The original Három Holló, located on Andrássy út, near the Opera, was poet Endre Ady’s favorite hangout. Then the Eckermann Café opened in its place at the end of the ‘90s – it was a place that had many ties connecting it to the coffeehouse traditions and the literary scene of Budapest. Három Holló in the city centre, beside Elizabeth Bridge, is now the spiritual heir of this place. The different floors of this large café each has a different cultural purpose. The ground floor with its huge glass façade, marble tables, cakes, sandwiches and delicious Italian coffee is a classic coffeehouse for chatting and working, while the two floors below provide a home to theatre, concerts and other events.
