The best restaurants for the wedding reception in Vienna

Fortunately, Vienna offers an incredible selection of excellent restaurants for the Polterabend. Because at the poltergeist should not only fit the food, but also the atmosphere. While a polter-crew hardly attracts negative attention in a beer garden like the Schweizerhaus, it would probably cause more disturbed looks in a chic-micki store.

So, when organizing a bachelorette party, choosing the right venue is an important factor. Here, as an organizer, it is best to follow the taste of the bride or groom. Has the groom been a vegan since he was three years old? Then a steak is probably not the right thing.

So here we have collected the best venues for the bachelor party sorted by category for you – so you have a good base!

Steak & burger venues for the bachelor party

A steak is the perfect base for a bachelor party

FRANK’S American Bar & Restaurant

Frank’s impresses not only with its brilliant location directly at Schwedenplatz, but especially with the food. From sinfully expensive dry-aged beef to affordable burgers made with the finest Angus beef, you can eat it all here. The ambience in the historic vaulted cellar offers a dreamlike atmosphere.

After dinner, you can also enjoy an excellent gin and tonic here before heading on foot to the nearby Bermuda Triangle, where the bachelor party can then really take off.

Address: Laurenzerberg 2, 1010 Vienna

Rocky Docky Western Steakhouse

Less central, but just as tasty: Rocky Docky is a true classic among Vienna’s steakhouses. In the rustic ambience, it is best to treat yourself to one of the many steaks, the price-performance ratio here is really excellent.

Getting there by public transport is a bit of a hassle. Here you either take the U3 to Ottakring station or the 43er Bim to Wattgasse station. After a 10-minute walk, you can be there – or you can simply take an uber or a cab.

Address: Rückertgasse 39, 1060 Vienna
Price range: €€

Mom and the cop

Here you can get the best flat iron steak in Vienna – a fantastic piece of meat if you prepare it right. Mom can. Or she has the right cops available – we don’t know. But what we do know: Here you can get delicious burgers, steaks and a lot of alcohol – a great place for the bachelor party in Vienna.

The central location in the 1st district of Vienna and the good connection with the U3 within walking distance are a real advantage. This makes the Mama and the Bull an excellent starting point for any bar tour.

The fuel for any wedding reception is beer. And there’s plenty of beer at Hawidere: in addition to the 14 draft beers, there are 41 bottled beers. So that you don’t lose track, the waiters are happy to explain which beer goes with which of the excellent burgers.

Beef & Glory

The Beef & Glory in the 8th district has been voted one of the 100 best steakhouses in the world – what else is there to say. Here you can get everything you need to indulge your meat cravings and really treat yourself.

The bar is also excellently assorted, so that no wishes remain unfulfilled. The location in the 8th district is nice and central and well connected, the ambience upscale. But beware: The prices are not from bad parents – quality just has its price.

Austrian venues for the bachelor party


The Schweizerhaus is a true Viennese classic: located in the Prater, you will find one of the oldest and most beautiful beer gardens in Vienna. Even in midsummer, it’s nice and shady and cool under the trees. The freshly tapped Budweiser tastes best this way. In summer, the Schweizerhaus is a real recommendation as a restaurant for the bachelor party.

In the Schweizerhaus you must try the crispy stilt. Also the Grillhendln are not from bad parents. Tip: Write down how much beer you drink – in larger groups we sometimes had problems with the billing.

Tip: After the meal with the ride with the extasy helps digestion. Or in losing weight.
