It's found in almost every black and white movie and always forms the melting pot of the actors: the bar with music. Ever since "Casablanca", the image of a lively place with piano music has been firmly anchored in our culture. The hustle and bustle of Las Vegas took matters farther and expanded the scenery with new attributes.
A permanent venue for bar music in the city is the Cascade Bar at Vienna Marriott Hotel. Every Friday and Saturday starting at 9.30 p.m.singer Caroline Kreutzberger provides bar entertainment at it's best (no live music from July to September).
The musical concept of the Dinner Club Albertina Passage can be described in following few words: Jazz, Funk and Soul. The extraordinary stage in the middle of the room, where music programme with DJs and performances change on a daily basis, is the club’s centrepiece. On Fridays and Saturdays the AP All Stars musicians are performing in full instrumentation. It incorporates jazzy, instrumental grooves which were inspired by legends of Latin and Jazz, but also relate to the contemporary streams like Acid Jazz and Nu Groove.
The Intermezzo Bar in the Hotel InterContinental Vienna is a classical American Bar with one of the most impressive chandeliers in town. Additionally, from Tuesday to Sunday starting at 7 pm, the pianoman plays his songs.
Close to St. Stephen's Cathedral you can find the American Bar Nightfly's. Every thursday (exc. July - Sept.) they celebrate "Sparkling Piano Nights". The club offers more than 250 of the very best cocktails along with finest whisk(e)ys, rums and cigars selected from all around the globe.
Visit the Bonbonnière Bar, if you are looking for something unusual. Red silk tapestries, crystal and baroque angels make you feel entering a sphere of former ages - a bit strange, but full of charme. The pianoman plays old memories, everyday starting at 9 p.m. except Sundays.
