Fodor's Expert Review Szimpla Kert

Budapest Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice

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.
