Taking Vienna‘s ball dance tradition into the 21st century, the Vienna Rainbow Ball (or the Wiener Regenbogen Ball) is one of the city’s most popular dances of the season and a highlight for the LGBTQ community. Taking place in January each year, the ball celebrates diversity and helps raise funds for Homosexual Initiative Vienna, the city’s largest gay and lesbian organization.
The neon sign above the door of Marea Alta reads “Open Minded.” The club was originally founded as “an association for the promotion of lesbian immigrants and lesbian visibility” and has since established itself as one of the best LGBT venues in the city. Open from 6pm until 2am Mondays through Thursdays, and from 7pm to 4am on Fridays and Saturdays, events include karaoke nights and drag acts.
