Prague in winter

I think you will find the number of guys available is pretty constant year-round. Prague is a hugely popular winter-weekend destination for German and British tourists and gay travellers make up a reasonable proportion of the visitors.

Don't expect snow, or even cold, all the time though. It can be very cold and it does snow but there are a number of relatively mild days throughout winter.

I do not normally visit the gay bars in Prague so I can't really comment except that I believe Wild Boys is new and might be a little short of business at times, partly because of its location. If you go, try Friday or Saturday. I am sure you have read elsewhere about the other clubs - Escape (expensive and maybe not what it once was) and Temple (much cheaper) which are the standard clubs for foreign visitors.

Thanks for your posting! In addition, I'd like to suggest that you guys also use http://www.boytoy.com; there is a lot of other info about Prague which is relatively recent.

One of the posters lives in Europe and goes to Prague often; he's given up some vital and interesting and useful info. [This is NOT written to discount what you shared, Isis--just an addition

of which I just thought about.]

Buddy of mine is over there this weekend. Only have heard about his first night so far, but not much has changed since his last visit about a year ago.

 

Escape has become pretty useless. My friend suspects that the boys don't make their money from clients anymore - instead they're paid go-go boys by the club itself. The guys make little to no effort to engage with customers. He said there were no knockouts, but lots of "8s."

 

He said Temple wasn't as busy as last trip, but still much better than Escape (still pains me to hear that - we both used to LIVE for our trips to Prague to hit up Escape).

 

For the first time since I've known him, he's taken to the internet to find some fun. He's always been 100% uncomfortable with doing that. He liked the way things used to go down in the old Escape... you meet a guy, spend the night chatting and then have your fun after he finishes. He doesn't like rolling the dice with an internet meetup. I get it... but now it's pretty much the way it's going to be.

 

He didn't get to the new place yet because of the location, but said if he doesn't meet up with the internet guy tonight he'll go check it out.

Just got his email about night #2 in Prague.

 

His GayRomeo find did show up and I think he'll now reconsider his reluctance to hire online frow now on. The guy (persona99 is his username) was apparently epic. The kid doesn't smoke or drink, so he was a cheap date! He's 5'3 so if you like them tall, he's not for you but I guess he's a strong little dude... picked my buddy up and threw him around in the hotel room lol. They went to Escape for a bit - it was worse than night 1... lots of older strippers and none that turned his head. Too bad, Escape used to be spectacular. Pretty much puts a damper on my booking a $1000+ flight over there anytime soon.

 

They didn't make it to Temple or Wild Boys last night - the GayRomeo guy though worked at both in the past. Night ended with lots of fun at the hotel and the guy was ready for more the next morning even after he was compensated. Not going to get into the play by play, but damn... I'm a bit jealous! :)

 

It's too bad Prague continues to go downhill. I never went during the "good old days" - my first visit was around 2007 or so. But I've been 4 times now and each trip is definitely less exciting than the previous. It's been 2 years now since my last trip over and I suspect it may be another few years before I go again. Just seems like Montreal and Fort Lauderdale cover the bases for half the cost.

I am booking Prague in May.

 

I finally made the decision to go in May. We will be gone for a week and I am thinking of doing a 2 night stopover in Vienna. Is Vienna worth it? I am reading the posts and would really like a guide the first day in Prague. I may contact the one guide posted in this forum. I would love any last minute advice on Prague and Vienna. I wish I could have gone during the peak escort, and club scene a few years ago.

Rick - I went to Prague in both winter and spring some years back.

 

I hired the guide Tomas from this site http://prague.gayguide.net/Gay_Guide/Guided_Tours/

 

He was delightful, excellent English and very easy on the eyes. He gave me an excellent tour, walking, public transport - knowledgeable, funny, and great company. He also is great for info on the gay scene. The other guide, Antonio is also fun.

I am off to Prague tomorrow. Any last minute recommendations. Gay Romeo seems to be the best place by far to find the guys.

 

For the benefit of future travelers to Prague who have similar interests as you, I do hope that you'll write about your experiences once you return to your home base!
