Long before opening Lugeck, brothers Hans and Thomas Figlmüller took an active interest in Viennese tavern culture. They dusted off and studied their grandmother’s old cookbooks and heavily researched the traditions of Austrian cuisine, as well as the countless taverns, which plated such dishes. With the research done came the idea—revive traditional Viennese cuisine and classic tavern culture at Lugeck.
Guests should feel as if they have stepped back in time to the ‘good old days,’ when people spent free time together with innkeepers and not glued in front of the tube. Lugeck is the new home for all Viennese men and women with a propensity to eat, and eat well, and for those that appreciate the intricacies of a handcrafted selection of wine and beer.
A great house with an even greater tradition.
The Regensburger Hof building at Lugeck is considered one of the most picturesque and storied buildings in Vienna. First erected in the 14th century and rebuilt in 1897, the address has always been brimming with life. It was not only a place of shelter and trade for the merchants from Regensburg, but also staged fetes representative of the Habsburg House. Today, the Regensburger Hof building is a beloved photo motif for tourists. And we strongly believe it was time to add another chapter to its illustrious history.
Reviving Viennese tavern culture means retaining it.
We do not take this task lightly. Taverns functioned as extended living rooms far beyond Viennese borders. It is no stretch to draw parallels between the taverns of yesterday and the social media services of today: They were places to meet and exchange views with close friends, familiar acquaintances and complete strangers, or get the latest news by word of mouth. Albeit none of this happened in the subdued seclusion in front of a computer screen—rather in jovial fellowship with the accompaniment of fine food and a glass of local wine or two.
Back to the roots of good taste.
In addition to the culinary classics of Austrian cuisine, Lugeck offers an ever-changing array of seasonal offerings, as well as lighter interpretations of classic fare that are perfect for lunch-time appetite. Our attention to detail begins with superb, hearty breads and ends with a handcrafted coffee—key to closing any meal worth its salt.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree: the passion for good taste lies in the family.

The Father of Refreshment: Herr Frischend, the organic fizzy pop from Figlmüller.
If Herr Frischend could speak, he’d be sure to pop off about how he’s made of the best ingredients and that his company is exclusively found at Lugeck. While he might have been a bothersome earful, he is a delectable mouthful. Grab a bottle and see what all the fuss is about.
Food for thought — some things never go out of style
At Lugeck, you can not only expect exceptional Austrian cuisine, but also a wide selection of high-quality wines and craft beers.
For our WINE LIST sommelière Fiona Figlmüller expertly selected exciting wines that aren’t readily found no matter the street. But take a look – and a swig — for yourself!

For centuries, the Regensburger Hof building functioned as a place for the Regensburg merchants to unload their wares, fill their hungry stomachs, and rest their heads. First recorded by name in the late 14th century, it was roughly a century later that the building blossomed into one of the most significant houses for the city's upper class, where splendid feasts and spirited balls drew crowned heads. With the onset of the modern era, the shine and splendor of days gone by faded and the building subsequently served as tenement quarters until it was razed in 1896. During the time of Viennese industrial Expansion and urban redevelopment, Franz von Neumann erected a new building at Lugeck that was withdrawn, yet more voluminous, which continues to shape the beloved square today.
The term Lugeck has ist root in the German auslugen (peek), as the two corner towers provide excellent cover to peer around the corner unseen. There is also a place of legend in the heart of Lugeck: where the monument of Johannes Gutenberg stands today was once home to circular chasm, in which the most-popular legend states that the Old Pummerin bell of Stephansdom, destroyed in World War II, was originally cast.
Lugeck is perhaps the most modern of the city's taverns, yet one that retains traditional and renowned Viennese character - beauty, after all, requires context. Architect Gregor Eichinger's leitmotif to the internal décor can be summed up by "build upon what's known to create something new." The storied tavern Location has been reinterpretated and reconceptualized with modern zeitgeist.
Instead of the typical translucent "bottle green" ceramic tiles, Gregor Eichinger decorated the Dining room interior with a material orginally at home in the kitchen: porcelain enamel. This serves as the tavern's central aesthetic component, while the staircase and the bar form the room's natural core.
Above the bar hang chandeliers made of repurposed beer glasses - a clear nod to the typical Viennese tankard, the krügerl.
Suspended lamps and light columns create an area of fcus for your gaze, so that the interior does not flood seamlessly into the hustle and bustle of the cty through the large, prominent glass façade.
Chairs and benches made of sturdy beech wood mesh perfectly with classic tavern ambience; yet retain their own character through delicate veve and stubborn form. The spacious seating surface allows for comfortable and secure storage of a bag behind the extended armrests. By placing two seats side-by-side a bench is formed. high backrests provide benches on the second floor with room dividers and privacy screens.
Classic draperies typical to tavern entrances can be found on the second floor and are instrumental in ensuring private booths.
To give Lugeck the charm of an old acquaintance, resopal and linoleum have been deployed: you won't find classic table cloths, rather tables with a classic diamond finish made of resopal. Black linoleum is the dominating feature on the ground floor to underscore the rustic, earthy tavern character.
By taking a seat in this historic house, the tavern will seep into your Memory consciously or subconsciously. Personal and mutual tavern yarns coming together in the now.
