VIENNA – NOw OR NEvER?
You are now holding the first-ever Urban Guide to Vienna! INOPERAbLE is pleased to guide you through some of its favorite places. From shops to restaurants, from galleries to legal graffiti spots—it’s all included here. We have worked our hardest to provide you with a comprehensive guide to all things urban—the best spot to get that rare record or a case of spraypaint, the best galleries to see some of the top artists around today, and some of the trendiest/cheapest/just plain good places to eat and drink. Everyone has a different idea of what urban actually means, but we are confident that this map is the best guide to our city available today. And we know what we‘re talking about. For almost 4 years INOPERAbLE has been dedicated to showing the best the „urban art world“ has to offer, including street, graffiti, tattoo, and poster artists from around the globe. Though the name may change, we are certain the urban art movement is more than just a trend and that it will continue to have a huge impact. We hope you come by and say hello and, most importantly, that you enjoy our Vienna. Nathalie & 401RUSH INOPERAbLE loves you...
