Vienna's past as the centre of a multicultural, multi-ethnic state may contribute to the romantic aura of the locality - but it is a fact that the Ost Klub is the gateway to the Balkans, Eastern Europe and Russia. Not far from the Ringstraße, between the Russian memorial and numerous embassies and cultural institutions located around Schwarzenbergplatz, the Ost Klub has put down roots in a historic place.
After the Second World War, American GIs founded the city's first jazz club here. Since 2005, Balkan beats, Gypsy swing, Klezmer punk and Turbo polka have set the tone on around of 1000 m2 of club space. The Ost Klub also extends its themed, musical feelers in other directions and world musicians from the north, south and west are also very welcome here as guests.
Renowned festivals such as the Accordion Festival, the Balkan Fever Festival and KelzMore Festival have found an ideal club and concert atmosphere in the Ost Klub.
