Over the past few years, Vienna’s gay party and club scene has developed at tremendous speed. Today, party organizers provide night clubbers with a great variety of groundbreaking events to choose from.
Long live Heaven Vienna! Miss Candy, Austria‘s well-known drag queen and initiator of diverse party institutions, brings you the latest in house music, disco sounds and garage beats for a sweltering atmosphere among party-goers. www.heaven.at
The Why Not opens its doors each Friday and Saturday. The relatively small downtown gay club has been around for many years. It still busts out of its seams each weekend. Expect a hot night on the dance floor where all the popular house and dance hits are playing. www.why-not.at
homoriental. The party continues to be equally geared to gays and lesbians. The atmosphere at the club is relaxed and, as the name implies, inspired by oriental music. http://homoriental.wordpress.com
DRAMA! is not only the name but also the motto of a quarterly event at the Ottakringer Brewery. The event is literally high drama, so expect to wear high party fashion. It is one of the biggest and trendiest spectacles of the city and magically attracts gays and lesbians with a mixture of glamour and celebrities. www.dramaclub.at
G.Spot. This monthly party at the Camera Club appeals mostly to lesbians and gay friends. The focus of the music keeps changing from electronic to house, tribal, techno and other welcome diversions of the typical gay and lesbian club music. www.gspot.at
queer:beat. Gays, lesbians and friends can dance away to indie rock, electronic and chart music here. Four DJs on two dance floors fill the Viper Room with sound for the young and dance-crazy crowd. www.queerbeat.at
Vienna has its first Bear & Butch club in the form of the Pitbull. Since its opening in 2009, the Pitbull team has provided sweat-producing beats for that pure testosterone rush. www.pitbull-clubbing.at
