This small, somewhat hidden bar is my very favorite around here when it comes to cocktails. Why hidden away? Well you don’t find first floor bars or cafes a lot in Vienna, almost everything is street level. Therefore people are not used to having to lift their eyes and unfortunately will miss awesome spots like this one.
So here I am, telling you where to look up at, in order to find decently priced first class cocktails. This American cocktail bar is located in the middle of “Bermuda Triangle” bar area, popular amongst a rather young crowd devoted to alcohol. I think First Floor stands out as a much classier place in this neighborhood.
For those of you not so sure what to get, tell the barman your liking and he’ll mix you a nice drink. This is how I was once introduced to my all-time favorite “China Town”.
For the perfect cocktail evening, try to get a table on Thursday when they have live Jazz performances.
As mentioned earlier, the place is small, so if you’re with more people or want to make sure to have a table, reserve one in advance. Cheers!
