Due to bad urban planning, cars have better access to Danube vistas 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 here, 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, almost right outside Jónás.

Jónás's moniker (Jonah) is a playful reference to the biblical story as it's located 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. During the al fresco season, you can order burgers and fries from a food stall stationed outside. Canned Reketye beers are also available for purchase.
