Cocktail Bars in Budapest

April 23rd, 2024

Budapest may be famous for its ruin bars, but if you're craving something special in your glass, perhaps a cocktail bar would be more up your alley. For drinks made with flair and pizazz, as well as bars with unique atmospheres, check out this list of cocktail bars in Budapest.

Hotsy Totsy

Feel like going back to the Roaring 20s? This speakeasy-style bar has been a fixture of Budapest's party district for years now (it's even won an award for being one of the top 500 bars in the world!).

While not completely hidden, the prohibition era bar is tucked off the street, so be sure to keep a sharp eye out. Once you find it, slide into a leather booth, order a creative cocktail, and enjoy this cozy bar with excellent service!

Neverland Bar and Escape Room

People may come to Neverland for their escape rooms, but part of what makes the bar so popular are its whimsical cocktails.

Choose from a long list of unique drinks and sip your cocktail in this urban neon jungle. And who knows? After a few you might even try your hand at an escape room!

Tuk Tuk Bar

Close to the famed Opera House, Tuk Tuk Bar takes its inspiration from the Far East. Shanghai in the 1920s, to be exact.

Sit down to one of their carefully crafted cocktails (they were voted "Best Cocktails in Budapest" by TripAdvisor in 2017, after all), and if you're lucky, you'll even snag the hanging seat by the window.


Boutiq' Bar creates a cozy atmosphere that's dedicated to beautiful cocktails. (Half the fun of cocktails is watching passionate bartenders make them, after all). Their creative bartenders take inspiration from everything around them, so you can be sure to find a drink that hits the spot! Go explore their menu and find the drink that's perfect for you!
