An edgy crowd gathers at Szimpla Kert, a wacky ruin pub in the old Jewish Quarter. On entering, you’ll be overwhelmed by the maze of rooms, where you might find recycled computer monitors, towering piles of books, hookah pipes, or live music. Bars throughout pour beer and, of course, shots of pálinka.
Kazincyzy St. 14, 36/(06) 20-261-8669. This appeared in the June/July 2013 issue.

Ruin pub- the best place in town
Ruin Pubs remain the most unique part of Budapest's entertainment scene. A must on every visitor's to-do list, these pubs, located in formerly abandoned buildings, have a great atmosphere any time of the day. Szimpla Kert is "must see" place if you visiting Budapest.You MUST visit Szimpla to eat, drink and just hang out. Extraordinary athmosphere, nice people, food and drinks .I spent hours marvelling at the decor and atmosphere! Great place to meet loads of people form different counteries! Miss it now.
