Kisüzem opened up at the end of the year 2011 at the 'bar district' of Budapest at Klauzál square.Daytime everything is given to the classic coffeehouse atmosphere: 2 creative guys at the kitchen, wireless internet, fresh daily press and specially grounded coffee.The place is child and dog-friendly!In late afternoon, good wines and palinkas become more and more popular, the place is getting crowded.Starting at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Kisüzem hosts smooth jazz and other diverse concerts.Kisüzem is not a romkocsma but not a fancy bar either: the place attracts all kind of artists and hip people from the neighborhood: it's a venue for musicians, painters, actors, journalists and fortunately for a lot of foreigners lately!

Ugly street view, ugly bar, regular drink choises, OK service but we really couldn't understand what supposed to be so special in this place? There are hundred other more interesting bars in Budapest, this wasn't really worth searching.

Overhyped place, with lack of creativity. The atmosphere would be Ok, but they are unable to handle the crowd, the service was slow and unprofessional. There are way betters!

We visited on a Monday evening, and couldn't find a bad word to say about Kisuzem. The staff are excellent, high quality service without the 'just for tourists' nonsense you might find elsewhere. A laid back atmosphere, cheap drinks and a brilliant range of beers, spirits and wines. Kisuzem would be a perfect introduction to 'Ruin Pub' living for anyone.

Went here a couple of times on a recent trip to Budapest. Really great little place with one of the nicest vibes you can come across. It's cosy and quiet but still lively in a unique way. Food in excellent, cheap and though not fancy as such, the care that goes into it is second to none. Fantastic little place.

Stumbled across this place on our first night in Budapest, initially ordered a drink each but then saw the food going by and the wine selection so stayed for a bottle of Hungarian wine, delicious goulash and another local dish of the day. Really vibey on a Friday night and great value!

It just might be. The cinder blocks for tables and minimalist design may scream Shoreditch 7 years ago, but they work here in Budapest. The best selection of spirits in Pest and delicious coffee. Morning, noon or night this is a great place to come to collect your thoughts and pinch some wife.

We went there for new year with at the recommendation of friends living in Budapest. Very nice atmosphere, staff, customers, music was also super. We recommend if you don't to be with the tourist masses, and if you want to get to know the locals better.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
