Dobló Wine Bar
Dobló was one of the first wine bars in Budapest when it opened in 2010. Being smack in the middle of the 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 cozy 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.
