Hungary is a wine-loving nation, and its winemakers have dedicated followings. There's recently been a wave of great new wine bars in Budapest that have supported and enhanced the local wine culture. Innio, located in the neighborhood of the Basilica, has a wide selection as well as a great space, with high arched ceilings, exposed brick walls, and plenty of rough industrial style and unfinished concrete walls to give it character. It also has a full menu, described as "peasant luxury and high gastronomy." Note that the bar can get quite crowded in the evenings. There's a small private room in the cellar with a long table that's lovely for private dinners.
