Recommended by The New York Times, Corvinteto is a rooftop ruin-bar and a buzzing, modern underground dance club above Blaha Lujza ter. Located on the top floors of a landmark department store, it has a suberb view of the city skyline and friendly prices from 6pm. Then at 10pm, its climatised main hall opens to a lively, 18+ crowd eager to party to wild, loud, hot tunes until dawn. Entry is usually free between 6pm-10pm, programs usually start at 10pm. Please check our web site for daily program listings.

Good bar in the sun!

Good bar, music is hardcore. Nice in the sun! Drinks are cheap and you can get twisted on less than £10. Visit in the sun as this place is a sun trap.

Nice rooftop bar, cheap beers and DJ playing house music. Nice touch with the table tennis. Staff a bit blunt zero banter. Draft beers cheap and cheerful. Don't get the prosecco it's just cheap cava. But a decent place worth a quick beer or two in the sun

This bar is on the roof of a tall palace in the very center of Budapest. What a view! What a place! Frequented by young people of many nationalities, offers good beer at the lowest price ever.

Worth going to just to sit up on the roof bar! Drinks are really strong and the music was good. Just wish we had gone on the weekend so it would of been a lot busier! Cool spot

Before we arrived in Budapest, this was the main 'ruin bar' I wanted to visit. I'd seen pictures online & it looked out of this world. It was a bit tricky to locate, was told its above the spar supermarket. It's actually accessible from the side road to the left, behind the shopping centre with h&m in it. Area outside... More

It's a underground club in the sense that it should be a little dark and dirty. One of the best places for underground electronic music in Budapest. I liked the place a lot.

We took a cab to this place after grabbing a quick bite elsewhere. Looked to us as we were kind of early from Budapest standard partying time, which meant no cover charge! We were here by 12:00 AM. That said, the crowd started pouring in as the atmosphere got louder with contribution from music as well as public. The interiors... More

My friend got beaten up and pepper sprayed by the 3 massive bouncers for no reason after they told us we didn't pay the entrance even though we did. We stopped a police car to ask them for help and to do something, the police didn't really care, acted really nice with the bouncers, didn't write what we explained them,... More

beware of a dark hair, well-rounded woman in her fourties. She is a bartender on the rooftop of the corvinteto. She will not hesitate to trick you when giving back the change. The corvinteto is the best nightclub in Budapest that I have been to. Unfortunately this woman can really spoil your night if you do not pay extreme attention... More
