Porgy & Bess

Listed in the Guardian, by Adam McCulloch, as one of the ‘Top Ten Jazz Clubs in Europe’ Porgy & Bess is Vienna’s hub for all things musical. Night after night live bands perform classic jazz numbers to a roaring crowd, and you simply can’t miss a visit.


Pork & Bess was created by Mathias Ruegg and first opened its doors in the 1990s, as the venue grew in popularity it moved to Wien where it now occupies an old Austrian cabaret venue.


This non-profit organisation enlists musicians from all over the world to offer an eclectic mix of international jazz, blues and world music. The venue has a capacity of 350 people and serves bar snacks and nibbles throughout the night. Make sure you check online to see what’s on in the coming weeks.
