Petr Beneš Quartet
The jazzboat trip lasts 2.5 hours, leaving from pier No. 2 under the Cechuv Bridge and coming to the same place at the end. The boat will cruise through the historical center of Prague but also will go through the lock and take you to the suburbs of the city to see old industrial areas, old riverports and hidden places at night. During the trip you can enjoy jazz concert and dinner.
HOW TO FIND THE JAZZBOAT?
Jazzboat Kotva leaves from gate 2 of the major boat port of Prague: Evropska vodni doprava under the Cechuv Bridge (5 minutes from the Old Town Square). Print out the Google map! By metro – nearest stop is STAROMESTSKA, line A, by tram – Pravnicka fakulta stop of No. 17, by taxi – they all know.
WHAT ABOUT THE BOATTRIP?
Lasts 2.5 hours, you see the historical centre of Prague, then you go through the lock and see a little bit of Prague surroundings. There is heavy traffic on the river, the trip has no fixed schedule, however, comparing to other boattrips this one is the most complex.
IS THE RESTAURANT OK?
Of course we say yes! But seriously, the space and time on the boat is limited, however, after changing the management last year the jazzboat restaurant now is said to be the best of all boats on the river: first, it is the only boat offering a la carte menu served at your table. Second, it is a small family run bussines with a personal touch and friendly staff. Last but not least, ingredients are fresh and the food great.
I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE JAZZ CONCERT?
Don't worry. We have good quality professional jazz musicians. It is always full band – trio, quartet, sometimes even quintet. Forget about one keyboard-man show! We don't put difficult contemporary jazz, there is mainly jazz standards, some latin jazz and blues. Jazz specialists will not be dissapointed because of high quality of the musicians, and those untouched by jazz will surely enjoy pleasant music and atmosphere.
We play three music sets with two breaks of total time 2.5 hours during the entire trip.
