The Escape is certainly the best metal bar in Vienna. Not least because of the regular gothic, metal, electronic, alternative and underground concerts that take place here, but also thanks to the many beers and the cozy atmosphere.

The Escape Metalcorner opened in March 2003 and has since established itself as the meeting place of the local metal scene. In 2005, the escape was extended to the basement vault, which has a capacity of around 150 people. Since then, there have also been concerts (usually) in regular intervals, mostly in the metal sector.

At Neustiftgasse and Wimbergergasse, the Escape is located in Vienna - just next to the Gürtel, not far from Thalia Strasse. The Escape offers a comprehensive evening program from 19:30.

Mi.-Do. 20:00 - 02:00
Fri-Sat 20:00 - 04:00

Im Jahr 2005 wurde das Escape um das Kellergewölbe, das ein Fassungsvermögen von rund 150 Leuten aufweist, erweitert. Seitdem finden in (un-) regelmässigen Abständen auch Konzerte, zumeist im Metal Bereich, statt.
