Hunyadi Gasztroműhely and BBQ, Budapest – GASTRO PUB OPENING

Marrowbone and Eggplant cream - in Hunyadi Gasztroműhely and BBQ, Budapest - Pubtourist

If you ever would wonder in Budapest where you can get on the Buda side the popular new wave craft beers right next to delicious BBQ plates, I have also a new answer you: Hunyadi Gasztroműhely and BBQ. They have opened recently as the sequel of the popular bistro and craft beer bar with the same name. Continue reading →

Instant goodbye from Instant

This is how it was - Instant, Nagymező street, Budapest - Pubtourist

When in Budapest such a significant, well-known and popular night life “cave system” like Instant is about to move away, to change, to unite, to renew is not something I can remain silent about. Doesn’t matter if we call it a club complex or a ruin pub… When it came to ruin pubs of Budapest or a party Continue reading →

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 →

Műhely Pub (=Workshop), Budapest – A Factory Worker Wonderland

The bar of Műhely Pub, Budapest - Pubtourist

(306. stop, 232. Budapest stop – after 4 visits) I love pubs with thematic appearance pretty much. Especially when they were made with creativity, devotion, and passion to the last detail. In Budapest, on the Buda side you can find one of my favorite ones, in a very cool, but less known student pub area. It Continue reading →

Café Mézes Brasserie – Tiny street, tiny pub, great charisma

Part of the Staff of Mézes, Father and daughter and Italian son in law

stop, 279. budapest stop – after 5 visits The Pipa street is a special place to me. I started my life in Budapest there, not to mention it was also the scene where I – after being an abstinent for 25 years – lost my virginity to drinking in a pub out of my own decision. Continue reading →

Kék Ló, Budapest – Fashionable but more than trendy

Kék Ló Pub, Budapest, Víg utca - Pubtourist

(Station no. 18, Budapest station no. 18 – the current location after 6 visits, the former location after several visits) At the beginning of 2016 the eclectic-harmonic Kék Ló (=Blue Horse) pub has moved already to its second grandiose location in Budapest. The horse therefore seems to be a migratory animal, which gets quickly acclimatized. It used to be Continue reading →

Nana – The preserved social scene

pubtourist_nana_entrance

(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 →

Pubfoods from all around Middle-Europe gather! – PUP OPENING: MALTeR, beer-restaurant, Budapest

pubourist_malter_black_pudding_wellington

Just a few days ago, MALTeR has opened its gates to the PUBlic in Akácfa street (VII. district in Budapet), to fill the long yawning gap and apply to be a leader of an important mission in Hungary; to route food and warm meals back to the pubs. Within its four walls, this place is bringing Continue reading →

Szarvas (=Deer) Buffet – dimension gate before Roman shore, Budapest

pubtourist_szarvas_bufe

(157. Stop, 138. Budapest stop – after 2 Pubtourist visits, but infinite visits before) If there is any cultic drinking venue in Buda side’s outer District Three, Szarvas buffet is definitely the one! It is hard to find any local without a smile upon the face, when Szarvas is mentioned. It’s an epic place for them. But Continue reading →

FASOR Espresso – A „pubmuseum” built around the most surprising cash tray of all

pubtourist_fasor

168. stop (147. Budapest stop) after 2 visits Buda is always charged for being the much more silent half of Budapest, but the inner areas are spectacularly catching up. However, alongside the „feels like evergreen” park of Városmajor, you can’t describe Buda as frequented anymore for sure.  At the gate of this new world you Continue reading →
