Located on the ground floor of a gigantic performing center for independent theater and dance troupes, Jurányi is an unfussy bar and community space. During the day, artists from upstairs come here for meetings or to scarf down the two-course lunch prix fixe; it's after the shows in the evenings that Jurányi reaches its full potential, when an alternative crowd of theatergoers and performers drink away happily. In the summer, the activity shifts onto the spacious outdoor terrace. If you're in the area, also consider stopping by Nemdebár, a lively neighborhood bar near here.
