New Weilers: Judenburg by night
Nightlife in Judenburg is exciting if you are under 18. After finishing school many people move to Graz or Vienna to study or to work. However, New Weiler`s opened about 2 years ago and replaced the traditional Peter Weiler`s bar. It is in the centre of Judenburg. Usually it is crowded the nights before holidays, like the 23rd of December or Good Friday, because many people come back to Judenburg to see their families and go out. The bar is absolutely ok to have a beer or two. Occasionally people start dancing spontaneously or you can watch them killing time by driving nails into a tree trunk. At least an immersion into Austrian countrylife is guaranteed.
Dress Code: completely informal
Weiler's Bar: A fine little drinking hole
I used to pop in here for a coffee or two during the day, and by night it was my favourite haunt in Judenburg - the drinks were good, prices very reasonable and it was not as crowded with my students as other places, so made a welcome retreat. Nights in Weiler were always happy ones - I used to regularly stagger home in the small hours after having quaffed a fair few beers.
They used to having fancy dress parties for Fasching - I have blurred memories of one such event. It was the real nightspot for the 20-25 crowd (there were very few in Judenburg)
Dress Code: Smart casual.
Paul's Café / Die Bar: One of those surreal moments
Paul's café was a favourite spot with teenagers (in particular the one's I used to teach!) that rather surreally had an entrance to a night club through the men's wash room - after about the tenth visit I did discover that the nightclub in the back could also be reached from the street - thus shattering the illusion. The music was pretty middle-of-the-road - the clientele young (I felt old at 20-21)
