Szimpla Kert

Szimpla Kert is very well-known and popular, and a must-visit if you are in Budapest. Originally a factory, the place was converted into an open-air cinema and pub, which serves as a unique setting for concerts, theater shows and exhibitions. Seats are converted from various things like old car trunks, and the whole place radiates a slight hint of madness when you enter. All-in-all, a great place to hang out.

You will know when you’ve arrived at Platós. There is a three-wheeled, blue Ape flatbed moped right out front which makes this place impossible to miss.

“Because there is a today before each tomorrow” is this place’s motto, and you can’t argue with that.

Movie clubs, folk music events and bigger parties are scheduled regularly.
