Cafés Night scheduled for 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 and 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 interesting things about the history of cafés and coffee itself and may be entertained by musical, theatrical and literary shows.

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