Recently renovated, this well-hidden jam features an eclectic style that puts most fancy pubs to shame. They like to think of their little pub as place beyond the clouds, a hop, skip and a beat away from the city’s tumultuous vibe. A place for the brave. The outlawed. Where the talented lay their souls on small pieces of paper which end up hanging from the walls. Where big names from the jazz music industry walk in and out, unannounced, like walking into their own homes. Not a place for the faint-hearted. Raucous jam sessions, full-bearded waiters, a cosy setting lit by stage lights, some dainty small pillows and plenty of custom-made round tables paired with hot pink garden chairs.

The Slévárna area can present as one large hall or it can be divided into two smaller areas by moving the walls.

The Szekler Museum of Ciuc, as an institution, was born in 1950. He inherited the content of the exhibition from 1930 and the collection of the catholic gymnasium. In the first years the biggest challenge was to find a proper residence for the institution. In 1954 the museum owned 17 rooms and 954 museum objects. In the second half of the 1950s the museum even succeeded in giving out yearbooks, while it also had to meet the requirements of the communist regime: it had to be the mouthpiece of the communist ideology. Under the directorship of Géza Nagy (1959 - 1963) the objects of the museum were all registered. In 1961 the previously nationalized library of the Franciscan order, an invaluable intellectual product, entered into the possession of the museum. On the beginning of 1990 the co-operative of the museum chose as director András Szabó. Under the terms of democracy the directorship offered total freedom in the museum work. Internal and external professional relationships have come into being, the individual scientific activity of the researchers has boomed, and there have been lots of exhibitions and yearbooks that wore the sign of the Szekler Museum of Ciuc.
