Overview

Kisüzem opened up at the end of the year 2011 at the 'bar district' of Budapest at Klauzál square.Daytime everything is given to the classic coffeehouse atmosphere: 2 creative guys at the kitchen, wireless internet, fresh daily press and specially grounded coffee.The place is child and dog-friendly!In late afternoon, good wines and palinkas become more and more popular, the place is getting crowded.Starting at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Kisüzem hosts smooth jazz and other diverse concerts.Kisüzem is not a romkocsma but not a fancy bar either: the place attracts all kind of artists and hip people from the neighborhood: it's a venue for musicians, painters, actors, journalists and fortunately for a lot of foreigners lately!

Funky old school tunes and 140 types of rum, what more could you want... We had a great afternoon soaking up the local atmosphere, a great Hungarian bar. Cheap too... :)

A popular spot with the locals, I often find myself back here whenever going out in Budapest. Friendly staff, and beautiful, arts leaning crowd of regulars. A great, relaxed atmosphere without the pressing crowds and loud music of other bars in this neighbourhood.

In the guides it’s classed as a Ruin bar and it certainly has that unstructured feel about it. Far fewer tourists (well English speaking) clients than we had been used to during our stay which we regarded as a big plus. Sorted out a glass...More

This is one of these bars in Budapest that you can actually meet local people and have fun. There are only a few tourists each night so you can hear hungarian language without any english interuptions! Everyone is very friendly and kind. It's a bar...More

We stayed in Budapest for a couple months and this was our favorite neighborhood hangout. There is nothing pretentious or wannabe about Kisuzem: You'll see your neighbors, make new friends, and get good bites and drinks at decent prices. I wouldn't call this a "ruin...More

I really dig this place because it lacks the smug and overpriced atmosphere of all the new bars opening. Very laid back staff and good selection of rums and other shots (seriously, they have everything here). This is right at the middle of the party...More
