There are countless of ruin pubs and clubs in the heart of Budapest. These old abandoned buildings in the Jewish Quarter where transformed into -nowadays quite famous- bars at the beginning of the millenium. The places were filled up with all kind of mismatched furnitures, to give them a unique and eclectic interior.
🇭🇺 Here I collected the best and most famous ruin bars and clubs 🏚️

Mazel Tov 🌿
Visit Mazel Tov if you are into gastro. It is not like the above mentioned places, more focusing on gastronomy. This middle eastern restaurant has a well designed, industrial-chic interior, offering Israeli and other Mediterranean dishes. The restaurant is just a few steps away from Fogas.
