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 […]

Night Life Face Lift

Night Life Face Lift

It’s a late Saturday night as Vienna commuters descend into the Künstlerhauspassage at Karlsplatz to find themselves surrounded by flamboyant revellers. They are on their way to Rhinoplasty, one of the city’s least-secret parties. A quartet of bearded men dressed as Valkyries, with neon braids, hold court in front of Club-U – Top-40 hits and […]

Tenting at the WienerWiesn

Tenting at the WienerWiesn

What better way to ring in the autumn season then by downing frothy beer in massive tumblers, and frolicking to embarrassing music in a tent filled with bosomy dirndls and well-worn Lederhosen?  While the tradition is originally Bavarian, Vienna has adopted their own version of the Oktoberfest, or as the Bavarian natives call it, die […]

Let’s Go There Instead

Let’s Go There Instead

Snippets of German, English, and French float in between bouts of hearty laughter where a small group of Malian refugees gather around wooden tables. Under a massive clock hanging from the courtyard wall, women chatter enthusiastically in Spanish. The Statt-Beisl in the WUK caters easily to the motley ebb and flow of locals: This is […]

After Dark: Chaya Fuera

There has been something missing in Vienna’s live music scene. When his new club Chaya Fuera opened on 23 Mar., Stephan Ebner told the press “I like going out all over the world, but I was never really convinced by Vienna.” In the middle of Spittelberg on the unpresuming Kandlgasse, this new club promises to […]
