The Motto is perhaps the ultimate happening place in Vienna - and has been for over 40 years. Behind the nondescript metal door there is a smartly designed restaurant offering sophisticated dining as well as a popular trendy bar. The establishment was completely remodeled in 2015 and now shines in new splendor: The raw industrial charm of unrendered walls meets comfy, upholstered benches in a rich green tone to create an interesting visual mix.
Apart from its impressive interior, the Motto is also known for its kitchen, which stays open after midnight. Night-owls love to drop by here for the legendary steak tartare or the baked ham pasta. The menu offers classic Austrian dishes alongside selected highlights from a wide variety of the world’s cuisines. The colorfully mixed crowd is served drinks and cocktails at the stylish bar, behind which a DJ often serves the best sounds. In summer, the pretty garden in the inner courtyard is also worth a look.
