'Ruin bars'—drinking spots in abandoned buildings—are all the rage in Budapest, and this tour takes you to some of the city’s best. Follow a guide into the city’s former Jewish Quarter to visit a number of bars, where you’ll hear about the bar trend, savor the boho settings, and enjoy a drink and snacks (in up to five bars). Upgrade to a small-group or private tour to include hotel transfers.

What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Budapest or one of the area’s hotels if you’ve booked a private option. Next, head to the old Jewish Quarter to visit some of its popular ruin bars. Located in disused pre-war buildings, shops, and courtyards, these edgy hangouts are key to Budapest’s nightlife, and you’ll hear from your guide about about their role in the revitalization of neglected areas. You’ll soak up each bar’s atmosphere, and enjoy a drink and light bar food in up to five of them as you chat to your guide. You’ll visit semi-derelict warehouses and battered lots decorated with vintage furniture, and get tips from your guide about what to drink and what other bars to visit later. Your tour finishes in the area or, if you’ve upgraded to a private tour, with hotel drop-off.
