Good Live music in Budapest

It is perfect place for dining and listening to live music. Daily concerts that varies from Jazz, Blues, Swing. Thumb down for the 15% service charge (it is 10% elsewhere in Budapest) and the not clear and confusing bill.

We found the old man pub whilst looking for some music. There was a live band on and we went in for a look. The place was very busy and we couldn't see the band. However the atmosphere was good and everyone seemed to enjoy. The disco after was in a room down stairs and was very 80s but good... More

it was a plus though that we could order dinner at 10PM, definitely! I wouldn't come here for the food as it was quite expensive for what you get however the atmosphere is great so do drop by for the music or for a drink!

We came on a Sunday evening, early about 6 pm when it was quiet, lots of the tables were reserved, but we were squeezed on a 2 table for two. The food was Okay, nothing special. As the evening progressed, some of the reserved tables around us filled up but most did not. The band that played were very good,... More

This is one of those litte Gem places you find in a big city. It has a great atmosphere with live music everynight of the week. When the live music finishes some nights they continue with a disco.

We love live music of all types and had read the reviews so were really looking forward to an evening here. However, while the band were very good there is only a very small bar area and there is a much larger, seperate section for diners. Even though it was late at night and nobody was eating, we were not... More

Live music every night. Blues, rock n roll., pop...a great mix. Onlya handful of people in watching the bands from a comfy mix of wooden seats or propping up the bar. Music memorobilia all over the walls & ceiling. Good food, and all cheap. Free entrance.

Had to look in, as some of my Hungarian musician friends perform there [mainly Rockabilly/Rock and Roll]. Eclectic music mix available, interior decor from the 30's onwards. Only stopped for a beer, as had a very full program. If/when I return to Budapest must sample the cuisine. Staff friendly, service very good.

Very nice welcome from Bandi at Old Man's Café Shop who kindly kept a parking place for my car just in front of the restaurant, before my arrival ! I really appreciated ! Regarding the food, I strongly recommend the Goulash soup full of good flavors and its homemade bread. BBQ ribs are also very tasty and generous, even for... More
