“Pretentious to the highest order”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Me and my gf walked in here and were greeted as if we were second class citizens the lady at the entrance looked us up and down then said "let me just check something"she walks back with some pretentious clown and says to her in front of us "shirts are ok"as if oh they can come in suppose here is a tip for you you snob all you have to say is sorry there is a specific dress code and that's how you have some manners.in summary if your a pretensious snob you will love this place.

“Great view at night.”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

You get an amazing view of teh Stephansdom and although pricey it is still cheaper that paying the prices on the Stephensplatz.
Cocktails are lovely and are a standard price for a cocktail bar in Vienna. Do not be put off by the entrance via a lift in a store.
Service could be better so go if you want to chill.

“Loved rooftop views close to the cathedral”
Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

Great stop for a coffee on a sunny April this morning, very relaxing to sit out on the balcony. Not cheap though.

“Racial Discrimination at SkyBar”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

We were ignored by several waiters. Three sets of customers were served before we were. Actually, we didn't even get served. The last straw was when another set of customers sitting beside us were served first even though we were there 15 min before. We got up and my attempts to talk to the manager were useless since he got nervous that I had raised my voice. I didn't want to argue so we left. If you are a person of color, expect to get ignored at this place.

“Rip off venue. Don't bother”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

We went for a drink on a Saturday evening and the staff seemed very disinterested in us and were more concerned with the people on their reservation list. There were hardly any people staying for any period of time and most were trying to leave.We chose to put our coats on our chairs and were told they had to go in the cloakroom. They were taken from us and when we left they suddenly demanded 2 euros which we had not agreed to pay. The view is not great and overall I would say don't waste your time or your money.
