Concerts Bring the Sound of (Modern) Music to Downtown Vienna Hotels

Austria may be the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for one of the most famous musicals of all time, but it is Vienna's downtown streets that are alive with the sound of music these days, thanks to the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel.

Starting on January 16th, pub singer Stuart Neville will perform for guests every second and fourth Thursday as part of the historic hotel's RLife LIVE Events.

Dubbed Stormy Sounds, the live concert series spotlights the musical talents of the Scottish-born Neville. During his performances, which begin at 7 p.m., Neville covers popular songs to the melodies of his guitar. Access to the concerts is complimentary, and guests can sip creative cocktails and drinks from the lobby bar while soaking up their favorite songs.

The concerts, however, are just one way the property distinguishes itself from otherVienna city-center hotels.

 The setting for these concerts is another way. Located on the site where the former imperial riding school's horse stables once stood, the hotel's lobby makes an inspiring setting for any gathering. Its imposing pillars, elegant furnishings and historic pedigree create an atmosphere as conducive to concerts as to mingling with friends, catching up on email or networking before a conference in one of the hotel's 15 Vienna meeting rooms.

While locals are as welcome to attend the Stormy Sounds concerts as hotel guests, travelers enjoy a unique advantage in being able to extend their experience of the property via an overnight stay. Boasting some of the most luxurious and beautiful hotel rooms in Vienna, the property offers recently renovated accommodations that feature contemporary styling and luxury bedding. For those seeking the next level of service, the hotel's Imperial Club rooms and suites include complimentary breakfast, high-speed Internet and access to the exclusive Club Lounge, where travelers can experience, among other things, a demonstration kitchen.

Of course, guests don't have to visit the Club Lounge to taste the exciting dining options in Vienna. Anyone, for example, can book a pre-concert dinner to enjoy traditional Austrian dishes at the hotel's Arsenal restaurant. Or concert-goers can try one of the hotel's other restaurants: Borromaeus, City Garden and the Lobby Bar all offer inventive fare prepared to satisfy any craving.

Whether guests make a night of the Stormy Sounds event or just pop in to listen to their favorite songs, this RLife LIVE series promises to enrich guests' experience of Vienna in numerous, memorable ways.
