Night life and entertainment



There’s a kind of relaxed and promising feel characterising Budapest nightlife. The number of nice pubs and hubs is growing rapidly like in the good old days around the turn of the last century. Budapest nightlife is enriched by the peresence of tourists visiting Hungary and expatriots who choose to live here for a long period. Hence the Hungarian capital has become much more multicultural in character than ever before. Young people, families with small children, or elderly tourists will definitely find the right place that suits their tastes, moods and styles best. Pick a programme from the wide range of places and cultural events: enjoy a drink in a crowded ruin pub, or a musical in the Europe-wide famous Budapest Operetta and Musical Theatre, or a meal in a calm and intimate restaurant. A great number of excellent restaurants are located in the vicinity of the hotel: they are like fixed stars in the fast-changing gastronomic scene of Budapest.

Lukács Cukrászda (VI. Andrássy út 70.)

was opened in 1912 in a Neo-Renaissance building designed by one of the most famous Hungarian architects called Alajos Hauszmann. The confectionary was reopened after being renovated in a splendid manner in 1996. Its design blends antigues and modern articles, and it is one of Budapest’s confectionaries where old world elegance meets contemporary style and convenience.

Gerbeaud Cukrászda (V. Vörösmarty tér 7-8.)

is situated in the very heart of Budapest, Gerbeaud is one of the biggest, most famous and traditional confectionaries in Europe. Its parlours seat 330 people who can enjoy the excellent place with a unique atmosphere. Gerbeaud offers mouth-watering cakes and pastries created by Henrik Kugler and Emil Gerbeaud, attentive service second to none in a wonderfully lavish setting characterised by rich stucco decoration, gorgeous chandelliers and bold brocade-covered walls.

Café New York (VII. Erzsébet krt. 9-11.)

is the most beautiful one among the legendary coffee houses in Budapest. The building was designed by Alajos Hauszmann. It was once the haunt of Budapest's most famous poets, playwrights, writers and painters, such as Endre Ady, Ferenc Molnár, Frigyes Karinthy and Pál Szinyei Merse. In 2006, it was wonderfully restored and transformed into a luxury 235 room, five-star hotel. The Neo-Baroque interior design of this turn-of-the-20th-century building is simply breathtaking in every aspect.

Ruin pubs

Szimpla Kert (VII. Kazinczy utca 14.)

Szimpla Kert was opened in 2001, since then it has become part of the Budapest image. It is a multicultural hub with frequent programmes, concerts and films (Szimpla Garden Cinema). Its kitchen is popular with young people. It is worth taking a ten-minute walk to discover the alternative Budapest.

Besides organising five to six large-scale exhibitions a year since 2004 on contemporary modern art, KogArt Ház pays a special attention to the youngest generation of artists presenting their work at the annual "Fresh Europe" Show. A night out in an elegant villa flavoured with art: you can enjoy excellent food and wines surrounded by paintings of János Vaszary, János Mattis-Teusch, László Moholy Nagy, Valér Ferenczy or Lajos Kassák.

Colour locale

Egri Borozó (VI. Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út 72.)

Egri Borozó is old-style wine cellar. Easy to find, easy to stay and have a few glasses of Bull’s Blood (one of the most characteristic Hungarian wines). It is a young-spirited place with cheap table wine served in ceramic jugs.

Városliget

Városliget is only five stops away on the Millennium Underground from the Opera Garden Hotel & Apartments. It has always been a popular park in the Hungarian capital, part of the city myth. Ferenc Molnár was inspired by the unique atmosphere of the park, and his world-famous play titled Caroussel was put on stage in West End Theatres in London and on the New York Broadway as well. Be part of the City Park legend, and do not miss to taste scones ("lángos"), cotton candy ("vattacukor") and pretzels ("perec").
