The house from Dianei Street 4 has a complicated history, as do most of the beautiful 19th century houses in Bucharest. It’s a history that has left traces and you’ll be able to see it.
As it happened with most houses that belonged to the Bucharest bourgeoisie, in 1950 the house was nationalized and it was used by several families until the 1990s. After that, it became the property of the state, in the use of the Foreign Intelligence Service. The original owner regained the property of the house in 2007 and nowadays it is used as a restaurant and bar.
What I really love about this house is its garden because it’s very special, you actually feel like you’re in somebody’s courtyard right in the middle of the city. Bucharest is a city-garden city, you’ll be amazed by how many there are.
Sometimes, during weekends, there are garage sales organized here during the day and parties at night.
Do try their elderflower spritz!
