Pros: Unique atmosphere and vibe, underground style of music Cons: Cramped space, small drink selection Many places have that ‘underground’ feeling, and a lot of others are physically built beneath the Earth. Vittula is the rare spot that is both. It’s a tight squeeze in an underground maze, the music is edgy (generally rock and/or electronic), and the walls are... More

Not far away from Blaha Lujza Tér is the hidden entrance for one of the oldest Hotspots of indie culture. Friendly staff and good music, laid back atmosphere. A pretty alternative to the touristic ruin pubs.

Probably the longest running underground pub/bar in the jewish district. Always different proper underground music from the speakers. Good and young crowd, wonderful stuff, After midnite sometimes it gets rough and smelly,

Like the Finnish name suggests, this is a dirty basement that smells like all kinds of cheap fluids - not for posh people who value cleanness and personal space. Even if the wall were full of Finnish tags, after a couple of beers I immediately got to know some nice local people!

This is what ruin pubs in Budapest are all about: cheap beer, great service and good music in cool atmosphere. Absolutely worth a visit!

a small place which is usually quite packed, but a nice vibe and good music. It is a ruin pub, so don't expect anything fancy.

A perfect cellar pub to stop by for a few very reasonably priced drinks. Whoever came up with the bar name is a legend among us Finns.

Yes, we are from Finland, and we had to check the place. The name means dirty and funny thing in our language so everyone needs to take a selfie outside the bar. And the Finns had been there... Walls full of writings in Finnish, which was funny. Atmosphere were rock'n roll, gloomy and easygoing. Drinks were cheap! We like underground... More

it's a chaotic bar with loud music of all types. Cheap even for Budapest standards. Something of a cult place. If it's buzzing, you can expect a great night. The only food they have is peanuts, maybe.

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.
