A great foodie post about Budapest, if you are thinking of visiting, these places sound fantastic
I remember the thought that flashed through my mind when I walked into my first ruin pub in Budapest.
This is an OH&S disaster, you would never see this in Sydney, or London, or possibly anywhere else for that matter!
That’s because ruin pubs, as the name suggests, lie within dilapidated shells of abandoned buildings. They predominantly sit in the old Jewish quarter which was left to decay after WWII. In any other city there would be a wrecking ball around the corner, but in Budapest some inspired drinkers decided they might be good for something and slowly they have turned into drinking and party meccas.
This neighbourhood now includes dozens of ruin pubs, all characterised by flea market furniture, psychedelic interiors and an intense feeling you’ve just fallen down the rabbit hole.
