CABARET AT CAFÉ SABARSKY

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. 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.

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.

Payment is taken in two installments: performance and dinner. The performance portion ($65) is charged at the time the reservation is made. The dinner portion ($75 plus tax, gratuity and cost of beverages) is charged the evening of the performance by the Café staff. Guests must attend both dinner and the performance and are responsible for the total combined ticket cost. Performance fees are non-refundable. Please note that seating is shared, though Members may make special seating requests.
