Ellátó Kert

Ellátó Kert is a ruin bar buried deep within Budapest's old Jewish Quarter. It's inside a U-shaped, brick skeleton building that used to be a meat processing facility. The best part of Ellátó is its expansive outdoor courtyard, which feels like a charming oasis away from the throngs of the busy Kazinczy Street. During the colder months, head all the way to the back of the space, where there's everything from comfortable sofas, a pool table, a makeshift Virgin Mary shrine (!), and a Mexican food stall. For a Budapest ruin bar, both the beef and the avocado tacos (€1.5 each) and the chicken burrito (€5) are surprisingly tasty.

Being in the heart of it all, Ellátó Kert, like other ruin bars in Budapest, is especially popular among tourists. Occasionally the binge-drinking groups of bachelor party crews also show up here for the cheap alcohol. You will find more locals and less of a testosterone-fueled crowd if you visit outside of peak hours (not on a Friday or Saturday night).
