Tucked below the streets of Vienna, Krypt Bar occupies a forgotten 18th-century cellar. The underground space was rediscovered during the renovations of the surrounding building after a sealed doorway uncovered a hidden lair. Accessed by a set of floating stairs, the large archways and exposed brickwork remain, creating a dramatic backdrop for the marble floors and gold finishes. Drinks are served at a 20-foot walnut bar while surrounding alcoves provide private booths. Along with the lounge, the area is also host to the city's smallest art gallery.
