If you'd like to hang out with the next generation of Hungarian actors and actresses and all the while sip dirt-cheap drinks, look no further than Úri Muri, where many students from the nearby University of Theatre and Film Arts go to unwind. Be sure to also check the lower level, which has its own bar and also a stage with occasional live music concerts. If you'd like a bite to eat, they usually have both zsíroskenyér, an open-faced sandwich topped with lard, and pogácsa, a soft savory biscuit.
