An alternative movie theater that functions as a bar in the evenings? Yes, please. Naturally, posters of classics blanket the walls – Amélie? Yes. Pulp Fiction? Of course! – but this being Hungary means Béla Tarr too is staring at you from the walls. With lots of chairs and cushy couches, Bem Mozi is ideal for a conversation-forward evening. If people watching is also part of your plan, target one of the two VIP tables by the tall windows, overlooking Margit körút. And don’t forget an order of pop-corn with your drink.

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. If you're enjoying this article, please consider supporting me by making a one-time payment (PayPal, Venmo).
