Conference Dinner: Glacis Beisl

The Aging & Social Change Conference is pleased to announce the Conference Dinner.

In the 7th district of Vienna, nestled between Volkstheater, Spittelberg, Mariahilferstrasse, and Museumsquartier, the Glacis Beisl is a refuge for those who need a bit of distance from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here you can expect a symbiosis of modernity and tradition - this philosophy represents our restaurant both on the plate and in the dining room.

Absinthe-green demoulding table tops, cast-iron terrazzo floor, and a classic taproom, with secluded pergolas under tall walnut trees is how we have integrated the tradition of a genuine Viennese Beisl into an urban environment. With a mix of classics from Viennese and old Austrian cuisine, the Glacis Beisl welcomes its guests in one of the most charming guest gardens in Vienna.

Dinner will begin with smoked trout tartar with dill honey mustard sauce. The main course will be a selection of boiled prime beef, served with hash brown potatoes, and apple-horseradish and chive sauce. Somlau sweet dumplings with rum and raisins will be served for dessert. Drinks are included. A vegetarian alternative will be available—please select upon booking.

Date: Tuesday, 17 September
Time: 19:30 (7:30 PM)
Location: Glacis Beisl, Breite G. 4, 1070 Wien, Austria (view map)
Regular Dinner Cost: US$65
Vegetarian Dinner Cost: US$55
