We stumbled upon this place after dinner and looking for something to do. We were late so saw only the second half of the show. The place was packed and standing room only, but it was worth it. Never heard such modern jazz like this, but we all enjoyed it.

Excellent evening. Music was amazing. Very good value. It's worth booking a table. Gets very hot but great atmosphere.

Sound system are great. Customer service is good although the staff could be a bit busy. Good atmosphere, a great place to just unwind with few beers and live music.

Highly recommend if you're looking for live music in Vienna. Awesome venue! The band spoke English here and there which was helpful. Some Tips: Cash only! As a group, we were pooling our cash together to make sure we could order a few rounds of drinks for the night. Our waiter said the closest ATM was a 15 min walk... More

We headed over after having viewed the online schedule but it was a Student dramatic presentation instead of Jazz. We thought it was student jazz but no, so not. Double check the schedule before going.

This is my secobd time, the place is great! I saw an excellent jazz performance, the place was not full and plenty of place to sit. Price was reasonable 20 euros and the beer was great Weissbeer half a litter for 4.50 euros. Staff was extremely friendly. Excellent ambient atmosphere, go for it!

We went to listen to Ed Motta and his band on the first day of our arrival.Though we were really tired, the atmosphere was so lovely that we couldn't just sit at the table and were dancing and singing the whole evening! Ed Motta entertained the audience with his sense of humor and amazing vocal skills. What a great night... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
