Special 'Cafés Night' In Budapest, 17 May
Budapest’s coffee shops will be promoting café culture in a special Cafés Night on May 17. Some 30 locations and about 100 cultural performances & talks will be staged in 30 cafés that will stay open late for the event.

Budapest city council announced the first Cafés Night last year to revive and popularise the by now slightly forgotten Budapest café traditions that were so highly present in the 19th century, the organisers wrote in a statement. Last year’s event drew about 4,000 visitors.

Those who visit cafés that night can hear about the history of cafés and coffee itself and can choose to be entertained by musical, theatrical and literary shows.

Cafés involved in the programme include the Gerbeaud, Centrál, Dunapark and Hadik cafés.

    5 Places For A Great Date In Budapest

    This piece is about Budapest’s best spots to take a girl or boy on a first date, or on a date night, and of course it's intended to be informative and inspiring...The fact is I hadn't been on a first date in a very long time, and until very recently I’d only been on one real first date, twelve years ago in Luton. To make a long story short, recently I needed to start dating again, and for all those romantic types out there like me who fancy a less obvious place to take a date, look no further than this list put together by @expatsintheloop.

    From the organisers: Yes, it is this time of the year again. Let us invite you for a hot mulled wine, while the kids are playing "trick or treat" on the street. Cafés and restaurants marked will take part, so there will be chocolate.
