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 […]

365 The Fox House: Seedling Storefront

If you are in the arts scene, or you consider yourself a cultural revolutionary in Vienna, then you were at The Fox House opening on 1 March, the first night that qualified as Spring after two months of bitter cold. You were dressed to the nines and soaking up all that is stylish and inventive. […]

The Gate Crasher: My Very Own VIP

The Gate Crasher: My Very Own VIP

“Are you here for the VIP party?” asked the lady behind the Garderobe at Planter’s, a 1st District lounge bar, padded to perfection in brown leather and dark wood. Well, now I am, I thought to myself. “I’ll just join my friends inside.” I smiled. Once a gate crasher… A friend of mine had raved […]

Nobody’s Business: Peeling the Blue Banana

Nobody’s Business: Peeling the Blue Banana

When you’re moseying on home or up to no good, a hole in the wall is often just what you want to plug into, with a few other souls, kindred or otherwise. For years, my hole has been a dive in a crook of the Schnellbahn at Praterstern. Its sign – Blue Banana Café Bar […]

After Dark: Red Swank

Who’s for the Red Room? In all probability, if you’re a well-heeled expat with a cushy number at the UN and a penchant for skinny ladies wrapped in tight denim, you most certainly are. It’s hard to believe that the bar, with its suave clientèle and razor-sharp design, is only a stone’s throw from the […]

After Dark: Loos-en Up!

“Excuse me, pardon. Oh, Entschuldigung!” As I wade through the feet and bodies crammed into the tiny Loos American Bar just off Kärntnerstrasse, the guests I passed seem unperturbed by my massive bag which joined me for my after-work drink. I was there with an Austrian fashion designer and a few of her friends, fleeing […]

After Dark: On the Roof

Launching a new upscale hotel in the tourist haven that is Vienna is undoubtedly a daunting prospect. Still, my interest was piqued upon hearing about a new “25 Hours”  design hotel opening up next to the Volkstheater, promoting a rooftop bar with a magnificent view of the city. This was the fifth and newest branch […]

After Dark: Beach Bar Boozing

The sand is still cold and a little wet, but it feels good to curl the toes into it. Comfortably leaning back in one of the red deck chairs, people chat away as they enjoy drinking cocktails or long drinks on a beach in the center of Vienna. If it weren’t for the hundreds of […]

Ottakringer Goes Irish

The poster read: “Thank You Vienna For 10 Great Years at Charlie P’s!” Well, I had been here for quite a few of those, so was pleased to be given a ticket to the Irish pub’s tenth anniversary, celebrated at the Ottakringer brewery with music by TribU2, a U2 cover band. I arrived at the […]
