    Café Kraus

    Not only is the look of the 1920s in chic candy style and its own design language back, but also a very charming old tradition. Café Kraus - named after the eloquent Viennese publicist and satirist Karl Kraus - would like to be the center of intellectual gatherings and debates. The motto is "enjoyment and discourse". On the menu you will find classics of Viennese cuisine and new interpretations of international dishes. In the evenings, the Kraus is transformed into a bar.

    Café Friedl

    A day ideally starts with good coffee! That's what the former globetrotter siblings Lisa and Marcus thought, too, who, inspired by a trip to Hawaii, realized the dream of their own café. The interior design dominated by green and golden yellow with jungle photo wallpaper makes this place one of the coolest hipster cafes in town with small dishes, coffee specialties and pastries according to grandma's recipe.

    Barfly’s Club

    A legendary cocktail bar with lots of glamour! Velvet-covered stools and sofas, fringe-look lamps, green marble walls, as well as large mirrors and lots of gold are reminiscent of a bar where The Great Gatsby would also have fit in perfectly. Known for its extensive beverage portfolio of 1,200 whiskies, over 400 cocktail creations, and more than 500 different types of rum, this American bar is very popular.
