What's Offbeat?

Parts of Budapest have been deeply transformed by mass tourism, making it difficult for visitors to discover the side of the city locals know, places they go. Offbeat is here to help. It's a curated, but not sanitized restaurant and city guide featuring places both within and well beyond the main attractions. You'll also find practical information, like neighborhood descriptions, to enhance your experience. Enjoy your stay!
