One of the best part of Budapest is the ruin pubs. Someone had a genius idea that instead of desecrating the ruins of old buildings, the remnants could be remodelled into dope and totally unique clubs. While in Budapest I visited every club that I could, and the experience was unlike any I’d had before. These are my two favorites.
Szimpla is full of these crazy antiques (like a run down antique car and old broken pay phone) that you can play with. Also, all the different rooms and areas are just crazy.
These spaces are great photo ops and perfect backdrops for getting as wrecked as the pub is.
Above the dance floor, there’s this cool balcony, full of little nooks and crannies if you want some privacy.
And there’s hookah.
Instant is another great ruin pub with a cool dance floor and just ridiculous little oddities everywhere.
