Gumpendorfer Straße

Gumpendorfer Straße lies between Mariahilfer Straße and Naschmarkt. It was once a nondescript side street, but restaurants are bars now also flourish here, thanks to the neighboring MuseumsQuartier. Right at the beginning of Gumpendorfer Straße, at the boundary with the 1st District, several trendy restaurants have made themselves at home.

Addicted to Rock offers fans of rock music burgers, lots of gin, beer, cocktails and the occasional unplugged concerts. The Asian restaurant Ra'mien impresses with excellent cuisine and minimalist interior architecture. Unlike the Ra'mien Bar in the basement: here, the furnishings of an old Chinese restaurant form an attractive contrast to the electronic DJ sounds. Next door, the ShanghaiTan goes for a dim ambience. Exotic dining can be enjoyed here long past midnight, and there's a cellar with cozy booths.

People head for the Top Kino on the corner of Rahlgasse for more than just the films. Trendy guests enjoy a drink at the bar in the adjacent restaurant. Similar to the crowd at the Phil, where people enjoy coffee in total relaxation on second-hand sofas and chairs. Most of them date to the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and can also be purchased. The same applies to selected DVDs, books and records.

Just one door further on is the next trendy place to go: If Dogs Run Free is a modern cocktail bar that is refreshingly different from the usual bar clichés and trendy ambience. A classically traditional Viennese café is situated right opposite: Café Sperl is of the most beautiful coffee houses in Vienna and still has old billiards tables in use. On the corner of Girardigasse, the design duo Walking Chair has transformed a red-light venue into a picturesque bar called Puff, a name that makes historical reference to its former use! Humorous cocktail machines were installed between the black leather bench booths of yesteryear, light flowers made from PET bottles create great effects in front of the mirrored walls and highballs of every kind are the theme for the cocktails.

The Eissalon really did use to be an Italian ice cream parlour. Ice cream is still sold here today and in the evening the place operates as a bar with cocktails and wines. A little detour into Theobaldgasse is also worthwhile: just around the corner is Mon Ami, a charming mix of bar and café.
