In all of my travels I have found many an Irish pub, but in Budapest we found a proper Scottish pub. Seeing as Rambo is Scottish, we were obligated to go in for at least one pint.
The Caledonia is by far one of my favorite pubs ever.
One night when we were in Budapest, they had live music from a guy named Callum. He was actually very good. He opened his set with ‘Caledonia’ and then sang Johnny Cash and CCR and Tom Jones and the like.
|This stuff is so hard to find in Texas|
These are two of the friends we made in the pub: David and Sandra from Glasgow. They gave us heaps of pointers about Budapest and were so much fun to chat with! Who knows, maybe we’ll run into them in Glasgow or in Budapest someday soon!
Rumor has it they have amazing food, but their kitchen is undergoing renovations at the moment. Maybe next time!
I cannot recommend The Caledonia enough. It has a great atmosphere and really wonderful bar staff. And the booze is well-priced.
