Budapest - A Legendary Stag Weekend 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 stag party will have you covering it's entirety as you take full of advantage of the natural thermal baths and treat the lads 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 stag groups. Follow up your experience in the springs with a visit to the ruin bars (more about those later!).

Whilst Budapest offers a great range of opportunities to catch up with the lads and see the sights, we know what you have really come to the city for. Cheap booze, great food and amazing party vibes!

Hangover Spa

Hangover Spa

If you've had a rough first night (or two), then the Hangover Spa is a great activity to ease yourself into the next day. Give the stags in your party to enjoy a relaxed few hours before the madness starts again. Enjoy Budapest's iconic thermal baths whilst sipping on a round of beers to see off the headache.

Beer Bike

Beer Bike

Take on the Budapest Beer Bike! Cycle your way through the city, enjoy all of the sightseeing that this place has to offer, and let your guide ensure you're well watered during the excursion. Well, we don't mean watered per se; you'll have 20 litres of beer to get through before the journey ends!



It's time to get down right dirty, and there's no better way to do it than with a few paintballs being fired at your mates. We can't say it's a pain-free experience exactly but paintballing does make for a good couple of hours of fun. A classic stag activity, you can't go wrong!

Shooting Extreme

Shooting Extreme

A weekend in Budapest wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the shooting range. Each stag with be given 4 incredibly powerful guns and 50 shots to experience the action you only usually see on the TV screen.

Kidnap the Stag

Kidnap the Stag

Every stag needs a stich up, and this one will give you all the ammunition need for your Best Man's speech! What starts off as a simple guided pub crawl with the lads will end with you stag being arrested by 2 plain clothes officers and taken away to the 'station'. Of course, we wouldn't let that happen! Instead, cameras at the ready, your groom-to-be will be blindfolded and taken on stage in a strip club where he will be met by a gorgeous stripper! It's all in a nights work.

Boat Cruise Unlimited

Boat Cruise Unlimited

We've got the main event for your Stag weekend sorted! It's all the classics that a stag weekend needs, but taking place as you sail through the city.

Oh, and did we mention it includes a gorgeous stripper?

Five Top-Rated Stag Do Attractions in Budapest

If you're after a few things to do whilst you're visiting this top Stag Do destination that doesn't involve getting pelted with paintballs or having to down several pints within an hour, there's plenty to see and do in Budapest. Here are five of the top-rated attractions for any group size and interest.

  1. Heroes' Square

    A well-known historic monument to founding leaders of Hungary, Heroes' Square makes for a great place to meet up and snap a shot or two during your journey.

  2. Thermal Baths

    A bucket list adventure, Budapest's geothermal springs are well worth visiting. Located throughout the heart of the city, they promise an experience like nothing else. Relax during the day and take in the surrounding views, or attend one of the Sparties that transform them into a nightlife destination.

  3. St Stephen's Basilica

    Architecture is one thing Budapest knows how to do. A great spot to take in another piece of architecture and to give your liver a break!

  4. District VI - Terézváros

    A fantastic spot to have a bite to eat between activities or to start your night right. Of all the districts in Budapest, Terézváros offer the best variety of bars and restaurants. Keep in mind this is a slightly more expensive area and not somewhere you would want to spend the whole night drinking.

  5. Sziget Festival

    This festival is one of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe. Taking place in August, it's a great way to enjoy a stag weekend with a difference, especially if your groom to be is big in the music scene.

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 stag season, and so we always recommend pre booking at least one meal during your stay. Choose between a cheeky Steak and Strip, 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 Paintball arena and before you head onto your Escape Room, your lads are sure to be hungry! So we have put together a list of eateries for you to check out.

Where 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 the stags won't forget anytime soon.

Szimpla Kert

A stand out, 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 stag weekend in Budapest.

Riso 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, including stags.

BB'z 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 bevvy, 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. Keeping their slightly dilapidated look is all apart of their charm! Each uniquely different, they are a great reflection of this vibrant city.

Budapest nightlife is unlike any most of you would have experienced before!

Here are a couple of best ruin bars to check out when planning your pub crawl.


For more of a mainstream crowd without losing the eclectic vibe that will make your stag party stand out amongst the rest, Romkert (or 'Reloaded') will have you partying at the foot of the mountain with the city lights beside you. An open air hub of chart toppers and and DJ sets that will have you out to see the sun rise.

Instant Fogas Complex

This quirky drinking location looks like it could be straight out of a scene from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Following a significant refurbishment, it's now a collection of clubs that used to be located close to one another.

The complex is made up of 7 dance floors and 15 bars, meaning plenty of opportunities to buy drinks for your stag in question. With longer opening hours, it's a great place to set up shop for an evening of drinking and dancing.


Translated as 'The Box', this party venue boasts a capacity of 1,500 in it's ancient courtyard, making it first choice for lots of stag groups. It's got a pub and club, and amongst its other cultural spaces, this will make it feel like a never-ending venue.
