The Loos Bar is a Viennese establishment .....very cozy and tiny venue but big in the variety of cocktails, wine, non-alcoholic and beer. It was rather pleasant sipping champagne in the summer heat, though the champagne could be a bit more chilled. The loos martini was perfect. We were impressed by the friendly and knowledgeable waiter, his service was charming.... More

The place is tiny, but it offers seats outside in the shade. It is an absolutely beautiful building. It's a bit odd to see signs saying no sightseeing or pictures, but if you order a drink, I don't think they mind as much. The drinks we ordered were all made perfectly and delicious. A great place to stop while in... More

I envy the people who actually get into this place to have a drink as the staff member at the entrance told us we weren't allowed in to have a look. So we were obviously tourists and we may have been dithering but what made him decide we weren't there for a drink. Fair to say he made the decision... More

Loos Bar is excellent for both its architecture and design which takes you back to a decadent by-gone era of Gatsby, and its seriously special cocktail menu which will reward your time spent - I like whisky cocktails and had a perfectly made Manhattan. The service was efficient and friendly, likely it was brisk as most service is in Austria... More

I was gobsmacked by how small this place was! But it is beautiful too; nearly as wonderfully designed as Adolf Loos' public toilets just around the corner. The cocktails we had were perfectly mixed and definitely on the classy side. There is hardly any room inside but if its warm then there is some outside seating. It must be one... More

Make a point to have a cocktail inside, it feels like you went back in time. The bar only has 20 seats inside so it fills up fast but if you get there before 6pm you should be good. The drinks are tasty and the bartenders are great.

I was disappointed in this bar. It's a small smokey bar. I didn't think the cocktails were any better than that in some other bars. Not for me this one.

We liked the bar and the atmosphere although you should be warned: the bar is very small and gets very crowded very easily. Also, it is a smoking venue. If you can tolerate these two facts, you are in for a very pleasant evening. The drinks were good, as was the wine. The music was unobtrusive and the vibe was... More

This bar is a little gem that was recommended to us during our visit. You walk in and will see large mirrors which give you the impression that it's much bigger than it actually is. It's also in the shopping district and perfect if you feel like a resting during your tour. My lady tried a tasty Mojito while I... More

A friend recommend this bar to me. I had a very tasty Old Fashioned here. This bar is little and a surprise too. The space is limited, but stories are endless here.
