A really niche and quirky venue; different rooms playing different genres of music (old school hip hop, deep house, throwback 2000's) that will remind you of being at a massive house party; better to go on Friday and Saturday as it's busier and the whole building is open. NOTE: There is a strict ID on the door policy and they... More

Lots of different cool rooms and great music, I did get lost finding the toilet though! Drinks where average price, and good service. Well recommended.

Been there for a few nights around Easter. The place was full of people, mostly tourists, but wasn't too crowded. As the night progressed people started dancing and the night ended with a full on party.

The idea of an entire building transformed in a club it's just amazing! Multiple scenes with different music and decor it's also great. The place seems to attract lots of young people and tourists!

Had fun here, place gets increasingly rowdy as it gets busier with increasingly drunk people after midnight. Much like an indoor playground for adults. Bring your ID, I didn't think to bring mine and had to bribe the bouncer which was a laugh but also quite expensive. Not specific to this venue, but what ever happened to indie/alternative music?

This wasn't the best ruin pub I've been to but it was still quite good. There are quite a lot of rooms and plenty of places to be able to grab a drink.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
