Love this tiny bar

We love to go here for a drink at the end of the day in the winter. This is a tiny little bar, designed by the famous "Loos". You won't be sorry you spent an hour here.

No need to bring your own cigars as everyone else seemed to be smoking one. The place is full with 20 in it and there was one barman, one glass collector. Good service, wide range of cocktails, but be prepared to wait. I was a lucky one as I got a seat. Glad to have seen the place but felt... More

I saw the review on tripadvisor and wanted to try this bar out. However it was almost impossible to get in because it is very small - only about 5 tables. And a lot of people smoking inside - yes in 2015??! How very not trendy!! We had one drink and had to leave - as I am allergic to... More

Since I discovered the bar a few years back, I make a point of visiting it on every visit in Vienna. On a busy Saturday night it has exactly the right atmosphere. As a bonus, it has a solid position as a minor classic in the history of architecture.

Called in by chance one afternoon. Very small bar made to look bigger by strategic placement of mirrors. Imagine it could be crowded in the evenings. However the bar staff were very helpful in choosing drinks and the cocktails were interesting and excellent.

Expect to pay more but sitting outside was pleasant and prompted an engaging conversation with a local. Service is prompt and courtious.

if you sit inside it is really really small, and after about 10.30 pm you have to as the street tables are closed then, nevertheless the atmosphere is great if you are not afraid of smoke, as there is no smoking ban in Austria. Good music as well but beware - you will be lucky to get a seat.

If you have an interest in funky bars with some history then definitely go to Loos bar. Read guidebooks to find out why it's important architecturally. Good service and good cocktails.. Just a shame people can still some inside bars in Europe..

This was another recommendation from our hotel. great position, handy for everything. Welcoming, nice atmosphere and we had good reports of it from some of the locals we met. However it did not have the same charisma as our preferred discovery but handy on the way back from sightseeing before getting to another watering hole.

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.
