Unique Factor: A bit of mystery surrounds this cocktail place, given that in order to be let in you have to ring a bell, pass a glass door and go down some stairs before you find yourself in front of bar that aspires to look like a crypt.
Word on the street has it that this is one of the most unique bars in town. We’re not going to confirm, or refute that claim, but rather tell you some special deets’ about it. You have to ring a bell to get into Krypt, at which point you’ll be let in by some handsome bouncer. Give him a kiss on the cheek (this part isn’t obligatory, but we tend to do it anyway) and through you go, into a glass door and down some elegant stairs. At the bottom (or in the crypt), there’s a bar that’ll make you feel like you’re anywhere but in Vienna. Most of the place is made out of marble, while dark wood and bold paintings make up the rest of the eye-catching elements that keep your eyes busy. While the cocktails are pricey, you pay for what you get – the selection is vast and the drinks are damn tasty, and they won’t be what you expect.
