“Overpriced, empty, goth music”

We were the only customers in the place when we arrived at 8pm and when we left an hour later. The beers cost about 1400 HUF on average (beers in Budapest are normally about half of that). There was goth metal playing the entire time. I tried a Chipotle Porter because it sounded interesting, it wasn't spicy but it was bitter – in the unpleasant way, not like an IPA. I didn't even finish half of the beer. Google listed it as a "gastro pub" but there was no food to order whatsoever.

Anyways, do yourself a favor and skip it.

We sat here by ourselves. The beer selection was impressive and the bartender quite knowledgeable, but it's strange sitting in an empty basement.

Small and cozy, almost like a neighborhood pub. Great beer selection, 10 taps of top quality beers from best local and imported breweries, plus some good stuff in the fridge. Frequently changed with updated list in social networks. Passionate and generous owners. Cool vibe. Great place for craft beer lovers.

Very nice hungarian and international beer selections and 10 taps of craft beers too.
Beer tasting sessions and you can play with PS4 games here too!

This is not a bar; this is an experience!!!! The owners are amazing and you are not just served a beer; you are served an experience.

Great craft beers from interesting locations (hence not all Hungarian) on tap...

So come on in, wander down the stairs and find a great place in a vaulted cellar ceiling setting. Engage with the bartender, with a little luck it is one of the owners and you will leave both happy and a little wiser where it comes to the Central European craft beer industry.
