Due to bad urban planning, cars have better access to Danube River views than city residents in Budapest. A handful of Budapest bars, however, can boast a precious river panorama, and Jónás Craft Beer House is one of them. So, while sipping a 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 Craft Beer House.
Jónás's moniker ("Jonah") is a playful reference to the biblical story given the whale-shaped building the bar is inside of. They serve eight types of craft beers on tap, of which four come from Reketye, a Hungarian microbrewery that owns Jonas Craft Beer House. Try Arany Jonas for a light lager (€2.5), Yellow Haze for a piney American pale ale with a hazy yellow color (€4.5), or any of the fruit beers. During the al fresco season, you can order burgers and fries from an food stall. They also sell canned Reketye beers for purchase.
