“So special and relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

It is the most original place I have ever seen. A lot of space, very original decorations, very relaxing atmosphere and nice music!

“Cool place to hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

This bar is made for the tourists, but it is very different from your average tourist bar. Lots of rooms with different themes to explore. A big open back area if you like crowds, or smaller intimate "wine bar" areas if you want something a little more civilised. Lots of contrasts in between. There is a cool vibe to this place, without being intimidating. The door men and bar staff are friendly, and beer is cheap!

“Just go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Good mix of tourists, locals, and euro drink tourists (think American college spring break but aged 18 to 40). Had a couple very fun nights, just walk the place find a room that suits your mood and knock a few back. Pizza type counter was good after buzz not so much before. If using this app to navigate just go a half bock further on the street than it shows.

“commercial place under alternative facade”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I didn't like it because they look like a d.i.y. place with alternative charm but actually it is one of the most commercial places and nothing so special. I better visit authentic d.i.y. places and d.i.y. bars :P

“New experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Very different to anything else must go! Take a sisha a big beer and go meet new people! But if you are a girl I would be careful with some guys who claim to be working in Budapest and traveling around we met three guys with the same story so just keep an eye !
