The nightlife in Hungary’s capital Budapest changed a lot about 10 years ago when an old and abandoned building was transformed into a bar from the ruins. That’s when the so-called ‘ruin bars’ were born in Budapest’s seventh district, once home of the Jewish community. Now they’re all over the city and remain one of the best places to party, plus they won’t ruin your financial stability.

There are many ruin bars in Budapest and each one of them is unique, but there all have something in common: an abandoned building or an unused outdoor space, neglected furniture, creative decor, hipster vibes and cheap beer! Some of them invite DJs and live bands, so if you’re in the mood for some music, check out their program. Ruin pubs are also foreigner’s favorite place to have a drink in Budapest.

If you’re wondering where to go, our advice is to visit any (or all) of these 7 ruin pubs in Budapest for a memorable experience!
