Budapest Nightlife: the best parties in the city


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.

Are you curious why? Because the spa parties are so special, in warm spring waters with lots of good minerals. Just this alone adds a lot to the boring routine of partying. Pick a date for a Sparty, and enjoy!

Now where can you go, which baths in Budapest are ready for party folks? Budapest bath parties have seasonal locations:

Szechenyi Bath Parties: June, July, August, September, New Year’s Eve Bath Party

Lukacs Bath Parties
: Feb, March, April, May, October, November, December

Budapest nightlife is best at the weekends. Come on a Friday, take a boat party in Budapest on a Friday, then plunge into the thermal pools on Saturday sparties

New Wine Festival in Budapest


There are many fine wine festivals in Budapest Hungary, what makes the Budapest New Wine Festival special is both its wines and timing as well as its location.

One of the locations is Vajdahunyad Castle: New Wine Festival in Vajdahunyad Castle

The newly made wines are presented on St Martin’s Day in Budapest, at Hotel Gellert, built together with the beautiful Art Nouveau Gellert Spa. The festival venue is partly in the main hall of Gellert Bath.

Here are some of the best St Martin’s Day events in Budapest. on or around November 11, each year.

The daily tickets are cheap (HUF 2,990 for a daily pass with a glass and a wine coupon).

If you are staying in Budapest in early November, getting some ideas about things to do in Budapest at this time of the year, specifically on St Martin’s Day, this is a nice weekend for solo travelers, couples, or families too.

St Martin’s Day is worth a visit in Szentendre too. Here are some nice photos by Rolling in Budapest

Similarly to Hungarian St Martin menus, you can eat roast goose, red cabbage and dumplings (in Hungary mashed potatoes with onions) in Wien, Austria. The young wines are baptized

St Martin’s Day in Venice
Venetian children run through the city of Venice, Italy. While running, they keep banging pots and pans with wooden spoons. The kids are given  a few coins. Special cakes depicting St Martin are baked and sold in Venice.
