Cafe Anno is a popular drinking joint for Viennese alternatives. Despite its location between bougie District 7 and upscale District 8, this is a dive bar of the best kind: low lights, wooden floors, maroon walls covered in posters, lots of intellectual types. It’s easy to love this place. Draft beers are notably delicious and affordable. Fans of foosball and darts can appropriate the designated room in the back. The music selections lean 1980s pop.
