A unique bar in the heart of the city. The best beers from the eastern part of Europe and a wide selection from the famous Hungarian spirit: Palinka. Visit us and get familiar with the communist part of our history in a funny way you have never had the chance to do before.

Located relatively far from the classic "Ruin bar" quarter, nestled within the streets of the more "Chic-y" districts is this gem of a bar. While the decor- painted all red with funny pro-communist and red-retro themed wall paintings would normally seem a little kitchy, the...More

Nice cheap beer and great Communist-themed artwork on the walls. Wasn't too busy when we went in early evening.

Great little bar with plenty of different drinks on offer at great prices. Quite small so can easily get crowded but we managed to get a seat. Interesting artwork around the place too.

Its a local bar, where locals go and foreigners that don't speak the Hungarian are not well treated. Mostly youngsters go there, including under age. I recommend Szimpla instead. A real ruin bar.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
