Nightlife in Salzburg – Turn night into day!

Nightlife in Salzburg stands for cosy pubs in winding alleys, bars behind venerable facades and trendy clubs. Salzburg nightlife takes place mainly in the immediate surroundings of the Old Town. Beer taverns invite to a cosy get-together and later on to celebrate at „in“ pubs and bars. Dance-crazed folk and sports bar friends, pub addicts and Latin lovers, they all find the opportunity to turn night into day in Salzburg.

Party mile Rudolfskai – Old Town on left-side riverbank

The locations in the Old Town on the Salzachkai (left-side river bank) are notorious. Here you can enjoy Irish flair door-to-door at Shamrock and O’Malley’s or you opt for the young scene at the rustic City Alm. Other hot spots are the Vis-à-Vis, the Riverside, Apo or the American Bar „Roses“. 

The Republic on Anton-Neumayer-Platz is definitely one of the epicenters of Salzburg event culture. International bands and DJs take turns for events, such as Salsa Night and clubbings in the style of the eighties. Only a few steps further on, the “Flip” caters for its guests with cocktails. At the “Take Five” – a club of the upmarket category – champagne is waiting for VIPs. Right next door, at the Half Moon people shake the dance floor with hip-hop and RnB on Fridays, and Electro and House Music on Saturdays. Round the corner, along the quay, you can spend time with friends in a cosy ambiance at the Glüxfall Café Bar. To satisfy your hunger late at night, the best tip is a visit to the “Würstelkönigin” sausage kiosk, on Hanuschplatz– a Salzburg institution. 

The area around Steingasse

Turning to the right-side bank of the Salzach, you have a choice between Steingasse and Kai. The former is one of the most intriguing alleys of the Old Town and there you find eateries, bars and bistros galore, such as the Pepe Cocktailbar, the Shrimpsbar or the “Seitensprung”. 

Following the quay, you will get to Daimler’s Bar & Grill, a good place for food and drink. Visit the Monkeyscafe.bar for cocktails or the watzmanncultbar.lounge.garden, the Nordstern or the Segabar.
