Stylish bar, lounge and nightclub

This chic lounge and bar sports a sleek and spacious interior with large picture windows. Exclusive leather and wood furnishing conspire to create an ambience where the young and beautiful come to mingle, see and be seen. By day this cafe-lounge is an excellent place to escape the bustle of Mariahilferstrasse, and sit back and relax for a while. On Sundays an exquisite brunch buffet can be had (reservations are strongly recommended; the best time to come is around noon when main courses and desserts are served in addition to breakfast fare). My favorite is the Asian bean spout salad with a hint of cilantro. 
Trade in hot coffee for superbly mixed cocktails as night falls - "Jazz Club" beckons with ginger beer, lime and a hint of fresh mint and is simply divine.
Thumbs up also for the state-of-the-art ventilation system that helps to appease smokers and non-smokers alike.

Nightclubs in Vienna are still a non-smokers nightmare. Completely smoke-free clubs remain a distant dream.
aeroSoul, a recently launched non-smoking clubbing event, offers a glimmer of hope though. Dance and breathe the night away at Lutz - die bar (dance club in the basement), when the dance floor remains strictly free of smoke, unless it comes from the smoke machine.
