    Kix Bar: Kix Bar

    by antistar Updated May 26, 2013

    A very relaxed and super cool bar near the Stefansdom. High walls, minimalist decor, great cocktails, relaxed clientele and chilled out music. It was, like many bars in Germany and Austria, very smoky, but we found a place around the corner which cut most of that off. If you want a place to drink before hitting the clubs, you won't go far wrong here.

    Dress Code: Smart casual.

    Irish Pub Flanagans

    VT meeting at Flanagans
    1 more image

    Flanagans is a centrally located Irish Pub in Vienna. It was opened in 1996 and voted the best Irish Bar in Europe for 2004. They have Irish, Austrian and other international beers on tap.

    Apart from that a large selection of traditional pub food is on offer. Prices are probably a bit higher than in other pubs in that area, but still reasonable. Due to its many international guests, Flanagans is a perfect place for a VT meeting. I went here with VT member bugulma from Russia.

    Not the best

    by littlebush Updated Jan 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rathaus

    The problem with arriving in a new city and youre only stopping for one night, its hard to hit the best nightspots when you dont know where youre going.

    In 2002, We went to what was meant to be the best area but thought it was pretty crap. Found an Ozzy bar, which was dead so we just headed back to Wombats hostel and got hammered!

    In 2012, we found a tiny little cozy cool bar with a friendly ish owner who seemed to know all of the locals coming in - it was called Pfiff and Co, just a 5min walk from Stepehnsplatz. We had a bottle of wine for 19.50 euros.

    Siebensternbraeu: famous brewery in Vienna has good Austrian kitchen

    by Penelope4 Written Oct 8, 2011

    Open from 10 am till midnight 7 days a week. Locals and tourists like this place a lot so if you are coming with a lot of friends and you don't want to take chances, better make a reservation.

    Siebensternbraeu uses perhaps best water in the world, it does not use conservative, applies methods to preserve the nutrients of the fine ingredients it uses.

    My friends and I had a great time, the beer and Austrian dishes were great.

    The Website is also available in English. You will see what Siebensternbraeu has to offer to beer-loving people :D

    Dress Code: Casual.

  • discos,pubs & Restaurants: Crossfields - Australian Pub

    by MishyM Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well I gave into temptation (more than once) and went into this Australian pub with some friends - and it was really fun!

    Basically it is like most other Aussie pubs you will find around the world - lots of wood, lots of Aussie signs (especially the 'watch out for the Kangaroo' ones), Fosters of course (and VB, Crown etc) and last but not least 'Australian' food most Aussies haven't eaten... like Crocodile steaks and Kangaroo burgers. But they also have very nice normal food as well, including vegemite toast. (yay) Check out their website below for a full menu, including drinks.

    But! It is a really fun and friendly place, the bar staff are very (well they were when I was there) nice, plus I met lots of Austrians there, so you don't need to worry about not meeting locals. It seems to also be a good place to meet Aussie expats.

    It is nice and cosy inside, with a great downstairs cellar area (I think they call it the opal mine ...) and in winter they even sell gluwein.

    They even have trivia nights once a week, with the questions in English and German.

    Basically this is a cute and fun place to go, especially if you are Aussie and a bit homesick!

    Opening hours
    Every day from 10 am to 1 am, Friday and Saturday to 2 am

    Dress Code: No dress code as far as I could see

    Having an evening drink at the summer stage

    Great outdoor/indoor trendy venue which seats up to 700 people looking over the Danube canal. There are different events performed throughout the summer as well as cocktails, Austrian wine, and food from Asia or Mexico.
    You can also find Vienna's first "dog bar" here with free drinks and snacks on offer from 5pm-9pm.
    Gets very busy at weekends so turn up early or reserve in advance. Located at Rossauer Lände U4. The Summer Stage is open from May to September, Mo-Sa 5pm-1am; Sun from 2pm. Tel: + 43 1 315 52 02.
    On the path down to the Summer Stage, check out the "Sculpture Garden" from 4 June where you can find works by young, aspiring artists (www.igbildendekunst.at.)

    SALSA

    by mel_bee Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I like to have a bit of a dance and have been to a few salsa clubs in Vienna. If you fancing a bit of a whirl, then why not try:

    Floridita (in 1st district, Johannesgasse not far from the Opera take the street off Kärtnerstrasse with the McDonald's on it)

    Nueva Vista (as above but keep walking down the street.)

    Havanna (also near the opera on the street which has the entrance to the Ringstrassen Galerien shopping centre), gets very busy at weekends.

    AUSTRIAN PUBS AND BARS

    The Bermuda Br��u in the Bermuda Triangle

    Try out any pubs in the Bermuda Triangle for a hectic night out! (1st, U1/4 - Schwedenplatz, head towards Judengasse) - Bermuda Bräu (with cellar) is great for partying and meeting people, Krah, Krah is more traditional; Kaktus is full of young people (makes me feel old sometimes) with loud music and the occasional go-go dancers, Roter Engel plays a mix of music and sometimes has live bands, Relax does cheap vodka. I also like the Salzamt for a weekend coffee and Ma Pitom for food.
    In Bäckerstrasse, not far from Schwedenplatz is the Kaffee Alt Wien which is more of a smoky studenty bar than a café, round the corner from there is Bane's bar which never seems to close.
    Another great area for bars is the Spittelberg area in the 7th district- (U2/3 Volkstheater) try the Siebensternbräu, Plützerbräu and if you are feeling in need of something to eat with your beer try out Centimeter II where you can order breads by the centimetre. I love the spicy one!!!
    For a funky place try Bar Italia (go to the room downstairs!)
    Further out of town the brewery Fischerbräu (near U6 Nussdorferstrasse take the 38 tram one more stop north) its a great place with a beer garden in the summer and jazz on Sunday mornings.
    In the summer head for the extremely busy and famous Schweizerhaus in the Prater Park.

  • The Four Bells and Floyds: Irish pub with night club downstairs

    There is also a pub quiz (in English) on mondays and a club/lounge downstairs from thurs - sat.

    Roo Bar: Fun Australian bar

    by morgenhund Written May 3, 2009

    The Roo Bar has been open nearly a year and is located just behind two of the big five star hotels. Despite being in the 1st district, by dint of being slightly tucked away it is not as swamped as other pubs. The atmosphere is pleasant - the crowd are the young and youngish (20s and early 30s) and they show a lot of live sport (Champions League, Rugby, Cricket, Golf). Downstairs there is a no smoking cellar with a separate bar - and they often have live music down there, a pub quiz and also private events. It holds about 50-60 and there is also a beamer and screen on the wall there.

    They have Stiegl on tap and also have a good selection of premium bottled Australian beers. Food at the moment is relatively limited, although will doubtless increase in range before too long. There are often parties and informal get togethers and it is a pleasant place to go out - although girls might find a queue for the lady's restroom.

    Dress Code: Come as you are!

    Strasserbräu: Away from the masses

    by morgenhund Written Oct 15, 2007

    The Strasserbräu is a typical beer pub with food (Bier-Beisl) and is opposite the Meidling Hauptstrasse U4 station, so can be a good place to have a couple of beers before heading onto the U4 nightclub. It is a simple no frills place with a quiet beer garden (Schanigarten) to the back of the place - which is pleasant to sit in in summer. It serves typical Viennese staples like potato pancakes, Wiener Schnitzel and salads and as well as assorted beers there is also a selection of wines. The place is down-to-earth but a good place for a pitstop before a long night in U4. It is open on weekdays - closing at midnight on Mondays-Wednesdays and 1 am on Thursday and Fridays, but is shut all weekend.

    located by Museumquartier in the center ,"Centimeter" is a great pub ,that reminds me of most of the pubs I'm used to from the Alps . They even play those apres-ski hits that I know. Food is good aswell - if you want to have a beer it's the place to go.
    Looking at the website ,I discovered that this is a chain of pubs through Vienna and I bet every other is as good as the one I visited. Recommended!!!

    1516 Brewing Company: Good beer, great atmosphere

    by BorneoGrrl Updated Mar 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1516 Brewing Company, Vienna

    I'm not normally a beer drinker but when in Europe, I do partake in this golden drink because it simply tastes great here. One place I would go to for a night out is 1516 Brewing Company located in Vienna's first district (close to where its at).

    This place brews their own beer, and also have other drinks available. The menu also includes the staple pub food plus local dishes e.g wiener schnitzel. The service is good and the staff are friendly & speak English so you won't have any problem when you order. This a place for great atmosphere, drinks and food so try not to give this place a miss when you're Vienna

    Dress Code: I don't think there is a strict dress code, T-shirts & jeans are OK
