Vienna’s Finest After-Office Spots

4. März 2019

A classic after office meet up is the best way to reconnect with old work colleagues, good friends or simply meeting new people while relaxing after a busy day at the office. Indeed, sometimes it is just necessary to have a good glass of wine (or cocktail?) before heading home. Together with the mild and shy sunny days ahead, it is time to welcome some of the after-work events in Vienna that are already happening in town this season, plus some other cool hot spots that you should take note for the upcoming months.

#1 Kunstschatzi at the Kunsthistorisches Museum

Dear art lovers, this one’s for you. This event includes not only being surrounded by art and a tour of the highlights of their Collection but also: a cocktail bar and DJ-LineUp at the “Kuppelhalle”. This after-office begins this week and it goes on one Tuesday per month. Pssst… every Tuesday has its own theme, so make sure you check the information before you go.

Next date: Tuesday 23rd April (Theme: Farbe & Form) | Entry Price: 16 € p/p

#2 Ho[me]Office after work grand opening at 1o1 (One of One)

They are also opening this week… TODAY. After that, they will be hosting one event every Wednesday. Their special location is the 1o1 (One of One) at Seilerstätte 16. They will be opening their doors at 18:00 and closing them at nothing less than 2 am. Not bad at all. Their casual dress code is stylish and chic. Oh, and they will be offering welcome drinks!

Next date: Wednesday 6th March | Entry Price: Free!

#3 Büroschluss – The Real After Work Party at Le Meridien Vienna

Have you ever walked by Le Meridien and found a huge amount of people queuing up for no reason on a weekday? Well, here’s the reason why! Büroschluss happens every last Thursday of the month and the atmosphere is excellent. They call themselves “The Real After Work Party” because they have been doing it since 2013, so they surely have a bit of experience down the road. Opening at 18:00 until midnight. Pssst… you can also book a table or dining area in advance to make it a full experience.

Next date: Thursday 28th March | Entry Price: Free!

#4 Work-A-Tonic at the Hilton Vienna

You might know this classic event from other cities since Vienna is not the only one to host it. Munich also has one of their well-known Gin & Tonic After work events. In Vienna, it happens (usually) every second Thursday of the month. Pssst… Happy hour from 18:00 until 20:00 – Don’t be late!

Next date: Wednesday 20th March (Season Opening!) | Entry Price: Free!

#5 Afterwork at Sofiensäle

They are always the first ones to begin the after-office wave in Vienna since they usually start their events in January. Their after-work meetings are not as regular as other places since they happen every now and then. Pssst… You get one free drink if you register yourself between 18:00 and 19:00!

Next date: Thursday 28th March | Entry Price: Free!

#6 Thirsty Thursday / hosted by Punk’s Finest at 25hours Hotel’s rooftop

“Because no good story started with a salad…!” This is another great spot for an after-work meeting that we all love at mit Handkuss.

Next date: Every Thursday | Entry Price: Free!

#7 Networking-AfterWork at Albertina Passage

This after office spot features some old swing beats, hits from the beloved 80s and 90s AND a live-Saxophonist. Always lots of fun and perfect to dance a bit.

Next date: Thursday 7th March | Entry Price: Early bird from 18:00-19:00 2€ p/p. After that 10 € p/p

Also coming soon…

#8 The new „Aperitivo-Thursday” Pop-up-bar at Weltmuseum, Heldenplatz, 1010. Here you will be able to get homemade lemonades, cocktails and yummy Poke Bowls. Oh, and of course, background music which is always a must. Opening on April 30th!

#9 Also opening on June 15th is the Pop-Up-Bar “Freiluft – Die Stadtterrasse” at Herrengasse. As well as Robertos, Heuer am Karlplatz and Stadtbar, they will create their own signature drinks for everyone to try while relaxing after work.


Es geht wieder los mit den Afterwork-Events. Ein Zeichen, dass der Frühling naht. Wir haben uns umgeschaut, was so ansteht:

Einmal monatlich lädt das Kunsthistorische Museum zu Kunsterlebnis und Abendvergnügen ein (mit Cocktail Bar und DJ-LineUp) und an jedem letzten Donnerstag im Monat geht es rund beim “Büroschluss” im Le Meridien. Am 20. März ist Saisonauftakt für den Work-A-Tonic Klassiker im Hilton; bekannt aus anderen Ländern wie München & Co. Und die Sofiensäle haben ihre Saison bereits im Januar eingeläutet. Wer mit dem noch nicht genug hat, der freut sich auf den Dachboden im 25Hours Hotel oder das Networking Event in der Albertina Passage.

Besondere Vorfreude habe ich persönlich allerdings auf diese zwei Events:

Tipp 1: Urbanes Publikum, selbst gemachte Limonaden und Cocktails, leckere Poke Bowls und musikalische Begleitung … Die Heldenbar ab 30. April!

Tipp 2: Ab 15. Juni eröffnet die Pop-Up-Bar „Freiluft – Die Stadtterrasse“ im Hochhaus in der Herrengasse. Die Herrschaften der Bars, wie Robertos, Heuer am Karlsplatz und Stadtbar, werden jeweils einen Signature-Drink kreieren.
