This bar is the pioneer of the so-called ruin pubs of Budapest. In the beginning of the new millennium bars and pubs began to appear in the gaps between the houses in the streets of Pest or in the buildings that are no more resided. The Kis Szimpla opened its doors in 2001 in the Kertész Street for the initiative of some friends. Then the Szimpla Kert opened a few years later in Király Street and finally moved to its present location in Kazinczy Street.
Undoubtedly this is the most famous and popular ruin bar in the Hungarian capital according to locals and tourists as well. It was elected as the third best bar in the world at the community rating of the Lonely Planet. Its atmosphere is extremely unique and special. You can even find a Trabant here that was turned into a table. They offer a wide range of programs: such as open-air cinema, local food and agricultural products market, exhibitions, bicycle markets, etc. People come here to shop in the morning, to chill in the afternoon and to party in the night.
