Wandering down Gumpendorfer on a late, breezy afternoon, we peered into a dim doorway and a monster stared back at us!

What is this place?? Gallery, Attraction, Curiosity Shoppe, kink  Museum ??

Better then – and in its way, including all of the above – we found ourselves in a  very stylish cocktail bar!

Quite beautiful in design, by co-owners Tzou Lubroth Architects, and named after the Bob Dylan song, the bar is quite a relaxing hangout in the afternoon.  Drinks are served with style and taste in crystal vessels, finished and garnished in true mixologist fashion.

Rumor has it on weekends that place can get a bit active.  We have to check out before we comment; but if we judge by the surrounds, it could be quite the happening scene!

Across from fabled Café Sperl;  If Dogs Run Free is a nice part of an afternoon itinerary of moseying down the picturesque local Gumpendorfer Straße!

Miniscule but grand, intimate yet expansive, Loos Bar American plays on an optical trick of parallel mirrors endlessly reflecting  the onyx balustrades and reddish Skyros marble of the high ceiling. The actual bar is only 4.45m (14′) wide by 6.15 (20′) long

This dark, alluring, smoke filled bar, designed in 1908 by Adolf Loos,  is a must for architecture lovers and drinkers alike.

The venerable bar is not very easy to find in the warmer months as the sign is lost in a flock of giant parasols, and the outside tables are overlay branded with modern mundane logos; not deserving of this aesthetic jewel that is Loos Bar American.

The “American Bar” is an original nod to its original concept – being an American style cocktail bar in this city of Coffee Houses.  Keep an eye out to the back wall, where there is a portrate of writer Peter Altenberg; close friend of Adolf Loos.

In the very chic neighborhood of Condesa, in a lovely space – originally designed in 1939 by architect Luis Barragan – one finds the cute Bonito Pop Food.

The entry is dominated by a lovely mural with sculpted ceramic birds, making way into four individual spaces: an intimate hidden at a corner, a second floor with windows overlooking the main patio, a 2nd patio with very tall ceiling – head here for a  super decked bar with an amazing variety of Mezcal (including our favorite Mezcal Rojo Corazón) and many tequilas – and finally a terrace at the back of the venue with full view.

Bonito Pop food is a good place to go for drinks; but like many places in DF you are asked to consume food as well due to the liquor license laws.   It seems that acquiring a bar license is much more difficult then a restaurant with liqueur permit.

The menu here is not the most exciting – centering around burgers, pastas, pizzas, salads, sandwiches and a few Mexican classics – but the service is warm and welcoming .   There are certainly worse places to while away an afternoon!

Only a block away from the Opera (the opposite direction from the Callas)  the Művész Kávéház  smolders in  the atmosphere of an authentic eastern European coffee house- which it has been from 1899.   The ambiance is complete with its tall-smoky ceilings, dim golden light and crystal chandeliers.  Upon entry you will find, in the first room, a small bar with a nice selection of aperitifs.   Passing to the second room , you encounter a desert display with a diverse selection of delicious treats.

Stopping in the lovely Művész Kávéház coffee house before or after the Opera is a wonderful plan.  The desserts are amazing and during the warmer months, the outdoor seating is quite pleasant.

Getting there is very easy as it is quite close to the M1 Opera metro stop, or via the Trolley-bus.
