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

Balatonvil√°gos, Hungary – The purgatory of the hedonists

The Hedon Beers of Balatonvilagos - Pubtourist

So far, I wrote about bigger towns of Lake Balaton like Siófok and Keszthely. But our popular summer destination is mostly surrounded by smaller settlements with a few thousand or in some cases even only a few hundred inhabitants. As third target in summer of 2016 I pointed out Balatonvilágos, a tiny town with ca. Continue Reading

MEG√ĀLL√ď (=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. Meg√°ll√≥ 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

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 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 of Continue Reading

Siófok, Lake Balaton РThe local pub and the party promenade

Trees in Hungarian national colors in Si√≥fok, PetŇĎfi s√©t√°ny - Pubtourist

Si√≥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, PetŇĎfi s√©t√°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

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

The bar of MŇĪhely Pub, Budapest - Pubtourist

(306. stop, 232. Budapest stop Рafter 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

Bar Mercato ‚Äď The gallery of 150 regluar portraits

The bar area of Bar Mercato, in Bologna - Pubtourist

It is quite unusual that a bar joins this fast, this easily but definitely my all time favorites. It’s 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

Siófok, Balaton: a collection of pub genres

Si√≥fok, M√ľller's Hostel and its bar on Emerich K√°lm√°n promenade

Siófok 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 July. I was about to continue my discovery with real local pubs as long as possible, and only go to the party promenade Continue Reading

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

The pubs of a Si√≥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
