If you'd like to hang out with the next generation of Hungarian actors and actresses while sipping wallet-friendly beers and fröccs, look no further than Rácskert, located in the heart of the old Jewish Quarter. Here, many current and former students from the University of Theatre and Film Arts go to unwind. A food truck stationed on the premises can help you slow the rise in blood alcohol levels (with vegan options, too). While Rácskert is mainly prized as a summer destination, there's a small indoor area for the colder months. There, you can run into high-energy Hungarian folk dance performances.
