Ruin-Pubs at Budapest!

If New York is the city that never sleeps, then Budapest is the city that never stops partying. For the young and young-at-heart citizens of Budapest, the trend is the so-called “ruin-pub” where the young create venues for social use in abandoned buildings before demolition. ‘Rom Kocsma’ in Hungarian, literally: pub in a ruin is an old building revived to fulfill a new mission. This culture grew in the central area of the city where new places were opened one after another when apartment houses and factory buildings doomed to destruction. These were equipped with rejected furniture of old community centers  cinemas, and grandmothers’ flats, bringing a retro feeling into these places.

The best ruin pubs offer live music or DJs on the weekends, as well as film nights and art exhibitions. Main streets like Király utca and Dob utca sport trendy coffeehouses and wine bars alongside remnants of Jewish life – small family-owned restaurants and bakeries – that managed to survive. Three of the popular ruin pubs in Budapest are all a short walk from one another and can be explored fairly easily during a night of methodical drinking. Out of the three, Szimpla kert was the first one to open and then came Kőleves Vendéglő & Fogas ház. Each has its own personality, options of live music and taste pellets to cater, so choose whichever one suits the night and your mood.
