    **** PRAGUE 10C MEET UP PARTY + EURO CUP FOOTBALL FINAL - SUNDAY 1st JULY - start 8pm ***

    I have booked the whole downstairs pub (50 places) of Malostranska Beseda. Located just 5 min walk from the Charles Bridge, serving the best beer in Prague, local czech food and as added bonus they gonna screen the football euro cup finals the same night (8.45 kick off).

    The manager was so kind and generous and didnt require any obligation for minimum consumption (despite they normaly do this especially for special nights like this). I got a strong believe we will fill this place up (counting on you all that have expressed your interest earlier) and enjoy the night in a style ...

    Password for entrance is: Pearl Jam ;)


    http://www.malostranska-beseda.cz/cs/pi ... vnici.html

    Hi there

    Assume this invitation is open to all tenclub members/PJ fans? I will be arriving on 1 July in Prague. I have already seen the phenomenal manchester and Amsterdam shows!

    See you all tomorrow! 8-)
    http://www.malostranska-beseda.cz/pub/i ... a7_800.jpg

    address:
    Pivnice Malostranská beseda
    Malostranské náměstí 21
    110 00 Praha 1

    Rock the Kafka!

    currency - Czech Koruna (CZK / Kč) - 26 per Euro

    Exchange office:
    best exchange office with best rates is to be found just few meters from the Old Town Square at the Franz Kafka museum - http://www.exchange.cz/contact.php . - (Náměstí Franze Kafky 2 - Prague 1).

    Arriving by plane:
    Airport - 30 mins by bus number 119 which takes you to metro station Dejvicka on the Green A Line. (32 CZK) No need to take those infamous taxis...

    Arriving / leaving by train:

    Hlavni Nadraží - Central station - metro Red C line
    Nadrazi Holesovice - metro Red C line

    Venue - O2 arena - metro station Ceskomoravska - Yellow B Line
    plan of the venue - http://www.sazkaticket.cz/TicketEN/imgD ... d=19105622

    Prague is pretty much safe (obviously same as other big city when respecting all the rules). Staying close to the O2 arena doesnt make much sense:
    1) the location isnt great - its in the middle of bit of a industrialized district of Prague
    2) there is metro station Ceskomoravska straight at the O2 arena which takes you to the center within 15 minutes or so
    3) metro operates till midnight - so we all will board it after the gig and head center for the after-show party
    4) as any other major city in Europe you could find variety of international hotel chains various price range, hostels etc...

    Accommodation:
    http://www.aplus-hostel.cz/en - great location (just on the Metro yellow - B line - which takes you to O2 arena within few minutes...)

    http://www.travellers.cz/en/dlouha-pens ... prague.php - with a famous pub Lokal just next door

    Prague - Berlin train
    (im personally doing it with bunch of friends on 4th July at 6.30 am, tix available 2 months prior departure - as its start of the school holidays and czech national holiday as well comes in the week of the gig, I recommed to book your train tickets as soon as possible - 3rd/4rd May..., price cca 30 euros) - https://www.cd.cz/eshop/

    Public transport:
    MHD - metro, trams, buses - 32 CZK for a 90 minute journey. Recomended.
    http://www.dpp.cz/en/transport-around-prague/

    Venue - O2 arena - metro station Ceskomoravska - Yellow B Line
    plan of the venue - http://www.sazkaticket.cz/TicketEN/imgD ... d=19105622

    and all the touristic stuff to be found here .... http://www.prague-guide.co.uk/

    Best beer in Prague:

    Beer and food is affortable (yeah, lets avoid the cheap word "cheap" ok? :) ) - between 1-2 euros for Pilsner Urquell, food around 6 euros.

    Pub Lokal - serving best beer in the world - straight from the "tank" - a big reservoir - nonpasteurized - fresh. Serving traditional czech food only. The owner admited that despite he runs several other restaurants, luxury types, Lokal easily beats them in profit ...
    Dlouha street - Dlouhá 33, 110 00 Praha 1 - http://www.ambi.cz/ambiente-lokal-kontakt_eng.php
    Coincidently this pub is located in the same building as club Roxy and Travellers Hostel - http://www.travellers.cz/en/dlouha-pens ... prague.php
    Oh, and its 5 min walk to metro station - Namesti Republiky - straight on the yellow B line which takes you to the O2 venue in 15 minutes (thk its 5 stops to station Ceskomoravska)

    Kolkovna group - http://www.kolkovna.cz/index.php?langua ... 3&show=hot - good beer, good food.

    Pub u Hrocha - if you wanna experience good old (well think one of the oldest pubs in Prague) with nothing just beer, very smoky inside - surely check this one out - Praha 1. Thunovská 10 - just next to the British embassy ... oh, the beer is just .... aaaawwww, especially after crossing Charles bridge in hot summer afternoon....

    Wanna meet the band? - most likely staying here - http://www.preview.fourseasons.com/prague/ - no luck? - enjoy a good Urquell just across the street in pub U Rudolfína - http://www.praguepubs.co.uk/pubs-details.php?id=3

    Or just let it all flow - walk the streets of the old town, cross the river Vltava through the old Charles Bridge and head up towards the castle Hradčany to take the magnificent view of Prague....

    enjoy your stay.

    =============
    Its gonna be Pearl Jam's fourth date in Prague - previous setlists here:
    2006 - http://www.pearljam.com/show/sazka-arena-sep-22-2006

    This meet-up's a great idea, thanks! I'm not much of a football fan, but I'm in Prague and I can't miss the final (I'm Italian!). So I'm sure there' no better choice than meeting up with other fellow PJ fans. I'll be there with my husband. See u there!! :D

    what's the quickest way to get to the pre-party from a-plus hostel?
  • alesekalesek Posts: 700
    so plenty of us made it already yesterday there, so we know what is it all about... :) a pre-pre-party... :D

    its gonna be a hot night again.

    quickest way is from a-plus to the meet up place? I think it shud be cca 30 min walk

    or Metro Florenc, change at Mustek for the green line A and go to Malostranska station and then 5 min walk...

    Hi, can you recommend some reliable, inexpensive taxi chain in Prague? ( it would be great if online reservation was available).
    To many bags and only 2 hands... :(

    yeah - those cabs at the airport are quite ok, no neeed to reserve ..... should be around 600 czk (cca 25 euros) to get to the center. Fix price.

    Hi all

    Last night was great! Would have loved to have talked to each one of you there. Finally got to meet the mighty Dimi! Fantastic to meet you mate.

    Also spent some quality time with Guacomolejoe and Polly as well as Aidan and Sharon from Ireland. Not to mention The Rob of course who I have bumped into in Buenes Aires, Amsterdam and Prague. Boy does he get around!

    Enjoy tonight all you wonderful people! Hope to see you in South Africa someday! :D

    I am hoping for either Long Road opener or Thumbing my way or BOTH!!!

    Anything will be great though....never a bad show.

    @alesek Thanks for all the info!

    Really hoping to make this trip and that post just helped me out a lot. Hope the rumours are true and get to see this great city. I know it is early but quick question. As long as my flight is not delayed(always a risk) would it be ok if I arrived at 3:30pm day of the show. The hotel is minutes away from the venue. Just curious how long of a trip it is from the airport to the 02 when making all the different connections. Google says it is 1 hour taking the yellow RJ and then the 25. Is that fairly accurate? Thanks
