A “ruin bar” might not sound like the healthiest place for a night out, but their popularity in the Hungarian capital is unbounded and their name is more than a little misleading. They are decidedly hipster, with mismatching furniture and bare-brick walls forming part of their DNA. The atmosphere is always friendly, the crowd eclectic, and the drinks are good and inexpensive. For the most authentic experience, visit Szimpla Kert – the oldest ruin bar in Budapest.
