The ruin pub with a history

Instant has been part of Budapest nightlife for 6 years now. The place is love at first sight, a special affair with the guests. Relationships come to a break sooner or later, but so far Instant and its guests could handle all problems. The key on one hand are the feedbacks from visitors and continuous improvements of the place on the other hand. It keeps us alive and brings us even closer. Instant is prettier and bigger then ever, developed by new sound tech and social spots. Our music selection is also wider now, more cool bands and local faces have joined our team. We go against the Budapest trend-flow and insist on no admittance charge at a place with 4 dance floors...because we are so in love with you!

Instant has been part of Budapest nightlife for 6 years now as the biggest ruin pub in the heart of the city. The place is love at first sight, as you step in, you are involved to the colourful whirligig. Thanks for the unique design you find yourself in a fabled forest where the hunting immediately starts. The installations remind to the ruin pub’s atmosphere, but the constuction is professional in the same time. The perfect mood is guaranteed by the artistic decoration and the eclectic furniture, which makes the place cozy for you. This is the reason why you feel the pulsing spirit so close.

A couple years ago we went through a fully renovation, today the place is prettier and bigger than ever. Thanks for the solid conception there is no chance to get lost in the dense whirl. Developed by new social spots, everyone can find their place depends on their mood. Even if you would like to have an intimate conversation, or dance through the night, you surely find what you want. We are a pub and a club at the same time: talk through the night, or party hard – it is your choice.

Instant is waiting for you with new sound tech and wide music selection. We are open to the underground music scene, cool bands and local faces bring you the greatest parties: Vaddiszkó offers the funky and Tilos Park the more underground rythms. Between the two are the Mole Hall and the patio. Moreover, we go against the Budapest trend-flow and insist on no admittance charge at a place with more dance floors...because we are so in love with you!

From 18 to 120 Budapest’s biggest ruin bar welcomes you!
