PreParty & Main Event
New York Palace Budapest
Old World glamour meets contemporary luxury in the heart of Budapest. Designed by famous Hungarian architects, New York Palace is an architectural masterpiece. A marble façade is adorned with ornate carvings and clock towers, while inside, ballroom-style columns, chandeliers and frescoes transport guests back to a golden era.
The building opened on October 23, 1894 as a local office of the New York Life Insurance Company. The famous New York Café, located on the ground floor, has been a longtime center for Hungarian literature and poetry. The building was damaged in WWII, and then nationalized during the communist era. In 1957, the Hungarian sculptors carved replicas in the New York Café of the damaged allegorical sculptures of Thrift and Wealth, America and Hungary. In February 2001, the structure was sold by the Hungarian government to the Italian Boscolo Hotels chain. The building was totally renovated and reopened on May 5, 2006as New York Palace – A Boscolo Luxury Hotel. It was renamed Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel on November 24, 2021.
