Right now, Budapest is known for its ruin pubs, bars that have been set up in crumbling old buildings with cool vintage or recycled furniture. Szimpla Kert in the Jewish Quarter (sort of the Bushwick of Budapest, if we’re speaking in Brooklyn terms) is the one that started it all, so while it’s considered a little touristy now, we wanted to check it out all the same. Well, we accidentally ended up at Szimpla Cafe and Craft Beer Bar without even realizing it. It didn’t have the open garden full of car-parts-turned-art, but it had the same vibe, with falling down walls packed with messages in all languages. Beer here was in NYC prices, so be prepared.
