|Cafe Sabarsky at The Neue Galerie, New York City|
As a reminder, The Neue Galerie is a museum of early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design. If you viewed the 2015 film “Woman in Gold,” it is where five of icon artist Gustav Klimt’s works are in residence.
Cafe Sabarsky. Café Sabarsky, which bears the name of Neue Galerie co-founder Serge Sabarsky (other founder: Ronald Lauter), 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.
