Budapest 2016 - Szimpla Kert Ruin Pub
Szimpla Kert was the original "Ruin Pub" which started the whole trend. They have moved several times and finally settled down at Kazinczy Utca. At Szimpla Kert they have pretty much left the original structure as it is - crumbling walls and all.
Inside the building is a large courtyard which serves as the main anchor space. Surrounding the courtyard are a series of smaller rooms which serve as bars, dining areas, and coffee lounges. The whole place is like a maze and full of little nooks and crannies. That is probably part of the appeal as everyone can find their own secret hideouts.
Going upstairs - you discover even more spaces to hang out. It is really cool.
The whole place has a totally Bohemian and relaxed vibe - and it is not difficult to understand its attraction especially to the young and hipster crowd.
