A38 is rightfully renowned even beyond Budapest, as it is a concert venue, cultural space and restaurant in one, floating on the Danube aboard a repurposed former Ukrainian cargo ship – by the foot of Petőfi Bridge on the Buda side served by the frequent 4-6 trams. While it is primarily – but not only! – a live concert venue, A38 fills the nights with parties too and DJs often play music on the upper deck, from where the panorama to beautifully illuminated South Pest is lovely. Follow their website for the best concerts in town.


Budapest Park

While Budapest Park is a huge open-air space and therefore only operates in summer, it cannot go unmentioned because it brings a real festival atmosphere into town during the warmer months every year. In the evenings, major local and international acts step on stage here, while afterwards, parties take place under the open skies until sun up on different dance floors. As partying at Park really feels like being at a festival, you'll find plenty of bars and street food spots available, a truly mixed and friendly crowd and an atmosphere as laid-back as it gets. Open between 6pm and 4am Friday-Saturday and 6pm to 2am Sunday-Thursday.

In the evenings, live music often plays on the upper deck, but come nightfall, the atmosphere changes and parties take over. At PONTOON, the drinks are delicious, the kitchen serves heartydishes and pizza and the view to the Buda side is absolutely breathtaking. This is the perfect place to listen to live acts with a drink in hand during sunset and then dance the night away to DJ sets as the Danube lazily flows below. PONTOON is open 5pm-4am every day, and entry is free.

Located in a beautifully renovated 19th-century building in the heart of the city, Ötkert offers a slightly more polished experience for partygoers than its quirkier ruin-pub-themed counterparts. DJs usually spin discs here across two rooms, playing pop, hip hop, Latin music, reggaeton tunes, as well as the best songs of the ’90s and ’00s, and there’s also a spacious terrace for quieter conversations that is heated during the colder months. For an even more sophisticated experience, you can opt for the exclusive VIP area. Ötkert opens when the party starts at 11pm each night and keeps going until 5am. While there’s no dresscode, and Ötkert is not too fancy, be sure not to turn up in flip flops or anything inappropriate to avoid getting denied entry.
