    5 Places For A Great Date In Budapest

    • 12 Feb 2018 6:12 PM

    This piece is about Budapest’s best spots to take a girl or boy on a first date, or on a date night, and of course it's intended to be informative and inspiring...The fact is I hadn't been on a first date in a very long time, and until very recently I’d only been on one real first date, twelve years ago in Luton. To make a long story short, recently I needed to start dating again, and for all those romantic types out there like me who fancy a less obvious place to take a date, look no further than this list put together by @expatsintheloop.

    Mulled Beer & Wine Festival, Now On Until 14 Jan

    We all know mulled wine as a Hungarian winter warmer, but have you ever heard of mulled beer? Mulled (meaning “warmed”) beer has actually been around for centuries, and between the 1500-1800's it was the preferred way of enjoying beer in taverns. <br><br>Refrigeration as we know it didn’t exist back then of course, and so most beverages (including beer) were drunk at room, cellar or sometimes warmer temperatures. As with wine and cider, mulled beer is great for the winter season here, and comes in a great variety of flavor combinations. <br><br>More good news, you have the chance to taste a good selection these days at Bálna Budapest.
