Piccolo Sörbár

Since it opened in 1997, Piccolo has been the go-to watering hole for many left-wing artists from Újlipótváros who enjoy low-priced Unicum and beer. For an outsider, Piccolo may feel intimidating at first as everyone seems to know one another, but don't let that hold you back—patrons are easy-going, open-minded, and often entertaining.

Piccolo is especially enjoyable during the warmer months from its outdoor terrace that overlooks the bustling Pozsony Road (it's perfect for people-watching). Next to the entrance is a glass-enclosed bulletin board, where they display art made by the regular customers.
