Pub Review: Fogashaz Budapest, Locals Alternative To Szimpla Kert
Fogasház is a mixture of a 'ruin pub' and an open air garden bar. Located in the popular seventh district of Budapest, it is one of the most popular places in town to hang out and have a drink with locals. The place has brilliant indoor areas where you can sit down and have a chat, play table football and have a drink, however when the weather allows the outdoor garden is great for dancing and having fun until 04.00am (when the place closes).

Fogasház is also known as Fogaskert. The Hungarian word „fog” means tooth, „ház” means house and „kert” garden. In other words the place is known as the tooth house and the tooth garden.

Fogasház opened in 2009, closed down for a while and then reopened in 2010. Since then it has received guests from all over the world and it is for sure one of the most popular pubs in the seventh district of Budapest together with for example Szimpla kert. They arrange concerts and special events regularly in Fogasház and sometimes they arrange markets where people buy second hand stuff to support positive initiatives around in Hungary.

If you look for a place to mingle with the locals Fogasház is a good alternative.

Fogasház prices:

0,5l draught beer – 500 HUF
0,1l wine – 200 HUF
