Buona Bologna, buona vita – the last night in Bologna

The party mod and party mood in Il Piratello - Pubtourist

Seeing Via Belvedere聽didn’t turn out to be the only聽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

MEG脕LL脫 (=Stop), Budapest “A cultural meeting point”

The vintage style back room of Meg谩ll贸, Budapest - Pubtourist

One of my favorite pub-type stops in Budapest is called “Stop” simply. Meg谩ll贸 in Hungarian. It is immediate, welcoming, not too trendy pimped聽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

Mio Bar – How I found my “regular bar” for 3 days in Bologna

Francesca and Lucinao in Mio Bar, Bologna - Pubtourist

To finding a place worth to return for the quickly waning聽days of a short holiday, makes a new city feel like a home. This feeling was the first sparkle for this blog, in Maxi Bar, Opatija, Croatia. I found its counterpart also in Bologna: Mio Bar. This is where I tried many must eats courses聽of Continue Reading

Si贸fok, Lake Balaton – The local pub and the party promenade

Trees in Hungarian national colors in Si贸fok, Pet艖fi s茅t谩ny - Pubtourist

Si贸fok has an award-winner main square, interesting statues and a beautiful Balaton shore, but when its name is mentioned, most of the young people think of its famous party promenade, Pet艖fi s茅t谩ny. I’ve spent three days to experience the difference between the already known party promenade and the real local bars. On the last night Continue Reading

M疟hely Pub (=Workshop), Budapest – A Factory Worker Wonderland

The bar of M疟hely Pub, Budapest - Pubtourist

(306. stop, 232. Budapest stop – after 4 visits) I love pubs with thematic appearance pretty much. Especially聽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

Bar Mercato 鈥 The gallery of 150 regluar portraits

The bar area of Bar Mercato, in Bologna - Pubtourist

It is quite unusual that a bar joins this聽fast, this easily but definitely my all time favorites. It鈥檚 already a good start when a place is located in the Via Belvedere in Bologna, right in front of the Mercato delle Erbe market hall but there is something more about Bar Mercato. On an incredible way, Continue Reading

Si贸fok, Balaton: a collection of pub genres

Si贸fok, M眉ller's Hostel and its bar on Emerich K谩lm谩n promenade

Si贸fok had an entire collection of pub genres. After the first four stops the town had still more to offer. It was a rainy, grey Sunday afternoon. You would never guess,that this has been聽July. I was about聽to continue my discovery with real local pubs as long as possible, and only go to the party promenade Continue Reading

Caf茅 M茅zes Brasserie 鈥 Tiny street, tiny pub, great charisma

Part of the Staff of M茅zes, 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聽for 25 years – lost my virginity to drinking in a pub out of my own decision. Continue Reading

Si贸fok backstage #2 – The daily pub life of Hungary’s summer capital

The pubs of a Si贸fok sized Hungarian town are already various like the colors of the rainbow. It’s big enough to find every possible pub genre, but it’s small enough to find only one or two pieces of every type. Of course in this case the overall picture won’t stay untouched by the fact that Continue Reading

K茅k L贸, Budapest – Fashionable but more than trendy

K茅k L贸 Pub, Budapest, V铆g utca - Pubtourist

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