Kimberly Cafe & Bar

Perhaps the area around Nagymező Street in Budapest's District 6 will one day become the center of Budapest's still-fledgling gay bar scene. Here, not far from the iconic Alterego Club, stands Kimberly, a a tiny gay bar doubling as a small club. With oversized windows and direct access to the street level, Kimberly feels a long way away from the secluded world of Alterego.

Drag queens often perform on Saturday evenings from 11:30 p.m. onward. Things can get lively also during karaoke night on Wednesdays. Admission is free.

We visit all places incognito, pay for our own meals and drinks, and write independent reviews.
