When spending an evening out in Budapest, it’s hard not to end up sipping beer in a so-called “ruin pub”, enjoying its particular atmosphere that makes these quirky-looking pubs so popular among tourists and locals.
The highly creative use of interior space, the exciting installations, the temporary exhibitions, the wide repertoir of great local DJ’s, the reasonable prices and the curiously dim-lit gardens are all components of a typically Budapest ruin pub.
