Best Ruin Bars in Budapest

There are often crazy art pieces hanging from the ceiling (think car-size things), videos playing on the walls and techno beats vibrating. We’ve listed some of the more iconic ruin bars that are a good bet for those over 25. If you’re for it though, the later you go, the crazier they get (i.e., after 2 or 3am).
