Description: 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.

“Cool venue, but everyone knows about it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I like to go to Szimpla in the afternoon or evening for a few cheap beers. It is a huge space so you can always find a little nook to relax in. I would avoid going on weekend nights because it is so crowded that you can't really enjoy the atmosphere.

“Most original place visited in Budapest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

I was totally impressed with this place. From the outside it looks like any other alternative bar, but when inside it is totally original! Seats from bathtubs and car seats, cosy corners, and mostly half the pub is in a court yard outside. First time I heard the term 'ruin pub', loved it!

“Stylish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a great place to meet up with friends or just visit once. It is relaxed and classy in the most off the wall kind of way. Typical to Budapest this is a place where you can go and just relax and enjoy yourself.
