A Vienna Must-See

Good cocktails in a tiny bar by famous Viennese Jugendstil architect Alfred Loos. Used to be a private house about a century ago.

This is the best bar in Vienna. Best drinks, perfect service, great architecture and interior. Its quiet small so on weekends its super packed. Can get smokey from time to time, its also very nice to sit outside until they lock up at night. I really love it here.

Vienna is a lovely city with great cafes and nice bars! This one, is not one of them! Do not get me wrong, this hole-in-the-wall bar displays nice interiors and a very decent setting. The problem, I would rather say, is the man behind the bar, who I was fortunate enough to encounter. I visited the American Bar last year.... More

We went for the stunning architecture - which it was - but enjoyed our drinks too. I had a Hendricks with Fever Tree tonic which they made special by adding cucumber and pepper, and my husband had a beer. The bar staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I'm sure they'd get understandably irritated by gawpers who don't buy a drink but... More

Was a really fun little bar, in fact the only draw back was it was small. Great mixed drinks and cocktail list. We did not eat there but but drinks were fantastic and the service was excellent. The bartenders were extremely knowledgeable and they had an excellent selection of scotch, whiskey, and rye. The bartender (Polish guy) was also helpful... More

Cosy is a word for cramped in some language and I guess there is an element of that in this review - I wasn't expecting Loos to be this small!! I don't think I've ever been in a bar this small!! It's got character oozing out of every corner... It won't be for everyone as it's smokey (they still allow... More

A bar like they should be.A real american bar with very good service, drinks and ambiente. Very polite and guest-oriented staff although a bit overpriced in my opinion. Would very much like to go there again.

An iconic destination for anyone interested in either American bars or amazing architecture. One of the first examples of Art Deco, it has been beautifully preserved.

We decided to go in there for a drink before dinner and quickly remembered that we were not in America anymore. The place is very small and pretty cozy but the major problem is the fog and the smell of smoke from the cigarettes. I totally understand that this is Europe and that most places are smoker friendly, but in... 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.
