Cafe Mante: "A quick beer before bed!" Vienna Nightlife Tip by SWFC_Fan
Vienna Nightlife: 264 reviews and 325 photos
I popped in to Cafe Mante for a quick beer on my first night in Vienna in January 2006.
After doing a lot of walking during the day, and having just enjoyed a nice meal at a nearby Japanese restaurant, I was ready for bed - and I figured a quick beer would help me to nod off!
I ordered my beer from the bar and, as I was coming to expect from my experience in Vienna, the barmaid spoke little if any English. "Ein gross bier, bitte" I asked. I'm not sure if that's 100% gramatically correct, but it did the trick and the barmaid produced a large (500ml) bottle of Wieselburger Gold beer (cost 2.30 Euros).
I took my beer and sat at a table by the large window, looking out at the snow falling on Favoritenstrasse and flicking through my guidebook to get some ideas for the next day's activities.
I was the only person sat in the front part of the bar, but there were numerous tables in the back of the bar (a dimly lit room) and I heard the unmistakeable sound of pool balls being unloaded from a pool table.
A laid-back, informal cafe with a small selection of bottled beers and a small food menu (mainly snacks).
Dress Code: There didn't appear to be one.
Directions: On the pedestrianised part of Favoritenstrasse, south of Sudtirolerplatz.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
