Mira Vales is well known amongst the Prague party scene for his popular queer party Pioneer. With this success, Mira recently tried out a new party known as Spritz and LUI paid a visit to take some photos and check out what was new and different this time round.
 
 
Located on Karlovo náměstí, Cafe Neustadt seemed like the perfect venue for such a party. Nestled in the Nové Město town hall and sporting an impressive terrace filled with trendy socialites, as well as a classy interior including a bar and sizeable dance floor. The drinks were also reasonably priced and quite plentiful. Everything looked quite new and polished, but held almost no pretention whatsoever. Perhaps, a good reflection of what Spritz is all about.
 
 
Like Pioneer, the aim of Spritz was to increase awareness and interest in the growing sub-cultures of queers and their lovely friends, focusing mainly on style and music. Are you tired of hearing Kylie and the other cliché songs of your standard gay club? The aim of Spritz was to trade Pioneer's electro beats for some absolutely fabulous pop tracks. As what some people may refer to as "guilty pleasures", Mira refers to as "comfort food" - like macaroni and cheese. Mira's macaroni and cheese is classic pop music, not the regurgitated modern pop that is played day in and day out in other clubs. The night boasted a number of DJs including, Marian da Niel aka. Attitudes and HOLY aka. Spritz Boys all spinning classic tracks by Depeche Mode, Diana Ross and New Order to name a few. The positive vibes and lovely people also meant that there was no shortage of dancing.
 
 
Spritz also had no shortage of expats. Being an expat myself, it's always refreshing to see an international crowd to mix with. However, Mira would also like to encourage other more marginalised groups of foreigners in Prague, for example the Vietnamese. Definitely something to look forward to in the future. For those yet to experience an experience as unique as these parties, the next Pioneer will be held in the usual location of Cafe V Lese on November 22, read more on Facebook here. Mira is also excited to collaborate on the fashion front with the Vogue the line fashion party coming up in December. Watch this space for details.
