Is it named after the famous Hungarian noble family or the incredible butter cream-and-meringue cake? We don't know for sure. However, we do know that Esterhasi Bar is one of the nice places to grab a delicious bite or a cup of coffee and relax in Sofia.
In the morning Esterhasi Bar takes the form of a quiet café that serves freshly baked croissants and creamy Italian cappuccino. From the moment when the clock strikes noon up until about 2.30 pm, the place transforms into a sophisticated bistro where one can try a nice variety of yummy salads and lunch meals. In the afternoon it is succeeded by a fine patisserie offering incredible desserts and refreshing tea, while in the evening it becomes a lovely gourmet restaurant whose enticing sushi, divine pasta, extraordinary fish specialties and exciting selection of sparkling and dry wines will absolutely mesmerise you and satisfy all your needs.
When it comes to location, there is hardly any other place that occupies a more strategic position in the central part of the city than Esterhasi Bar. It lies on the tiny alley parallel to Tsar Osvoboditel Boulevard, right between the Sofia University and the beautiful green Borisova Gradina Park and is within walking distance of the city's most popular tourist attractions. This sole fact makes the bar a preferred starting point for many sightseeing tours and also a favourite coffee and lunch break spot to all those who have already set out on a quest to explore the magic of the Bulgarian capital.
Esterhasi Bar flaunts a clean stylish interior designed by Nina and Yordan Stefanov in compliance with all the latest trends and fashion requirements. The combination of modern furniture, vibrant colours, spectacular use of light and lots of fresh flowers lends the place a unique atmosphere that can only be compared to the original feel of the fancy London bars and restaurants. The astonishing views of Vitosha Mountain and the lovely heated terrace open for clients 365 days a year, on the other hand, load the bar with local charm and snug comfort.
The service at Esterhasi Bar is simply brilliant. The waiting staff and bar tenders are always very careful and ready to help, while the chef is a true master of gastronomy. And if you happen to go there at the end of the week and have one drink too many, don't worry and don't call a cab - just ask the driver at the bar to take you to your desired destination. Esterhasi has stuck up a wonderful partnership with Infinity so you will be in for a real luxury ride... and you won't have to pay a single penny for that, either, honestly.
The Fridays and Saturdays are extra special because this is the time when some of the best DJs in Bulgaria are invited to play some pleasant chill-out and club music for the clients of the bar. And this is only one of the many fun events held there, by the way. You can check out the bar's programme for more detailed information about the rest.
As we already mentioned, Esterhasi Bar has a perfect location and that, of course, makes it extremely easy to find and reach. It is just ten seconds away from the Sofia University Metro Station and it also has six convenient parking spaces in the green parking zone of Sofia reserved especially for clients.
And now the cherry on top of the cake: Esterhasi Bar provides a huge variety of catering services and organises all sorts of parties and events. So if you are having trouble going about the meeting or happening you have to take care of, just keep calm and call the guys at Esterhasi. Their professional touch and valuable expertise in the field will surely come in handy and your event will undoubtedly be a great success.
