I love the ruins bar, it's such a cool idea to convert a ruined building into a vibey nightlife location. Even if you're not interested in a full night out at least go for one drink, it's worth it! Also free wifi upstairs so its great!

Went there often as an expat, and take lots of people there. Unfortunatly. last night the Greek bar tender decided that she would pour us the most expensive vodka on the menu, because she wasn't looking at where we were pointing, instead she 'looks into our eyes and makes a decision' What should have been around a 4000HUF round ended...

It's hard to define what a ruin bar is in Budapest. Is it an abandoned building turned into a makeshift bar, is it a repurposed shop? The theme eludes me slightly. But this is what I imagined. It doesn't have the drop dead gorgeous style of Szimpla or Instant (both worth visiting!), it's not chic, it's pretty basic and the... More

It is an average place in the central of budapest. Prices are okay. Hot wine was also average. You should pay for toilett i think it is a joke. You can play flipper and air hockey, but one of the hockey table is bad, it kills your coins. I think there are better places in Bp.

We were looking for Szimpla but some guy who we met on the street told us to come here and we didn't regret it. Place is fun, music is good, drinks are cheap, you can even eat there, they offer tasty burgers... And one more thing that was important to us- they have a place for smokers, something like closed...

It was one of my first pubs here in Budapest (the second maybe), it used to be pretty nice but I have no idea what happened and it just went bad. The staff seem like was thrown on an intensive rudeness course, you just cannot spot a smile. There is this lady collecting money insanely and asking 200 HUF for... More

Visit didn't start well, when the doorman insisted on searching my partners bag and making her throw away a bottle of water. Inside this place isn't a patch on Szimpla Kert. Also it must have the most disgusting toilets that I have ever had the misfortune to encounter, coupled with a woman shouting at you in Hungarian for money in... More

A good place to go to get the character of the drinking culture in Budapest. Lots of different drinks on offer. More for the younger generation, me thinks!

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.
