Must have been the wrong time of day and day of the week so can't really judge it for what I'm sure is a pretty cool scene when it's hopping:) History behind this place is enough to go, and I will go back when back in Budapest. Had a beer took some pics used the wifi:) very good afternoon stop.... More

It was a very unusual setting visually and crowed with young stag/hen parties. Drinks and food was geared up for this sort of crowd.

After hearing good reviews about the ruin pubs in Budapest we decided to give this one a go as it was near where we had lunch. The decoration inside is intriguing, lots of quirky pieces with a car as a table!! The atmosphere was very chilled and despite it being around 3pm when we visited, it was a good level... More

The vibe and the atmosphere are worth the visit. The decorating is really interesting. There's a ton of different drinks to have so everyone will be pleased. Some fine craft beers on the menu.

Szimpla Kert was simply amazing. Reached there after 10pm and the place was jam packed. Please do not expect much to eat there but you can go with a big appetite for drinks, music and people. You will surely come back satisfied.

This is apparently one of the oldest ruin bars in Budapest. We went with 2 Hungarian friends and on entering I was amazed at the originality and uniqueness of this place. It's built in what was the courtyard of an old building and is decked with all sorts of things from old street lamps, to old road signs to old... More

Everyone must see it. Great atmosphere, cheap drinks (for a pub/club) and a great culture around. It does get very busy so maybe avoid the weekends but it's a great place. The music could be a bit better
