Been on several occasions, with friends and partner. Nice venue downstairs for live music, and good bar upstairs with nice views! Also in the day the restaurant is decent and good value.

Had a lovely meal here, reasonably priced and good selection. Great wine too. Ideal place to eat if you are going to gig on board. River was frozen when we were here so it was spectacular to look at the ice floating by as you eat.

If you are in Budapest, you shuold visit this place. There are lot of options: big concert room, small one, terrace and restaurant. Fresh, colorful music options. In summer: the top bar is really cool!

This is a a docked ship on the Danube with superb views of Budapest. In the hold is a music venue which totally rocks. Literally! If the house is jumpin' you can actually feel the boat bounce. It has a wide range of music genre. It is definitely a locals fav. Very friendly, cheap drinks. Be prepared to get down... More

Went to see a band here and ended up enjoying the DJ on the upper deck even more. It's a great venue to go see a band but there's also a great bar on the deck above with a DJ playing oil late so after (and in our case before and during) the gig you can keep the party going.... More

I went to see a rock concert there. It's a ship projected as a club house. Unfortunately it does not sail :) It has a nice view of the city and the restaurant has good food and nice staff. Very nice place indeed.

Went to see Ten Years After and had a blast! Quite crowded but friendly service, cheap beer, and the venue was great for letting your hair down and shaking your cake - a must do for all blues, rock and jazz fans. A 2,5 hour show for 20 Euro, great value and those boys can really play!

As we read it is one of the best bars in Budapest, but Budapest definitely has better place to go to. It has an attracting concept "club on a ship" but when we went it was nothing but a hall that had one DJ playing and the music was bad! we stayed outside for couple of drinks. The place is... More

Nice food, prices are fine and staff as well. Not located in the city centre, but trams n. 4 and 6 stop just right after the bridge and you just habe to walk for 5 minutes down the road. Recommended
