    How long are clubs open in Budapest?

    This very much depends on the club and the concession they have. Most clubs though are open on weekends until 4 or 5 in the morning. However there are many places where you can go afterwards such as the famous Bar Piaf on Nagymező Street which just than really starts the party. Regular bars without option to dance are usually closing at 1 or 2 as this is the time when people move to the clubs to dance and party on.
    As in most cities over the world Friday and Saturday are the best days to party however there is some nightlife any day of the week somewhere.

    Trendy Club Areas in Budapest

    There are several areas in Budapest where you can find a gathering of many bars and clubs and basically hop from one bar to the other and later into a club of your choice. This leaves you the freedom to just go into town and pick the bar or club that you would like to go to. Here are some hotspots in the Budapest Nightlife:

    Jewish Quarter

    The Jewish quarter is situated around the Dohány Street Synagogue, one of the remarkable landmarks in Budapest as the second largest Synagogue in Europe. Here you find a lot of bars and open air restaurants that you can visit to get started into the night. There are not too many clubs but some bars turn into a club later at night with trendy music, dancefloor and partying people everywhere. But the main reason the Jewish Quarter is so popular these days is the diversity of bars and the fact that most bars have a garden or outside area to sit, talk and drink such as 400 or Köleves Kert.

    Gozsdu Udvar

    Also located in the Jewish district is Gozsdu Udvar, a newly renovated alley in between buildings that have bars and clubs all along the way on left and right. These days it is hard to even get through Gozsdu Udvar because of the amount of people hitting the place late evenings and at night. You can find here classy restaurants, trendy bars as well as pubs and clubs.

    Party Island in Budapest

    A bit outside the city on Hajógyári Sziget or Óbuda Island (Where the famous Sziget Festival takes place) which you can reach only through a small bridge is a collection of fancy clubs and bars. In a very small area you find massive clubs that play chart music and are stuffed with beautiful girls open until dawn or even longer. Here you can find the Dokk Club and Dokk, Coronita bar as well as Club White Angel which is actually not on the island but right at the entrance. The Party Island in Budapest you can either reach by public transport (HÉV) or best by taxi. You also will be far outside the city center so you will not be able to just leave the club and be in downtown Budapest.

    Ráday Street

    Ráday street is situated between Kalvin tér and the Nagykörut not far from tourist hostpots such the Grand Market Hall or Vaci Street. Along the road you find many restaurants and bars to have a dinner and some drinks. Almost all places offer to sit outside on the street so that in summer time Ráday street is crowded and lively. However there are only a few clubs located directly at Ráday street but from there you can go by public transport to other places full of clus such as the Jewish Quarter and the Gozsdu Udvar.

    Liszt Ferenc Tér

    Liszt ferenc tér is an all time classic for sipping cocktails, a glass of wine or beer with a great dinner and a good chat with friends. The places around Liszt Ferenc tér are changing frequently so whenever you go there you will find a new spot to try out among the other approximately 20 bars and restaurants. Due to its very central location, on Andássy avenue near Oktogon, you have all the possibilities on your side to make the night yours and going into clubs and other bars. By public transport you will reach nearly any nightlife destination on Pest side within minutes.

    Budapest Downtown Clubs

    The nightlife in Budapest spreads from far North to South and from West to East, so if you visit Budapest as a tourist or as a business traveler you might prefer some clubs in downtown Budapest not too far away from your hotel. As you might have read already above there are many populated areas also in downtown but let me point out a few clubs that are worth visiting in the city center.


    Club Akvárium Budapest

    The Club Akvárium in Budapest is what has been before the Gödör Club at Déak Tér in the heart of Budapest. Since February 1st 2012 Gödör had to close its doors for Akvárium which takes exactly the same facilities, the same setup, I guess even the interior like chairs and tables is what has been Gödör before. According to the Gödör Klub Website the Ministry of Public Administration did not prolong the contract with the owning company of Gödör Klub that is why they had to move. But that is not subject of this review. Consequently Club Akvárium opened up February 1st 2012 and as mentioned above left most of it as it is, Gödör was a very successful club in my eyes, and continued a good cultural program with a lot of different acts, performances and other events. Main part of Club Akvárium though is the terrace which originally are the stairs down to the club. Here is the life of Akvárium with chairs, tables and a lot of…


    Urimuri Budapest – Downtown Nightlife Hotspot

    Urimuri is one of the new nightlife hotspots in Budapest downtown located extremely central on Andrássy út near Déak Ferenc tér. Yet another ruin bar you might think but Urimuri is kept extremely simple unlike many other ruin bars in Budapest without any fancy design elements on the wall or ceiling it is all about the music, the drinks and the people. For 10 in the evening until late night you will get decent house music on your ears and superb drinks served to get you in the party mood. Party won’t start here at least until midnight so don’t show up too early but keep it like with most trending clubs in Budapest such as Trafiq or Ötkert to not arrive in the rush hour which starts around midnight when the queue is horrible long. The prices in Urimuri are a bit above average but seeing the location in the city center I think they are fair. Most consumed drinks are the trending Aperol Spritz and Hugo which both…


    Club Ötkert Budapest

    Ötkert is one of the most popular clubs in Budapest these days so prepare for long queues in case you show up Friday or Saturday night. Located in the city center near Basilica Ötkert is in the best area for nightlife with many clubs, bars and restaurants around as well as hotels and typical tourist spots. Being a very popular hotspot at night is not the only thing Ötkert offers. You can also have a nice dinner or lunch here, visit exhibitions or listen to live music throughout the week. What makes Ötkert in Budapest so popular? In my opinion Ötkert is an absolutely great example of superb interior design. It is one of those backyard buildings which many Ruin Pubs in Budapest make use of as well. A tree in the club and different plants growing all over the place hanging down from the balconies paired with stylish interiors makes it a lovely place to go to. However at night you might not see all the bits and pieces…

    Which Clubs to avoid in Budapest?

    As in every other popular tourist destination you will find clubs that are not worth visiting and just try to take the money out of your pocket. This mainly applies to the Budapest nightclubs / strip clubs (in the linked article you will find a list of clubs to avoid) but there are also regular clubs that you might not want to spend your night in. Usually these scam clubs and bars change their name frequently so that it is very hard to keep a clean record. Therefore I refer to an advise on the website of the US Embassy in Budapest saying that “please use common sense and take note when/where one or more local women approach you. Please note that most of these places are located in Budapest’s fifth district, on/near the main tourist street, the Váci utca.“.

    The old civilian town Aquincum is a definite must see for any tourist visiting Budapest as it is situated on ancient roman ruins. From the first century BC to the fifth century AD Western Hungary was part of the Roman Empire and it was called Pannonia. Pannonia’s largest town was Aquincum which many say is the ancestor of Budapest. Today, It gives tourists an insight into the extremely rich history of the city. It was situated on the North-Eastern borders of the Pannonia province within the Roman Empire. Back in the roman era it was originally settled by a Celtic tribe called the Eravisci and it was used as a military base since it was part of the Roman border protection system called “limes”. The city gradually grew around the military base and became the capital city of Pannonia Inferior in AD 106 when the Romans reorganized Pannonia. The city continued to grow and by the end of the second century contained thirty to forty thousand inhabitants. Those inhabitants got…

    Did you know? Weird Street Names in Budapest

    Did you know? In the outskirts of Budapest, it is in Budaörs to be exact, there are some weird street names such as: TV út Kamera u. DVD u. Hi-Fi út Yes, these words mean the same as in English, DVD, TV, Camera and Hi-Fi. All four of them are in the same area and connected to each other so it cannot be a coincidence. So what is the deal? Well this is the area where a large electronic retailer used to be located, Electro World. By now the company went bankrupt. I assume that they have made a deal with the city of Budaörs to name these newly created streets in an industrial area after their main products and therefore they will open up a large store there. The result is that Electro World is bankrupt but the streets still exist. That is just my opinion but the correlation might be true. See below a screenshot of the area in Google maps (click to open in Google Maps itself)….
