Sip your coffee or nibble at cake while live music plays in the background at a calm and grandiose spot on Andrássy Avenue, in the heart of downtown Budapest. The building functioned as a casino in the 19th century before housing the first real department store of the city, and now this is home to a huge bookstore. You'll also find the Alexandra Café (Bookcafé) here, characterized by a luxurious interior and bookish vibes. The beautiful Lotz Hall is an ideal and frequented venue for various events. If you love books and adore old-world splendour, be sure to pay a visit!
