These bars can be enjoyed all year round, and are some of the chillest and most easy-going places in town, where you can meet locals and backpackers from all over the world.

You can taste Hungary’s best wines, have a few shots of pálinka (a traditional Hungarian fruit brandy) or taste the bitter-sweet Unicum, a liquor prepared according to a secret recipe and aged in oak casks. You can also taste locally brewed beers, which cannot be absent from any bar hopping or pub crawling experience.
