    It's like East London's Cargo or Berlin's Katerholzig. Cool atmosphere, very hip decoration & surprisingly packed even on a monday night. It's a must in Budapest but be careful it's a cash-only bar!

    Every Sunday morning this nice ruin pub, transforms itself into a small farmer market with very nice handmade thinks to buy. You can find here, paprika products, excellent cheese, bread and sausages.

    A Budapest classic and must visit. But if you want the best experience go during the day for a coffee or for the Sunday farmers market. In the summer at nights, there's a line to get in and tourists.

    Amazing place! The music selection is great, there's a pretty good selection of wines and draught beers. The mood is everything though, the decor is amazing. Great place to hang out with friends!

    The mother of all ruin pubs, Szimpla Kert is mostly visited by foreigners. Bar menu holds no surprises, while the menu consists of bar dishes. Remains a perfect place to meet people from near and far. Read more

    What a crazy place, craziness everywhere. Enjoy a Gulyás on the upper floor with a beer or a Pálinka and then to the ground floor, continue drinking in one of the rooms, or on the Trabi in the garden.

    The coolest place for night in Budapest. There are many colorful objects there. Some people recommend to me to drink honey beer, actually I dont like to much, but you can try many drinks

    One of if not the coolest effing pub I've been too. It's like Disney World for adults. Different stories and different rooms so you can enjoy it just the way you want.

    Ambience is very attractive, actually here you can find different bars. We ate chicken bites and drink beer, and had fun. If you are in Budapest, you need to have beer here.

    This eclectic psychedelic wasteland is an enormous complex decorated with random furniture. Despite sounding like an utter hell hole, Szimpla Kert is badass, and definitely a must see in Budapest.

    Been here yesterday evening and I liked it A LOT. The place is crowded with nice people, good music, cheap beer - 590ft a glass. I'll come here every time I get the occasion. ❤️

    If you're into MESSED UP COOL, this place is an ABSOLUTE MUST! Not to mention the great quality craft beers on tap in the beer bar and by the bottle downstairs 😍😍😍

    Original & best ruin pub in Budapest. What a brilliant way to use abandoned buildings. Creatively furnished with flea market, dumpster, abandoned finds. Quirky & fun place.

    This place is ghetto yet cool. It's amazing what someone can do with random scrap. This place is unique, lovely and vibrant. Every space has a bar which is great. Get the shisha downstairs.

    nice cocktails, rooms to explore, great music, live band (!!) too many safeguards with grumpy faces watching every move, crowdy, burgers 3/5, watery long drinks

    What can I say that hasn't already been said about this place? Wonderfully bonkers, great music, constantly busy and supremely good fun. If you visit Budapest without coming here you're missing out.

    Coming here was like stepping into an magical world. A maze of large and small rooms, where they serve snacks and carrots (!) in addition to drinks, beer and wine. A great place to hang out!

    Amazing atmosphere. If you have one night in Budapest, you simply must come here. Drinks tend to cost slightly more than what you would normally find in Budapest, but the selection is fantastic.

    On entering, you’ll be overwhelmed by the maze of rooms, where you might find recycled computer monitors, towering piles of books, hookah pipes, or live music. Read more

    the most authentic ruin pub of budapest, an absolute must-see for tourists. they often have a dj who plays art rock, and every now and then they host live music events as well.

    We dressed so good for this place. If you wanna go, you must go very earlier and dress like youre at home. Place is full of with little hippie style. But an amazing example for "ruin pubs"

    The cocktails are amazing, the music is good and the atmosphere is so cool, try their shisha , they are very good too but sometimes you have to wait a bit too long for it :)

    Very big "Ruin Pub" of Budapest. Big open area in the middle where people sit, stand or dance. Sides are for drinking inside. There are two floors, plenty of different rooms. Burgers are amazing.

    Very interesting pub that has a huge lot more to it than it looks from outside. It's really like a place of wonders. Gorgeous women, cool guys. Bartenders never change a wrong drink, though.

    One of the first ruin pubs. Worth to sit in for a beer but you will find the chairs uncomfortable really soon :) If so, walk the street because you will find lots of similar venues ;)

    it is inside a ruin, inside there is a street surrounded by bars. Great place to start the night, drink and chat. Very crowded at weekends and absolutely worth a visit.
  • Evgenia U.
    Authentic ruin bar in the most crowded nightclub district, live music and good wine bar. Absolutely must visit in Budapest.
  • Banana Nut Bread O.
    Giant bar with lots of fun over stimulating rooms, lots of attention was paid to the interior design and recycled materials. I wish it was crowded with actually cool people and not cheesy frat boys.

    Yes. Definitely something different. I went in the afternoon and the at night. The afternoon was nice and chilled, not too busy and laid back. The night was busy but buzzing atmosphere.

    Really cool vibes of half-squat, half-ruin bar. Best parties in town, best groups of people. Unfortunately, smoking is allowed inside.
