Szimpla Kert Ruin Bar, Budapest

December 8, 2020

Budapest's 'ruin bars' - bringing new life to formerly derelict buildings of the old Jewish Quarter - are among the Hungarian capital's most distinctive destinations; even if you're not a drinker, it's well worth soaking in the atmosphere at these colourfully vibrant settings. Szimpla Kert is hailed as one of the best of these pubs, where customers can clamber aboard a disused East European automobile while savouring their beer in what is perhaps the most intricately intriguing watering hole we have seen.
