Piccolo Sörbár

Located in Újlipótváros, the teeny-tiny Piccolo bar has long been the go-to watering hole for left-wing artists and intellectuals from the neighborhood. For an outsider, Piccolo may feel intimidating as everyone seems to know one another, but don't despair, patrons are easy-going. Piccolo is especially enjoyable in the warmer months, with a cold beer and Unicum in hand, from its outdoor terrace overlooking the busy Pozsonyi Road. Next to the entrance is a glass-enclosed bulletin board where they display art made by regular customers.
