The Hadik Café on now trendy Bartók Béla út used to be the haunt of prominent Magyar literary figures, such as Frigyes Karinthy, Dezső Kosztolányi and Tibor Déry. A modern-day revival saw its name changed to just Hadik, and it now awaits guests with a new interior, full menu and plenty of events. This means that the old golden walls were abandoned for bare brick, and the old plush covers on the armchairs are now changed for vintage leather. The design is slightly more contemporary, but the mission stays the same, to be a meeting point for Budapest’s artists. The chef, Bálint Apor – once of the legendary Gundel restaurant – reformed the whole selection of the kitchen, from snacks through burgers to classic main dishes. These can be perfectly paired with cocktails or local craft beer – or you can stroll over to the adjoining Szatyor Bár and Gallery, with no dividing wall between the two locales.
