Rising From the Ruins - 24 Feb 2013
Two women chat over a drink in Szimpla Kert, a bar set up 12 years ago in an empty house in the decaying inner city of Budapest. From humble beginnings, Szimpla sparked a new wave of nightlife in the city, becoming the first of many “ruin pubs” that sprung up in formerly abandoned buildings and helped attract floods of tourists to the Hungarian capital. But the bars are not universally popular: they have caused serious resentment among locals, who complain about the disturbance they cause.

The facade of "ruin pub" Szimpla Kert is seen on Kazinczy street in Budapest, March 19, 2013. Ruin pubs are bars that have sprung up in abandoned, derelict residential buildings or courtyards - that have become immensely popular in the Hungarian capital in recent years.
The boom in Budapest's nightlife has pitted local residents against bar owners and local politicians enjoying the tourism boost. Local residents complain about the noise and litter as authorities cannot afford adequate cleaning or more than two or three police patrols.
