This is a place you must visit if you stay in Budapest. It's a creative and cool night club in the evening/night. And in day-time you can still go here for a drink or to look around.

Loads of places to explore within it. Different rooms and bars. Drinks reasonably priced for that area and huge buckets of very strong mojitos

The place itself is so cool! You can walk around forever and see fun lights and decorations. That was the highlight! However, the bartenders were very rude. There is also a fun market here on Sunday mornings!

This club is the heart of nightlife in Budapest in the summer. Definitely worth visiting, unique atmosphere with lots to see. Great to meet other foreigners in Budapest.

In the hidden walls of an old factory the nights of Budapest come alive, there are multiple small pubs that come alive post 6 in the evening its a must when in Budapest.

Initially, great place. However, when we questioned the flatness of the drinks, they refused to serve us at any bar. They seem to rely on drunk people not noticing the quality of drinks. Staff very rude
