Came here after reading trip advisor reviews, it's definitely worth it!! This place looks like nothing from the front. Behind the front doors it's a massive maze of a space with lots of bars, great music and strong drinks!! Prices are reasonable and there's LOTS of space to move around and sit. This place is like being inside a weird... More

Some say this is the best bar in the world, and I would agree. I have been here a few times now and every time I bring new people with me they are blown away by it. It's got the best atmosphere. But why it's so special is that it's totally unique to this city and so it's totally unique... More

We fell into Szimpla mid way through a rainy Tuesday in Budapest and immediately it was obvious it is a little paradise! So much to look at and talk about. There are little curios everywhere and several bars, inside and out, loads of little rooms to hide away in and what looked like good food. We stayed right through the... More

A place for everyone, who likes ruins, hipsters, crowds, loud music and alcohol. Reminds me of Berlin in the good old days. Some would say it's too popular nowadays, but there's a reason for it.

We had a hotel just a minute from this venue, and we's spent every night there. Perfect atmosphere, lovely stuff and people, good music and food. European prices, but... it was worth <3 Selection at the entrance as a guarantee of safety seems to be a good idea. We were finishing our every night in Szimpla, and we hope to... More

This ruin-pub is an amazing. Many different kind of rooms, where you can hangout and enjoy your drinks. Place is furnished with second hand furnitures, that was suprising and different than other places. This place is far from booring.

We first visited this ruined pub on a free tour of Jewish quarter of Budapest so the guide gave us the amazing story of how these unique bars came about, fascinating and once we got there it just increased the amazement. This is the most famous ruined bar and we went in the afternoon so it was quiet and gave... More

Visited there in February. Queue to get in on the Saturday night so went back on the Monday night. The atmosphere was really good and each room/area was busy without being crowded. Girlfriend had her bag checked and all men were frisked on arrival so a very safe feeling and good atmosphere in there. A real range of ages and... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
