Fekete Kutya

If you find yourself in the center of Budapest's party district and you've already been to too many bars where rowdy groups of bachelor-party tourists spoiled the mood, make your way to Fekete Kutya. Despite its location alarmingly near the main party street (Kazinczy Street), Fekete Kutya has managed to retain a local crowd and exudes laid-back, unpretentious vibes.

During the warmer months, people fill the outdoor tables under the vaulted ceiling that boasts heavy wrought-iron lamps. For the best experience, try to grab a seat there, and mingle with the 20s and early 30s artistic crowd. Fekete Kutya serves craft beers on draft, and better-than-average bar food - the chorizo tapas is a must.
