Nightlife in Vienna

When night falls on Vienna's landmarks, the Innere Stadt's old-world pubs, Heurigen (wine taverns) and minimalist bars beckon. Sip crisp Austrian white wines in the 400-year-old vaults of Esterházykeller, or cocktails in marble-walled Loos American Bar. Superstar DJs dominate the decks at canalfront Flex and starlit Volksgarten, while Mariahilf lures partygoers to its Bedouin-style lounges and cocktail bars. Catch performances at the opulent Vienna State Opera or Musikverein. Most bars open until 2am, clubs until 5am.
