Permanent event

Live music bistro experience every day from 8:30pm

IKON’s mission is nothing less than to bring back the old piano bar atmosphere. We can think of the Hungarian places of 100 years ago, but the legendary clubs of New York were also worthy models when we opened. The point is that we never play music from recordings, but always live piano, Norbert Gazsi plays according to the needs and preferences of our guests.
