If you want to grab a drink or a bite to eat with some friends, this is the place for you. Especially in the summertime where you can sit outside without being engulfed by cigarette smoke, although establishments do offer non-smoking sections. It can be crowded and noisy and you might meet some drunken people, but hey, it comes with the territory. Some places offer live music too. The prices are according to Viennese standards, slightly on the high side but you can choose from a wide selection of pubs/restaurants/bars. Plus, it's really close to the Schwedenplatz U-Bahn, so you really don't have to take your car. Cheers!
