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 →

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 →

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 →

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

(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

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 →

Illuzió sörbár (=Illusion brasserie) – the Utopia of the Hungarian pubs

187th stop, 160th Budapest stop – I wrote this after six visit In case you would ever wonder, Illuzió became one of my favorite pubs of my entire pub crawl. I had this deal with you and myself, that I don’t rate the pubs. But I let myself pick my own favorites. Illuzió realized the Utopia of 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 →
