“Very unique and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I was hesistant at first to visit this place as I thought it was a tourist trap of some sort. Although it is filled with young tourists, there is quite nothing like it that I have ever seen or experienced. Yes it is a bar but it's definitely much more than that. It is extremely appealing visually and mentally and has a very unique atmosphere it creates while being able to enjoy some drinks and some amazing music. It definitely is worth the visit and we met some great people at this place.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The pub is unlike any others that you might have been to, the design and architecture of that place is very innovative, quite an eye opener. Huge choice of drinks at reasonable prices, and shisha is available there as well. The most exciting part is the people that you get to meet them, from all different countries, where you will get to interact with them and learn stuffs from their adventures.

“One of the best bars in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

There is not much to dislike in Szimpla. A lot of fun people, reasonable prices, very good atmosphere, different interiour and again, lot of fun.
They play all kind of music, so everybody gets to listen to some favourite during the night. It seems that they close up when people leave :) have been there a few times, until very late hours, but never saw them close.
