    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.

    My picture does not do this bar justice! This is the coolest bar Iv ever been to! Great people and fabulous scene! Huge Unfinished space converted into five different rooms-hookah,wine,music! Must go!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 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

    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!

    You should see this place. It's where many different bars/pubs in a building and its garden. There is live music at some of them. Nice place. Line for entrance at saturday night.

    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.

    The first detail that shocks you is the size of the actual place. Its composed of many different bars like at a festival with seating areas.There is shisha as well.Come during the day to see the decor

    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.

    At first you get scared from the entrance. But dont be affraid, you wil enter the best bar in town. Excellent food (we ate pizza) and more than excellent decoration, if you like intustrial one. Visit!

    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.

    Trendy bar on a rundown building, with great music and open air courtyard. A fee options to eat, and lots of different rooms, each with a particular style

    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"

    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

    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.

    It's something particular in Budapest! Great people, great music, really good cocktails and of course an ambience. A place you can meet people all over the world.

    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.

    The best bit about this place is how colorfully funky and lively it is. Never gets old and keeps reinventing itself (despite reputations of a tourist trap). Go upstairs if the crowds get to you.

    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.

    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.
  • 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.

    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!
  • Magdalena M.
    Place with great vibe. What's uncomfortable is that a couple of arrogant security guys control you at the entrance and no food or drinks can be brought inside, even if it's a souvenir...not friendly:/

    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.

    This place is too good to be true. Amazing crowd, great ruin bar feel, lots of bar counters & doubles up as a flea market during the afternoons.

    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 :)

    Nice spot in a court yard. Decent selection of drinks and low prices. The crowd is a bit random and you're likely to see large groups of drunken tourists on a stag/hen do

    The first so-called ruin pub in Budapest, the ambience is unique. It's full of foreigners at night, but on weekends daytime there are several kind of activities for everyone.

    If you've never been in Szimpla, there can be only three excuses: you are too old, you are too young, or you've never been in Budapest. Totally a 'must see'!

    Full of tourists like myself. Not as amazing as people say - but maybe they've never been to an art bar before. For solo travellers, it's a great place to meet other travellers.

    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.

    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 ;)

    Bit of a tourist trap & full of Brits. Interesting deco so go for a couple drinks - but there are better Garden/Ruin Bars than this! Ignore the guide book & explore the surrounding area!

    Grab a Hungarian beer, have a seat on a bathtub and start staring at stuff hanging from the ceiling. Take your time to see the rooms on the first floor as well.

    An eclectic crowd in a very eclectic bar. Probably the most famous of Budapest's ruin bars with good right. Cheap beer and food, shisha and something for everyone.
  • Evgenia U.
    Authentic ruin bar in the most crowded nightclub district, live music and good wine bar. Absolutely must visit in Budapest.

    No credit card acceptable but not an expensive place. Full of foreigners. Definitely try the cocktail bar. One of the best place to go on wednesday and Thursday evenings.

    The first ruin pub in Budapest. Every foreigner should visit it at least once because of its unique ambiance. A little pricey but it's worth. Has edelweiss on tap.
