At the Casino: A Bittersweet Taste of Risk

At the Casino: A Bittersweet Taste of Risk

“No more bets, please,” the croupier says forcefully, while the crowd around the roulette-table pushes forward, obsessed with the ball bouncing uneasily around the wheel. I’m at Casinos Austria on the Kärtner Straße in Vienna’s 1st District with a friend who is a regular. Some might call him an addict; I just see it as […]

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 […]

Intern(al) Culture Shock

Intern(al) Culture Shock

Cold Comfort for the Weary by Sam Poloway Waking up at noon with my ears still ringing from a late night at Chaya Fuera – a club that rocked me until six in the morning – my roommate and I decided to go out to get ingredients for Bloody Marys. Walking into the grocery store […]

The Two Faces of Vienna’s Bermuda Triangle

The Two Faces of Vienna’s Bermuda Triangle

There may be no place in Vienna that does more of a transformation when the sun goes down than this super-central corner of the 1st District. Ranging up the hill from Morzinplatz, next to Schwedenplatz, along Franz-Josefs-Kai on the Danube Canal, the area encompasses a handful of small streets and stairways up to the Hoher […]

The Gate Crasher: Sodom and Gomorrha

The Gate Crasher: Sodom and Gomorrha

An upside-down cross hung over the dance floor as I stepped into the Sodom and Gomorrha party at the disco Grelle Forelle on the Danube Canal. This was the first time I’d ever jumped the line. It may have been due to gate-crashing-cojones, or just the drinks I’d already consumed, but who cares? I was […]

Posing with the Big Boys

Posing with the Big Boys

“Isn’t it funny how people who can afford to pay always manage to get into these things for free?” said a man turning to my date for the evening, the thick smugness dripping from his smile like double cream. I smirked uncomfortably to myself: Gate crashing was a financial necessity to me, but as my […]

After Dark: The Retro Pavillion

After Dark: The Retro Pavillion

Tuesday used to be a boring night in Vienna. Other than Thursdays, which were always “gay night”, Fridays and Saturdays were the only days to party. Not that you necessarily want to party hard during the week, but it’s nice to have a place to gather and bump into people you know, as one does […]

London Calling

London Calling

Where do you go if you want good-looking girls in Vienna? Well, if you wanted to make the best of what there was on offer, what would you do for an evening? Passage? Platzhirsch? Scotch? Box? Grelle Forelle? Club Couture? There are hundreds of clubs. Ten years ago when I was first here, there was […]
