(Un)dress To Impress

(Un)dress To Impress

For retro-themed ambiance, Vienna has few rivals, being somewhat Vintage itself: elegantly decrepit fin-de-siècle decadence still saturates the very walls of the manifold venues presenting themselves. One of them is the Volkstheater’s Rote Bar, home of the burlesque carnival Cirque Rouge, a celebration of vaudeville and cabaret culture taking place every few months. Setting it apart is its dedication to recreating a first-half […]

Mojito Coast

Mojito Coast

Nestled in a side street just off Kärtnerstraße, the Cuban dance bar El Floridita is an underground haven of alegria y pasión tropical (joy and tropical passion, the motto of its Saturday night dance club), a cavernous, peach-coloured dance hall with long, well stocked bars and an excellent humidor welcoming Vienna’s pan-Latino community and indigenous […]

Into the Great Velvet Yonder

Into the Great Velvet Yonder

To the untrained eye, Tanzcafé Jenseits looks like just another gentlemen’s club, gone bust when the skin trade moved further out of town. Nestled in a side street, just off Mariahilfer Straße, the dusty drapes and black metal door keep prying eyes out and noise in. During business hours, the only indication that anything is […]

Wasted Youth

Wasted Youth

“Waste your youth” (dj, ) is the fitting motto of this monthly tongue-in-cheek event, dedicated to new wave music and its German-language cousin, Neue Deutsche Welle. Conceived as a deliberately cheesy answer to the up-and-coming rave scene in the ‘90s, Iceberg remains both an ironic and defiant statement, combatting mass market beats with synthesizer-fuelled pop. […]

Sunset at MQ

Sunset at MQ

The sun has just set and your Schnitzel and Sommer Spritzer are settling in, revitalising the sparkle in your eyes after a long day, pulling up the corners of your mouth. Now it’s time to move again, scintillate the senses. Time to dance. Time for the MuseumsQuartier. The MQ is not just master paintings and […]

Summerstage

Summerstage

It could be said about the Viennese that the one thing they enjoy more than wining and dining with pleasant company would be doing the same outdoors. Even in the dead of winter, they seem to love standing around in the cold, with nothing save a warm mug of something strong. Now, at last, winter is […]

Ride the Pony

Ride the Pony

You’re at a club. Over the din you hear the first riff of that tune from way back when, that cheesy, heavy-rotation song from your teens. But hearing it now makes your heart beat faster. You just can’t keep your feet still… Sound familiar? The DJs at Pony Club understand. Meet Katarina Cherabon, a freelance […]

Dances with Wolf Whistles

Dances with  Wolf Whistles

It’s Sunday night at Vienna’s Café Leopold and something’s askew. It’s not the premises: It’s the same stark black and white interior and distinctive clear plastic chandeliers, lights dimmed so low they bathe the entire establishment in a pleasantly murky amber, to make anyone look good, even without multiple weiße Spritzer. And it’s not the […]

Brothel Turned Bar

Brothel Turned Bar

As the world’s oldest profession moves steadily towards Vienna’s city limits, a few of the older downtown establishments have been converted to bars or venues, like Morrison Club off the Naschmarkt, or the Arena Bar on Margaretenstraße. Another former house of (not so) ill repute in Vienna’s 6th has followed suit and now caters to […]
