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 →

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 →

Korona (=Crown) brasserie, the cellar treasury

pubtourist_korona_budapest

As we leave the downtown behind at the Keleti Railway Station, the number of the pubs is drastically decreasing, so every single piece should be estimated. Let me introduce Korona, the geographically second to last pub of the here already calmed down party district. This is an actual treasury, which quasi created a museum of itself with Continue reading →

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

pubtourist_kaosz_entrance

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

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 →

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 →

From “hat cure” to pub crawl

pubtourist-naples-coffee-aperol

This is how I actually started my pub crawl with (so far) more than 440 stations. I started my tour in Budapest, on 7th of October and realized two things that day. 1. I had a sore throat. 2. I was missing myself again. I returned two weeks ago from my first holiday spent alone, from Continue reading →
