“He who does not enjoy drinking, he is a fool” said the Greek poet Euripides some two and a half thousand years ago. Only a two-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the First American Bar in the historic center of Vienna does not just prepare first-class drinks, but also serves a heart-warming dose of joie de vivre with each of their classic cocktails and their own creations. In addition, the cocktail bar is one of the best bars in the city when it comes to gin, rum and whisk (e) y specialties. The choice is extensive, the drinks menu as well. The First American Bar is also a visual treat: the portal and the windows are by star architect Hans Hollein. Inside, the cocktail bar offers a refined ambience with a smoking area and a non-smoking lounge. These are accompanied by good jazz, blues and soul.
COCKTAILS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD IN THE HEART
The First American Bar in the first district, 1010 Vienna, Schulerstraße 16, is proud to be ranked among the best cocktail bars in Austria by its many regular guests from home and abroad. In addition to the cocktails and drinks from all over the world, since 2018 the bar has also proved to be the ideal place for professional whiskey, gin and rum tastings in Vienna. During the approximately two-hour tastings in the Lounge Room of the Viennese Kult-Bar, up to 70 participants (minimum number: 10 people) will learn in a fun way much worth knowing about the diversity of variants, the history and the stories as well as the production of the various premium spirits. Incidentally, the lounge can also be used for events and parties. And since humans do not just live by cocktails and drinks alone, the good food is not too short. On request, the bar team will serve delicious finger food for every drink.
