“Looks Closed Down!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Being an old man who likes music and pubs, I tried to visit this place while I was in Budapest. The exterior was shabby and showed no signs of life (It was late on a Friday evening). There was a pile of unopened mail stacked up against the door. That says closed to me!

“Live music every night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I discovered this pub because it was very close to my hotel. It's a place where you can go in the weekdays for dinner or just a beer and live music! I love that they bring a different band every night - from funk, raggae to hungarian country music or rock, they all sound great and they know how to entertain the audience.
The food is very good and not so pricy as I expected for that area. You can also try a few Hungarian drinks there as Palinka or Unicum.

Later in the night, after live music is over (lasts between 9-11PM), the party starts in the dowstairs room and lasts until 3-4AM every night - still, I recommend going for party during the weekends.

“Has Old Mans Closed or Moved ?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I've been to this bar lots of times in the past but when I was in Budapest earlier this week other bar owners and the hotel people told me it had closed dow. The old door has certailnly gone and been bricked up but their web site is still going. So where is it now ?

“great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Reasonable prices, nice surrounding (the inside!), good wee dance floor and excellent cheesy tunes!! We went here in preparation for going to one of the bigger clubs, and loved it (would've happily have stayed all night!).
