Café Sabarsky

Café Sabarsky

Café Sabarsky, which bears the name of Neue Galerie co-founder Serge Sabarsky, draws its inspiration from the great Viennese cafés that served as important centers of intellectual and artistic life at the turn of the century. It is outfitted with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann, furniture by Adolf Loos, and banquettes that are upholstered with a 1912 Otto Wagner fabric. A Bösendorfer grand piano graces one corner of the Café, and is used for all cabaret, chamber, and classical music performances at the museum.


Café Sabarsky offers a modern take on the culinary heritage of Austria with a menu that reflects the history and allure of the Viennese café and restaurant traditions.


Thursday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Closed Monday–Wednesday

Neue Galerie New York is pleased to present Cabaret at Café Sabarsky. The performance series pairs modern Austrian cuisine with classic European music of the 1890s to 1930s, experienced within the period-inspired Café Sabarsky.

We plan to relaunch our Cabaret at Café Sabarsky program when we are able to operate at a higher occupancy.
