About
Want to experiance the time travel in midtown Budapest? Hotsy Totsy provides the smooth elegance both in the classic serving of drinks and barber service. Infused with the touch off Blues and Jazz classics in the background, we provide an atmosphere you can only get in the 20's. Ladies and Gents both can get the feeling of a nice hideout below the smoky street level of the 7th district. Hear the twinkle sound of icecubes and buzz from the detailers. Hotsy Totsy engulfs the feeling of the prohibition era. Our neat and classy style can be found in our drinks and are represented in the barbershop as well. We handle our guests with care. In the early hours we serve exepcional coffee and soft drinks, and function as a barbershop, at night we change into a different world...

Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

This is a really cool quirky place in the Jewish quarter. Staff seem very knowledgeable and put customers at ease when explaining and helping choose drinks. The atmosphere within the bar was calm and chilled vibes with relaxing music and the lighting and theme of the bar was fitting.
They will go above and beyond to make you any drink you like even if it isn’t on the menu. The drinks were beautiful and well presented, the only small criticism I can find is drinks were very small for the prices paid so it can work out costly to sample the cocktail menu. We sampled quite a few and were not disappointed with any of them we just wanted a bit more. Thank you for the experience.

We were about to cancel our reservation as it was heavily raining but we eventually went - best decision ever. This is a secret treasure and you should not miss it when visiting Budapest. The staff were extremely friendly, even sat with us to explain the menu and recommend drinks. You definitely need a reservation before going. Also the coctails were about 8-10 eur each, a bit expensive in comparison with the rest bars but totally worth it.

I visited here with my family for some late night drinks and was not left disappointed! The atmosphere and setting is great and the jazz/swing music playing make it a great little spot. The staff were so passionate about the drinks and take the time to recommend to you what they think you will like. Would absolutely return and definitely book in advance!

I'm quite happy that I've come across Hotsy Totsy this winter.

My friends and I were on the lookout for some strong drinks and when we stepped in, we knew that we would be in for a good time. As usual, I've asked for something strong and I am delighted to report that it was exactly what I got.

I believe I got whiskey and some other alcohol mixed in with all other great flavours. My mates were quite happy with their drinks as well.

However, do ask for the menu because we never got or saw one, so I ended up paying 10 EUR for my cocktail and I believe I may have got a tourist tax applied to the drink. But that night it didn't matter as I absolutely savoured the cocktail.

Hello Tim, Thank you for taking the time for composing such a great feedback! We are truly happy that you have enjoyed your time at Hotsy, that is our true goal. I want to let you know that there is no such thing as 'tourist tax' or anything else like it in our bar! :) As Europe's top 30 cocktail bar with the greatest bartenders in Hungary and all the premium spirits and ingredients we use; we do have to put a little bit bigger pricetag on our cocktails that you would expect in a pub. However these are average prices for cocktails in the top cocktail bars in Budapest or Hungary. If you have any complaints or questions about anything you are always free to ask before or after ordering or getting you lovely drink. Hope to see you again! Best regards, Richard

Stumbled upon this small bar when out for a pre-dinner drink. There is no menu so be prepared to tell the mixologist your preferred tastes! Cocktails were so delicious we decided to stay for another... when on a very tight budget this perhaps was not a good idea as we then had no cash left for dinner! Worth it! Definitely recommend this bar as a ‘must visit’ when in Budapest.

We just happened to be around and found this place by accident. The best accident of the evening!
The place was fully booked, so we just got luck that they had an hour gap to spend time there.

Stuff is very friendly. The suggested really good options. Cocktails are very good. We loved spending time there 🖤

Very cool bar in the Jewish Quarter. The owner Frankie introduced himself and helped us with our cocktail choice. All staff were friendly, knowledgeable and wanted to make you a perfect cocktail even if that meant deviating from the menu. Both our cocktails were amazing…especially the twist on a Pina Colada, one of the best cocktails I’ve had.
Really recommend visiting this quirky bar, great vibes and service. Thank you!

We made a booking here after reading previous reviews and wow, we weren’t disappointed! The staff were all very friendly and attentive, with a huge knowledge of different drinks and flavours. I couldn’t decide which drink to have from the varied menu so the bartender asked me which flavours I liked and made one up for me.. it was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had.

The bar is awesome in every aspect. The place is really pretty and well taken care of. The drinks menu is limited, but well thought through. You can also ask for a custom drink. We got 4 drinks - two from the menu and two ‘custom’ and they all were great, with not obvious flavour pairings. The bartenders are really friendly and helpful.

Overall - a high-end bar with great drinks and atmosphere, but not very ‘posh’. I’d visit them again when I come back to Budapest ❤️

Second time here, first review. Great customer service and some yummy cocktails. I had the Grizzly Adam's. It was so good. Such a cool looking bar with great vibes. Service is top notch and every visitor to Budapest should visit.
