Your child is about to celebrate his or her birthday, and you want to organize something more than cake, sweets and games. Check out the options below for different ideas for birthday party venues in Prague.
BIRTHDAY PARTY VENUES
Hard Rock Café isn’t only for adults. The rock’n’roll themed restaurant chain also provides all you need for the junior music fan in your household. When you book with Hard Rock Café, the birthday boy or girl gets a complimentary hot fudge sundae as well as a special gift. Meals for the party guests can be organized either as a group or they can choose from kids’ menus. HRC can also help with the organization of other entertainment for the party such as clowns, stilt walkers, puppet shows, and – since this is Hard Rock Café – karaoke at an additional charge.
One typical image parents have of kids’ birthdays is children running around wired on excess sugar. If that image fills you with horror, perhaps you should consider Beckiland an entertainment center filled with all manner of things for kids to run through, jump on, bounce on, climb on, and ride in. It’s exhausting just looking at the pictures, so it’s ideal for energetic kids. Beckiland offer three types of parties: turtle, parrot and tiger. They can also organize a clown for an extra 500 CZK.
If you want your kids to cool off while they’re having fun, a birthday at Aqua Palace in Prague could be for you. They have a choice of four kids’ menus ranging in price from 135 CZK to 255 CZK. They can organize the cakes as well, decorating it as you wish. For information and bookings, contact the email address at the first link.
Maybe your child and his/her friends are creative types. Or you’re just looking for a quieter alternative. In either case, maybe you should consider the community arts space Muddum. Birthday parties at Muddum give kids a chance to make things from clay or paper puppets. Parties can be themed, choosing from fairy princess, Star Wars, dinosaurs or whatever your kid’s imagination conjures up. Muddum also has invitations. For further information, or to book, contact them.
Some of you might be looking for a simple, old-fashioned party with food, face painting, and games. Lefík offers just that. Their party plan seems especially suited for younger kids from 3 to 6. Price and activities can be found here by opening the PDF linked to the red text at the top of the page. While the website is not in English, the representatives there do speak English. One requirement is that you have to book three weeks in advance.
What’s a party without cake? The obvious place to get cake is in a cafe like Kafé Kakao. For 800 CZK you can hire out the whole cafe space. For an additional charge, they’ll organize (apart from the birthday cake) a large range of sweets as well as entertainment including workshops, magicians, puppet shows and more. And because it’s a café, it gives parents a chance to relax. You might even want to invite some of your own friends.
Koala Cafe is another family entertainment center which doesn’t forget the parents. The center is available for birthdays, though one adult is required to supervise for every 5 kids. However, if you are roped in to supervising, at least you can relax afterwards with a beer or a glass of wine.
Lastly, you can always organize a party with McDonald’s (in Czech). The party is for children no younger than 5 and the restaurant will organize the cake.
It’s not necessary to go somewhere. You can have the party at home. Even so, you might want to have someone organize it for you.
