A hand-picked selection of the best places in Vienna to drink schnapps and eat cake with other gay, lesbian or transgender people. From the trashy bar to a queer bookstore to the sweetest tart-coffeehouse - you can also enjoy these locations during the day.
An absolutely favourite place, especially for lesbians, who have chosen Café Willendorf as their outsourced living room. The restaurant has recently been redecorated and continues to offer delicious food and many vegetarian options. The Turquoise Rosa Lila Villa, the community centre in the house, provides counseling and information services.
"Cake is comforting food!" is the motto of the small, pretty café in the 2nd district. Do you fancy a vegan pina colada cake or a walnut brittle cream with a brownie espresso layer? There are no limits to the gluten-free and lactose-free delicacies and sometimes there are readings of queer or feminist literature.
A must for every gay tourist! The extraordinary architecture from the 18th century with opulent stucco, gilded wood and huge mirrors is certainly worth a visit. Many people are of the same opionion, so it's usually busy.
Good vibes after work
Off onto the dance floor
In these locations you can sip cocktails and then dance the night away. Whether chilled house-beats, fast samba rhythms or groovy soul music – it’s party time here after work!
