This little bar was just down the road from where we were staying and we had a delightful early evening drinks. Great service and drink menu. Wish we had found it sooner.

Stopped at this bar on the way out for dinner. We had two cocktails each. One alcoholic and one non. The service was very good and the cocktails great. They have a happy our from 5 each afternoon. But only on the non and some other drinks. Well worth a visit.

We found this place on our wanders back to our hotel. One of the best ambiences ever and the widest range of drinks I have ever seen in my life. Rare spirits and a bewildering choice of cocktails. We came here at happy hour and the drinks were reasonably priced. I have to say some of the cocktails are lethal.... More

This is a pleasant find for a late night or afternoon cocktail. We occupied the little bar off to the left when you enter. Laura greeted us very warmly, and one of the owners made me perhaps the best Manhattan cocktail I've had. The only downer is they have only a couple of beers to choose from, only one white... More

The place doesn't have much light which builds an intimate atmosphere where to have a couple of cocktails and a relaxed conversation. The three or so cocktails we had were good and the selection of drinks at the bar won't disappoint. It is not a cheap place, but cocktail places rarely are.

A small group of us recently visited this bar for drinks. The place was almost empty on the night we were there. The service was OK, but we would have ordered more drinks if the waitress had come to our table more often than she did. The drink list was very extensive although a little on the expensive side, especially... More

This bar is quite spacious and has seating arrangements on several floors, but the best places, in my opinion, are at the long counter-like table along the windows near the entrance - they combine the feel of sitting at the counter with privacy if desired. The music is nice - old pop and rock songs (not sure if it's a... 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.
