Kisüzem opened up at the end of the year 2011 at the 'bar district' of Budapest at Klauzál square.Daytime everything is given to the classic coffeehouse atmosphere: 2 creative guys at the kitchen, wireless internet, fresh daily press and specially grounded coffee.The place is child and dog-friendly!In late afternoon, good wines and palinkas become more and more popular, the place is getting crowded.Starting at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Kisüzem hosts smooth jazz and other diverse concerts.Kisüzem is not a romkocsma but not a fancy bar either: the place attracts all kind of artists and hip people from the neighborhood: it's a venue for musicians, painters, actors, journalists and fortunately for a lot of foreigners lately!

Cool place

Great just for a beer or small dinner! Love the naked bricks walls and artistic feeling here! The bar is just amazing with choice of whisky and rum.

I visited the bar twice at afternoon, so the it was almost empty. Coffee was fine, the food tasted fine too. The cuisine is interesting, it's some kind of mix of more cuisines (hungarian, greek, mexican). One of the waitress was a little bit rude, but I think it is acceptable at pub of this kind. On the other hand,... More

Extraordinary selection of tequilas and rum, not to forget palinka selection too! The menu is short, however anyone can find a thing, from vegan to meat lover. And trust me, it is delicious.

I seldom take time to write a review for an unpleasant experience. This place was an exception. Because I'm unfamiliar with the local currency, the bar staff chose to charge me astronomical amounts for my cocktail and girlfriend's wine. 1100ft for a glass of wine advertised at 550ft. Didn't catch this until my second visit to the bar for another... More

Dear AustinB84, I'm truly sorry for this experience. not that I expect anything like this from my staff, but I'd like to reimburse that 1.000 Ft to you. About the first visit: you probably received 2 deciliters of wine, 550 Ft is for 1 dl. More

I take people occasionally to Kisüzem on business trips. On my last three visits, the middle-aged bartender was so openly rude that I decided not to go this place ever again. Truth be told, the food is good and I like the design so it pains me even more to write a review like this but there's really no other... More

We found a posters announcing concerts of Croatian alternative bands on the wall and simply must have a beer there. It is always nice to find a piece of homland in a foreign country. We tried Hungarian beer and stayed there for a while. Place has excellent vibe and warm atmosphere.

Went there for beers, also ordered a pita filled with hamburgerbeef. It was very nice, perfect size and very tasty. The place itself is very nice, its comfy and very authenthic. You can just watch the kitchen from the bar.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
