Fuchs2 Club

Architect: Josef Fuchs

Year of completion: 1932

The combination of functionalist architecture, ice hockey, and a music club? It was achieved in Prague on Štvanice Island. We’re talking about Fuchs Café and the now non-existent winter stadium with an artificial ice rink. It was here in 1947 that the Czechoslovak ice hockey team won their first World Championship. The stadium’s glory, however, began to fade after its roof was added in 1956. The last championship took place here three years later, and afterward, the stadium served only for public ice skating. Today, only the former café can reminisce about its great fame, as the renowned stadium was demolished in 2011 due to its deteriorating condition. A similar fate could have befallen the café if it weren’t for the enthusiasm of several Prague collectives who were not indifferent to the fate of this functionalist building from the 1930s. The current establishment, Fuchs2 club, has preserved the character of previous venues from the early 1980s when the building became a disco. Some may be surprised by its unique atmosphere, accompanied by an interesting music program. It is guaranteed to delight fans of electronic and alternative music, which Fuchs2 focuses on.
