Aurora Rooftop Bar - Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere

Located on the 16th floor, the Nordic-designed Aurora Roof Top Bar offers stunning views of Vienna, which guests can enjoy while snuggling next to the open fire pit or listening to DJ sounds late into the evening. It is a modern swanky rooftop hangout for modern Viennese folks with sharing plates, craft cocktails & panoramic city views.

One lovely evening, I dragged one of my best pals in Austria, Bernhard, who works with a well-know Austrian winery, Weinrieder, in Poydorf to join me for a catchup and chillax session at this amazing venue, a rooftop that faces the Belvedere Museum and well nestled in the heart of the 10th District in Vienna, that shares its presence along with the Park Apartments Am Belvedere and an entire commercial and residential enclave within Vienna, and one of the heaviest populated district in Vienna.

In close proximity to Belvedere Palace, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere showcases contemporary local art and design that immerse you in the history of Prince Eugene, as well as the city of Vienna. Their awareness of the precious yet limited resources of our earth have led them to develop environmentally friendly concepts, in both our cuisine and in the experiences we offer, as well as in their event planning. Their focus, therefore, is on sustainability and foresight, and this is pretty apparent in their main hotel, their lobby area and also in their Aurora Rooftop bar.

Inspired by the word Aurora, the Northern Lights, the bar offers iconic, Nordic design, a warm, welcoming ambience with an open fireplace, and a spacious rooftop terrace with starlit views. The Rooftop Bar has its own entrance and lift that will take you directly

to the 16th floor. From there you not only enjoy a unique view over Vienna, but also exceptional cocktail creations, inspired by the countries of Scandinavia; we sampled various different cocktails and also took in the scenic view of the Belvedere environs along with the commercial and residential buildings in this 10th District.

The use of natural materials, such as various types of wood, and the warm ambience all reflect Nordic design. Details play an important part in every furniture piece, quality is evident in the different treatments of wood, integrated wardrobe and hidden technical features. The design, which features a soft colour palate of natural shades, frames a beautiful view over Vienna. Therefore, the hight of the furniture and design elements are thought out in a way so every guest has a beautiful view from any seating area outside. The bar resembles stacked wood outside a cabin and, with the seagull like lamps, it brings in a metaphorical breeze from the sea.

The elegant modern ambience is complemented by the warmth the two fire places bring, one inside, one on the terrace. A fireplace must not be missed in any Scandinavian house, bringing warmth into dark winter nights. Through the designed layout of the sitting areas on the large terrace, the guests can enjoy the beautiful view over the city all year long. The same love for raw natural materials as in the bar overflows into the terrace and creates a warm cosy welcoming atmosphere.

For the Bar Snacks, we had the Beef Carpaccio which came with truffles, shallots and almond; we also sampled the Red Prawn with Smoked Rice, Sesame and Yuzu Kosho' along came the Beef Chuck Sandwich with Caramelized Onion, Cheddar and Chipotle Mayo and also the Beef Tartare with Orange, Shallots and Sour Dough Bread - truly exquisite with that Norwegian influence and befitting for snack food at this lovely bar.

A truly wholesome and holistic culinary experience! Aurora is truly chic and trendy in atmosphere and setting, and it has truly become one of Vienna's hot spots for fine drinks and great views. Usually surrounded with lounge tunes from DJs, the rooftop works great for afternoon or evening drinks and it was totally vibrant, very active and full of guests when we were there! Here's a nice shot of our host at the Aurora Rooftop Bar!
