Muzsa is Budapest’s first Art Nouveau Luxury Craft Cocktail Bar – Now Open at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace, Budapest, Hungary.
MÚZSA Budapest, Hungary is finally unveiled after three years in the making. Imbuing the elegance of Budapest’s golden age, MÚZSA bar introduces a new lobby lounge concept to Four Seasons Gresham Palace Budapest, fusing the building’s rich past with the needs of today’s sophisticated clientele. This new offering includes a private concierge library, a private meeting room, a tasting room and expansive bar areas.
MÚZSA offers an inspired atmosphere to enjoy artful cocktail creations, an exciting blend of Asian and Hungarian cuisines, and a diverse mix of local authentic live entertainment.
MÚZSA is the Hungarian word for “muse” and as the name suggests, the concept of the bar is inspiration and creativity indicative of the Art Nouveau era that once thrived in Budapest. The modern take on Art Nouveau interior motifs reflects and honours the rich heritage of the Gresham Palace, known as one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in the world.
In the bar area, which seats 130, a raised platform for live performances takes centre stage – a reminder of the luxury of traditional Budapest hotel bars of the 1910s.
The best of the best Budapest has to offer.
The bespoke and hand painted Herend porcelain collection, the largest selection of tokaji aszú in the world, the refined palinka menu, the state-of-the-art crystal glasses, the fine art House of Staunton chess set in the library room, the uniform collection that was designed by local fashion designer Elysian, and the diverse entertainment program all provide a true representation of the best of the best Budapest has to offer.
MÚZSA’s menu is a feast for all senses.
In the menu, MÚZSA meets each guest inviting them to find their muse, to incorporate the organic, to flow with creativity, and to imagine a future where art and life belong together. Combining three eras – past, present and future – into 15 signature cocktails, the menu seamlessly blends local history, creative storytelling, and exotic culinary flavours.
The Cocktail Concept is blending locally-sourced ingredients and influences with international craft cocktail trends.
Positioning itself to be recognised as one of the best bars in the world, MÚZSA’s cocktail menu was carefully crafted by Head Bartender Ádám Rédli, who brings World’s Best Bar expertise to MÚZSA. Presenting a collection of handcrafted cocktails in three unique forms, the menu follows the story of MÚZSA from her past origins through the Golden Age to the future. Within this narrative, MÚZSA’s cocktails are inspired by certain aspects of her story in each setting, and created based on the premise of past cocktails representing the classic cocktail heritage, the present cocktails following current trends, and the future cocktails representing fresh,
creative and unique ways in sustainable and technology-driven cocktail making.
