This favourite party spot on the Gürtel, a social hub near Währinger Straße, attracts a bouncy young crowd looking for long drinks, a sexy atmosphere and a good time. Gaggles of girls and excitable young men spill out onto the street in the evenings as handbag house pounds away inside. It gets rammed on weekends, but on a strip already packed with clubs and bars, it’s popular for a good reason. The vibe is buzzing and the decor is bright, cheerful and vibrant. Decently priced drinks are in plentiful supply, from wine and beer to vodka shots and a variety of mixers. Flashy bartenders knock up cocktails with considerable visual flair and a great deal of talent, chucking shakers and bottles around as if they’re in an Eighties buddy movie. Every night Kju’s clientele hit the dance floor with energy and passion, trying out their best moves as they look to impress the nearest guy or girl. There are various special promotions and discounts on drinks depending on the day, and themed nights Ladies Only, Disco are all the rage. The venue also hosts regular poker tournaments and other events guaranteed to pull in crowds with deep pockets and money to spend. This is the place to go if you’re looking to let your hair down, knock back a few drinks and dance like a maniac to throbbing house music and RnB beats. It’s not the most stylish of Vienna’s bars, true, but in terms of party spirit, this one wins hands down.
