First Ladies Night after Corona

On the 1st Friday of the month the regular Ladies Night takes place at the HOSI Salzburg – an evening by women for women. Next Friday (5.06.) starts the first Ladies Night after Corona. In loungiger bar atmosphere this evening is a meeting place for women, all the same whether lesbian, trans or hetero. Doris Posch, organizer together with Astrid Pracher, says “the Ladies Night is a protected space for women among themselves”.

This evening has a long tradition as a “women’s evening” at the HOSI. Four years ago, Astrid and Doris dusted off this format and turned it into Ladies Night. During these four years there have always been special and spontaneous events. For example, two Georgian asylum seekers cooked for the ladies. This was well received and broadened the culinary horizons. Occasionally there are readings. Or live music. Or the Ladies Night is simply a fun come-together with bar music.

On this evening, women come from Salzburg and the surrounding area, but the appeal of this format also reaches as far as nearby Bavaria or Upper Austria, bringing together women and trans people from the entire region.

With distance and hygiene

Given the corona-related circumstances, it will probably still remain that the first Ladies Night will also be held at tables, Until 11 pm. From June 15, however, the curfew in the catering industry will be extended to 1:00 a.m. and the four-person limit will fall. Who knows? With the constantly changing rules to distance and hygiene means Wolfgang of the Dark Eagle “There begin really to rotate”. Maybe next Friday everything will be different again? Nevertheless, it can not hurt to register for the 5th of June and the mouth/nose protection should be there in any case. Email After all, there are 30-50 women at a “normal” Ladies Night, and with the current 4-person-at-the-table rule, it might be tight.

HOSI member Klaus Horvat Unterdorfer has graphically implemented the currently valid rules of disbursement.

Be that as it may: Astrid and Doris are looking forward to the first Ladies Night after Corona next Friday (5.06.) and the reunion with long unseen fellows. A good opportunity to turn social abstinence into social presence.

Ladies Night at the HOSI Salzburg, Friday 5.06. from 6 pm. Further dates: 3.07., 7.08., 2.10., 6.11.2020 etc.

Salzburg Queer Update

17.10.2021 On 31 October, it will be spooky-beautiful at the HOSI Salzburg. The Junge HOSI organises the slightly morbid Halloween party. With a lot of love for detail, a spooky ambience will be created in the HOSI centre on Gabelsberger Straße. Read more about it under Queer Halloween. 11.10.2021 From 22 to 25 November, the HOSI Salzburg will be represented with a punch stand at the Christmas market at the Alter Markt. In addition to punch, there will be all kinds of Advent food and of course a cosy atmosphere in the medieval flair of the old town.

Off into the night!

Since yesterday (1.07.2021), significantly relaxed Corona rules have been in force in Austria. This mainly affects the (night) gastronomy. The curfew has been abolished. This means that bars and clubs are once again free to decide on their opening hours. The obligation to wear masks in pubs and at the bar is history. However, the 3G rule still applies.

Queer Halloween

Salzburg is not Haddonfield (USA), where the horror classic "Halloween – the Night of Horror" by John Carpenter was filmed in 1978. But you can get a taste of it on 31.10.2021 at the HOSI Salzburg. Then the "Junge HOSI" (young Hosi-members) invites you to a spooky and beautiful scare in a party atmosphere and rejoice in life.
