Hintaló Iszoda

Hintaló is an atmospheric bar located a bit outside the city center in District 8. Apart from the cozy and dim inside peppered with nooks and crannies — the upstairs is ideal for date nights — you're here for the classic cocktails that won't break the bank (most of them are €5). There are also local craft beers on tap, several kinds of amaros, gins, and rums. Hintaló tends to fill up most evenings with a mixed crowd of international students and locals.

The neighborhood, although rapidly developing, is different from the more touristy areas of Budapest, but this shouldn’t stop you from discovering the less-traveled sides of the city. (The lively inside is in stark contrast to the deserted backstreet where Hintaló is situated on.)
