Mumus, a bright bar / Mumus, un bar éclairé

UPDATE! MUMUS WAS my favorite bar. It just closed two weeks ago… Another victim of the neighbour war in Budapest? Well not exactly but it’s still a sad news. In memoriam of what was Budapest bohemia’s headquarters.

Mumus is one of my favorite bar in Budapest. It belongs to the ‘romkocsma category’, namely the ‘ruin pub’ such as Szimpla and all the likes. I wrote an article about it for Spotted By locals website. It looks like that:

What I like about Mumus, a ‘ruin-pub’ located in an almost collapsing building of Pest former Jewish district, is the light that comes out of the place. Whether you’re seating in the gravel yard outside on a summer night enjoying the luminous barrel-table scenery (did we say ‘ruin pub’?;), or in the inside bar room on your left when you arrive (in the winter only), it’s all very bright to me!

So go there in the evening to enjoy the light – during the day it’s actually nothing special… -, and don’t miss the crowded – tiny little dance floor upstairs – one of my favorite in the city (I do like their DJ and the good vibe up there!).

The whole article is no longer available on Spotted by locals, as the place disappeared.
