If you only have one night in Budapest and you want to party, Szimpla Kert or Simple Garden [Budapest, Kazinczy u. 14, 1075 Hungary] is the place to spend it. The city has a unique bar scene with containing ruin pubs, bars which were established in post-WWII ruined buildings of the Jewish quarter. One mans trash is another mans treasure. These popular pubs are full of mildly grungy artistic junk somehow evolving into an absolutely enchanted atmosphere. This is a must see destination even if you aren’t a drinker, just to observe the art and artifacts as if in a museum.
Two innocent girls in Budapest exploring Szimpla Kert were transformed into competitive beasts and invested a decent sum of money and time into a foosball tournament all of their own. I regret nothing. This night was one of our most cherished memories of pure unadulterated silliness. Oh, make sure you check out the bathrooms upstairs (don’t worry, they’re not all like this).
