One of the most interesting places to go in Budapest is the Muzikum Klub & Bisztró at Kossuth Klub, Múzeum u. 7 Budapest 1088, located in the Hadik-Barkóczy Palace-House (1863) in the heart of the palaces district, a neighborhood where all the splendor of the Hungarian golden age is breathed.

Muzikum Klub & Bisztró has an a la carte cuisine, very creative, from the hand of a world runner-up chef, however if you wish you can also ask a well-made burger at the bistro.
