Do you have some doubts, you can’t decide? We compiled the most common questions that you asked us over the last decade!
Do you have ruin pub crawl every night?
Yes, we do! Yes our Budapest Pub Crawl runs every night at Oktogon 1, in front of the Burger King at 9 PM!
(Except 23th, 24th and 25th of December)
What is this pub crawl about exactly?
Well, we’ll take you to 4 pubs in the downtown party area of the city. The pubs are within walking distance, and we selected them carefully so that you get the best of everything that Budapest has to offer! Among others, we’ll show you the famous, unique ruin bars and introduce you to the crazy local nightlife! At the end of the tour we’ll get to a local dance club (Usually Instant / Fogas). When you’d think it can’t get any better, the real party begins! You may stay as long as you wish and party as much as you can. Does it sound like a challenge…? As you meet the partying locals, you won’t be able to resist it!

What does pub crawl mean?
A pub crawl (sometimes called a bar tour, bar crawl or bar-hopping) is the act of drinking in multiple pubs or bars in a single night, usually travelling by foot or public transport to each destination and occasionally by cycle. Many European cities have public pub crawls that act as social gatherings for the local expatriate communities and tourists. These crawls focus on the social aspect of meeting new friends and being introduced to new bars in a foreign city.
Where does the word ‘pub’ come from?
A pub, or public house, is an establishment licensed to sell alcoholic drinks, which traditionally include beer, ale and cider. It is a relaxed, social drinking establishment and a prominent part of British, Irish, Breton, New Zealand, Canadian, South African and Australian cultures. In many places, especially in villages, a pub is the focal point of the community. In his 17th century diary, Samuel Pepys described the pub as “the heart of England”.
What is a ruin bar?
Ruin bars are something we only have in Budapest, they are a speciality of the city. There are a bunch of ruined but really neat Monarchy era buildings that instead of being renovated are made into high-quality pubs and bars but keeping their run-down atmosphere. They are usually furnished with vintage communist era stuff and are hit with that absurd hipster aesthetic. You can find them all over the 7th (the party district). Our pub crawl goes to these bars, so you can’t miss them. We also have a ruin bar map which is worth to mention, check it out!
What are the favorite drinks of Hungarians?
Hungarians have a unique shot, called Palinka. It is very popular at local people, but beer and wine are also favorites. The other typical Hungarian drink is Unicum, a dark spirit made of herbs, a bit sweeter, but pretty similar to Jaegermeister.
What is Unicum?
Unicum is a Hungarian herbal liqueur or bitter, drunk as a digestive or aperitif.
How much is a pint of beer in Budapest?
Around 1 – 1,5 euro, 325 – 500 Ft.
Can you drink in public in Budapest?
Well, yes and no. Usually, it is forbidden to drink in the street (by law), but we didn’t see any policeman stopping anyone for having a beer in their hands. I always drink on the streets by the way 😉
Which is the biggest and most popular ruin bar in Budapest?
It’s called Instant / Fogas which is a fusion of two ruin bars. One bar was located in Nagymező street, Instant, and it moved to the same place as Fogas. And after some extension of the place, it opened as Instant / Fogas / LARM / etc etc etc 🙂
Do you go to Instant / Fogas?
Yes. Usually, we finish there, and you can stay to party till 6AM.
