The first Ruin pub has opened since 2001 in Budapest. Now there is one such Ruin bar in Berlin as well. The Szimpla kert, the first and most popular Ruin Pub in Budapest is a huge ruined building in the city center. (See on the pictures). This area of Budapest are packed with bars, pubs, night clubs, and such things.

The Szimpla kert is located not far from Deak square in the Kazinczy street (about 5 minutes walk). The walls are pure brick without any mortar (falls of by the time) or painting, and there are many interesting objects from the past, such as a Trabant car, serving as a table for example, old time hair dryer, transport signs, and other such retro things. The place is huge, but divided into several sections. The bar is open basically during the whole night, morning excluded.

This is a very popular place, lots of people mingle here all the time. Free Wifi is included with several other games. There is a restaurant as well.
