It was an amazing experience. Several different concepts under the roof. Superb atmosphere and nice place to make new friends. Arena bar has a superb choice of music classic rock. Bar tenders are friendly. Definitely a recommended place to check out if in the vicinity

A little smaller, but a good place for concerts. Good acoustics, good service. Although the toilets are worse, but suffice.

Got a chance to see Robert Plant and the sensational space shifters, amazing venue, even more of an amazing concert. Open bar, 1 euro for the cup, but that assures less clutter from being thrown away, really smart. Standing room only for this concert, great crowd, amazing venue..

I was too busy looking at the beautiful art to take pictures. Just go. We saw ZZ Top, and it was awesome! I'd go back to Vienna just for a good show at this venue.

I've been to many, many concerts here in many different genres, the last having been this Thursday: I love the staff (grown-up to middle-aged punks, everyone - from security to bar staff and sound engineers, everyone! yeah!! You don't get that anywhere else!), and I just adore the place. There are actually four halls in this former slaughterhouse complex: The... More

Up to now, I've only been to Arena once, but I really, really can't wait to go back as it produced so many amazing memories for me. It's a concert venue, or a complex with I think that three different venues, and it looks just awesome. Every bit of it is covered with awesome grafitti, and it's just small enough... More

It's a MUST to see. It's an underground culture must. Ideally go here for a concert......you can go for small/underground shows or even bigger acts. It's really cool, with a totally "undergroundish" bar in the area, with interesting people. Far from dangerous, simply very, very interesting.
