Welcome to Distrikt 42!

We exist because we want to offer you experiences. Everything we do is because we want to become your favorite destination. We put passion in cooking, we prepare specialty coffee, we serve great wines and we make you feel like home because we are a family. We welcome you in a place which stands out with a whimsical design (as our visitors often stated), where you can experience delicious burgers, the wonderful chef’s specialties, our own wine & coffee brand – #42, and enjoy surprising cocktails.

Menu

#42-Coffee. Wine. Life. Everything

How do we measure time? We wake up early, we socialize during a couple of coffees with our friends and travellers that step in and we set a date in a few wines (arrgh “hours”). So when would it be best for you to meet up? Coffee time, wine time or both?

Culinary Wonders

We are what we love. This doesn’t mean that we are delicious burgers or flavored pasta, but we certainly are good peeps because we like good foodJ. You are invited to explore our menu!

Business lunch

Don’t underestimate the power of lunch because this is the perfect occasion for you to get out of the office and to have a nice time here at Distrikt 42, far from your office keyboard, deadlines and reports. From Monday to Friday we offer you a complete menu with soup and a main dish. We like variety so we change it weekly. Therefore you can eat a nice healthy meal for only 22,5 lei and if you prefer something else, we offer you a 20% discount for any dish in the Distrikt 42 Menu from 12 to 15 o’clock. Enjoy!

Alcoholic Goodies

Evenings are a little bit more enjoyable if you order a cocktail made by our passionate bartenders. We have our own signature recipes but we also like classic ones. If you rather drink something light, there is also a list of non-alcoholic cocktails, lemonade or beer. 

Your Event

We are here to organize your next big party! Whether you are a company representative and you want to have a year-end party, whether you want to celebrate your birthday or have a baptism party, we are pleased to help you. There is enough space both at the first floor and at the second floor. In what concerns the menu, we have many options for you. Send us an e-mail at distrikt42@gmail.com and we will get back to you with an offer, based on you request.

Our Story

In 2015 we’ve opened the doors of the first steampunk gastropub in Bucharest. Our objective was to offer our clients a place that would eventually become a destination. Distrikt 42 could be easily described in 3 simple words: far from reality. We based our vision on an unusual design with design elements that tell stories similar with Jules Verne’s so that you could be easily transposed in another kind of dimension –  a fantastic one.

The building dates back in 1870 and it represented the perfect place for us to materialize our vision. The construction has permitted the arrangement of a space composed of two different worlds, separated by a splendid spiral staircase, Victorian style, made of marble and wrought iron. Elements like brick walls or old wood door frames have been preserved and restored in order to keep a part of the past. Everywhere you look, you will be surprised by interesting elements that draw the attention of everyone who has a passion for photography, for novelty, for new things or simply for unusual places.

The first floor is dominated by mechanical gears, clock parts or other industrial components. All these are completed by impressive elements such as a flying bike hanging on the ceiling, a zeppelin above the bar, a ship with wings, metal statues or a Wurlitzer jukebox. We’ve placed the lighting systems close to the decoration elements in order to make sure they are properly highlighted.  

In the upstairs area, we opted for a slightly simplified design, but it also has magnificent elements – it is more a mysterious space, dominated by legendary symbols. When you arrive upstairs, don’t forget to take a look at the ceiling – you will be surprised by a stained glass with cardinal points and afterwards you will be welcomed by a solar system.

The upstairs space is ideal for corporate parties, birthday parties, but also for people who want to work in a different place than the office. We recommend you to enter every single room because you will find many interesting items: a panther that runs infinitely on the wall, an immense diaphragm positioned in front of a window that gives a dynamic touch to the room or a compass table. 

When you enter our restaurant you will be welcomed by the unique flavour of freshly grounded coffee. Because we are in love with coffee and wine, we created our own brand which represents a celebration of these two important beverages in every person’s life – #42. Coffee. Wine. Life. Everything.

We are among the few and first restaurants in the Old Center to have renounced commercial coffee in favor of specialty coffee. The position of the coffee bar at the entrance is not accidental – our philosophy is that morning was created for specialty  coffee, noon was created for excellent food, and evening was created for great wines.

We love diversity, we like to know that we can conquer every taste and that we can offer our clients the possibility to choose from a wide range of products (burgers, mongolian pasta, soups, salads or desserts). The drinks menu is also rich in choices – we have plenty of wines (Romanian, Austrian or French); there are also lots of cocktails to choose from or you can opt for beer, whiskey, brandy, vodka, gin or rum.  

When the time has come for us to choose our name, we have decided to find a universal term understood by all our visitors – Distrikt is an easy word that can be understood both in Romanian and in English and 42 is a universal number, about which you will definitely want to find out more. 42 is the answer to all the questions, but it is not known which these are; the book “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” has inspired us a lot.

That being said, and then written, we end by telling you that Distrikt 42 is the place that awaits you somewhere #farfromreality, on Sfantu Dumitru Street, no. 3, Bucharest.

“I had drinks and dinner here with a large group of friends on a busy

Friday night. Both the meal and the service were good. Actually, much better than expected for one waiter covering a large area full of people. The menu has some interesting choices apart from the standard fair and also an extensive drink list. Overall, I was satisfied with the food and the service.”
