Are you a New Yorker who is addicted to caffeine? Guests will experience true Viennese coffeehouse culture at the temporary Café Sacher offering Viennese coffee specialties and, of course, the famous Original Sacher-Torte, a sinful chocolate cake to satisfy your guilty sweet tooth. Or you can snack on Apfelstrudel, another staple of dessert menus in Austria. Coffee specialties will be $5; desserts will be sold for $6. Your coffee will be served from original Café Sacher cups on marble table tops, so you’ll feel like you finally escaped the office for a vacation across the Atlantic. More of a savory foodie? The Austrian Deli will be open to sample pumpkin seed oil or artisanal vinegars by Gölles.
Do you sparkle and shine? Swarovski Crystal Worlds present themselves with displays of some of their crystal masterpieces. Gustav Klimt's famous painting "The Kiss" will serve as the backdrop for an interactive reenactment of visitors' version of their "perfect kiss". Bring your crush and give him a big smooch - the staff will take a picture for you to keep and share with all of your friends (of course you won’t resist posting it to make frenemies jealous on Facebook).
Throughout these two weeks the Austria Pop-Up will be the venue for concerts, food & wine events, film screenings and much more. For a complete schedule of events click here.
