Whenever I travel to any European city, I indulge in visiting galleries or museum cafés. I like to enjoy the artsy atmosphere and let’s be honest – sometimes the cappuccino you get after walking around an exhibition provides a stronger epiphany than the exhibition itself!
The grandiose space occupies the corner of the gallery building, just a skip from the Danube riverside. It’s a great combination of the classic Central European cafe culture with modern gastronomic trends. The furnishings in tones of grey make you feel calm and intimate, while the huge windows with the view on the Danube provide plenty of daylight. The decorations on the high ceilings are remnants of the previous tenants- a Cuban bar. But nevermind, they somehow fit into the local, yet multicultural gallery environment.
During the summer months, it’s worth checking out their movie nights which they organize in cooperation with Kino Film Europe. but other events are just as worth it: flower arranging classes, architecture talks, urban planning workshops, local fashion displays, gallery related events or DJ nights, multi-generation pub quizzes.. Check their FB for current events.
But even on a quiet weekday, just pop in and enjoy the wide open yet calm space, great to read a book on your own or meet your best friend over a glass of dry Riesling.
On the menu you’ll find quality coffee, wine, beer, yummy cakes and healthy snacks for those in need of a small bite, warm or cold.
