New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner with Concert & Ballroom Party
Celebrate the New Year in the style of the 19th century! Budapest shows its class on the 31st December with this unique program combination. The event is compiled of a delicious 5 course gala dinner with a carefully selected menu for the occasion. A New Year's Eve Gala Concert performed by one of the most famous Hungarian symphonic orchestras, professional ballet dancers, operetta singers and folk musicians. The night is complete with a splendid standing reception in ballroom atmosphere for a multi-cultural audience. The reception includes open bar with unlimited drink consumption and traditional Hungarian New Year's dinner.
The program takes place in one of Budapest Downtown's most distinguished theatre buildings, the Danube Palace. The former casino of Lipótváros was built between 1883 and 1885, in beautiful Neo-Baroque style by the plans of Vilmos Freund. At that time it was known as the aristocratic club for entertainment not a casino in terms of gambling. Until the beginning of World War II the Palace served as the cultural hub of Budapest supported by several young artists such as Bartók, Kodály and Dvorák who performed in its first class concert hall.
Experience the class and magnitude of royal Hungary and have a New Year's Eve for the ages!
