Full description
Your visit to Budapest would not be complete without experiencing the unique world of "ruin bars." This super popular trend, which began with the opening of Szimpla Kert, the quintessential ruin bar, nearly twenty years ago, is among the hippest nightlife experiences in Europe. The bars are situated in what used to be Budapest's Jewish quarter, which was abandoned and left to decay after World War II.

The bars are set up in the ruins of abandoned factories, deserted apartment buildings, cellars and stores. The decor is mismatched, flea market furniture, peeling walls and exposed piping, decorated with weird, wonderful and random art and antiques (what is junk to some is art to others). Ruin bars offer cheap drinks, some food, great music, dance floors and street art. They are also friendly, unpretentious and really fun places to drink and hang out. The existence of the ruin bars and the vast numbers of people who frequent them attracted other, more upscale restaurants and bars to the neighborhood, turning it into an important cultural and gastronomical hotspot of the city.

Besides the classic ruin bars, you will visit trendy eating places, learn about great Hungarian wines and see that there is more depth and richness in this neighborhood than initially meets the eye. Come wander the streets of the Jewish quarter and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of this truly unique neighborhood of Budapest.
