Budapest Nightlife

Nightclubs, jazz bars, pubs, dance clubs, casinos - Budapest has it all

When nighttime rolls around, Budapest is transformed into a socialite's heaven. There's no specific entertainment district, as the diverse nightlife is spread all through the city – choose from pubs, dance clubs, jazz bars, cocktail bars or casinos. The new wave of entertainment is represented by the many 'Ruin Pubs'. Live music, charming retro décor, unique atmosphere and late opening hours make these places popular. The summer brings an even greater wealth of options, when Budapest expands its nightlife into several outdoor venues. Hungary is also home to a number of radiant jazz players, some of whom play at local clubs. Casinos in Budapest are not exactly 'Vegas-style' but if you are itching to try your luck while enjoying a Budapest vacation, visit one of the casinos located in a luxury hotel. With a little bit of luck you may break even for the trip.
