Dobló Wine Bar

Opened in 2010, Dobló was one of the first wine bars in Budapest. Being in the very center of the boisterous Jewish Quarter, today's party district, means that the crowd is heavy on tourists, but you don't usually need to worry about a rowdy stag party ruining the vibes. In fact, thanks to the dim and homey interior, Dobló is one of the more atmospheric wine bars in Budapest.

The wine menu, featuring Hungarian-only wines, isn't huge, but 30 types are available by the glass, more by the bottle. When in doubt, ask the knowledgeable and friendly staff for a recommendation (they'll generally pour tastes too). Prices run €5-7 per glass. For a more intimate and secluded experience, sit by the nooks upstairs.

We visit all places incognito, pay for our own meals and drinks, and write independent reviews.
