MY Town // Swede:art Presents Vienna

March 28, 2013

“My Town” is a new feature wherein friends and family from around the world give us the lowdown on their home town – favourite bars, restaurants, record shops and more. Forget Time Out – this is the only city guide you need.

Next Up, Brownswood familia Joachim Prügl takes us around Vienna.

Tell us where you like to….

Chill out:

Alte Donau, killer spot for for a quick swim in the summer and for chilling.

For me Fluc Wanne is the best place in Vienna, if you really want to go raving. It’s the best atmosphere somehow with a nice sound system located in a subway beneath a big road. You can look down to the dance floor through a window from outside, which makes the night somehow accessible to strangers and observers as well. Had definitely one of my most fun Djing nights there as well.
Eat & Drink :

1)  If you wanna have your best pizza experience ever go to That’s Amore,

2) Brillantengrund is a wicked cafe/restaurant/hotel with great food and drinks.

Where is the best place to buy music?

Definitely Teuchtler in Windmühlgasse 10 – really nice recordstore.

What¹s the local expression/saying?

Haha there are many. Unfortunately I am not able to adopt this accent, since I am not actually from Vienna but imagine all Viennese people say “Backhendelfriedhof”, “Fotzhobel”, “Gfraßtsackl”, “Haberer” all day..

don’t know if it make sense to tell you what all that means though.

Sum up your town in three words

cosy, amicable and a bit complaining

What¹s the best local delicacy/street food/snack?

A “Eitrige” (= cheese cransky)

Who is the best local talent in your area?

Uh, there are definitely many. I don’t know if it still makes sense to talk about Oliver Dorian Concept, but I think in terms of music, he is definitely the biggest talent from Vienna in many respects. No doubt.
