Very interesting place, with authentic feel. Gets very crowded, but if you get there a bit early it's possible to find a seat. Good selection of drinks. Ok prices. Worth checking out.

Szimpla Kert was a heap of fun, an eye dazzling experience with such an eclectic collection of objects which forms the basis of the decor for the many rooms, indoors and out. On the Saturday afternoon of our visit we had perfect weather to sit...More

For sure this is a relaxed bar. Many people around the age of 20 and 30 years. Nice music, nice cocktails and good atmosphere.

Interesting bar, great alternative artworks, unusual bars, hectic at night, calmer in the day time. There are more authentic ruin bars to visit. Staff were unfriendly which is unusual, worth a visit but check out others for a better vibe.

It is the emblematic bar of Budapest. Our guide recommended it to us. The atmosphere is nice, happy people, but with a strange decor that can shock you at first.

This ruins bar has a great atmosphere with live music, a variety of drinks, a designated smoking area and very friendly staff. The setting is bright and colourful and the beer garden is perfect for a warm evening.

We had to go. It's the talked up "thing to do". Glad we did. The place oozes character, great to just sit around and enjoy a few drinks, soaking up the atmosphere. Even went twice, well worth it

Szimpla Farm Shop under 7. Kazinczy street is open for you! We couldn't take it anymore that you can only buy these producer goods on Sundays, so we made the essence available for the weekdays too. Soups with meat and vegetarian, Mangalica hot dog, sandwiches from the best available materials from real producers. Cakes, cookies, strudels from sweet cheese, poppy seed, apple, all from Szimpla.
