Czechs like to disco disco - soviet style

I love the sign, above, from New Town, Prague's city centre (click to view in detail).

The three pics below are from that brutal piece of architecture that is the Hotel Thermal (that, on its website, does a great job of hiding its hideous design from the world - there are no pictures anywhere of the exterior. I pity the poor tourists who book online)... Downstairs is the "truly unique basement disco Peklo ('Hell')". Dear God. In Soviet Russia, disco dances to YOU”. If you decide to dance here, it will seriously be like the scene in The Shining where ghosts idle the night away in the hotel's bar. Except the walls will be red, the lights sickly, and you will never, ever leave.
