A destination in its own right and integral to the Hard Rock Hotel Budapest, Sessions is bistro restaurant, cocktail bar and DJ spot in one. Globetrotting chef Tamás Lipták and team in the open kitchen prepare the specialities of a fellow Hard Rock Hotel city – a pindi chole curry, say, or even fish and chips – but they’re equally happy to sizzle you up a signature burger with foie gras camembert. The many Hungarian labels in the wine rack are not just there for show but the ideal complement to a classic domestic dish such as wild-boar goulash or chicken paprikash. High-end Hungarian spirits, pálinka peach brandy and Unicum Reserva, underscore signature cocktails such as a Peach & Passion and Budapest Spritz, served from the island bar of this buzzy, contemporary space. Original artwork and a well-chosen soundtrack set the tone, the tempo changing when DJs spin tunes on ThursdayFriday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday lunchtimes. Alongside, an open passage courtyard looks out onto the urban hubbub close to Nagymező utca, Budapest’s own theatre-lined version of Broadway.
