Okay for late night drink - tourist premium and smoky

Nice enough for a tourist spot - weird karaoke music with professional sax player and singer (taped backing track). Very smoky as all bars in Vienna seem to be. Friendly staff but... read more

We visited the sky bar for a drink as it boasted great views of the city and a must see! The views were mainly of the back of buildings and roof tops. Our waiter was completely rude! Be warned that if you go into the main bar (left at the top of the stairs) it's all smoking area. You have... More

We had dinner in the restaurant first and had a drink in the lounge after. The food was great, but the plates are too big we couldn't finish. The service was correct. It's always great to have a drink in this cozy lounge, drinking well done cocktails. The signer is also a good idea in the bar but most of... More

This bar is centrally located, near the St. Stephen's Cathedral and has a view on it. There's a 2-3 minutes of walk to reach there from the church. The bar is located on the top floor of the Steffl department store. So you need to get in Steffl and then use the elevator twice because you have to change it.... More

This place has the potential to be a great place that should be super cool and classy..... however... Overpriced drinks, rubbish service that took 15 mins after we were seated for drinks, wrong order delivered and no snacks with the drinks (as ordered). Didn't help that the place is full of cigar smoke and the bright lights reflect off the... More

Spent couple of hours here with clients. The bar menu is good and pretty expensive but they have good collection. The young ladies at the bar are kind of weird because either they cannot converse in English or can be misunderstood to be prudish and rude. Yes but overall and good place on the 7th floor of the shopping store... More

I had a brilliant time in Vienna, and after a enjoying plenty of great bars and meeting lovely people I had high hopes for The Sky Bar. However it is quite possibly the worst bar I have ever been to. I was greeted by the doorman who welcomed us by making us put our jackets into the cloakroom for 2... More

Nice enough for a tourist spot - weird karaoke music with professional sax player and singer (taped backing track). Very smoky as all bars in Vienna seem to be. Friendly staff but 20 minute wait after ordering for a couple of simple rum and cokes. No cover charge and open late. Wouldn't rush back.

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.
