American Bar

Japanese gin and the local Sporer Bitter are no contradiction at Stani Fürst and Attila Szelhoffer. From their own sodas (Melon-Gaudi) to spicy syrups, they are dedicated to expanding their guests' taste buds. From Spritz, rethought, to the Punch Bowl for sharing: Schallmoos is ready!

Schallmooser Hauptstraße 10a, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Lounge Bar

The creative slogans on the slate at Platzl bring a smile to the faces of guests and passers-by alike. The bar team knows what it's doing - whether classic or more unusual, such as the Old Cuban Champagne cocktail. In summer, the garden opposite the Staatsbrücke is a meeting place for guests and locals alike.

Steingasse 1, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Bar

There is also a new cocktail menu for the reopening of the luxury resort. It features a number of key cocktails and many excellent specials and signatures. Refreshingly different: the Caramba with tequila, passoã, grapefruit and salt. The high-quality non-alcoholic variants (Hibiscus Fizz) are also impressive.

Unterbergstraße 65, 5611 Großarl, Austria
Lounge Bar

In the Madreiter family's extravagant but very cozy "living room", everything revolves around first-class drinks and spirits. The latter include their own house brand, "Lions Spirits", created by Siegfried Herzog. But the selection of aperitifs and digestifs, cocktails, whisk(e)y, rum and gin is also impressive.

Leogang 119, 5771 Leogang, Austria
Lounge Bar

Exceptional, stylish, sophisticated: on the upper floor of the Hangar-7 Gesamtkunstwerk, guests are treated to exclusive cocktails and drinks, such as signatures like the Pink Lady with Hangar-7's own gin and grapefruit liqueur. The selected classics are just as impressive as (sparkling) wine cocktails and virgins.

Wilhelm-Spazier-Straße 7a, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Bar

Perhaps the most beautiful bar menu in the country brings together Daniel Hatzer's own creations. The "essences of the surroundings" always play a leading role, including those from senior manager Ella Altenberger's herb garden. The signature cocktail remains the "Birchwood Negroni" with its smoky, tart-sweet flavour profile.

Rain 6, 5771 Leogang, Austria
Hotel Bar

Elegant, airy and feel-good: The bar in the nature, design & wellness hotel plays all the tunes. This also applies to the wine selection (450 labels). The cocktails from the expert bar team offer a wide variety of signatures, which are refined with homemade herbal syrups and essences from the region.

Haltestellenweg 23, 5630 Bad Hofgastein, Austria
Hotel Bar

Amadeus meets agave! Bar manager Andreas Portz shows off his skills with drinks such as the "Strawberry Fields forever" (mezcal and buttermilk!). The pistachio-chocolate-vodka mix "The Mozart Identity" indulges the genius loci of Salzburg. Even society appreciates the bold concept in this dignified space: cocktail festivals all year round!

Schwarzstraße 5-7, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Bar

You don't even know where to look first: the design of the bar is extraordinary, the view of nature through the large glass windows is impressive. The cocktails from the experienced bar team are also a feast for the eyes, such as the signature drinks inspired by the Alps, like the "A & O" with rum, Almdudler and thyme.

Rain 9, 5771 Leogang, Austria
Hotel Bar

The Kamin- & Hotelbar in the gourmet hotel is a popular place to go for a sophisticated aperitif as well as a digestive or cocktail. Thanks to host and sommelier Robert Rettenwender, the wines on offer are top quality, and the cocktails - from classic to exotic - are also sure to impress.

Alpendorf 1, 5600 St. Johann im Pongau, Austria
Hotel Bar

Guests at the botanical bar are given hemp drops to combat stress as well as an "overdose of vacation". The latter tastes of elderflower and is one of bar manager Tom Fix's own creations. As head mixologist, he even gives the good old margarita the taste of "Loigom" aka Leogang.

Hütten 2, 5771 Leogang, Austria
American Bar

The small, charming vaulted cellar opposite the Pferdeschwemme has become a popular meeting place. The young team around Sebastian Kowatz likes to incorporate regional ingredients into the expertly mixed drinks, which are also visually appealing. Even connoisseurs are impressed by the wines - including advice from the sommelier.

Herbert-von-Karajan-Platz 1, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Lounge Bar

In the mountains of Leogang, the focus is on imaginative signatures, such as "High Mountains" with apricot brandy and apple flavour, as well as modern interpretations of classics such as Espresso Martini with Kahlua. The pleasure experience is rounded off with gin and tonics, natural wines, long drinks and sours as well as high-quality spirits.

Hütten 37, 5771 Leogang, Austria
Hotel Bar

Inside or outside? Not an easy decision with the beautifully staged, cozy bar area of the 4-star superior hotel. Timeless classics are mixed with expertise and promise visual and taste highlights. The friendly team is well-versed and happy to accommodate guests' cocktail requests.

Josef-Hauthaler-Straße 2, 5071 Wals, Austria
Lounge Bar

For seven years now, this small, fine bar has been making a splash and serving good drinks under the rocky roof. Mentor and his team add local colour with the Sporer spirits from the nearby Getreidegasse. The living room atmosphere is also more experimental with tea cocktails and the odd classic twist.

Gstättengasse 3, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Bar

With a view of the fortress and old town, this is the perfect place to end the day. Among the recommendations are specials such as "Salzburg Lemonade" with bourbon and St. Germain liqueur. The selection of Champagne is particularly large, but you can also choose from the (high-quality) full range of high-proof spirits.

Giselakai 3–5, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Hotel Bar

The dialectal pronunciation of Leogang - Loigam - is reflected in the name of the gin and other in-house specialties in the bar located in the middle of the room. The recipes (rum-mango lassi) and the names of the drinks are just as witty and relaxed. How about a "Guaten Mama" after the Asitz summit storm?

Sonnberg 252, 5771 Leogang, Austria

A real institution in the city of Mozart. The quaint bar with a medieval flair has many regulars. This is down to the long-standing boss Stillianos "Stelios" Issaris - and the solid quality of the predominantly classic cocktails and drinks. There is also bar food, and on weekends there is dancing in a very small space.

Steingasse 11, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
American Bar

The Flip is an evergreen on the Salzburg scene. Students crowd into the small bar alongside tourists and locals. Not only are the guests diverse, but so are the cocktails - from Espresso Martini to "Pirate's Passion" with Captain Morgan and Passoã to the "Crazy Cherry" with gin and brandy.

Gstättengasse 17, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Restaurant Bar

Living room, bar and relaxed meeting place for foodies - that's what Luke's stands for. A casual and friendly concept that works. Regionality is not only a priority on the menu, but also in the drinks - from Austrian spirits to local ingredients for the fine cocktails.

Pyrkerstraße 34, 5630 Bad Hofgastein, Austria
