I almost got lost, this bar is so big. The rooms just go on and on and the atmosphere is quirky and fun. Everyone knows about this place so expect to be busy even earlier in the night. Reasonable prices, outdoor seating, and a great atmosphere, you really can't beat it.

I went here after various recommendations from people I met. It's an amazing and somewhat surreal place, with so much to interest and intrigue. After visiting various other places in Budapest during my stay, I found myself still wanting to return to this place again and again, so I did!

The atmosphere is vibrant and friendly, but in the day time there was quite a lot of tourists taking pictures. Not particularly surprising and I did take quite a few photos myself and staff and people were very friendly and didn't seem to mind some curiosity. But in the night it really becomes an amazing place. Drinks were good and reasonably priced, I really enjoyed the mulled wine.

Lots of different rooms and places to enjoy around the building. I ended up sitting in a different room and talking to various people each time I went. Had a very friendly atmosphere and easily the best bar I visited in Budapest.
