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 visited simply due to the amount of TA traffic this place has been getting and we were not disappointed. Despite the fact that we visited on a Wednesday evening, this Szimpla was packed! I was really surprised and impressed to discover how large this establishment is. The downstairs area includes a hookah bar, cocktail lounge area, at least one other bar, and sizeable dance floor. The upstairs area (where we were eventually able to find seats) houses a wine bar, the kitchen, and another bar serving mostly beer. The bartenders, although quite busy, were very friendly and provided great service. The décor, like the crowd, was plentiful and hip. Cool concept, and effectively executed- well done.

I have never seen a bar like this. Ever!

When you walk in, it looks like your in an old factory, that is because you are, they salvaged a lot of the old stuff and turned this place into a really kitchy bar. There are a lot of rooms, so if you want to chill with a pipe, or drink wine at the wine bar, or get merry at the cocktail corner, it is all here. The music is laid back and the atmosphere was spot on.

Well done Szimpla on an amazing ruin bar.

We need to understand that this is one of the famous ruin bars of the city. It is not comfortable, romantic or elegant. It is bohemian, young, it has a very special concept which I absolutely loved. This was the nicest ruin bar I had the chance to know, but I still advice to visit the small ones as well. they are are located in the same area. Don't miss this attraction in the city.

Szimpla! epitomizes the concept of Budapest ruined bars.

The bar is located in two floors providing around ten different in house bar options each one with a different style, character and music.

What is most enjoyable at Szimpla! is the process of discovering the many bars situated within it, each one offering something different.

On the ground floor not only you can find three totally different between them spots to enjoy your drink but also and open area with an open air cinema playing old movies. On the 1st floor you can discover a nice wine bar, a place to have a quick but nice bite as well as few more bars.

The atmosphere is nice, friendly and thoroughly enjoyable!

I love this place. I came here with friends and it was great. The crowd was great and the drinks cheap. The crowd is mainly foreigners so this does make it easy to meet others but you wont get to meet locals so much. Add to this the great decor and the live music and this creates a fantastic bar for a great night out in a great city.
