Telep is a hopping Budapest bar in the heart of it all in District 7, the city's main party area. The crowd here will satisfy any hipster cravings you may be harboring — beards, fixie bikes, tote bags, and plenty of good-looking people abound. The interior features low-lying sofas and a massive freestanding wooden counter as if you were at the house party of your coolest friend. A DJ spins records on Friday and Saturday nights, when people spill out onto the small square outside the entrance. The upstairs section often hosts exhibits by local artists.
