Visit Cabaret Fledermaus Bar

Into the Night


Drink like it's 1907 at our life-size recreation of Vienna's famed Cabaret Fledermaus. Open Thursday to Saturday evening in our exhibition Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art.

In October 1907, on the corner of Kärntner Straße 33 and Johannesgasse 1 in Vienna, a new kind of club emerged in a converted basement of a residential building. Cabaret Fledermaus was conceived as a place where the ‘boredom’ of contemporary life would be replaced by ‘ease, art and culture’.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (6-9pm) throughout the exhibition you will be able to step back in time and enjoy a drink in this spectacular space lined with multi-coloured tiles depicting fantastical motifs.

Entry to the bar is included with an Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art exhibition ticket.

From a black and white photograph to a life-size recreation in our gallery, we explore the story behind Cabaret Fledermaus and how we brought it back to life in Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art.
