Are the ruin bars in Budapest worth a visit?

Definitely. Ruin bars are worth visiting because of their unique concept, atmosphere and design.


They function not only as a place to drink but some of them offer cultural activities (concerts, exhibitions, design fairs, and farmers’ markets).


Although many ruin bars changed direction in the recent year to cater more to the visiting party crowd and hosting for stag/bachelor parties, it’s worth avoiding these bars at the weekends at late night hours.
