At Gulasch & Champagne, the old Viennese charm of fast cuisine and midnight snacks like Debreziner sausages, Leberkäse and – of course – goulash, meets sparkly Veuve Clicquot and tasty Velkopopovický. Traditionally a very simple menu of homely delicacies is partnered with champagne or beer, creating an interesting combination of rich tastes and delicate flavours. The theme is build on the art of seduction with a tongue-in-cheek attitude. Along with this, the new corporate design invites the guests at Gulasch&Champagne to enjoy themselves, celebrate and even to sin a little.

Inspired by the allure and the delicacies of the traditional Viennese cuisine, the branding design leaves no room for doubts: Gulasch&Champagne really is carefree dining at its best.
