Directions to Vienna Gürtel - Red Light, Green Light
You would not think this area is particularly attractive or even scenic....the Gürtel (belt-road) is one of the busiest roads in Vienna and also where the subway runs right along a viaduct system. And right there, you will find the coolest bars and pubs the city offers these days.
The arches and stations were designed by Jugendstil architect Otto Wagner, and now the arches between Thaliastrasse and Nussdorferstrasse are home to great music venues. Noise is not an issue here, as all music and chatter is swallowed by heavy traffic, so bands and DJs can go wild - this is really a special place. In the summer the party moves out into the pavement cafés – the whole night!
Which bars to visit here: Chelsea - a great place! Its owner was a professional football player. He put everything on one card and opened up this bar in what before still was a red-light district. He invited live bands and DJs which immediately became very popular among locals. Another huge difference to the others: it is the only place that has no glass façade - so nobody can see what is going on inside.
A more stylish choice would be the Q [kju:]-Bar - very well known for excellent party atmosphere and delicious drinks served to the sound of house and RnB.
A bit more on the relaxed side: the Shiraz - boasting an oriental atmosphere with water pipes and fine wines.
An alternative choice, for people who like to alternate a night watching a short-film together with others and a night dancing to any music style, is The Loft. This club plays from hip-hop, to acoustic, to electronic music.
