Zum Schwarzen Kameel is a staple in Vienna’s 1st district, a classic bar that dates back to 1618. The intimate decor and outdoor seating options draw many happy hour patrons and locals at all hours of the day – just beware the bar closes at 7pm daily and is, disappointingly, not open on Sundays.
Zum Schwarzen Kameel offers a fantastic wine list with moderate pricing options. While we were there we selected older vintages of German Rieslings (1992 Dr. Loosen/1993 Joh. Jos. Prüm) that were priced at only 75€/bottle.
Obviously, the bar also offers a fantastic variety of Austrian wines by the glass and bottle as well as a selection of beer and delectable canapes. This was a perfect spot for an afternoon glass of wine before moving on for the evening and a wonderful experience of authentic Austrian culture.
When in Vienna, definitely seek it out.
