Hannah Lewis,

Vienna’s central area is compact enough to be explored on foot, so why not make the most of the warm summer evenings with a stroll to discover some of the city’s best bars? Whatever your drink of choice, there is something for everyone in the Austrian capital, from simple aperitifs to extravagant cocktails. As well as unmissable local beers and wines, there is also a wide range of delicious soft drinks available, from firm favourites to surprising inventions.

The city’s best bars stand out as much for their charming décor and welcoming atmosphere as their drinks menus. Vienna is a stylish city and its best-loved bars offer everything from 19th-century grandeur to specially commissioned contemporary art. Start at a rooftop venue and take in the impressive cityscape, before rounding off the evening with a nightcap somewhere cosy.
