Vienna will host free flowing drinks all week for Art Basel


The Vienna Tourist Board and Art Basel in Miami Beach announce their inaugural partnership. The collaboration takes form in a green wine bar and an outdoor coffeehouse. To be erected within the fair’s Collectors Lounge, the Grüne Lounge (at 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach) will serve refreshing Viennese wines, grown within the city itself. In the adjacent Botanical Garden, a Vienna Coffeehouse will serve favorite Viennese coffee beverages in playful presentations.

On Vienna’s partnership with Art Basel in Miami Beach, Vienna Tourist Board Managing Director Norbert Kettner expressed his pleasure by sharing, “We are thrilled to present a selection of Vienna’s finest products and services here at Art Basel in Miami Beach for the first time. We are excited to welcome notably more American visitors to Vienna each year, and to see more art and design studios and galleries open. Assorted shows at museums across the city holistically pay homage to our globally interwoven heritage, as Vienna continues to proudly serve the international community as an arts and creativity incubator”. The Grüne Lounge will be open December 5th – 9th. The Vienna Coffeehouse will be open December 4th – 9th. Beneath the palm trees not only coffee from Viennese partner Julius Meinl but also a transportive taste of the Viennese coffeehouse culture – which was added to the UNESCO list of intangible cultural assets in 2011 – will be served.
