Some cities are known for their food, some cities are known for their sights, and some cities are known for their ability to keep you buzzed 24/7 and partying for almost every waking hour that you’re there.
Budapest, Hungary is surely one of those places.
Don’t get me wrong, Hungary has some good food, and they clearly have some amazing sights to see.
But the main thing I hear from people when I mention Hungary is the Budapest nightlife and the party atmosphere.
The first time I went to Budapest I didn’t really hear too much about all their fun pubs and clubs.
However, as I’ve traveled more I kept hearing about it.
So I’d be lying if I didn’t say the main reason I went back to Budapest was for the debauchery I wanted to be involved in.
Traveling to Hungary just for the Budapest Nightlife.
To start off my bender I needed to make sure I’d book the right place to stay at and rest my head(notice how I didn’t say SLEEP).
My den of depravity was the infamous Retox Party Hostel.
Besides being a hostel, it’s also a drinking destination in Budapest for travelers to kick start their nights.
I knew I’d be in for a wild time there.
I arrived in Budapest just a few days after Sziget, which is a week long concert festival on the Margaret Island.
There were still a lot of travelers lingering around that were still in Party Mode.
Every night someone was looking for the next great drinking hole to almost lose consciousness at.
Basically all I had to do was find the right people to party with.
That only took about 10 minutes after I got the keys to my hostel dorm.
Once the first night of partying began it all became a blur for the next 5 days.
So here’s some of the great places to drink, dance, and lick faces at.
RETOX PARTY HOSTEL.
Budapest Boat Party certainly cater to the younger, wilder crowd.
Nevertheless there’s other companies that actually have Opera, Cocktail, and Wine cruises.
If you’re looking for something fancier and not so Rated-R these would be better options.
In my case the boat became NC-17, since 2 guys(Aussies of course) decided to strip down naked and dance around. Aside from seeing actual sausage on this boat the booze cruise is actually more diverse as far as the woman to man ratio goes. It’s not nearly as man dominated as the Sparty is.
The booze cruise is also a good option because it doesn’t go too long into the night. So if you’re not too wasted from the cruise you can still go to a few places afterwards before the sun comes up.
These are just some of the places I went to and partied at, but there’s a whole list of other Ruin Pubs located HERE.
Budapest is a great city besides being known for it’s drunken good times.
But if it’s a party you’re looking for you will have no problem finding one here because the Budapest nightlife is top notch.
