We have been looking for BBC cocktail for ages and this bar has it and it tasted great. There is a huge selection of drinks here and a very nice atmosphere with good service.

Great at for a few drinks after dinner, great service and gin selection. We had a few drinks here after a work function, and were amazed to see a dog and its owner leave the bar around 11:30pm.

Its one of the best American bars in Vienna but what makes this one distinctive is that its hidden from the masses... It offers privacy and romance with great cocktails, service and music. Shelter for all night-flies...You´ll fall in love with this place!

Nice service, good drinks. The selection of liquors was excellent and the bartender's mixing skills too. Classy, elegant, but still very cosy.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
