“My favourite Jazz club in Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

At each our visit in Vienna, an evening is always devoted to Porgy & Bess. Beautiful room, good food and drink and great music.
All 3 times we went to Vienna, there were at least one or two good shows.
In addition the club has a very good internet site, where you can see the program and book tickets early. The prices are reasonable.

“Best Jazz Club in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

This has got to be my favorite place in Vienna. the club is well designed with a decent view of the stage. Sound balancing is great. They also have a pretty good food and drink selection. They regularly have interesting performers from the local (the Flow was great) to international (Leopoldo Fleming is the man). The crowd is great, although it's predominantly austrian. Though that shouldn't be an issue since it really is a nice place for locals to chill out and even for tourists to get a taste of what locals chill out to.

Entrance goes from 15 euro to 30 depending on the act performing. Tables are usually placed on reservation, but arriving early may help you get a good table. Another awesome thing about this place is, of course, during the intermission you can definitely mingle with the performers.

oh, and you can't smoke inside.

Good design, unusual and interesting shows) good atmosphere, but still Austrian more than international. Nice prices for the city, while the entrance fee is 15Eur. Tables are for club members.
