The grand café takes its name from the 1952 composition 4’33” by American composer John Cage. A work of 4 minutes and 33 seconds of pure silence. Only accidental ambient noise can be heard. Just as this piece of music never sounds the same, it is the changing elements – the concerts, the food, the weather and you – that make a visit to 4'33 grand café unique every time.
