Budapest - A Legendary Birthday Location

'In Budapest, you'll find experiences like nothing else in Europe.' - Rick Steves

Did you know Budapest is home to 123 geothermal springs? Part of what makes this location so distinct is how they have managed to meld the cities nature and history into the everyday, to make an experience beyond the normal.

Unknown to many, Budapest was once two different cities that later merged to become the Hungarian capital, which is why you will often see the two sides of the city referred to as Buda and Pest.

Your Budapest party will have you covering its entirety as you take full of advantage of the natural thermal baths and treat your friends to a spa break like no other. The perfect way to relax and recoup between nights out, our Hangover Spa remains an ever popular activity for our groups.

Here are five of the top-rated attractions for any group size and interest.

Best Restaurants to Eat In Budapest


At some point during your time out and about, you'll need to stop for some fuel and no, we don't mean more alcohol!

Groups of over 6 can often be difficult to get into venues in the height of the season, and so we always recommend pre booking at least one meal during your stay. Choose between a hearty 3 course meal, a Medieval Banquet or a brilliant Bottomless Dinner!

Despite having your meals planned out, we know sometimes the most spontaneous plans can be the best, and after a long morning battling it out in the Escape Room and before you head onto your Nude Life Drawing class, your girls are sure to be hungry! So, we have put together a list of eateries for you to check out.

Whether you are after a light bite or some good grub to soak up the beer, between Buda and Pest, you are sure to find a meal your mates won't forget anytime soon.

Szimpla Kert

A standout, even amongst the weird and wonderful that makes up the iconic ruin bars Budapest is known for, Szimpla Kert is not only one of the best of its kind but the oldest! It is more than it's range of cocktails and craft beers that keep drawing crowds back to the vibrant venue, but the live music, film screening's, DJ sets, and even a flea market in Sundays! With street style food and delicious meals to keep you full, day or night, the Szimpla Kert beer gardens is a must visit for your weekend in Budapest.

Ristorante & Terrace

For those that are looking for a picturesque place to dine, this beautiful evening dinner spot is a great option. With an Italian and Mediterranean menu, it attracts lots of large groups.

Bar & Grill

This spot is a preferred choice for those who want a more traditional but international range of food. Popular for burgers, it's a great place for sitting down quickly to line the stomach before painting the town red!

There are plenty of other options when it comes to restaurants and places to enjoy light bites. We suggest trying some traditional Hungarian food where possible!



Best Bars to Visit in Budapest

Moving across from Buda to the nightlife in Pest side, whether it be for a bar crawl or cocktails, the options for your group are endless, and not limited to your traditional bars.

If you've not heard of them before, ruin bars are exactly as you imagine. Buildings that would have been otherwise abandoned (ruins), converted into ruin pubs, bars, and entertainment hubs.

An open air hub of chart toppers and and DJ sets that will have you out to see the sun rise.>/p>
