CABARET AT CAFÉ SABARSKY

The Cabaret Series continues its union of modern Austrian cuisine with classic European music and performance, harkening back to 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. This Summer's program is dedicated to theatrical performances celebrating the modern era in the style of 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. Ticket cost is $110 per person. ($45/person non-refundable performance fee charged upon booking. Dinner $65/person, charged on the evening of the performance. Tax, gratuity, and beverages are not included.)

Seating is shared, though Members may make special seating requests.
