Zum Gschupftn Ferdl
The wine tavern as it is known, is a piece of Viennese culture. So a new establishment in the heart of the city in no way fits the classic image of the heuriger: “Zum Gschupftn Ferdl” gives the wine tavern a course of live cell therapy. The façade and counter have a pixelated appearance and embroidered design that evokes the aesthetics of computer games of the 1980s. Even Pacman can be found here. A surprising feature in the back room is a stone pine parlor painted completely in white, which was designed by the artist Filius de Lacroix.
Only organic food is served at the "Gschupftn Ferdl" – and there’s even a certificate to prove it. There are hot dishes from Austrian cuisine and always a meat-free alternative. However, the centerpiece is the snack buffet - with a range of “Brettljause” options. Here as well, only food from first-class producers is offered. And as befits a heuriger, there is naturally a fine selection of Austrian wines.
Music is on the program at weekends, mostly with DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, with live concerts on Thursdays by bands for which the new Viennese song is also in plentiful supply. During the week, the guests can select their music from 700 tracks on the Wurlitzer, which is stocked solely with Austrian music.
