MASSIVE beer selection, a 10 minute walk from the hostel. Despite the name, it's not an(other) Australian bar.


Live music from around the world (with a slight Latin bias) + club nights. 

Donau Techno

Cool Techno club with good vibes. Best part: Food kiosk inside the club and always different interior projections on the wall. 

Museum Quarters Vienna

Hip cluster of museums; highlights including two of the big players in the modern / contemporary art scene, The Leopold & MUMOK, plus the Architecture Center and a few others. Depending on the time of year it can be a popular place for a beer in the evening, too, whilst lazing around on the iconic 'Enzi' chairs.

Beaver Brewing Company

Excellent choice of craft beers. Very good food including vegan and vegetarian options. 


Popular Irish pub, an easy 15 minute walk down Mariahilferstrasse (may take longer on the way home ;) ) 


Popular mega-club with ridiculous sound system. Musical genres vary wildly, so check what's on before going. 

U4 Vienna

Probably the best place for big cheesy old-skool studenty club nights: 90s, rock, r'n'b, etc. Check their website for schedule.


Frequent live Indie / Alternative shows in the week, plus (free) Indie club nights Friday and Saturday. Check their homepage for listings.

Charlie P's Pub and Dining

Charlie P's (Irish Pub)

Fluc und Fluc Wanne

Cool place... Diverse (mostly electronic) club nights, plus frequent live music. 


Popular club at weekends in the Volksgarten park. 'House, disco and party hits" . 


Oldest jazz club in the city. Live music Monday - Saturday.

1516 Brewing Company

Great craft beer + Viennese food / burgers

Freiraum Restaurant Cafe Bar

Freiraum (fancier bar)


Popular pub / club with an indie bias. Frequent live music + club nights. 

Tunnel Vienna Live

Frequent Live music (often Bluesy / Jazzy) + other random stuff.

Travel Shack Vienna

Popular late-night party bar for travelers and students, within easy staggering distance.


Cool hip place which is always full. Really nice peanut cake, brownies and refreshing drinks. Not far from hostel. 

Café Downstairs

Classic "student's" bar near Mariahilferstrasse and Museumsquartier, cocktail of the week is usually great value, can be quite packed at times but you can have beers in a pub directly upstairs of Downstairs


Student Mondays!! Do we have to say more?! Very good music selection, cheap beer and good Schnapps.
