The Budapest bars that would be illegal anywhere else

A great foodie post about Budapest, if you are thinking of visiting, these places sound fantastic

Szimpla was Budapest's first ruin pub Szimpla was Budapest’s first ruin pub

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.

Thursday Doors : More Blues

Kioni Island, Greece

There are many doors in this building at Kioni village in Ithaca, Greece.  Of course the beautiful ‘Greek Blue’ on the doors and shutters really stands out and makes the house very interesting.    I would love to be there right now, soaking up the sunshine!

My doors this week come from two different countries, Austria and Greece.   They are both old, ornate and have seen many people pass through them over the years.     Check out some more doors over at Norm’s Thursday Doors.
