Kolar – Fladen. Beer. What else?

This is where I find myself stumbling in on a regularly basis. In desperate need of getting rid of my hangry mood, eager to have a dark beer or very much wanting a Glühwein in summertime (they serve them all year round, yeah!). I don’t think I’ve explicitly planned to go there in ages – it just happens and I’m always glad it does.

Kolar will charm your socks off with its authentic (and a little underdog) ambiance underneath the ancient houses arcs. Also, they have a nice fit in between two houses Schanigarten or you can sit outside on the well hidden, pedestrian Kleeblattgasse.

Situated in Vienna’s oldest residential building (built in 1539) Kolar shows off with a lively history. This house has hosted all kinds of establishments. For a while it was a bathhouse (euphemism for pleasure house, some say). Even Mozart is believed to have spent time under the low-ceilinged vault – not clear if it was during the pleasure house time though.

Since 1987 Kolar has been serving Fladen which you can watch turn golden brown in the open fire of the stone oven. Fladen is a type of bread filled with all kinds of delicious stuff that combines perfectly with their home-brewed beer – ignoring the danger of repeating my lines: Try the dark one!
