DISCOVER THE BLACK FOOD FESTIVAL
Those who visit Budapest can come over to the dark side as coal-coloured food and drinks star at a new festival.

In line with the bar’s principles, the treats served here will not contain any ingredient of animal origin. DJs spin hits during the event that runs from 3pm to 9pm. By the end of this one-day fiesta, a jury will select the Black Food and Black Drink of 2018.
