We are pleased to welcome you to the website of the beautifully restored Hubay Music Salon.
In its time, this venue was one of the most important salons of music and art in the city, where the cultural and political elite of the era came together for some conversation and music. This sophisticatedly restored hall now welcomes all those who would like to relive the atmosphere of this salon, as it was in its heyday.
I wish that this hall will host experiences of true art and meaningful exchanges between its visitors.

Jenő Hubay, the world famous violinist, composer and educator built his house on the banks of the river Danube in 1897-98. On the first floor of the four storey building, in the legendary white Music Hall gatherings of music, literature and other arts were regularly held, which were considered highlights of the Hungarian cultural life for four decades. The renowned music hall suffered a quiet spell following the second world war and was only reopened to the public in 2008, having been bought and renovated by the owners of Hotel Victoria. Today it is a part of the hotel and, together with some other rooms of the Hubay palace, it can be entered through the hotel lobby.
