if dogs run free has been heavily featured recently on my facebook page. it’s because it quickly became one of my favourite hang out places in vienna!
and how can one not like it? i mean, just look at it!
the cocktail bar has 5 co-owners (an actress, a restaurateur, a graphic designer, and two architects). they decided to design and launch it together. the architects are gregorio s. lubroth and chieh-shu tzou aka tzou lubroth architekten.

this cocktail bar is on gumpendorfer strasse 10, withing walking distance from naschmarkt and the museum quartier. it’s quite hidden and minimal. if it wasn’t for that ceiling, of course! that completely transforms the place!
i was there 2 out of my 3 nights in vienna. i had my regular: bailey’s and milk. i picked up their cool post cards and even one coaster. they seem to be drawn with blue ballpoint pen. an interesting effect!
when they opened, in 2012, they said they intended to change the ceiling on an yearly basis. they haven’t changed the original designed by the owners so far and i’m grateful. but i am looking forward to the next look!
they have ocassional events, such as vintage sales or guest mixologists. find them online on their website or facebook page.
if you are in vienna, just go there for a drink! you will not regret it!
