Ruin bars and nightlife in Budapest

Our staff has a wealth of pub tour ideas, activities and venues, but below you can read about the typical nightlife of Budapest and highlight some popular places:

Between cozy jazz bars, open-air music venues and chic discotheques, you will find your favorite nightclub in the bustling and exciting nightlife of Budapest!

Budapest residents love to have fun, on weekends and even on weekdays. With a few exceptions, Budapest has no restrictions on the opening hours of music venues, so most clubs, pubs, strip clubs and discotheques are open late or even the next morning.

Plenty of Stag and Hen dos in Hungary, great nightlife and solid prices attract a lot of people to Budapest.

The pulsation you can feel here is really amazing.

In the summer it is always best to sit out. For squares, terraces, rooftops, wherever the last rays of the day come, where the evening breeze is warm and you can spend the night pleasantly. But what is brilliant in Budapest is that life does not stop even with the advent of autumn. It just transforms a bit.

The most famous foreign magazines flood the nightlife of Budapest, and ruin pubs are mentioned as one of the highlights of the trip during a pub crawl, a must-see experience for the stag do groups and hen squads in Budapest. It’s hard to pick the best one because each has its own character, but it all works on the same principles: finding a run-down place, packing with superb items, and filling the counters with good food and drinks. Instant is the largest facility of its kind in the city and is consistently in the top spot – perhaps not by chance. The “enchanted forest” awaits its guests with 26 rooms, 7 bar counters and exciting music events, and it is a great pleasure to walk around this gigantic space.

Elizabeth City is one of the coolest quarters in the world, mainly due to its bustle of better-than-ruined pubs. The pioneer of the genre in what is now a cult-like Szimpla Kert – from the outside, it’s hard to imagine what’s waiting inside. Hidden nooks, mysterious lights and astonishing decorations that can be the perfect backdrop for dawn drinking. Exhibitions and concerts are regularly organized in the “Postmodern House of Culture”, as well as a backyard market and bike flea.

Do you want your bachelor party to be memorable forever? If so, now is the time to visit one of Budapest’s most versatile ruin pubs and nightclubs, the Fogasház, which offers a promising alternative to entertainment and has grown into a multi-functional adventure complex in a few years. Although the design is much more artistic than other ruin pubs, if you want to get the night bustle with you, it’s always worth a look. The building is a kind of cultural reception area with concerts, exhibitions, theatrical performances and screenings, so you won’t be bored.

If that’s not enough, come and join us for a fantastic weekend in Budapest!
