Porgy & Bess Jazz is the space

A modern live music venue where the sound and light concepts actually matter, is not as common as it should be. Aware of this, Porgy and Bess, the jazz and music club, made it their goal to create a contemporary performance space for jazz music—one that was able to transform according to the dictates of the music.

Additionally, there is a CD shop and internet cafe, a gallery, a restaurant and three bars (two in the lower level and one on the balcony). If that was not enough, below the stage there is also a rehearsal room and a sound studio, which allows professional recording for on- or off-stage productions.

While featuring local and international jazz artists like Bobby Previte, Kenny Wheeler, Django Bates, Eliott Sharp and Martin Siewert, there are also some cross over collaborations with electronica experimental label, Charihzma. On the weekends there are soul and funk DJ sessions.

Futuregarden Welcome to the...

The Viennese art crowd converges at Futuregarden—exhibiting artists, curators and students from the art academies drink and rub elbows here. Owned by and adjacent to the Galerie Amer Abbas, the Futuregarden’s guests spill over during events to the gallery next door and vice versa.

Facing the Flakturm near Gumpendorferstrasse, the space is bare and minimally furnished with simple tables and stools. On display are photos, painting and media art. Art meets music when local DJs like David Jerina (Die Techno-Hit Parade), Evirgen, Lady Mustache and SM48 (Wrckd) come to spin, entertaining with minimal and old school techno, disco, hip hop and rock.
