Vienna is home to bars, cafés and restaurants of kaleidoscopic quality and quantity. It’s easy to get sucked into one neighborhood or district and end up buying drinks at that lackluster smelly Irish pub that everyone knows and feels safe at because they all know what an “Irish pub” is.
Also ALSO as a bewildered visitor here it is near impossible to navigate away from the well-worn places that everyone directs you to. Get. off. the. beaten. path. Vienna has over 1.4 bajillion places to go and get a coffee or a drink. Places hidden off side streets, places right under the nose of the tourist landmarks.
