In the film Before Sunrise, shot entirely in Vienna, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpi go to a record store where they flick through records and listen to some in a small booth at the end of the store. The store still exists and is called Teuchtler. It sells rare and old records and still has the listening booth at the end of the store. The store is tiny inside and has a very antique feel about it.
Teuchtler Schallplaten handlung Record store is located at: 10 Windmuhlgasse, off Mariahilfer Strasse, the most commercial street in Vienna.
A unique British gastropub. Friendly locals of all nationalities, fantastic music and food with a cosy atmosphere. Live music at weekends from September 2008. It won't be long before you find yourself talking to Elaine and Shuki the owners. You might pop in for one but you'll end up staying until closing time (it's that welcoming)!

For a fun afternoon in Vienna, nothing will beat the Haus Der Musik. For those with and without musical prowess, this music museum-cum-musical playground allows you to explore the science and history of music without the need for a PhD.
See the colour and shape of your voice, play giant instruments or even conduct a virtual orchestra - a museum with a difference, definitely.
Wide variety of musical styles offered in this superbly renovated concert house with three halls. Appreciate the view of ornate ceiling from the balcony. Stay on for a meal after the concert – I recommend “Trios Grande” (four small dishes) having prefaced the concert with a glass or three of sekt and some pumpkin seed bread.
The State Opera House. If you're too late to buy tickets for a performance, don't miss the opportunity to take a guided tour of this fascinating building. Bombed in world war two, it was rebuilt almost exactly as it was in the 19th-century.
Opernring 2. Nearest metro station: Karlsplatz. Nearest tram: Oper
Flex has a massive soundsystem - the best in town, maybe the best in continental Europe. And of course, a massive line-up as well: big names and local heroes, everybody plays this venue. You like dub, rock, punk, breakbeats, hiphop, pop, etc? This is your place in Vienna!
Delightful, intimate Sala Terrena decorated with frescos. Mozart Ensemble perform daily, often to small audiences, which makes it appear that they are performing just for you.
Singerstrasse (two minutes from Stephansplatz);
This club hosts big drum and bass nights as well as punk and rock concerts. The special thing about it is its remarkable history as it used to be a former slaughterhouse where free parties and festivals were held in the 70s. When the Viennese government tried to rebuild the site and turn it into offices, people occupied the sight for years and as a result it is now an official club with real ambience hosting some of Vienna’s best nights - even better than the famous Flex.
In the third district just a short walk from the U3 'Edberg' station
