Buona Bologna, buona vita – the last night in Bologna

The party mod and party mood in Il Piratello - Pubtourist

Seeing Via Belvedere didn’t turn out to be the only highlight of the pub life in Bologna at the end. I had to go and experience Via del Pratello to have it all. It was a long and incredibly crowded street with bars, pubs, street food bistros on both sides and many-many people on the street till Continue reading →

Alto tasso in Bologna – Temple of the late nighters

The inside of Alto Tasso in Bologna - Pubtourist

Lets face it, even from the perspective of the pubs and bars, Bologna has a lot of flavors! A city this size should have all the possible genres even over the stereotypes. A bohemian party street belongs to the overall picture. In Bologna Via del Pratello is that street. Alto tasso on its side branch is a 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 →

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 →

What did I find in Bologna instead of spaghetti?

pubtourist_bologna_asinelli

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 →

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

pubtourist_Ebihal

(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

pubtourist_green_bar

(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

Opatija-girl-with-seagull

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 →
