Last week we celebrated our 2nd anniversary in Caffe Vivaldi. The caffe recently hosted Woody Allen and his film crew shooting scenes for his new Amazon series, was established in 1983. Woody filmed scenes at Caffe Vivaldi for two of his previous movies; Bullets Over Broadway and Whatever Works. Since early 2000s Caffe Vivaldi features local musicians performing 7 days a week, performing donation-based concerts.
Here we are celebrating two seasons at Caffe Vivaldi, with a chocolate strawberry shortcake 🙂 ❤
A dream come true!Established in 1983, Caffe Vivaldi is a New York classic in itself. In the old days, the owner Ishrat Ansari, a big time classical music fan, used to play recordings from his vast private collection. For hundreds of his customers, that was their first introduction to Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and other masters of Western Classical music. Every evening, after having their first classical music experience at Vivaldi, customers would walk over to Tower Records to buy a copy of the recording. Along the years Ansari made several attempts to have classical music in his cafe on a regular basis. Since 2014 with Emir GAMSIZOGLU’s performances, this became a reality. Caffe Vivaldi has become the only cafe in New York where you can listen to classical music every weekend; Sundays at 4pm.
