A very nice place where the have Live Music - Sunday for sure - I don´t know about the week - I will ask my friend.
We go dancing there once in a while because we just love Lain Music and Salsa...
Dress Code: nothing... just swing you hips
We stopped at a sports bar on Glockenspielplatz for a quick drink before dinner. There are plenty of nice cafes and bars on this square, in a good location in the centre of the old town. Try their house beer - Glockl Brau - same name as the bar and good value at 2.80 Euro a pint.
I've been to an ERASMUS Party organized every two weeks [as far as I know] where there's all kinds of music [mostly commercial], depending on visitors' wishes... It's a pretty cool place if you wanna hook up with some exchange students.
I like that place because there is a big space for dancing (compared to a lot of other places in Graz at least) and they have a nice variety of events and music - siehe website for that.
for example: Disco 74, Disco 2000, Sushi
Club, Club 2 (is there
The Kultus is the same as the Three Monkeys - a student club - it is just that it always seems that the people coming here are much younger then in the Three Monkeys.
But the music is nice in both of them and the entrance fee is not high so you can switch between both of them during the night.
I just went to the Buddha Bar yesterday for the first time and I really liked it. It has a nice ambiente and the cocktails are also very good.
So I can only recommend it to everyone. It is a little hard to find since it is kind of hidden - close to the Färberplatz.
Dress Code: ...we thought we might not get in with our sandals but when we were sitting inside we noticed that we all had more clothes on then buddha himself so why shouldn´t they let us in?
The "Three Monkeys" is my favourite club to go to when I want to dance, which I like a lot. But it is not a big discothek - it is a nice club with a small place to also dance if you want to.
There have Live Music every Sunday and Karaoke on Wednesday I guess.
And if it is not your place there are plenty of others around it - in the univiertel.
There is a tunnel under the Schlossberg leading you from Schlossbergplatz to the other end of the hill. We went there on a Saturday evening & there was a big party in Dom im Berg. There are always some (mostly techno) parties - I saw there were upcoming concerts by DJ Kicks, Massive Attack aso. A pretty crazy place to go out anyway... :)
This place is rediculous... It is crowded.. so crowded in fact if you would like to take a trip around the bar give yourself about 20 minutes. It is also real hot so dress appropriately. Saying that, it is a heckuva a lot of fun. Try the Mojito upstairs... supposed to be the best one in the region.
Dress Code: Anything goes
The Kulturhauskeller, known as "Kultus", is the bar, where most students of Graz go out. You can go there from Tuesday to Saturday. On weekends it is really crowded - I prefere to go there on Thursdays.
Dress Code: Wear what you want to - there is no dress code
The Island on the Mur is a cool place, particularly at night. When I was there, the light was purple and water was flowing down on the outside of the shell and inside the bar/restaurant was full of people. A large variety of drinks and international food are available (the tapas, nachos, etc, kind). It's fun sitting there, a very futuristic feeling.
The photo is by Harry Schiffer from http://www.graz03.at/, I didn't take my camera with me, because I didn't know where we were going.
Dress Code: Casual
Like Linz and Vienna, Graz has a narrow drinking area packed full of trendy bars, known as the Bermudadreieck (Bermuda Triangle). It's pretty dead in the daylight, but it bursts alive at night. Its streets are strewn with black gravel, apparently to prevent nasty accidents.
Figured Nightlife is the best place to put this tip.
The Royal is where you can watch all the latest Hollywood blockbusters in it's English original language, great value if you have a Graz university student card. It takes about 3-4 months for a US film to reach Germany & Austria so you'll probably know what happens in the film by the time it arrives, but its better than dubbing. :)
Dress Code: n/a
Surprise surprise, the Irish pubs were the cool and groovy places to be seen in in Graz. :)
Peggy Sue - an American style bar and diner
During the semester, students can pick up dirt cheap opera tickets on Monday nights.
Graz is a student town, so I found it a bit 'dead' over the Easter holidays when everyone had gone home (and I was stuck writing my thesis!) It's very lively at the weekends - but you dont need me to tell you that!
Dress Code: You'll look fine as you are :) No need to dress up for the pub. :)
Nice bar in the 'Bermudadreieck'. That's direct in the old town of Graz. On Saturdays very many people inside, so there are sometimes allready too many people. There they play nice music. People are between 20 and 30 there.
Dress Code: no dress code
