The Cabaret Series continues its union of modern Austrian cuisine with classic European music of the 1890s to 1930s, experienced within the period-inspired Café Sabarsky.
Guests enjoy a three-course, prix-fixe menu beginning at 7 p.m., followed by the performance at 9 p.m. in the intimate setting of the Café. The 60-seat room is exquisitely appointed with Wiener Werkstätte designs, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann and furniture by Adolf Loos, and also features a magnificent Bösendorfer grand piano. Performances are dedicated to some of the most fertile and volatile music created in the modern era—Austrian and German Cabaret, and the genre's commitment to questioning social mores through humor, storytelling, and wit.
All performances are at 9 p.m., preceded by a prix-fixe dinner at 7 p.m.
Combined cost is $140 (dinner $75, performance $65; must be purchased together). Seating is shared, though Members may make special seating requests. For more information call 212 628 6200 ext 485 or email [email protected].
