The Point of Sale

Freihausviertel

The Naschmarkt is a must for connoisseurs. In the neighboring Freihausviertel, small designer shops, modern galleries and a lively scene deliver urban flair. Schleifmühlgasse is an especially popular place for many galleries and trendy dining establishments to set up shop. On the corner of Schleifmühlgasse/Naschmarkt is the cozy Café Amacord. The Amacord is not only a café, but also a really good restaurant serving classical dishes of Viennese cuisine. For many artists and creative types based in the district, it is an extension to their living rooms.

The next stop in Schleifmühlgasse is the little osteria Acht Ein Halb, offering Italian cuisine. A real institution can be found diagonally opposite: the legendary Café Anzengruber serves a mix of Viennese and Croatian cuisine, is famous for its good beer and enchants with its austere charm. Next door is Szigeti Sektcomptoir. Bubbly from Burgenland's sparkling wine producer Szigeti is poured in the bar.

The Breakfast Club and Babette's have special opening times. The Breakfast Club serves nothing but breakfast, and closes at 2.00 pm. Babette's is actually a special shop for cook books, herbs and spices, but also serves a menu at lunch time. A bit further along at Point of Sale, there's something on throughout the day and evening, although here as well they specialize on breakfast, which is offered on weekends up to as late as 5.00 pm.

Another culinary highlight awaits in Schleifmühlgasse: Coté Sud is a small establishment with recommended French cuisine, and also sells delicacies from France. There is also a classic Viennese bistro, or 'beisl', in the vicinity. Everything is agreeable at Ubl: the Viennese cuisine, the atmosphere, the furnishings and the service.

If you're looking for the exotic, head for Beograd. This rustic establishment serves Balkan dishes, and visitors can even expect live music on some days during the week. It's an experience with a fantastic atmosphere. The specialty on the menu is the "Burning Hun Sword".

The Freishausviertel also has something to offer night owls: In the evening the Kiosk on Schleifmühlgasse is a trendy meeting point, where DJs set the mood from Thursday to Saturday. The Schikaneder Bar, with daily changing DJs, is connected to a regular cinema and is a popular meeting place for a colorfully mixed crowd. It’s a similar story at the Transporter Bar: DJs also play here, there are ping-pong evenings and occasional small concerts.

The latest newcomer in the Freihausviertel is the trendy restaurant Zweitbester. The cooking here is done sometimes by Grandma, sometimes by the DJ, with occasional concerts in the bathroom. And the whole thing is currently extremely popular.
