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.

“A Must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

From the outside you may be a little intimidated but dont be as once inside it's well worth the visit. This Ruin Bar is worth it just to wonder around and look at all the quirky stuff thats in there. This is the oldest Ruin Bar in Budapest, I thought we were walking into an abandoned building but was well surprised. Will visit again the next time I visit Budapest.

“Famous Ruin Bar - Fun and Funky!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

My boyfriend and I were recommended to come and visit this bar and were glad we did.
Cheap drinks, cool atmosphere, a random mix of people, crazy fun decor, most famous ruin bar and good to visit whilst in Budapest! Wish i had dressed down a bit more...come at night time.
