In this pub, art is combined with the holiday post-apocalyptic spirit.
This is an art space created in the old, abandoned building of the Jewish quarter.
Like all other ruin-pubs, Fogashaz is a mixture of kitsch and underground. There is no exquisite design and well-groomed terraces overlooking the Danube. Here they go for the complete opposite - chaos, in which, strangely enough, you can relax.
The pub was opened in 2009 in one of the abandoned buildings of the Jewish quarter. The first thing you notice when you get here is the abundance of glued and painted snow-white smiles: on a signboard, bar counter, walls. This is a reference to the stomatology which had been once on the spot of the pub. Even the name Fogashaz is translated as a "house of teeth".
Fogashaz can not be called a standard ruin-pub. This is rather an art-space – the parties, exhibitions of contemporary artists, performances, movie nights and festivals.
