5 wonderful places for a drink in buda in Budapest

1) Calgary Antik Drinkbár

This peculiar institution is a cross between a basement bar and an antique shop. It opened in 1993 and is run by an ex-model and actress, who’s always full of stories. Sometimes she refuses to sell particular things, and the opening times are a bit erratic. There is a separate room downstairs for smaller parties. Live piano music.
