InterContinental Budapest’s Live on the Terrace event series is back again this year. Visitors can enjoy live music, DJs and culinary treats while sipping cocktails inspired by Hungarian inventions created by the Corso team. All this with the backdrop of one of the most beautiful sunset views Budapest can offer.
Thursday is all about Latin rhythms, this is when the Mai Rumba band takes the stage in the bar, on Friday at Corso Restaurant you can enjoy acoustic music. Besides the music a complete culinary experience awaits you: with the highly fashionable Green Egg ceramic grill, you can actively participate in the preparation of your own dinner.
On Saturday a DJ and a singer are responsible for jazzing up guests so that after a light meal and some cocktails they are ready to explore the night life.
Having returned home after years of gaining experience abroad Gergő Gullner chef is in charge of the restaurant’s kitchen and his goal is to reinvent Hungarian traditions in the light of the international influences he was exposed to. By transforming traditional dishes he explores regional gastronomy spanning across borders from the Dalmatian seaside to the mountains of Tatra in Slovakia. The emphasis is on using locally available ingredients and using them in season. Sustainability is also a key aspect; Gergő Gullner is an avid proponent of the globally popular „zero waste” trend which aims to make use of every bit of the ingredients.
On the rooftop of the hotel there is a bio garden where herbs, paprika, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and strawberries are grown which are then used at the restaurant and the bar.
We’d like to introduce high-quality Hungarian ingredients to the guests of the bar of InterContinental Budapest as well, so we are offering Hungarian pálinka and gin. The cocktails inspired by world-famous Hungarian inventions reframe in special drinks the exciting and innovative stories which are hopefully familiar to foreign guests too – like Rubik’s cube,vitamin C or the Biro’s pen –, and now they can also taste them in an unexpected form.
The iconic Vitamin C cocktail is an hommage to Albert Szent-Györgyi. The spectacular vodka-based cocktail includes sour tasting vitamin C pills finely pulverized in a mortar and the fresh flavours are highlighted by the addition of tonic water. The citrus sorbet and Corso Elixír are also freshly prepared and the roasted cocktail tomatoes and the fresh herbs come from the rooftop bio garden.
The guests of the Live on the Terrace can enjoy the complex culinary and musical experience until September.
