“Never seen before”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

I read about ruine bars, you had to see them.

So I went, and discovered this place. It's a must see if you go to Budapest. I can't explain how it looks, and how it feels. Just go in and explore the place. Find a cool spot to sit with your friends.

It's not like any bar you know!

“Wow wow wow”

Amazing, simply put. Great atmosphere, cheap drinks and an amazing atmosphere. You won't find a club like this in Western Europe.

“Ruin pub with imaginative decor and a great party atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The place was packed to the brim on a hot and humid Saturday evening in July. The weird and trippy decor make it worth a visit just by itself. There's loads of small dance floors playing different styles of music. A lion's share of the space is still reserved for the pub where you can sit and converse without shouting. There are cheaper places to go for a drink and the dance floors can get a little crowded. Still, the ability to cater for different preferences make this place easy to recommend.

“Great Ruin Pub when busy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Tried this Ruin Pub mistakenly on a Sunday night, only to be disappointed by the lack of people/atmosphere at 10pm. However, our group decided to give it a second chance the following night as we'd heard such great things about it, and it was a good job we did! The place was packed and it was one of the best nights out I've had, thoroughly recommended. The mix of music they played upstairs was perfect and the drinks were reasonably priced. Just don't go early on a Sunday unless you want a quiet drink!

“Well worth a visit one night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went here on a friday night...and got slaughtered on the very cheap drinks. Most appropriate as the place used to be an abattoir and there's life sized model cows hanging from ceilings!

It was 30º c plus when we visited budapest and even by night it was still warm. This meant the whole club became a sweat box and quite uncomfortable but as the Stag in our group is a police officer, it brought much more reality to the phrase "sweating like a pig in a butchers!"

A good night all in all.
