“From panoramic igloos to glass-fronted terraces augmenting Art Nouveau hotels, Budapest has any number of terraces to sip mulled wine in the warmth of indoors while watching the snow fall and Christmas lights tinkle. Some are seasonal additions or conversions to popular alfresco spots in summer, others imaginative creations that have only been unveiled this year. Those operating as extensions to top-notch restaurants can offer fine fare to go with your glass of red, a surprisingly affordable experience particularly if you factor in lunchtime deals as well. Live music is an occasional feature, DJs too.”

“One of the unavoidable parties of the Pest night, the "Fogasház". The good news is that you are within walking distance of "the Prety good flat in downtown", it's only 650 meters, 8 minutes walk. The Pretty good flat of the Keleti station is also close to the Tooth House: 1 stop from Keleti Railway Station to metro line 2 and Blaha Lujza Square, 650 meters, 8 minutes walk. It is mainly a place for foreigners to entertain, and is actually a huge ruin pub with more rooms and musical tastes, open until 6 am. The place has an incredible atmosphere, I highly recommend it.”

“What is it? An award-winning restaurant with a wine list longer than your table. Why go? József Bock is the man behind the wine list here. His ancestors have been making wine for nine generations in the Villány region of Hungary. (Since the 18th century!) More than two-dozen of the family’s wines are on the menu at this little gem in District 7 – as well as other vintages. Food wise the joint keeps it old school too, with a menu of traditional Hungarian dishes and classic local flavours. Think steak, beef tartare ‘sandwiches’ and cucumber salads. Make sure to pre-book, you’re unlikely to get a table otherwise.”

“Mika Tivadar Bar was named after Tivadar Mika, one-time iron and copperware factory owner. Mika’s former factory in Kazinczy utca is now home to one of the best new-wave clubs in the city, where the people of the nearby 400 are also returning guests due to the fact that the two clubs have similar air, design, and audience. The excellent wines, the superb music and the all-new interior are all hard to resist. From spring to autumn, the garden of Mika Tivadar also awaits you with delicious dishes, drinks, light paintings and cool music.”

“Spíler, located inside the tourist-heavy Gozsdu Courtyard, is one of hottest restaurants in Budapest's buzzing Jewish Quarter. It's a massive space with three, highly-Instagrammable dining rooms that operate at capacity most evenings. The menu features popular international fare (nachos, wings, burgers) alongside Hungarian classics, of which the túróscsusza (€7)—baked noodles topped with cottage cheese, sour cream, and specks of fried pork fat—is the one to go for. Hungarian wines, and almost 30 types of local bottled craft beers are available for pairing. With most dishes below €10, prices are reasonable for the prime location. Tangentially related to Spíler is that its owner, a successful Budapest restaurateur, has been publicly accused of gaining unfair advantage as some of his restaurants benefit from significantly below-market rents. This of course doesn’t detract from Spíler’s worth as a restaurant, but something to keep in mind as you decide where to spend your money.”

“This is a good place to start the night. Cheap drinks and plenty of tables to chill and smoke. There is a popular Hungarian shot called Tatra Tea if you're brave enough to try...ask for the strongest one, you won't regret it.”

“Telep began as a gallery, a shelter for the local art scene. Its crowded bar is open to the street and provides a window on the city’s latest styles. Telep’s diverse program, which includes workshops, screenings, and gigs, draws a community of photographers, longboarders, bikers, and designers. Casual visitors can drop by for a cool drink, a bite in the bistro, and some world-class people-watching. Telep also houses Hungarian designer label Ykra and a graffiti shop called Shoppp.”

Pub

“One of Budapest's original ruin bars. The name of this place 'Pótkulcs' means 'Spare Key', which perhaps speaks of the secret unmarked entrance - an arched doorway covered in vines. This is a genuine, local hangout. Offering an intimate live music venue, and a welcome escape from the overrun tourist-magnet bars.”
