It may seem like a quiet city by day, but Salzburg really comes alive at night. Old Town is filled with small, historic pubs, including several popular microbreweries, while livelier, more modern bars are situated on both banks of the river, on Rudolfskai and Giselakai. The big nightclubs, meanwhile, tend to be on the outskirts of the city, usually within shopping malls.
Our Forbes Travel Guide editors feel the best way to spend an evening in this city of music, however, is to catch a live concert. There are classical performances taking place throughout the year in a variety of venues — the most famous (and most exclusive) is probably the Marble Hall at Mirabell Palace. If classical music isn’t your thing, you can try the Shamrock Irish Pub for live Irish fiddlers; Rockhouse for late-night rock and metal bands; or Szene for everything from electro DJs to jazz jam sessions.
