Overview
'Ruin bars'—drinking spots in abandoned buildings—are all the rage in Budapest, but exploring them is more revealing with a guide. The tour delivers: taking you into the city’s former Jewish Quarter to visit up to seven bars. Learn about the ruin bar trend, savor the boho settings, and enjoy a drink and snacks in up to five bars. Upgrade to a small-group or private tour with  hotel transfers.
What to Expect
Book your preferred option and meet your guide in central Budapest or at your central Budapest hotel (depending on selected option).

Next, head into the old Jewish quarter to some of its popular ruin bars. These edgy hangouts are so-called for being located in disused pre-war buildings, shops, and courtyards. Hear how the bars are key to Budapest’s nightlife, and learn about their role in revitalizing neglected areas.

Stop at as many as seven of the best bars to soak up their atmosphere and settings, and enjoy a drink and light bar food in up to five as you chat to your guide. Visit everything from semi-derelict warehouses to battered lots decorated with vintage furniture, and get tips from your guide as to drinks and other bars to visit later.

Your tour finishes in the area or, if you’ve upgraded to a private tour, with a hotel drop-off.

Great time exploring the different ruin bars!

Ferenc was great in bringing us to the different ruin bars. He explained some history behind some of the ruin bars and also taught us about the different Hungarian food! (Goulash is actually a soup! Not a stew!). Had good drinks, food, history, and culture!...More

Fantastic & Eclectic

This walking tour was amazing. They took us to 3 of the ruin pubs, explained the background of them, and we had a drink at each! Very friendly guides and great group atmosphere allowed for a very fun evening, especially as I was traveling alone....More

It is plenty of food for your dinner. Do not eat beforehand. You would never know how to find these places and all the insider ways without the tour. Really, it’s a great time.
