Located in City Park, in what used to be a University building, this ruin pub offers a relaxed atmosphere with a varied program of live music. Out in the garden, patrons can lounge in hammocks, play table football or enjoy a game of petanque. Inside, the multiple rooms house live music acts throughout the year.

6. Challenge Yourself to an Escape Room

If you like a challenge, this could be the perfect way to start a night out. The Escape Room craze has been gaining popularity in recent years and Budapest has plenty of options. Participants are locked in a themed room, and given one hour to solve a number of clues in order to escape. There are a range of difficulty levels and room themes, from the fun and fabulous to the downright creepy (recreation of the Saw movies, anyone?). For one of the best in the city, head to E-Exit – there are three rooms to choose from. Good luck!
