Die Parfümerie cocktail bar
Follow your nose to aromatic cocktails at Die Parfümerie Bar Finding Die Parfümerie can be a challenge. The new permanent home of a trio of mixologists that made their name as a pop-up bar, we searched in vain for a sign indicating their presence, strolling unsuspectingly past the locale several times. Finally, we consulted Siri and reexamined an inconspicuous storefront...

Savor the last days of summer on the terrace of the 25hours Hotel's Dachboden bar Late summer may be the best season to enjoy Vienna: As the evenings grow long again, locals scramble to make the most of the last golden days before another grey winter sets in. And better still, with half the (student) population either still on holiday...

The city’s watering holes are a traditional bastion for one of Austria’s unhealthier pastimes – and will remain so for some time yet, as the government’s recent decision to ban smoking from restaurants and indoor areas only takes effect in 2018. If you can’t...
The trouble with partying like there’s no tomorrow is that tomorrow always rears its ugly head. Even the most enchanting evening becomes a vague blur when attacked by the persistent blows of reality hammering their way into your skull. In such cases, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; how fortunate then that prevention is usually just...
