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

Balatonvil谩gos, Hungary – The purgatory of the hedonists

The Hedon Beers of Balatonvilagos - Pubtourist

So far, I wrote about bigger towns of Lake Balaton like Si贸fok 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 Balatonvil谩gos, a tiny town with ca. 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.聽Alto tasso on its side branch is聽a 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
