Budapest

Budapest is filled with sörözős (beer bars), but the way to go is to head for one of the romkerts ("ruin gardens," which are housed in the courtyards of abandoned buildings). There you will meet a cross section of artists, professionals, students, and tourists enjoying a DJ or Hungarian microbrew. If wine is more your thing, don’t miss spending a few hours in a wine bar (more upscale than the divey borozós). Wine bars have lengthy wine lists comprising excellent Hungarian wines, and most servers speak reasonable enough English to recommend a wine and explain what you are getting.

    Tucked behind the Vásárcsarnok (Central Market Hall) in downtown Budapest, this is among the best places in Budapest to sample a range of quality Hungarian wines, unless you are planning a visit to the wine regions yourself. It's not exactly your typical, working-class borozó and it's a bit pricey by Hungarian standards—a small glass of wine costs the equivalent of several dollars, on average. But the owners pride themselves on selecting the best 150 wines Hungary has to offer, and it's true. You can easily spend an entire afternoon or evening sampling different great wines here. It's open Monday to Saturday until 11:30 pm; Sunday is dark.

    The oldest and best-known of Budapest's uniquely Hungarian romkerts, Szimpla Kert has won various international awards for its wild, exuberant, grungy style. Built inside a former stove factory, this maze of dark rooms, random furniture, and crazy light installations attracts a raucous crowd of locals and tourists working their way through the night with wild abandon. Expect a noisy, lively night here with the occasional patron's dog darting here and there between the tables while its owner sips on a hookah (available to rent). Szimpla hosts a weekly farmers' market featuring all-natural products on Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm.

    One of the most mixed of the gay clubs draws from the gay, lesbian, and heterosexual communities equally. No doubt the laid-back, friendly atmosphere contributes to its appeal. Friday and Saturday are the party nights, featuring a transvestite show after midnight.

    While Budapest was a little slow to embrace the craft beer movement, it's finally and enthusiastically exploring the world of independent beermakers. One example of this new trend is Élesztő, which combines the grungy exposed-brick-wall-and-metal-barrel aesthetics of romkerts with a fine selection of high-quality beers and beer-based cocktails.

    Established Hungarian jazz headliners and young up-and-comers play from Thursday through Saturday in the popular, though small, stylishly brick-walled cellar pub. The music is good, but the audience is mainly expats and tourists.

    The name of this pub means "spare key," and this one attracts a hip, bohemian crowd. There is no sign outside, just a metal door bearing the name and address. Walk through the door and down the small pathway to find outdoor seating in warm months, or stay inside for regular live music acts. Various hot meals are also available.
