The "Flip" is rather famous in Salzburg. Especially in summer the beautiful garden in front of the bar, with a direct view onto the "Anton Neumayr Square" attracts a large number of visitors to the vicinity of the pub. The combination of urban air and alcohol also works in Salzburg, obviously! But the interior of the small place is also very notable. Compact round tables and leather seats just call out for guests to sit down and have a cocktail or two. Of course the bar also offers non-alcoholic drinks, as well as all the normal and traditional bar offerings. But the cocktails, mixed by the friendly and professional bar staff, are well worth a try. Musically speaking the "Flip" is rather "grungy", but request are always welcome. An ideal hang-out for young and young-feeling people.

Together with the Müllner Bräustübl and the StieglKeller, this is one of the most popular beer gardens in town, especially for those with a penchant for Weissbier (white beer). In the summer months plenty of people drop by for an after-work drink and a bite to eat (goulash with noodles is especially popular). Groups should book in advance, and can even visit the historic "Small Brewery" by appointment.
A series of concerts originally called 'Jazz in the Theater' took place at the Elizabeth Theater, hence the name. In 2002 a venue called Jazzit opened its doors near the main station. Since then it has become the meeting point of the Salzburg jazz scene. Besides concerts with international stars, there are jam sessions taking place every Tuesday. It is not only a haven for jazz lovers, but also a lively joint full of good music and a mixed crowd. Please call for open hours.

The Shamrock is an elegant fusion of traditional Irish features and more modern European elements. The bar is a popular meeting place for young and old, and live bands also appear regularly, with an in-house DJ filling any gaps in the line-up. The back part of the pub contains several tables, where customers can sit and have a chat in more sedate surroundings. Besides the usual selection of (Irish & Austrian) drinks, the Shamrock serves up a fine selection of pizza and sandwiches. The place is usually crowded on weekends, special nights and during game nights when locals cheer their favorite team and chat over the finer points of the game over chilled beers.
A cool pint of Guinness or Kilkenny at the Salzach? Sounds a bit out of place, but it's possible! The Rudolfskai, right on the Salzach, is the home of the O'Malley's Irish Pub, a place that plays an important role in Salzburg's nightlife. It's interior, as the name suggests, looks very much like a pub from the British or Irish Isles. Comfortable seating, two bars, an unbelievable variety of drinks (especially beer and whiskey of all sorts) and friendly, English speaking staff make every visit a pleasure. And the menu rounds it all off: up to 9pm the visitor can tuck into "Irish Stew" and various toasts. Bottoms up! Opens at 6pm and runs late into the night.
Upon entering the Steingasse, you'll find an unassuming little place to your left. The first thing to catch your eye is a big porcelain beast of prey sitting in the window, whilst music drifts out onto the street from the open door. This tiny location is a wonderful mixture of bar, restaurant, gallery, music-café and café and was the first in Salzburg which succeeded in offering a kind of easy-going lifestyle. Jazz music, delicious wines, and art on the walls all add to the atmosphere in this restaurant. Perhaps not for big dinners and lunches, it is great for enjoying small dishes such as seafood, salads, and soups and enjoying life by reading one of the art journals.
In former times, Salzburg sported two "Sega Bars." But only one survived thanks to the central positioning on the Rudolfkai. Here, the fun-seeking guest can find everything they need, and that for a very low price compared with others. Apart from the usual beer and wine specialties the place also offers various mixed drinks; however, the bar decides to charge an entrance fee every now and then, which is usually quite minimal. If you stay for the evening, the low price of drinks will make the cover charge worthwhile. Once inside, fast modern music, a professional staff and a load of young, happy people will persuade you to stay on into the night.
