Wichmann – Real retro bar

Anyone who’s a bit of a drinker/party goer in Budapest has been to Wichmann at least once I guess. Others go… everyday!

I usually start my night there and never miss an opportunity to bring my foreign guests.

Wichmann is like the ancestor of all those newly opened Kazynczy bars. Seems like it’s been around for ever at the corner of Király and Kazynczy, at a time (not so long ago) where there were just a handful of bars on the street.

For me Wichmann is just what a good friendly pub should be like: easy to reach, easy to leave, not fancy but cosy, small and packed with cool vibes, and the pub hosts a very mixed and welcoming crowd (students, older folks…), serves cheap drinks AND the best “Wiener schnitzel” in the city (served on a slice of bread + a leaf of salad, from 21:00) for a ridiculous price (€ 1.20!).

It’s such a funny place that you need to see it for yourself: take a seat at one of these big wooden tables (to be shared with more customers), before you end up having shots of “homemade” pálinka! And then (maybe), you’ll start noticing the decorum. It is pure retro style in here, dominated by Unicum and canoe items as the owner of the bar (Mr. Wichmann himself!) used to be a canoe champion.

Now him and his friends are guitar wizards, and they play when they feel the audience is ripe enough!
