History of the 5-story club
But first the location: Karlovy Lazne occupies a 14th-century spa, right by the Vltava river with Charles Bridge just a stone’s throw away. The mosaics from that time remain part of the club until today. On two floors even the pools remain. And although today there are no more aristocrats soaking in hot water to forget about their dreary days, it still gets hot and wet — if from sweat or spilt drinks becomes harder and harder to say as the night progresses. The ancient pools now serve as dance floors. Bars, seating and sofas are arranged around them.
The original spa eventually turned into a cafe. Czech poet and journalist Karel Havlíček Borovský’s paper was also published here for some time. After a fire, the building was abandoned and fell into a state of decay in the second half of the 19th-century.
Renovation began some time after the Velvet Revolution in 1989 and finally, in 1999, Karlovy Lazne opened its doors — the project was hugely ambitious at the time and proved an enduring success. The club has been the most-visited club in the region every year since it opened. It’s constantly being upgraded, reimagined and redesigned, boasts one of the most cutting-edge sound systems in Europe and an elaborate, hyper-modern interior design.

The World's first Robot DJs and Barkeepers
There’s always at least one bar and dance floor. In fact, each floor is like a separate club, with its own theme, name, design, style of music and totally unique interior design.
Mainstream, Oxygen Bar and Ice Bar
Expect chart music, a huge LED panel and a video-screen dancefloor. This is also where the innovative Oxygen Bar is and the Ice Pub. The Oxygen Bar serves highly-concentrated oxygen infused with essential oils to ease your hangover the morning after. In the Ice Bar everything you can see or touch is made of ice and the temperature never rises above -7° Celsius (jackets are provided).
Climb into a 14th-century pool turned dance-music dance floor with impressive laser and light effects to match. This is also where the Hypercube, a trippy, immersive laser light show, happens.
One of Karlovy Lazne’s strengths is it’s big enough to really offer something for everyone. This is the retro floor with guilty-pleasure music from decades past, vintage decor, a dance floor made up of color-changing light cubes and a walk-through fog screen.
HIP HOP AND R’N’B
Decorated in neo-baroque style this floor offers cushy golden couches, bean bags, soft lights and mellow music — it’s the place to re-energise when the world below gets too hectic.
