The Met x Cafe Fledermaus x Bemelmans Bar
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is home to some of the world's most famous works — even their permanent exhibitions could keep you captivated for hours on end. But we love when a new exhibit rolls into town that encourages us to head back to the historical oasis. Obsession: Nudes by Klimt, Schiele, and Picasso is just that exhibit. On display from July 3rd to October 7th, the exhibit presents a selection of some fifty works from The Met's Scofield Thayer Collection. Warning: some of the works contain explicit erotic content (just the way we like it).
Then, continue your journey of artistic inspiration with a trip to Café Fledermaus, housed in the Neue Galerie. With decor inspired by the Cabaret Fledermaus, a world-famous Viennese cabaret, enjoy an array of Austrian and German foods such as spätzle, würste (sausages), and schnitzel.
After, reward your inner art critics with cocktails at Bemelmans Bar in The Carlyle Hotel. With murals by Ludwig Bemelmans, the illustrator of the Madeline children series, and live jazz and piano nightly, the bar is a mix of whimsy and class — a perfect way to wind down the weekend.
