Due to bad urban planning, cars have better access to the Danube than city residents in Budapest. A handful of bars, however, can boast a precious river panorama, and Jónás Craft Beer House is one of them. So, while sipping your citrusy pale ale, you can marvel at Gellért Hill and the stately building of the Budapest University of Technology on the opposite bank. If you come from the city center, take tram #2 for a scenic ride along the Danube, and get off at Zsil utca, which drops you almost right outside Jónás.

Jónás's moniker ("Jonah") is a playful reference to the biblical story, as the bar is inside a huge, whale-shaped building. They serve eight types of craft beers on tap, of which four come from Reketye, a Hungarian microbrewery that owns Jónás. Try Arany Jónás, a light lager (€2.5), or Yellow Haze, a piney, hazy yellow American pale ale (€4.5). During the al fresco season, you can order burgers and fries from a food stall outside. Canned Reketye beers are also available for purchase.
