Macska Budapest

Macska, located a bit outside the city center in District 8, is the type of bar we all wish to have in our neighborhoods. What makes it the real deal? Relaxed vibes, a friendly service, cute nooks and crannies (look upstairs!), low-priced craft beers, and tasty vegetarian dishes.

As all good bars do, Macska draws a mixed crowd — you'll find here everyone from students to graying regulars. I like to sit by the cozy and secluded tables upstairs, though they're often taken up by local lovebirds. Once here, you could also stop by Hintaló Iszoda or Auróra, both lively bars just minutes away.

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