Pixies, Afghan Whigs, The Strokes, Kid Loco, Stereolab and the Dead Kennedys are just some of the first class bands that have played a show there, but Palac Akropolis is much more than just a rock venue. This cultural complex located in a monumental building hosts groovy DJ nights, a selection of independent theater performances and art exhibitions, 2 bars, a cafe and a superb whimsically designed restaurant serving quality food. Akropolis is a true Mecca of any concertgoer, culture lover and hipster in the city upon the Vltava. Located in the trendy neighborhood of Zizkov and looked after by the babies climbing the controversial Zizkov TV Tower, Akropolis is dangerous. As many locals will confirm, once you enter, it will not let you go. It comes as no surprise then that Palac Akropolis has won multiple awards, The Best Rock Club from the Prague Post weekly newspaper and Interior of the Year from the Society of Czech architects. Palac Akropolis is home to many fascinating cultural and artistic projects including those dedicated to the alternative genre and unique art forms. EuroConnections is an endless festival offering the best of independent music from the old continent, while Akropolismultimediale maps the exciting combination of modern electronic music with new media such as interactive art, video art, digital film or video mixing. If any of this sounds at all interesting to you or if you are just looking for a cool place to hang out in Prague and meet interesting people, Palace Akropolis with its many varied options and unforgettable atmosphere is just the place for you.
