When you’re in one of the spookiest cities in the world — Prague — you’ve got to check out the underground Goth culture. And boy, was it ever hardcore.

On Day 2, we descended into the lair of Dracula Clothing, purveyors of dark, Victorian and Steampunk couture. The owners, Truls and Ida, are from Norway but established their showroom in Prague.

We played dress-up. I fell in love the waist-cinching octopus corset. Dracula Clothing generously gave it to me, along with an octopus ring and kitty t-shirt!

Sara, the always-smiling social media manager at Go With Oh, joined us on our Prague travels. She tried on a top hat with goggles, and got promptly bitten.

It’s not just the licorice-y taste of absinthe that draws me. I’m fascinated by the Belle Epoque / fin de siècle artist culture that surrounds the drink. No wonder it’s favored by Goths worldwide.

I’ve tried homemade absinthe jelly before, but never ice cream. A real treat; strongly flavored. Kat ordered the absinthe mojito and it’s her new favorite drink.

A wall of absinthe — I’ve never seen so many varieties. Upstairs, there was hallucinogenic art on display.

That evening, we cabbed to the obscure MayDay Club for a Goth event. It was a truly underground experience: no tourist would ever wind up here. Dracula Clothing and other stores sold accessories, surrounded by stone walls painted with flaming, bloody skulls.

Goth fashion and culture caught on relatively recently in Prague. The scene has a 1990s feel (long metal hair, fishnet armbands) as if it’s still getting its legs.

However, the Czechs are rocking it. The crowd headbanged to this progressive metal band, made up of surprisingly talented musicians. (There will be video footage for you to see and hear.)

Legal age? What’s that? At this Goth club, quite a few guests were on the young side…

Remarkable that no matter where you go, and how far underground you wander, you’ll find young people who love Japan.

I still can’t believe I had the chance to experience Prague’s burgeoning Goth scene for myself. Thank you Go With Oh! I hope you’ll keep their apartment rentals in mind if you’re traveling to Europe. Prices are great, and it’s a welcome change from a hotel.

     Those are some lovely pocket watches.

    I don’t drink so out of instinct, I’d probably say “no” to absinthe ice cream.  I would be up for goth clubbing in Europe though.  That sounds like a fun adventure.

      The ice cream was very strong and alcoholic… you’d love the clubs in Berlin. Will post coverage soon – amazing stuff!
