“(…) In thirteenth-century Vienna, the local wine bars (housed in the local cellars) were notorious as the haunts of  harlots. Consequently, in 1403, the authorities banned the wine bars, though not the ladies of the night. This injunction seems to have affected neither trade, if the edicts of the subsequent centuries are anything to go by. In 1527, the authorities took the radical step of banning women from working in a dual capacity as harlots and wine-bar waitresses. In 1741, the City Guard was dissolved after the Batzenhausen in the bastions of the city wall had intermingled the wine and sex trades too closely.”
