Contemporary Art Lovers Gather at Caffe Dante for an Afternoon Meetup
Forget about Starbucks! The coffees at Dante's are out of this world and alcoholic beverages along with real Italian pastries and sodas are also available from their huge menu selection. Reasonably priced and one of my most favorite hangouts for meetings; business and social.
My regular: Steamed Machiato in a glass! Consistently delicious and extra foamy just the way I like it.
This historical venue is a favorite with famous ghosts and living celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Whoppi Goldberg, Al Pacino, Robert Deniro, Jerry Seinfeld and most recently spotted going in was poet, singer-songwriter, Patti Smith.
Dante's faces Bob Dylan's former townhouse (No. 94) where the renowned, celebrity-stalker, A.J. Weberman persistently made off with the Dylan family's trash in search of collectibles and which apparently, from what I recall led to a fistfight between him and Dylan down the block on Houston Street.
A.J. Weberman happily digging through Bob Dylan's trash.
Hope you can make it! This should be a fun and relaxed way for us to meet each other, talk a bit about the New York art scene, share stories about our favorite artists, upcoming shows, and get some new adventures rolling!
And, seriously, this is their policy... Please leave your technology at home and join us for this radical approach to networking where electronics are not allowed. That's a good thing because the old-fashioned way of building social and business relationships through interaction, engagement and conversation actually works!
"I've been going to Caffe Dante and drinking cappuccinos with my friends for five years. It's where Bob Dylan used to go, and I know all the waitresses, who have been following my career. I really love it here because it's right where Dylan used to live, and there's a real spirit here that I'm always down for."
Decades later I'm still hooked on their Steamed Machiato and hanging out with friends at Dante's."
