After a night pub hopping the best kebaps in the city are at Troja. It's right along the river near the Kapuinchberg.
WHich after you get your kebap you can climb up the stairs and look out over the river to the Altstadt.
I recommend the kebap spicy, without lettuce and with cheese.
Fast, tasty, cheap and in a great location.
We visited this huge Monastery every day of our stay in Salzburg. Come hungry and browse many of the food stalls available for affordable eating. Unfortunately it was too cold on this visit to enjoy the outside beer garden which held many fun memories for me on my last visit. The inside is huge and has several rooms in which to enjoy your beer and food.
I had planned to attend a performance at this theatre, but in the end I was pretty exhausted that night when the (for me) interesting work was scheduled.
Their programme includes plays, musicals/operas and ballet/dance. They don't perform every night and the company is not *that* good as I heard. Not to mix up with the Festival weeks. Prices for tickets are quite reasonable.
The place to drink in Salzburg and soak the local culture is Augustiner Bräu run by Benetictine Monks where they serve light beer in huge clay mugs. You don't get served at your table so just follow the locals to pick up your krug then to the cashier where you pay for the beer and pick up you ticket. You then head for the guy with huge tapped barrel in front of him and he'll pour you a frothy beer. When you want another, go rinse out your mug in the water fountain and start again.
There are several beer halls to choose from all with a slighty different vibe, smoking or non-smoking but all were full of talking and laughter. Such a great atmosphere.
There are also several stalls selling cold meats, cheese and bread for when you get the munchies. The beer goes down a bit too easily though and I certainly paid for it the next day!!!
Dress Code: No dress code
Everyone had reccommended this place to me in Salzburg...Knowing that I am a beer lover! I had read sooo much about the place and was terrified that it wouldnt live up to its name!
It sooooooo did!!!!!!
Apparantley! I had a few too many I guess...can you have a few too many beers??!!
You enter the fabulous building and go down stairs, find the size mug that you would like, rinse it out, take it to the till and pay 5.40euro for the larger or 2.70 for the smaller mug, take the mug and receipt to the barrels and the guys there will pour your beer for you!!
Its such a cool place, like nowhere Ive ever been before! The atmosphere in the halls is electric, locals and tourists side by side on huge wooden tables sipping away at the tasty brew!!
DO NOT MISS IT!!!
Luna is located in a small courtyard just off of Griesgasse.
It seemed popular with the younger crowd, and was a really trendy little bar!
We drank many a pint of Edelweiss and ate Paninis here!
The guy working behind the bar was soooo friendly and really up for a good time...they has a CD player which the locals seemed to nip behind the bar to and put on their own music!!
So my night owls ...Here are the places for you :
The "Paletti" or "Stadtwerk Orange," the "Republic" are great clubs. If you're looking for a club atmosphere, fantastic drinks and dancing, "The Club" should be right up your alley. The "JEXX" across the street has the traditional beer and chicken wings setting on the ground floor and the Club Lounge on the first floor, where the big party takes off with electrifying music.
A selection of Austrian and international wines that are worth seeing and tasting can be found at Fridrichs. Exceptionally creative cuisine is served at the "Soho," an excellent restaurant with a fine selection of wines and a cozy bar. Its counterpart is the "Andi Hofer" just a few steps away, a sophisticated pub with traditional cuisine, friendly service and plenty of regular customers.
If you're up this way you shouldn't miss one of the Salzburg's cultural heavens. The "Rockhouse" in the Schallmooser Hauptstrasse is where the full spectrum ranging from jazz, rock, pop, folk, blues, metal, punk, funk, crossover to contemporary music and avant-garde is at home. "Der fidele Affe," is one of Salzburg's perennial favorites where guests dine on hearty Austrian dishes in a casual atmosphere.
At the end of the Priesterhausgasse you'll find two small but delightful brasseries named "Diva" and "Gordons Bistro," which should not be missed.
If you prefer to stay in the inner zone, you should head for the Giselakai. From Salzburg's senior nightclub, the "Chez Roland," "Daimlers" with a bar on the ground floor and outstanding restaurant on the first floor, the "Watzmann," the "Zebra," the "Max" to the "Felice", the offerings are abundant. If you work your way past the Mozart Footbridge heading upstream and your eardrums can still take a beating, a visit to the "Bazillus" on the waterfront with its al fresco dining and breathtaking view of the Old City and Fortress is a must.
I hope that you will find something for yourself. I found my place !
If the party atmosphere of an annual festival isn't for you, then you might just take an evening stroll through the beautiful Alstadt. I found that the streets were far less crowded and that the atmosphere was more magical at night. Fewer people means fewer digital cameras and cell phones and really allows you to get a sense of the history of this ancient part of the city.
The annual street party known as the Linzergasse Festival just happened to be taking place when I was in Salzburg. It takes place toward the end of June each year and brings out all kinds of people to listen to live music on the street called Linzergasse. All of the shops, bars and restaurants stay open very late and the streets are packed with people having a great time.
The Augustiner beerhall is definitely the best large beer hall I've been in. It actually forms part of the monastery of the Augustiner monks who brew the only beer served there, and it's the only religious establishment in Austria that still brews. The entrance is fairly inconspicuous, and even on entering you'll wonder if you're in the right place: you have to wander down a few flights of marble stairs to get to the beer complex. At the bottom of the stairs you're greeted with a row of four or five shops selling local foods, including a baker and a couple of butchers. You then enter the main drinking area - a series of airy, large, woodpanelled rooms with long wooden tables and high ceilings. Beer is cheap, and served in half or full litre steins; there's a self-service counter where the steins are stacked on shelves. You choose your stein, pay at the counter, then hand your receipt to the barman. They only serve the beer brewed on the premises, a typical and very nice Märzen beer. You can also pay a little extra to have a waiter serve you. The customers are extremely varied, spanning all ages from cradle to coffin-dodging - families are welcome. It's a very relaxed and extremely pleasant place to drink.
If something can go wrong, it will. Or something like that. This is a pub located along the mountain and between Getreidegasse and Augustiner Brau on Gst?ttengasse 33. Try the grilled cheese sandwich with ham, tomato and onion... they're famous for it. Dip it in the mayo and ketcup it comes with... AWESOME! The owners are from Ireland and don't speak much German, so this is a great place for Americans! Plus, the students from Salzburg College -- the local American college just down the street -- frequent this place, so you'll probably find a lot of english speakers.
A must. Just trust me. A must. The beer flows and the people drink and the laughs roll.
This is a monestary where the beer is brewed by monks (monks also make bread... you can view the cellar bread market by St. Peters cemetary where the small river (creek) comes down into down). Augustiner Brau has three or four large beer halls, resembling Hofbrauhaus in Munich.
The process: You walk in and pick a mug from the shelves (pick the size mug you want for the rest of the night) then there are little fountains of ice cold water near by where you should rinse your mug out quickly just to make sure it is clean. Then, you'll approach the cash register and pay for however many drinks you wish and receive a receipt. Take the receipt a couple steps to your right and show it to the guy at the kegs and he'll pour you your first, second or third beer, etc. Enjoy.
They have a couple places inside to purchase food at, but you are also allowed to bring your own food, so many Austrians bring picnic baskets full of food and just buy the beer. Try it.
The Flying Bulls and their new Hangar-7:

The Mayday Bar up above the restaurant entertains its guests with a special gimmick: the high-tech surface of the bar features interactive cartoon airplanes that run miniature aerobatic maneuvers around glasses. And even carry little messages from guest to guests.
The bar 360° (“Three-Sixty”) floats high above at the apex of Hangar-7, sitting just beneath the roof, guests enjoy an indescribable view into the space below and onto the aircraft of the Flying Bulls.
Interactive installations: Information, interaction, conversation –installations round out the Hangar-7 experience (CHECK THE TOILET!)
Hangar-7: 09:00 - 22:00
Mayday Bar: 18:00 - 03:00
Roses is a great bar on the main street next to the river where all the cool bars are. What makes this bar great is the music that the bartenders play. It's really fun with a few rock classics that everyone loves. The owner is very friendly, and if you go back more than twice, he remebers you. Get there a little earlier if you want to sit down, otherwise the bar is packed.
Dress Code: A little nicer. Slacks and a nice shirt. Don't have to go all out though.
The Nawi Fest (pronounced Nah-vi) is once a month every month, usually at the beginnig. It is held in the political science building of the University of Salzburg off of the Alpenstrasse. Take the 51 or the 95 bus from old town Salzburg, it's about 10 minutes away. Bus service stops at 11:30pm, but cabs are lined up outside the building to take you home up until 6am.
Dress Code: Very casual. Jeans and t-shirts okay.
