Exhibition « Expresso at last! The Café Arabia on Kohlmarkt »

Article publié le 1 September 2022

Until March 19, 2023

Café Arabia, which opened in 1951, was located in the center of the city on the Kohlmarkt. It revolutionized the local coffee culture by importing Italian know-how. This mythical place, which disappeared in 1999, was created by Alfred Weiss (1890-1973). This entrepreneur developed the Arabia brand and made it a success in the inter-war period. Having to flee during the Holocaust, the family returned to Vienna after the war and rebuilt the company which had been dismantled and “Aryanized”. The exhibition, organized by Apostolo and Michael Freund, looks back on this fabulous epic.
