    Murinsel: Murinsel - the amphitheatre & the cafe

    by globetrott Updated May 11, 2006

    Murinsel - the amphitheatre & the cafe
    3 more images

    Murinsel ( the artificial island in the river Mur) became a really interesting place and it is beautifully lighted almost all night. At least at the side, where you enter it from Franz-Josephs-Kai you may take a lift in order to get down to the island and a wide path will take you to the amphitheatre that may be used for private performances or simply in order to sit down and enjoy the night. Another great place to spend the evening is the cafe of Musinsel - read more about the cafe of Mur-Insel in in my Restaurant-tip !

    Dress Code: There is NO special dress-code for Murinsel, come as you are, nobody will care about it !!

    The Mausoleum & Katharinenkirche: take a walk - all places of interest are lighted !

    The Mausoleum & Katharinenkirche
    4 more images

    Take a walk at night through the city of Graz and you will see, that most of the places of interest are perfectely lighted, and some of them look even better or at least more romantic during the night.
    I made a picture-combination with the tomb-stone of Kaiser Ferdinand III, who is burried inside the Mausoleum.
    The Mausoleum is a museum today, and I may highly recommend to see its interior during the day !!

    Dress Code: There is almost NO place in Graz, that would require formal dresses !

    Dom im Berg: The light in the middle of the Tunnel

    Can you see the light? :)

    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... :)

    Island in the Mur: Futuristic night out

    by aramat Updated Oct 9, 2003

    Island in the Mur

    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.

    Grazer Opernhaus: An evening at the opera

    Graz is Austria`s second largest city and has it`s second large opera house. The building seems to be baroque style, but actually it dates from the end of the 19th century. Currently you can see for example the Nutcracker, Rigoletto, Carmen or Cole Porter`s Anything goes (which was a solid performance, a bit lenghty though). Tickets are cheaper than what you have to pay for an evening at Vienna opera. A ball takes place there once a year- the "Opernredoute". In case you are just interested in the building- for a fee of about EUR 3,5 you can participate in a guided tour.

    Dress Code: Like everywhere dressing up in an elegant way is part of an evening at the opera- though you can always see someone wearing jeans

    Glockl Brau: Drinking....

    Ruth in Glockl Brau

    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.

    Vinothek Klapotetz
    1 more image

    We were wandering around the old town and whilst warlking around one of the many courtyards of Graz, we stumbled upon this charming little wine bar.
    It was obviously a very popular spot amongs the locals, that enjoy their favourite glass of wine here.

    Its got lots of wine on the shelves, so if you want, you can purchase a bottle to take home with you if you wanted.
    They also offered some snacks in the form of olives, breads etc, a real charming place to enjoy a few drinks in the warmth away from the cold.

    Flann O'Brien: For a pint of Variety

    Flann O'Brien
    1 more image

    Although I dont like going in to Irish bars in other countries, as it kinda of defeats the object of travelling, this time it was necessary. It was very very cold outside and we had been walking all day long and needed a sit down, and this was the only place we could find.
    I must admit that I did have a good time Flann O'Brien's as they stocked a wide range of beers at very very good prices, so needless to say, we stayed there for the night, and consumed several pints of cheap beer.
    We did also have some food in there, which was very tasty and came in large portions, so if you have been longing for a pint of your home brew, or even a local brew, head there for a drink, its a cool joint.

    Dress Code: No dresscode.

    ERASMUS Party

    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.

  • Kultus/ Kulturhauskeller: Younger Crowd For After Bars

    by PhilC2 Updated Dec 21, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is opposite the 3 Monkeys and costs 2 euros to get in. Its a lot larger than the 3 monkeys and has a bigger dance floor, which caters to the younger crowd. I liked this place a lot and there are various bars dotted around. Avoid the small one at the end, which has 1 older gentlman with black hair who seems to have a bit of chip on his shoulder. Its away from the main centre and can only be reached by taxi at night. The drivers know where it is. A fast food restaurant is at the end of the road, which offers lovely food after loads of lagerbeers. Make sure you withdraw money prior to getting a taxi here as I had to walk ages from here to find a cashpoint and wouldn't be able to start on telling where it is!

    Dress Code: Sorry I can't remember.

  • Stern Bar: Lively Drink In The Centre

    by PhilC2 Updated Dec 21, 2006

    This was my favourite place to go in the centre after having a meal and I came to this bar on both my visits to Graz. Whilst there are a few windows either side of the entrance, you enter downwards into a cosy cellar environment. However, the bar is popular with students so can be very lively. There was a DJ playing in the rear room, before the toilets, every time I went there. There is another more intimate room at the side, with seating, and I believe that food is served here at certain times. They also do a good line in cocktails and the bar staff are very friendly. I found the general atmosphere to be very friendy here and felt very relaxed. Enjoyed it everytime. Its opposite the Continuum Bar.

  • Continuum: Lively Drink In The Centre

    by PhilC2 Updated Dec 21, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place can be found opposite the Stern Bar. Its another lively bar that is popular with students. I went here a couple of times on both my stays here but it can be very hard to find a seat here, even though the its a mostly seated affair with lots around. The place has a warm but modern & contemporary feel, with a DJ normally present at night. I have to say though that due to the lack of seating this wasn't my favourite bar, however its ok for 1 before moving on.

  • pharmacy bar: coolest bar in town

    by polts Updated Jan 3, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    pharmacy bar has been open for just over a year. (in october 2005 i think?)
    we go there on a regular basis. the cocktails are fantastic, alot of which are pharmacy self creations. i like the spicy chocolate martini, it is excellent.
    the atmosphere is really cool and the people are really goodlooking.
    they have fresh oysters every day, which can be combined with a guinness.
    they also have very tasty finger food, unsual and amazing things that you wont find anywhere else.
    the music they play comes from london and is not at all commercial.
    one of the owners comes from england.
    they have a really cute beer garden in summer.

    Royal English Cinema: English language cinema

    by orlikins Written Nov 26, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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. :)

    Bermudadreieck: Drinking area

    by Imbi Written Dec 22, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
