Budapest nightlife is an ever changing shape shifter, but one thing is clear. The best parties in the city are in Budapest baths. You can have a party anywhere in the world, with the same DJs, VJs, dancers, shows, but none compares with the cool parties in the thermal bath pools in Budapest. I say none.

The Budapest Jazz Club is quite popular, as is the Palace of Arts in Budapest with all sorts of jazz events all year round. But keep in mind the really cool A38 Music Ship, an unusual venue for concerts: a standing ship at the Petofi Bridge on the river Danube in Budapest.
