If you are visiting Budapest this summer, you will want to know a few “insiders’ tips” to make your experience even more enjoyable. These come from several Stay.com Trusted Travelers, people who either live and do business in Budapest, or travelers who visited every venue they recommend. Click on the guides below to see their recommendations, or read on to learn about some of the best picks:
For those who want to experience Budapest off-the-beaten path, Grandio Bar is just the spot. A “ruin bar” to respect a local term, this is a favorite for backpackers and the local youth.
AnKER’T only opens in the summer, but when it does, it becomes one of the top party venues in town. It’s easy to miss if you don’t know about it, because, from the outside, the building looks like a safety hazard.
Mini-festivals, screenings, children’s activities, sports and open-air concerts, these and more are part of the programme at Akvárium Klub. Local families flock here for picnics, party-goers enjoy it every evening, while tourists usually miss out.
Chefparade Cooking School
The Chefparade Cooking School is the place to go if you’re looking to learn all about traditional Hungarian cooking and the cultural significance behind the country’s cuisine. Inside of the school, this concept continues, with mobile cooking stations and a number of options for large groups.
Club93 is a cozy restaurant in the neighborhood of the University of Theatre and Film. The cuisine is mainly Italian, with traditional classics like pizza, pasta, and other Italian dishes.
