptures out front, you're home.
