MyWine Wine Bar
MyWine is a snug wine bar smack in the middle of Budapest's downtown. With cushy sofas and plush chairs, the place is more comfortable than other wine bars in the city where high-stools and plastic tables are all too common. There's thirty or so wines by the glass and dozens more by the bottle, all of them sourced from wine regions across Hungary. For some privacy, proceed all the way to the secluded section in the back of the space.
MyWine is a project of three Hungarian businessmen, each of whom also owns a winery (Barta, Szentesi, Bodrog Borműhely). Evidently, they spared no expense on the interior but the place also feels a little undermanaged currently: customers are few, tasting events rare, the food offerings not always available. With a bit more fine tuning, this wine bar could become a treasured haunt for Budapest oenophiles.
To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. I never accept money in exchange for coverage. But this means I must rely on readers to support my work.
