I got to my sister perform at this event a few days ago. It's crazy amazing, lovely staff and great atmosphere. It's mad to think you can fit a studio, gallery, restaurant and two different entertainments in one place. Well worth it.

I visited here for dinner and a night out with colleagues, the dinner, drinks and atmosphere was great. We had a table overlooking the Danube. After dinner there was a concert that we went to enjoy music and drinks.

For the food alone, I would give this boat restaurant a good rating. Unfortunately, it took almost three hours to serve 2 courses. Also, while I like live music, the band playing rap inside had the volume turned up so high that even eating outside on deck it was difficult to have any sort of conversation. Good place for very...

We had a dinner here for 100 people. The boat is really quite nice venue. The food was also decent enough. Service was pleasant. I think this could be quite cool place to party in summer.

Outdoor dance party plus 2 indoor stages and a restaurant. Early evening on sat night was great to dance outdoors and then catch a concert. Such a good time!

Huge fun to go to this ship. A38 lies at the Buda side of Petőfi bridge, in Budapest's 11th district. It can be accessed from the bank of the river Danube or directly by BKK ships. If you are lucky you can park in the near and you won't freeze on the roof terrace. We had a wonderful night there,... More

I've heard a lot about this place from the locals. Considering the fact that there are many places where you can hear indie rock and nice live concerts, this place just nails it. Good acoustics. Nice design (for a boat). Accessible by the night trams. Amazing view to the Pest side and Danube. Loved it.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
