An Evening at the Hotel Sacher
Spend an evening at Vienna's stately Hotel Sacher and your memories will last a lifetime. A perfect night there begins with a drink at the elegant Blaue Bar, famous for its midnight blue and gold décor. After learning a bit about the hotel's fabled history from the charming barkeeper, head down the marble hall for an unforgettable dinner at Anna Sacher, named for the legendary grande dame who ran the hotel until 1929. (Famously, her two beloved bulldogs were always in tow.)
Today the restaurant is as fashionable as ever, with its priceless Lobmeyr crystal chandeliers and paintings by Anton Faistauer. Like Vienna itself, the place resists living in the past, and Sacher's chef de cuisine, Werner Pichlmaier, has created a wave of devotees for his contemporary, light interpretation of traditional Austrian cuisine.
