Already before stepping into the Jazz Dock guests know that they are in for something amazing. This eclectic jazz venue in the old part of Prague is the rising star in the city’s buzzing nightlife. Jazz Dock, which Downbeat Magazine included in its 150 great jazz venues, always leaves people wondering what the best part of their evening at the club was. Was it the incredible location on the Vltava River? Or was it the sophisticated interiors or the excellent acoustics? Or perhaps one of the exciting acts Jazz Dock presents every week?
Not many places in the world give jazz enthusiasts a 360° sensorial experience like Jazz Dock does. Located in the beautiful conservation area of old Prague, near Malá Strana and Kampa, it’s the perfect place for those who want to spend an evening with good live music in a cool environment. The fact that Jazz Dock is by the Vltava River adds a touch of romantic to every visit to the venue.
A unique experience…always
At Jazz Dock there is always something going on. During a single evening, it happens quite often that some of the top local bands put up a show and then share the stage with other artists for exciting improvised collaborations. Jazz, soul, funk, blues…you name it! At Jazz Dock, there is music at 360°.
The venue is also the coolest stage in Prague for local and foreign crowds to attend gigs by critically-acclaimed international artists. The variability of the indoor and outdoor spaces even allows more chamber-like concerts to be arranged for music enthusiasts, who can enjoy the show from comfy arm chairs.
In the busiest nights, the conventional tables disappear, making almost the whole floor available to the audience. What better way to spend an evening that being taken away by the rhythm of jazz, soul and blues while admiring a nice outdoor view?
Then there is Blocks On Docks, popular several-days concert blocks that always focus on a concrete jazz genre, specific country or region and even jazz instruments. The series showcases prominent local or international performers and some of Prague’s festivals.
In addition, Jazz Dock holds Music Cinema, event that presents jazz and blues personalities through a screening of a documentary or concert followed by expert commentary and discussion.
During the spring and summertime, Jazz Dock is one of Prague’s most popular places to enjoy a drink and relax. The beautiful surroundings of the outdoor café, located on the roof of the club, make it an excellent choice for those who want to take a break from the daily routine an enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine, while listening to the sound of the Vltava River.
And on colder days, you can still enjoy the beautiful view from inside with the sounds coming from the Jazz Dock’s excellent acoustics system.
If you like your jazz with a cold drink, the traditional drinks and signature cocktails served by the “futuristic” ten-meters long bar will make your experience at Jazz Dock simply perfect.
