Schikadener Bar

Located along the lively Margaretenstraße in Vienna’s District 4, Schikaneder is a grungy bar attached to the neighboring art cinema, Schikadener Kino. It’s all about the crowd here, which is young and cool and artistic and alternative. Friday and Saturday nights are especially fun. Also: Cheap booze and toasted sandwiches served with a generous side of ketchup. Enough said.
