Elegant cafes and dark drinking dens
The Budapest bars and pubs can be categorised according to type of venue. Elegant coffeehouses (kávézók) suit a daytime dram and postcard composition; wine bars (borozók) are dingy, cheap cellars. Faux pubs thrive. Enterprising bohemian expats run funky music-based bar-eateries, a profitable arty trend picked up on by savvy young Magyars – Pest Districts VI to IX are where to investigate, away from the commercial zones of Liszt Ferenc tér and Ráday utca. Bedtime and daybreak effortlessly coincide.
