"Good ruin pubs to visit in Budapest?"
West Susx, United Kingdom
Hi, I'm visiting Budapest soon and have been reading about the ruin pubs. Does anyone have a favourite to recommend for an evening visit?
Need more information? Question already been asked? Let the poster know!

I used to live in Budapest & the ruin bars are the soul of the city!
The majority are in the Jewish District (District 7) & you will find many around there randomly. The biggest one is Szimpla Kert which has sawn in half cars and bath tubs for chairs, hanging bicycles and a real arty feel to it.
The first one I went to was Instant where they have a retractable roof and themed rooms. There's even a upside down room! Fogasház is a great outdoorsy one. Kuplung isn't really a ruin bar but a cool one to see and within this area, you will see loads.
After all this A38 Hajó is an old Ukraninian boat that got turned into a bar/club!
Hope this all helps and like I said, just wander district 7 around the synagogue and you will stumble on loads of them :)
