Vienna has a wonderfully lively, cool cocktail bar scene. Every time we are there, we try to visit as many as possible.
Below is a list of bars we can recommend, some of which we have collaborated with for the creation of bespoke cocktails for our partner brands.
The list is work in progress and every growing as we taste our way through Austria’s capital. You can find even more inspiration, stories, and snaps from our Viennese bar crawls on @fabdrinx!
01. Truth & Dare, Schönlaterngasse 4, 1010 Vienna
Truth and Dare is located in the heart of the city of Vienna. Motto: “We do not serve what you can have everywhere – we’d rather dare you to try something new. Of course, we can mix your favorite classic, but hey: Dare to dare yourself!”
The team around David Kranabitl and Dominik Möller serves fantastic concoctions that delight cocktail lovers, party people, and connoisseurs alike. Weekly changing “minis” tickle your taste buds and make you want to order more! Nice popup rooftop terrace during summer!
Mixology awarded the Truth & Dare Bar “Best Bar Austria 2023”.

02. Underdog Bar, Schlösselgasse 24, 1080 Wien
Motto: Underdog – A Team that is expected to lose. When the Underdog wins, the outcome of his victory is even bigger.
Drinks menu: classics with a twist and signature drinks such as the “Underdog Sour” with gin and pomegranate. The hot dogs are far from the simple sausage in a bun. Oh no! They are creative, happy and hearty. Also in vegan Rebel Meat version! Underdog Catering: Carefree moments at Vienna’s first bar with cocktail and hot dog catering! Plastic-free events including environmental and waste concept.

03. Matiki, Gardegasse 2/4, 1070 Wien, Austria
In 2017, Arik and Matty Vinnitski, two Belgian-Ukrainian brothers, brought the first tiki project to the booming bar scene of Vienna.
In this buzzing cocktail bar in the seventh district, you won’t find kitschy tiki, but classy tiki! The small room in the Gardegasse counts 38 seats and reflects the founders’ love for all things Tiki. You wouldn’t guess it walking up to Matiki but the bar exudes summer!
A colourful cocktail menu with cute illustrations, busty ladies as glasses, waiters who wear Hawaiian shirts and, of course, super cool cocktails. The Vinnitski’s run their bar with great attention to detail and ample know-how. Matty has already mixed at If Dogs run free and at the Miranda Bar. A special highlight: the funny cocktail cups reminiscent of Venus von Willendorf and popcorn as a bar snack.
Open Monday-Thursday, 18.00-02.00, Friday-Saturday, 18.00-03.00. T: +43 (0)6608254576, E: firstname.lastname@example.org
