Bródy Sándor utca 9
1088 Budapest, Hungary (District VIII)
Located in the Palace Quarter—a neighborhood which has been praised as one of Budapest’s hippest up-and-coming neighborhoods in publications such as Vogue, The New York Times, and Condé Nast Traveler—aristocratic families of the Austro-Hungarian Empire had their residences here. Between 1867 and World War I there were nearly three dozen palaces and mansions built in this small area (including our building). Like the rest of Budapest, many buildings here are still bullet-scarred from battles during World War Two and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. They are slowly being restored, and more businesses, cafés, bars, and shops are revitalizing the area. The Tasting Table is in the cellar of the Keglevich Palace, built in 1871 for Count Stefan Keglevich, a member of parliament. Keglevich was a Croatian count who created a vodka brand in 1884, the Keglevich Classic, which was distilled from pure grain and remains popular today. Perhaps he stored his vodka and other experimental drinks in our little cellar? We like to think so.
