Gay Vienna

Gay life in the city

Although the gay scene in Vienna is more low-key than in other European capitals nearby such as Berlin, it's still a very tolerant and open city with a number of gay and lesbian attractions.
One of them is the Regenbogen Parade (the gay pride or Rainbow Parade) that takes over the center of the city at the end of June, the same month when Identities - Queer Film Festival takes place. The one-month-long gay and lesbian art event WIEN IST ANDERSRUM is also in June, while the AIDS charity Life Ball takes place in May.
During the rest of the year you'll still find plenty to do at one of the bars and expecially at one of the city's fun gay clubs. Here is all you need to know:



Café Willendorf
This is Vienna's most popular café-restaurant, serving good food at a good price, many of them vegetarian dishes.

Goldener Spiegel
An institution and a true Viennese experience. It serves Austrian cuisine in a room decorated with old photos and furnishings, where the local gay guys chat through the night.

Felixx Bar
Gay guys of all ages love this space, furnished in a classic Viennese style. Drink under the chandeliers on any regular fun night or during one of the special events often held here.

Mango Bar
Cool modern bar for trendy young guys to meet. It's mostly crowded between 11PM and 1AM.

Club Why Not
The city's hottest gay parties take place at this long-running club. Relax at the chill out bar or join the other guys on one of its two dancefloors.

Heaven
Love house music? Love boys? You'll be in heaven at this club, especially when it gets filled to capacity on Saturday nights.

RESTAURANTS


Stöger Restaurant
This very gay-friendly restaurant has a traditional Viennese menu served in a cosy space or at the tables outside.

SAUNAS


Kaiserbründl
Set in a Moorish-style building, this beautiful sauna is Vienna's most famous. There is also a bar and a "chill out" area.

LESBIANS


Frauencafé
This café-bar has been a hit with the ladies for some time now. And that's ladies only!
