MEGÁLLÓ (=Stop), Budapest “A cultural meeting point”

The vintage style back room of Megálló, Budapest - Pubtourist

One of my favorite pub-type stops in Budapest is called “Stop” simply. Megálló in Hungarian. It is immediate, welcoming, not too trendy pimped but still has a quite competitive bistro-like pub menu. It’s really worth to stop here and have some easy bites next to a coffee or a drink. Actually, its location isn’t far from Continue Reading

KáOsZ Drink Station/Italozó (Budapest) – To feel like house guests in a pub

149. stop, 133. Budapest stop It’s the best to be in pubs where the barman is the manager in one, because it feels like being a house guest there, not only gastronomy guests. To be at János, in KáOsZ (=ChAoS) is like to be house guests as well. Our story with KáOsZ was started in Continue Reading

What did I find in Bologna instead of spaghetti?

Just to settle things right at the beginning, there is no such thing as the famous Spaghetti Bolognese. I know, all the revolutionary memoirs about this city begin with a sentence like this, but still. In my eyes, Bologna had to get over a lot of other misconceptions too, but this city managed it and Continue Reading

Nana – The preserved social scene

(87. stop, 70. Budapest stop, after 6 visits) There are a couple of surprisingly casual pubs even in the upper-class fifth district. Supposedly and unfortunately, there are less and less of them and we could exactly count their number as it is getting quite limited. From these, I introduce Nana first, which is located by Continue Reading

Ebihal (=Tadpole): Pub-Sanctuary on water, next to Budapest

(390. stop, 1st. Budakalász stop – after one visit) We were investigating an urban small town legend this time. I heard, there was a little tavern on a ferry somewhere, just outside Budapest, that is still in operation. When the ferryman has business on the other shore of the river, you are basically transported too, while Continue Reading

2nd stop, instead of Sissi Kávéház és söröző: Green Caffe and bar – A 90’s confectionerey on the carnival of pubs

(2nd stop, 2nd Budapest stop after 4 visit ) The story of the actual first day of my pub crawl continues. On the first day of my continuous pub crawl I dropped into the Sissi kávéház és söröző (Sissi coffeehouse and brasserie) as second stop, in an even outer part of the Seventh District. This name Continue Reading

HOW IT ALL BEGAN – PART ONE: The first station zero – Maxi bar

Most people ask me how did I come to the idea to start a blog about pubcrawling. The answer wouldn’t be complete due to only one reason, although so many rivers of my life ran into this direction, and once they met, they created this idea with an immediate yes on it in my mind. Continue Reading
