The Black Lion is near the metro station Pilgramgasse(U4) and was recently taken over by a new inn keeper. Although the place is not as English as it used to be, it is still a cosy place. The new boss, a sturdy, practical and friendly lady definitely managed to merge insular and central European way of life in her pub. Strangers get a hearty welcome at the Black Lion is what she told me, after I visited the place again after a long absence. And it was true: I found myself wound up in a discussion after a couple of minutes and stayed two pints longer than originally intended. Those who prefer virtual discussions are also welcome as there is a computer in the back room permanently online. And it is a good idea to go online at the Black Lion as the computer is connected via the Chello Net (much faster than telephone lines).
