ABOUT US

At Elysian Budapest, we believe that hospitality goes beyond offering exquisite cocktails and a welcoming ambiance. It’s about embracing values that nurture our environment and community. Our dedication to seasonality, locally sourced products, sustainability, and zero-waste practices shapes everything we do, ensuring that our footprint on the planet is as light as the experience we offer is delightful.

Embracing seasonality

Seasonality is not just a buzzword for us; it is the essence of our philosophy. By aligning our offerings with the natural rhythms of the seasons, we celebrate the freshest and most flavorful ingredients that each time of the year has to offer. This approach not only enhances the taste and quality of our cocktails but also ensures that we are in tune with nature’s cycles. It allows us to showcase the diversity and richness of what each season brings, creating a menu that is ever-evolving and vibrant.

Sustainable hospitality

Sustainable hospitality is our pledge to operate in a manner that conserves natural resources and promotes environmental health. It involves thoughtful sourcing of ingredients, energy-efficient operations, and a commitment to reducing waste. At Elysian Budapest, we strive to set a benchmark for how the hospitality industry can contribute to a sustainable future. Every decision we make is informed by our desire to protect and preserve the environment for generations to come.

Supporting locality

Supporting locality means more to us than just sourcing ingredients from nearby. It is about fostering relationships with local farmers, artisans, and producers who share our commitment to quality and sustainability. By choosing local, we reduce the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation and support the local economy. This connection to our community allows us to offer our patrons a true taste of Budapest and its surroundings, creating a direct link between our bar and the rich, diverse landscape that sustains us.

Approaching zero-waste

Zero-waste is more than an aspiration; it is a practical approach to minimizing our environmental impact. At Elysian, we focus on innovative ways to use every part of our ingredients, repurposing what would traditionally be considered waste into new and exciting elements of our menu. From composting organic waste to reducing single-use plastics, our goal is to ensure that nothing is wasted and everything is valued.

Sustainability as Common Sense

We view sustainability as common sense because it aligns with the fundamental principles of caring for our environment and community. In the old days, sustainability was simply a part of everyday life. People lived in harmony with the seasons, used local resources, and wasted nothing because it was practical and necessary. This approach wasn't called "sustainability"; it was just common sense.

Today, we are inspired by these timeless practices, understanding that what was once second nature should again become our standard. By prioritizing sustainability, we create a harmonious balance between our needs and the Earth's capabilities. It’s a win-win situation that benefits everyone, and at Elysian Budapest, we believe it should be the norm rather than the exception.
 

Join us at Elysian Budapest, where every sip, every ingredient, and every practice is a testament to our unwavering commitment to a sustainable, vibrant future. Together, we can make a meaningful difference, one cocktail at a time.
