Heard of Budapest’s ruin bars? Of course you have. But since the secret’s out, where can you still find authentic, local ruin pubs which embody the alternative, non-conformist spirit of the original ruin bars? You’ll find out as you explore the Jewish Quarter with one of our local Budapest hosts, weaving your way through the secret spots of this artsy, bohemian area.
Here's the game changer - rather than a night out on the town, you will soak up the eclectic culture of this enclave by experiencing its vibrant ruin bar culture by day.
Your host will lead you through back-alleyways to drink craft lagers in microbreweries run by “Gypsy brewers”, explore a unique gallery space with squat-like basements and browse the best vintage shops and markets, cutting edge fashion stores, independent niche boutiques, pop ups, vinyl record shops and the tastiest street food markets.
Bouncing your way from subterranean pub to more cafe-style bars, your host will show you that the real ruin bar culture is still alive and kicking at all hours of the day.

A really interesting tour of the Jewish quarter with lots of history and a visit to an orthodox Synagogue. Richard was really excellent - tremendously knowledgeable and informative, perhaps not surprisingly, given that he has a degree in history. He even managed to read some inscriptions in Hebrew! Another excellent tour with City Unscripted following others than have been equally good and all very reasonably priced. I am a big fan and it will be my first port of call at any new city.
Balazs was a charming and knowledgeable host. We ate some amazing local foods and he shared on Budapest’s history and culture. Many food tours have meeting locations and limited starting times but with this tour your guide will meet you at the time and location that is convenient for you. I thought that was great. Balazs, thank you for introducing us to Budapest! We love your city!
My guide was so great, he knows more history of Hungary than most teachers. He was kind, considerate & caring on a hot day in August 2019. I would do it all over again in a heart beat ! Thanks to you
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
