A true hipster paradise, this oversized corner store in the heart of Vienna’s bougie District 7 is home to a specialty café, an eco-friendly designer clothing store, and a tailoring workshop. The polished inside features Alvar Aalto-inspired midcentury chairs, overhead spotlights, lots of concrete, wood, and greenery. The designer items, mainly backpacks and men’s clothing, come with carefully labeled origin and sustainability tags. All this can feel comically exaggerated or adorably exemplary; I’m in the latter camp here. And coffee is excellent.
