HOME OF OPERA GIN BUDAPEST

The Art of Cooking

Nothing is more natural for the manufacturer of the multi-award winning Opera Gin, as to choose the Hotel Moments building at 8 Andrássy út, in the immediate vicinity of the Opera House, as the location for their downtown flagship bar. One of the most beautiful boulevards in Europe, Andrássy Avenue, a World Heritage Site, and within the former Schossberger Palace – you can’t dream of better spot than that.
Sfinx Gin and Wine and Bar “Home of Opera Gin Budapest” aims to operate a bar worthy of the spirit of the place .

An innovative reworking of traditional recipes

In Hungary, we try to shine as a gem of cocktail culture, which we display in all our drinks.

Hors d’oeuvres

Mariann Kiss is known as the Hollywood stars chef

Throughout her career from Angelina Jolie, through Brad Pitt to Anthony Hopkins she cooked for other celebrities as well. After traveling the world she stayed in New York, where she was the executive chef of the Consulate General of Hungary, and the UN’s kitchen. In 2016 she returned to the private sector and started working as a head chef within a company which runs the 10 biggest restaurants in Manhattan. Currently with the team of Opera Gin, Mariann created something very special, the Sfinx Bar. Our chef provides her preciosity and extensive experience, which will be your culinary adventure here, in our bar.

Coffee

Happy to present our guests 42 Coffee as our coffee partner.

The Intergalactic Roastery of 42 Coffee is probably one of the most peculiar coffee roaster in the world. Not only are they firm believers of the concept of ethically traded specialty arabicas and their careful roasting – but also they tend to have the annoying habit of following up on the wellbeing of their cherished beans. Furthermore the guys at 42 Coffee are convinced that coffee is not just the tool to accompany your „morning” Bloody Mary to help fight the hazy memories of last night; but – combined with the right ingredients – it is an amazing companion to kick off an evening that has the promise of a few drinks in it.
