The Kollázs Brasserie & Bar is a contemporary European brasserie in a vibrant location, overlooking the Chain Bridge and the Danube River. The decorative interior makes many historical references through beautiful details, sensitively selected artwork, furniture and materials. A mixed palette of concealed, integrated lighting, decorative luminaires and discreet downlighting sympathetically provides the elements to create a vibrant and welcoming restaurant. Along with the dining rooms, the restaurant features an elegant Patisserie, dramatic Rotisserie and striking Bar design, all of which are enhanced with carefully coordinated lighting.

The restaurant is in operation all day from early breakfast to late night cocktails. In response to this flexible use, the lighting changes through the day to best suit the service at any particular time with the bright and fresh daytime scenes to a more intimate dining experience in the evening. The Bar becomes the main attraction after dinner when the lighting provides focus to the bespoke furniture and sparkling glassware creating a cosy and relaxed place to enjoy a late drink.
