Experience a night out in true Hungarian style on this pub crawl of Budapest's ruin bars. Discover the origins of these curious party hotspots while enjoying a unique evening of fun.
What is a ruin bar?
Budapest's most unusual party locales are bars located inside abandoned buildings in a state of ruin. Dilapidated former factories, apartment blocks and car parks filled with vintage furniture, antique signs, and weird and wonderful pieces of art have become one of the city's main tourist attractions and hottest nightlife trends.
Some have rooftop terraces, DJs and cocktails; others serve food and open during the day for farmers' markets. All of them have an incredible unique atmosphere and make for an unforgettable night on the town.
