If going to the casino to gamble or to have have dinner doesn't appeal to you, then perhaps the summerlounge - which is open during the summer months will do. There is outdoor seating on comfortable sofas and chairs as well as bar-type stools and drinks are reasonably priced. The cocktails were pleasant and well mixed, and it is also possible to get beer or wine as well as non-alcoholic drinks.
Dress Code: smart casual - no official dress code...
The casino is Baden is a spectacular place - possibly the most stylish casino in Baden in terms of its décor, having last been refitted about 6 years ago after extensive renovation works. As with all Austria Casinos casinos it is a well-appointed and generally well frequented casino with a wide range of games to play.
There are also dining options, and assorted promotions on a regular basis. Entrance is, as per all Austrian casinos, EUR 21 - for which price you receive EUR 25 of chips (they cannot be exchanged for cash). You will require your passport as a foreigner to get in. There is a large bar and restaurant area, and there are also caberet performances on the 2nd floor.
I quite enjoy just watching people play - from the pinstickers to the little old ladies with their elaborate systems - I do not use a system and usually come out up on the roulette wheel to the extent that my drinks bill and admission is covered - the best way to do any casino trip. There are roulette tables starting with EUR 2 chips (in Vienna you will spend EUR 5 per chip minimum), black jack and craps, a wheel of fortune game.
It is open daily (except 24th December) from 3pm, with the fruit machines section opening at 1pm.
Dress Code: Men require a collared shirt and a jacket - jackets are available for a EUR 40 cash deposit at the reception. No trainers. Ladies have less of a dress code. There is no dress code for the fruit machines section
When you go to Baden, staying for one ore more nights, don't miss it.
For following reasons...
-) very nice and family-like ambient
-) moderate prices for drinks
(compared with usual prices in viennese clubs and bars)
-) a very special and delicious toast
(Tipp: order the HOT version ;o) )
The Antik is declared as a nightclub (open from 9pm till 4am). But there are no dancing and stripping girls. The club has the size of a bigger living room and the volume of the music is at an comfortably level. So it's well suitable for chatting with your friends.
The whole club is designed in an antik theme. The airbrushes on the walls are made by the well known airbrush artist "Knut Tiroch".
Most people uses the Antik as an meeting point before and/or after other nightlife adventures. For example a visit to Baden's Casino.
Even Brigitte Nielsen was seen in the club. Believe me, I was there. ;o)
Dress Code: There is no special dress code.
But sweated and smelly shirts (especially netshirts) and military uniforms won't be seen there.
That sounds funny. But the owner of the bar had already problems with drunken soldiers from the near situated military facility.
Play in Casino Baden. It was ATS 500 (approximately $30) as the cheapest entrance fee with some chips included and a drink (I think...)
Dress Code: All man are supposed to wear siuts and ties. You can also rent them there, but it's a little bit expensive.
