“A must in Pest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Amazing Ruin pub- very different experience and highly recommend.

We were only in Budapest for 48 hours but came here twice.

Great place to hang with a Sisha on a lazy Sunday as well!

“Great eclectic scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Loved this place! Great atmosphere with mismatched décor everywhere, old chairs and sofas, bathtubs as chairs, a garden on the second floor, lots of students and international kids. Plays quirky and loud music.
