Paul's

Bar

in Linz

Facing the monumental Mariendom cathedral, this A-line building's facade is split down the middle: half is stone, the other half is fronted by floor-to-ceiling glass that's lit up in vivid red at night. Austrian beers include organic and gluten-free varieties, and Paul's own pale ale, brewed by Salzburg's Hofbräu Kaltenhausen; there are also Austrian wines by the glass and bottle.

The action spills onto the terrace in summer; in winter it moves down to the vaulted cellar.
