Jazzland is like a time capsule, because you just don't see live music venues like it anymore. The walls are jammed w photos of the musicians that have played there since the 1970s, like Art Farmer or Dexter Gordon. The cellar itself is very atmospheric and has great acoustics. Plan on spending a minimum of 100 bucks because admission was... More

A must to visit if You like Jazz. The place seemed a bit hided away, but when you find it, just go down to the basement. Try the Wienerschnitzel with Erdapfelsalat when listening.

Really small club, great music and pretty ok food for just grabbing something to eat. I would except a bit larger place for such a place but gave us a close feeling with those old guys playing jazz.

We enjoy classical music, but we love a great night of jazz and that is what you will find at this hard to find, but worth the effort - local jazz club. Typical small jazz club with a reasonable cover charge, good beer and wine, and a nice cheese plate while listening to local jazz musicians. We arrived shortly after... More

A great experience. A jazz cellar, reminiscent of the "pods" in Krakow. Do get there early. We didn't and I stood for remainder of the first half without being able to see the musicians - Affäre Dreyfuss. However, people left and I had a fine seat & view for the second half. Jazzland is open every night except Sundays. Their... More

The group which was playing was "The Sax Brothers". Very nice band! Maybe it is the best place to listen to real jazz live. Near the center of the town. The environment is excellent, as well as the audience. The prices were normal. Is the same sense as it was ten years ago, when I visited again Vienna.

Don't be put off by the outside appearance as you enter an Aladdin's cave of jazz delights! Great opportunity to watch live jazz musicians, great atmosphere. Will definitely return.

Jazz was good and the space is beautiful, nicely tucked in in an alley of sorts. One major downsize: beverage list.. There was nothing there! It is either beer, bad whiskey or other excuses for drinks.. A big downside since a nice (good) glass of wine, a good whiskey or a nice coctail goes perfectly with good jazz.. Tons of... More

Jazzland is the oldest jazz club in Vienna, dating from 1972. It's located on Franz-Josef-Kai 29, easily accessible by tram. The venue looks like a crypt with vaulted ceilings. Seating room is limited, so it is not advisable to show up too late. Concerts usually start at 9 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. You can while away the time... More

Very nice jazz club. Tasty food. Cosy, but crouded, so come an hour before the music starts. Otherwise you will have no comfortable seat neat a table and would have to hold your beer in hands along the whole concert. On the other hand, if the band is not you major priority, you can have a table on the lower... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
