CABARET AT CAFÉ SABARSKY

The Cabaret Series, an ongoing tradition at Neue Galerie New York, is a union of modern Austrian cuisine with classic European music and performance. The spirit of each performance harkens back to the 1890s to 1930s, experienced within the period-inspired Café Sabarsky.

 The Autumn 2018 program is dedicated to musical performances that celebrate 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.

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 room is exquisitely appointed with Wiener Werkstätte designs, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann, furniture by Adolf Loos, and a magnificent Bösendorfer grand piano. 

TICKETS

Ticket price varies by performance, and payment is taken in two installments: performance and dinner. The performance portion 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 Café Sabarsky staff. Guests must attend both dinner and performance and are responsible for total combined ticket cost. Please note that seating is shared. Museum members may call with a seating preference.
