Visit Tóth Kocsma if you're looking to immerse yourself into everyday Hungarian life. The main appeal of this unpretentious bar, which opened in 1987 and is located in a pricey gallery district in downtown, is that it isn't trying to me more than what it is: a no-frills, subterranean bar where conversations take center stage. Tóth Kocsma is especially popular among larger groups of middle-aged locals, who tend to fill the space in the evenings.

Although they've recently expanded their food selections to include Hungarian classics and international pub food, most people still come here for drinks, or the chicken liver sandwich topped with onions.
