The two souls of Kisüzem make it a staple in Budapest’s hipster district. This bright coffeeshop and restaurant is a great place to chill and have lunch during the day, surrounded by its savanna-like plants and entertained by the wide street view ensured by its low and large windows. It’s at night, anyways, that I find it most appealing.
Laid back and naturally artistic, this bar is usually packed, so it’s wise to reserve a table, but it offers enough space to spend time standing and sitting on the windowsills, it’s also an option. I usually have very stimulating conversations with my friends or other writers who live in Budapest here, often meeting artists of other sorts.
The concerts and expositions are definitely a major ingredient for Kisüzem’s success, together with its humble uniqueness, something that I find very “Budapestish”.
