The Red Room Salud!

Channeling 2001: A Space Odyssey, this futuristic-looking subterranean lounge could very well become a First District hot spot—with the right marketing, that is. Currently attracting a glitzier, buttoned-up crowd, the Red Room has, in our opinion, great potential. Bring the right crew and you’re golden. The upstairs restaurant Comida serves refreshingly original Creole, Caribbean and Spanish fare, but the real highlight of the establishment lies back downstairs in the bar, with the stellar rum selection.

Volksgarten Pavillon Charming '50s

With a view of Helden Platz and situated directly in Vienna’s large city park, hanging out in the ’50s-style Volksgarten Pavillion for the afternoon proves to be a very pleasant experience. Under the shade of the surrounding trees, the Pavillon serves up a delightful and fresh spread of Viennese and Mediterranean treats.

By daylight the Pavillon offers a relaxed environment where one can sip coffee, eat a selection of olives and prosciutto and read the newspaper. By night some of Vienna’s best DJs take over the decks and play a medley of electronic, techno, drum ’n bass, and Latin-inspired beats.

Don’t miss their famous Tuesday night party, “Techno Cafe.” And with many other quality line-ups, check their website for an up-to-date listing of who’s spinning when.

Mon Ami With you

A former pet care salon, Mon Ami has catered to a different kind of wild animal since opening in 2007. The small lifestyle emporium is outfitted with a bar, music shop and fashion studio to provide a panacea for all primal needs—a place to cure thirst, hunger, art, music, social exchange, creativity, warmth…well, you get the picture.

Plush sofa chairs are easy to sink back into, especially when grabbing a drink or a bite to eat—crusty pita sandwiches and soups (gluten-free and based on the five elements) are advisable picks. Come for the ambiance, or come for the chill-out grooves on Wednesdays at the Friendly Circle evening, hosted by the DJ-collective Groovebox.
