Horváth Mihály tér, Budapest, District 8. An external addition to the eccentric watering hole Zsiga Bár, this booth measures approximately 2x6 meters and has a ceiling height of about 2.5 meters. A wooden structure built from scrapped doors and windows salvaged in the area, its roof is clad with metal sheets and features some accented moldings. With an ambiance that of a quirky theater stage set, Zsiga’s pavilion feels as though it has been here forever. Born of a unique idea and staying as far away from mass consumption as possible, it has found its organic place in the microcosm of Horváth Mihály tér.
Located at the intersection of Krúdy Gyula utca and Mikszáth tér, in a neighborhood locally known as Palotanegyed (literally Palace Quarter), at the heart of Budapest's District 8. In a landmark building adjacent to Lumen, a hole-in-the-wall café since 2010 that also prouds itself as a photo gallery and artisan coffee roasting shop, another coffee shop cum culture pub has been born in 2013. Overlooking a gorgeous urban square, the place snuggles perfectly into its surroundings. At a mere 60 square meters of floor space, the three-section commercial unit features a sunny storefront of uncluttered space, peppered only with a few tables, that is ideal for cultural happenings of all sorts. The bar and service functions are located towards the back.
