Chef Alain Weissgerber will for one month transform Supersense in Vienna into the pop-up restaurant ‘Zum Tauben Dogen’ – a restaurant for all senses.


Award-winning restaurant Taubenkobel opens its doors in Vienna in the grand rooms of the Doge’s Palace, a Venetian palazzo from the 18th century and usually home of ‘Supersense’ – a café, store, workshop and vinyl record studio owned by Viennese nobility Florian Kaps.

A contemporary pivot in a palace, hidden in the heart of Vienna.

Serving multi-course dinners, the pop-up restaurant ‘Zum Tauben Dogen’ opens for groups of up to 80 people including 25 seats at a Chef’s Table, where Taubenkobel Chef Alain Weissgerber and his team invites gourmets to a menu that appeals to all senses.

In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, a traditional gluehwein and chestnut stand is offered. Old school meets new.

Taubenkobel performs their culinary excellence November 25th – December 23rd in this Venetian palace, hidden in the heart of Vienna.


A daily changing program of workshops, live music, tastings, studio sessions and readings broadens this time-limited opportunity, ensuring no sense is neglected. “In this fast and digital environment we need to find new ways: Break up with antiquated expectations – that’s what we want to realize”, explains Florian Kaps on the intentions of ‘Zum Tauben Dogen’.

Barbara Eselböck – Taubenkobel co-owner, front of house “Chefie” and daughter of the Taubenkobel founders Eveline und Walter Eselböck, describes Supersense as “an inspiring place where creative people, modern visions and fine products fit perfectly together”, while emphasizing she’s looking very much forward to the exciting, upcoming Vienna-project.

French-born Taubenkobel Chef-owner Alain Weissgerber underlines, “This pop-up restaurant allows us to entertain more guests in Vienna and attract all senses with natural ingredients and organic products.”



Besides being home to a café, store, workshop and a record studio, Supersense also manufactures carefully hand cut vinyl master records.

In 1898, Vienna built up its only Doge’s Palace, located in Praterstraße 70.

Once inspired by the visions of Carl Caufal, the palace was requickened in 2013 when ‘Supersense’ opened its doors. The new vision: Create a magic venue, where handicraft and objects have a soul that touches all senses.

In their own words: “SUPERSENSE is a truly unique and deeply essential combination of all the things we madly love and believe in!”
