Hidden highlights of Vienna's nightlife: the city's most unusual bars

Vienna has some hidden treasures in its nightlife that are well worth discovering. Away from the well-known hotspots, there are a multitude of bars hidden behind secret entrances and original concepts. Here are some of our recommendations for an unforgettable night on the town:

1. the chapel

To gain access to this hidden bar, you must first visit the Gasthaus Mozart. Ask for “The Chapel”, which translates as “The Chapel”. A friendly member of staff will then direct you to another door. Behind the huge painting of a nun is a confessional. Overcome it to finally arrive at the chapel bar.

2. the Fitzcarraldo Bar

In the middle of Neubaugasse you will find an unusual drinks vending machine. Press the head for the return money to gain access to the Fitzcarraldo Bar. This bar, run by Sammy Walfisch and the well-known influencer Hank Ge, not only offers a unique atmosphere, but also excellent cocktails.

3. the Plus 43 Bar

To get into this centrally located speakeasy bar on Westbahnstraße, you first have to find out the secret code. You can request this by telephone or by message. Fusion cocktails await you there, some of which are even served in unusual containers such as light bulbs.

4th door 7

Hidden next to an impressive black gate, the golden number 7 catches the eye. Few people know that one of the best cocktail bars in the 8th district is hidden behind this door. Managing Director Gerhard Tshai and two colleagues have been running this hidden gem since 2014. Their aim: to create a cozy atmosphere in which guests can relax undisturbed.
