My husband and I went here with our 22 year-old daughter and her boyfriend and we ALL thought it was fantastic! The bartenders are artists and know how to make ANY drink imaginable. I think they house every alcohol on the planet! The staff made us feel like we were at a really fun party, they represented Itally, England, Columbia,... More

Barflys is a perfect cocktail bar, spoiling its guest with perfect cocktails, courteous service, a wonderful bar book, and an atmosphere that beams you right back into the great area of crooners and cocktails. If you have a choice, definitely choose the second room featuring leather furniture and the main bar. The first room is a bit more bare, which... More

Thank you very much, we appreciate your compliments. Regarding the jackets....as you know the bar is not so big, it is better when the customers leave their jackets in the cloakroom. We hope to see you soon again. More

This bar well deserves a high rating both for its elegant atmosphere as well as for the long list of cocktails and drink labels available. All professionally made with a staff that have done their homework well. Very friendly and professional at the same time.

As an outspoken cocktail-lover, it really hurts to read the "low rating comments" about the Barflys! Wheter there are cynophilists,which won't get that a bar isn't the right place for their beloved puppy, or ignorants, who confuse a classic cockailbar with a pub/coffee-shop (just naming a few)... The overall rating based on this "objective arguments" is unjustified degraded! Why i... More

I just love Barfly's. First off, it's a proper cocktail bar in the style of old San Francisco. Dark lighting, shelves and cabinets and piles of expensive liquors. Attractive bar ware. A drinks menu as big as a novel. Hazy romantic nooks for quiet cocktail sharing. Smoking is allowed, but the ventilation system keeps things clear enough for non-smokers to... More

It is not a bad sign when the value of the liquors stored exceeds that of the building and indeed there is an extensive choice of drinks. Staff was okay, but not overly inspiring. Main problem - as often in Austria: You feel like 20 years ago when nobody cared about being chocked by tobacco smoke. The ceiling propeller did... More

This is a very unique place with an extremely unique selection of scotch. As mentioned by other reviewers this is a pricey location but the flip side of this is a 13 page long selection of single malt scotch alone. Wait staff were a little indifferent especially considering I was drinking scotch/cognac priced at 30 euros plus and the cocktails... More

What a disappointing experience. This must be the least atmospheric bar in Vienna. No biers on offer unless you happen to like bottled Becks, otherwise no Austrian or German brews let alone anything else. Even a coffee seems to represent a problem here.

We stayed in the hotel joined to this bar and decided on our last night to venture down for a night cap...whilst I'm sure there are plenty of people who are happy to pay 10 euros for a single shot of rum or whisky...me and my partner unfortunately aren't one of them.
