The wine bar offers local wine and gastronomic specialities. A place full of contrasts. The concept deals with contrasts of old and new stuff - antique boxes of wine and Viennese words, untreated timber and slick black parts emphases the combinations.

The wine boxes were upcycled and used in different shapes and functions. The client is a wine expert who is loving Helmut Qualtinger, a famous Austrian actor and unique writer known for talking in Vienna slang. Some Vienna terms e.g. `Burnheidl┬┤ were placed on various and unexpected place for tracking visitors throughout the bar.
