Overview

Music is the guiding principle in this quiet, secluded cafe - in the Lion Cafe, you sit in secluded pew-like seats and drink in the atmosphere that only the very best of classical music can evoke. People don't come here to socialize - they come for the music - so talking is generally discouraged and the lighting is kept dim. The cafe was originally built in 1923 and then restored in 1950, almost to the letter of the original design, after it was destroyed in a World War II firebombing. Places like the Lion Cafe are precious, as are the peaceful moments they provide - for classical music lovers, it's a must-do.
