Zsiga bár

If you feel like venturing out a bit from the tourist zones, you could start right here. Think of this bizarrely decorated tiny café/bar in the outer part of District 8 as the gateway to a different, albeit no less exciting world outside the comforts of the Grand Boulevard (Nagykörút). Densely populated paintings include the last supper and Virgin Mary, and mix with less biblical depictions on the maroon walls (interior has been described as “socialism-infused neo-Byzantine style”). The friendly staff behind the bar will make you feel at ease and more than make up for the not exactly new wave coffee. If you like the neighborhood (which is very safe during the day), continue on to Műterem Kávézó or Gólya to explore more of it.
