Restaurant details
Good for: Large groups, Bar scene

Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
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.

We loved this place, the drinks were super cheap (I mean cheaper than the usual Budapest prices), we didn't eat here but the portions looked huge. The music was fab and the decor - well it took shabby chic to the extreme. It is a bit grubby, especially the toilets which get a bit smelly after a while as the place gets so rammed (even in winter), but we loved it and went back two nights in a row during our trip.

If you want eclectic and atmosphere then come here! Is really bizarre (you can drink your beer whilst sitting in the back of an old car or a dentist chair to name a few!) cool, hip and quirky!

I was looking for a place to hang out on a Sunday night in Budapest. I visited a few before arriving there, and all were almost empty or not that exciting. But when I arrived at the Szimpla, it was amazing. So many people, good music and good atmosphere.
I was there alone, but it was easy to approach people and have a chat, as the atmosphere was very welcoming. This should be very much appreciated as I didn't get this feeling in many places around.
Also, the crowd there were not all too young, a mix of expats, tourists and locals. There was good music, and the staff seemed nice. Highly recommended!

Have you ever been between real ruins???... old house, dirty walls, old furniture????..... like a flea market as restaurant.....crazy environment! But fantastic, atmosphere, hundreds of people drinking, chatting, relaxing.
No tie will be needed! Just good mood and some tolerance... to adapt to the place. You will never forget it.

Huge bar hidden inside small Budapest streets. Read in trip advisor that it's number 3 bar in Europe and decided to check it out. Perfect for people who want to have extremely casual night out with friends in a place with its own relaxed atmosphere.it's a big space with several rooms and garden where u can either enjoy ur drink listening to some trance music surrounded by computer screens, or watch a movie in the huge white screen on the wall or enjoy a jazz band while sitting in some old car which stands in the middle of the garden and all of it at the same time. Honestly, loved it. The place has its spirit and if u come with open mind and in a good mood, I'll definitely enjoy it.
