Cool and homy bar

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.

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

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. 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

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.
