In Italy it’s called a trattoria, in France a bistro and in Vienna it’s a beisl: a down-to-earth place where you feel at ease, with homemade food and a relaxed, family-like atmosphere. Like reisinger’s, in the centre of Vienna not far from the Bene showroom – a contemporary variation of the Vienna beisl. Here they prepare traditional and slightly modified Viennese classics along with selected Mediterranean and vegetarian meals in an open kitchen. They serve sophisticated beers and wines, homemade lemonade and an Italian caffè, which harmonises wonderfully with the delicious desserts.
Aside from the food and drink, the music plays an important role in how good you feel. That’s why at reisinger’s instead of emotionless radio mixes you’ll hear playlists that the two owners have put together to create a relaxed and cheerful mood. Their choices range from pop to soul, from funk to jazz. The current playlist begins with ethno pop and ends with swinging jazz. Have fun listening!
Melancholy, hope, despair and confidence in a beautiful mixture of pop, folk and Eastern European sounds. Django Reinhardt meets Neutral Milk Hotel.
We don’t know Mr. Christoffer but things do seem to be very relaxing in his bed. Good mood sound of a Norwegian trio that usually performs under the name Remington Super 60.
Finnish pop, just the way you imagine Finnish pop to be.
(Chris Blackwell & Paul Groucho Smykle remix) Highnoon. The final duel in the dusty sand in front of the saloon. That is how the remix of Manu Chao’s political statement begins, only to end in a soft reggae.
A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story in sweet French pop disguise
“Sometimes I feel like Jackie O.” Who doesn’t know this feeling?
Sunny indie pop from L.A.
A jazz classic, played by a Mexican-French-Argentinean Klezmer quartet. Sounds the way a fine, carefully-selected dessert wine tastes.
A classic Billie Holiday number, this time played extra cool.
Hammond organ, saxophone, bass, drums and electric guitar. Plus Sony Holland’s voice, which you just have to believe when she raves: “You’re the best, you’re amazing”. For acute self-doubt, take in several times a day.
