The Prague 3 neighborhood of Zizkov is the city's Lower East Side, Silverlake, and Mission District rolled into one: a formerly down-at-heel area quickly turning into hipster central before it moves on to 20-year-old Scotch and luxury condos. Zizkov remains before its peak, however, and Akropolis is the area's cultural capital: a concert venue that hosted the Pixies as well as a bar and restaurant where Venice Biennale artist Frantisek Skala designed everything, right down to the light fixtures. Most nights, live music means DJs, superstar or otherwise, but the performances have been branching out into theater, dance, and up-and-coming art-rock bands like Denmark's Mew. Slightly dirty, very smoky, and a heck of a lot of fun.
