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

This is small, authentic and very nice jazz club. We paid 11 Euro for entry and it definitely worth it. The music was perfect, there are nice snacks and good beer. Most of the visitors are 45+. The place is pretty small, and not all the places has view to the scene - so worth arriving earlier to get good... More

A small under ground placed jazzclub with live music and friendly people. It gave me a kind of "local" feel and the venue was small that it was easy to as a foreign traveller get in talk with local guests. You have to pay to get in, but the live music and atmosphere is well worth it.

This is not the easiest venue to find, but do make the effort. It is in cellars - small, intimate, great acoustics, and on the night we went, great music. Be warned, though, turn up early for a seat with view of the band (we turned up at 8pm for a 9pm start and got some of the last seats... More

In keeping with all the best jazz venues, a slightly daunting closed steel door leads down a flight of steps in an industrial brick corridor, to a a brick catacomb - a temple to jazz. Mostly black and white photos adorn the walls, testament to the artists. And this is not one of those places where amplification is required to... More

This is great friendly place mostly locals. The owners made sure we had somewhere to sit by asking people at a table to move along a bit. We didn't eat and the food looked fairly ordinary. Most people were just having a drink and small snacks. The entrance to the place is a door round the back which you might... 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.
