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...more
This is a quirky bar that would suit those looking for drinks on a budget. It’s fairly interesting inside and had a nice friendly atmosphere. The one thing that let this place down (I can even forgive the hard rock music) was the terrible smell...More
We mapped a few bars to visit for a mini bar crawl and chose this one because it seemed like a fun concept. When we arrived rock music was playing and the friendly bartender (with excellent English) served us quickly. It was fairly busy and...More
We heard for it from a friend who recommended it because of cheap drinks and they really were moderately priced, also we went there on a friday and all cocktails on fridays are 1+1 so that is pretty great, the only thing that was wrong...More
Came here for one drink on the way back to our hotel, as soon as we walked in we were hit by the smell of public toilets. Drinks are cheap, but the smell of toilets is horrendous, we quickly drank our drinks & left for...More
Really friendly bar staff and good value drinks and happy hours. The decor and decorations are interesting - graffiti styled ironic communist propaganda. We visited several times during our stay in Budapest and will definitely go back. A relaxed atmosphere.
Red Ruin Bar is somewhat of a hidden gem, lots of locals here. and surely like no bar you have visited before :)
Very small inside and not much seating, but a good range of drinks available. Anti- communist/ sarcastic humour. This bar has a...More
This is a *bar*, more local dive than ruin pub. It has some interesting sarcastic Soviet decorations and is worth a walk through. If you like what the special of the day is, it may be a good deal. Kitsch is really what they are...More
I went here in the early afternoon one day intending to have one or two beers and move on. I knew about the art etc (tongue in cheek communism/socialism themed, lots of jokes and visual puns. Very smartly done). I went up to the bartender...More
This is an exotic place for people who want to drink a beer after 10:30pm, are intrigued by the commie hipster places, or just have no better plan after 10. It's nice at all, especially to watch football matches.
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
and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
