Awesome cocktail list - pricey but (mostly) worth the cash

This is one of my favourite bars in Vienna - for cocktails you can't beat it. The list of drinks is so long that you should put aside at least an hour to study it! Besides the classics like Mai Tai, Sex on the Beach and Singapore Sling, there are many that you'll never have heard of. The staff... read more

....we were glad to walk into this one! Julian is a great host and this bar is fascinating. Beware, they do allow smoking so can be a bit fuggy when busy, but they have a non smoking seating area too and Julian makes sure he doesn't forget you. A def must see!

I've travelled a lot and I've visited many bars but before visiting this fabulous bar I couldn't imagine that there is such a superb place in the word. Great atmosphere, great music, great cocktails and drinks, great stuff... A real hidden gem, a real paradise for real bar-lovers. Don't leave Viena before visiting this bar. You'll lose the real taste... More

Fantastic experience here on a Saturday night, loved the atmosphere, felt very well looked after. Our cocktails were seriously amazing, for the price and quality (and quantity!) of alcohol and fresh fruit (I'm drooling just thinking about them), this is unbeatable compared to the likes of cocktail bars in London. Dim lighting to set the mood, jazz music playing, 1400... More

The bar had great decor and an extensive cocktail menu, but unfortunately the smoke forced us outside the bar room into the non-smoking spill-over lounge room with much less ambiance. Most bars in Vienna still allow smoking and it seems almost everyone smokes. This was the only downfall here.

Hi Danielle.. thank you very much for your compliments. Starting 2018 smoking will not be allowed anymore in Bars in Austria and I believe people really enjoy their freedom at the Moment. And so sometimes at weekends it gets a bit smokey in here. But we still hope you had a great evening. Cheers from Vienna Your Barfly's Team More

I've been recently there with some friends of mine and we absolutely loved it: enjoyable athmosphere, very nice bartenders and many different cocktails (they aren't expensive at all!). I recommend Barflys to all those who want to live a great night in Wien.

Too many cocktails to chose from! The actual bar is lovely and dark and atmospheric but allows smoking. The area just outside it has tables and is non smoking but is no where as nice

A small and cozy bar in the basement at Hotel Metternich. The inner section by the bar is a smoking section! They play great jazz music and you will find many locals hanging out at this bar.

In my opinion, Barflys is the best Cocktail bar in Vienna, located in the hotel Fürst Metternich. Unique atmosphere, great music, offers a wide variety of Cocktails and lots of different brands of Whisky. Friendly and professional staff - we always feel very welcome!

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.

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighborhood Profile
Mariahilf
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the center. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theater decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
