Budapest’s best drinking establishments

From the famous ‘ruin’ bars – abandoned buildings turned into pop-up bars – to garden clubs, it’s easy to see why Budapest is a top European nightlife destination.
The Chain Bridge crosses the Danube between Buda and Pest

Garden and ruin bars


This ruin bar on Pest’s most pulsing nightlife strip has 26 rooms and seven bars on three levels, with underground DJs and dance parties. It’s always heaving as there’s something here to suit every taste. Check out the blue school of fsh and the upside-down room where chairs and beds hang from the ceiling (; VI Nagymező utca 38; 4pm–6am; free entry).


Occupying a huge indoor and outdoor space on Margaret Island, ‘Moon Court’ is a pulsating seasonal club, which rocks to different genres of music each night. As well as serving decent food, Holdudvar also contains an art gallery and open-air cinema – what more do you need? (; XIII Margit-sziget; 11am–midnight Sun–Tue, 11am–2am Wed, 11am–4am Thu-Sat; Apr–Sep).
