"We wanted to open a place available for everybody. We wanted it to be a suitable location both for businessmen to come and have a cup of coffee during their lunch break or for students to meet up and party," says Josip Kurevija, 31, a co-owner of the "Stylez Club" – the lounge/club/bar located on Neubaugasse 10.
And it seems that Josip and his partner Robert Prims, 30, have successfully achieved their goal. The concept of this lounge/club/bar is to mix a living room atmosphere and an event mood that give visitors an opportunity to enjoy an array of things.
Guests can treat themselves with a late-morning snack or a quick cappuccino over a lunch meeting or a couple of cocktails during the Happy Hours between five and nine (from Monday to Saturday) or a bottle of exclusive champagne during a Saturday night party.
It all started eight years ago when Robert and Josip were organising occasional parties for young people at various locations. The parties soon became a blast, but it was hard for two friends to find and rent a place each time they were organising an event. "We decided to stop wasting money on renting and bought a café that was closing. The location was perfect – Neubaugasse, right behind the Mariahilferstraße. Where else on Mariahilferstraße would one find a café, bar and club all in one?" adds Robert.
The name of the bar – Stylez – supports its main concept: It is a mix of different styles of living, designing and spending free time that owners created in their lounge. The interior of the "Stylez Club" perfectly reflects its ideology. Divided into two floors, it gives visitors an opportunity to choose between the first-floor "living room" area designed in warm and subtle palette of orange and yellow colours and furnished with comfortable dark-brown armchairs and red chairs and the second-floor "party" area designed in darker colours with mood-setting dark-blue lighting, DJ set and a dance floor.
The music played in the bar is also of various styles: on different days of the week you can listen to chill music, minimal electro and global house.
While seated in a comfortable armchair on a little podium next to the big window, overlooking the street and the terrace, one can go over the menu of the "Stylez Club."
Even though the bar offers a variety of snacks and non-alcohol drinks, the main focus of the menu is cocktails. Guests can choose from more than 60 types of cocktails, starting with classic Cosmopolitan, Bailey's and Mochito and finishing with specialties of the bar, such as Stylez Special and the now famous Missing Color.
The Missing Color was invented by the owners themselves during a boring evening, and as it turned out to be green and there was no cocktail with such a color on the menu, the name appealed instantly.
The quality of cocktails is huge: All ingredients are mixed in such a balanced way that no separate sense can be distinguished. The ability to create a unique taste out of several ingredients is a testament to the skills mastered by bartenders of the "Stylez Club".
Not only the bartenders surprise, the whole staff works on making the visit a new experience. Visitors are politely led to their seats by the owners of the bar who also contribute to the experience, menus are offered instantly and chosen beverages and snacks are brought as quickly as possible. Waiters pay attention to clients throughout their whole visit, with the feeling of friendliness and belonging a priority.
Whether you are a fancy party animal or a quiet bookworm, the "Stylez Club" team will make your visit entertaining, enjoyable and unforgettable.
All in all, "Stylez Club" gets a firm recommendation for a visit .
