Budapest’s Chic Revolution

Budapest’s Chic Revolution

Hungary’s capital is slowly swapping its Soviet grit for some European brio. On our radar: the 74-room, retro-mod Soho Boutique Hotel (doubles from $130), decorated with Pop art murals; the edgy Retrock boutique, where local designers display their wares; and the Jewish-Hungarian Fülemüle Étterem (dinner for two $96), which serves regional soul food (rich goose cassoulet) accompanied by crisp Hungarian whites. And don’t miss the classic Gellért Baths & Spa, with three outdoor pools and eight indoor thermal baths.
