Société Budapest’s building was originally a residential one constructed in 1865 based on Karoly Gerster’s plans, then redesigned multiple times. The building located in the neighborhood of St. Stephen’s Basilica – in the heart of Budapest – has been a city heritage since 1955. Now, the house has been transformed into an inspiring space on 3500 sqm to host several creative initiatives.

Come and visit us at 15 Sas street where you can taste excellent dishes in our fine bistro, drink exceptional coffee, participate in exciting and various programs, exhibitions, parties, and exclusive events. All this in a beautifully refurbished, modern yet authentic building in the heart of the downtown area. This is us, this is Société Budapest.

Société was made for Budapest, for people who are attracted to culture, arts, fashion, and gastronomy. Our building at 15 Sas street is an open complex for everyone, with a restaurant, bar, and an exhibition and event space as well – a place for cultural and other entertaining programs.

15 Sas utca, Budapest 1051 Hungary.


Société Budapest defines, inspires, brings you into a community. Société Budapest is the complex we have so far lacked in the life of Budapest. Société Budapest was made for our city, it represents our capital in Europe. Société Budapest is built for those who think there is “no place …” in Budapest right now. We create a space that puts you off from the routine, drifting and grayness. It’s a place to go not because there is nothing else, but because this is where you want to spend your money and time, because you want to be part of it, because here is the community you want to belong to. We do not want everybody to understand us, but whoever understands, we would like to become an integral part of their life.

We are not going to break the rules, but we do not follow what we disagree with. We have our own way, with our own ideas that we would like to share with anyone who is open to it.

We are fashion lovers. We are foodies. We are music enthusiasts. We are cultural beings. We are adepts. We are cool. We are adults.


Société was founded by Zoltán Varga, a private investor and philanthropist. He devotes his time and resources to support cultural projects like Budapest Festival Orchestra as well as those that assist less privileged members of Hungarian Society like Bátor Tábor (Brave Camp) and Mosoly Alapítvány (Smile Foundation). He believes fashion and arts have their universal languages therefore Société is exceeding Hungarian boarders to promote the regional creativity abroad.
