For a bit of time travel, you don’t even need to leave Budapest's downtown. The “Villány” in the name of this grungy, run-down neighborhood bar is tongue-in-cheek, because the wine they serve here is hardly the premium stuff from the Villány region. But that is beside the point. Places like this will soon be extinct, so take your chances before it’s too late.
Inside, there's a juke box that looks like it’s been rented from a museum, atrocious wall paneling, and an amiable, non-pretentious crowd with a fondness for alcohol. Prices are rock-bottom: a bottle of beer and a small shot of Unicum will set you back by €2.5.
