Owner description: Come to one of the famous ruin pubs in the center of Budapest and discover that Fogasház is much more than just a place to party.We’d like to give you various leisure and pleasure activities. We give space for theaters for rehearsal and stages, contemporary art galleries, civil lectures and debates. We have film clubs, flea market and of course parties at night. We now planning on opening the first ruin vine bar in Budapest.You can find the Lomography shop, Fogaskerékpár a bike rental and repair shop, and a pizzeria in the house of Fogasház.

Drinks are reasonably priced but that’s about it...
Empty bar, no atmosphere, unapproachable staff.

Love the ideas of ruin bars but there are many better in Budapest.

Maybe not as good as Szimpla Kert, but still one of the top ruin bars in Budapest.

Was out exploring Budapest and after getting something to eat I decided that I would head along to Fogashaz.

A lot more laid back than Szimpla Kert, with its own charm, it is a good back street complex of different bars and nightclubs in the one area.

Staff are good and friendly, and drinks are reasonably priced.

Had my beer and left as I was in the hurry, but kind of wish I had given it more of a chance.

Highly recommended. Szimpla kert is always so packed and has long long queues. This one is far easier to get in and had equally fantastic atmosphere. Multiple bars inside- open ans well as sheltered. Bars and clubs. Instant is also connected from inside. Everything is amazing. Hop over to Leibling (connected only from inside) and climb up to the rooftop for some air and views. We had an outstanding time here to some Hungarian house. Enjoy!!

never ever going to this club ever! Me, as a tourist, paid for pub crawl and some local jealous ..ehm.. girl.. did not like me so she sent security guys on me. two big guys pushing a girl and pulling me outside even when i am at least twice smaller than them, they pulled my hair and I have a lot of bruises on my arms. they did not let me even go for my coat and sweater they let me stand outside only in t-shirt and they were laughing at me. i guess I never visit Budapest again

We were recommended by a local as we said we wanted to go dancing. The place is huge and has about 5 different rooms playing different music. The biggest room was a bit young for us as we are in our mid 30’s! Some good DJs and drinks are cheap! It’s a bit of a dive bar/club but we loved it. I put my back out dancing! Ha! Maybe I’m too old for this now... :-)
