About Off The Beat In Budapest

I discovered that popular local places in Budapest usually aren't ranked highly on travel sites like TripAdvisor, so I created Off the Beat in Budapest to share with you a sampling of our best cafés, restaurants, and bars.

Parts of Budapest have been transformed by mass tourism in the last ten years. If you like to know where locals hang out, the Budapest 101 section draws your attention to some hidden gems that fall outside the main attractions. It also contains practical information about the city to enhance your Budapest experience.

Please feel free to drop me a line with any questions/comments at tas@offbeatbudapest.com. Enjoy your stay!

About Me

I was born and raised in Budapest, and returned to the city in 2012 after nine years spent living in New York. We Hungarians are a prideful people - we love to share the best of our selves and country with inquiring minds.
