Tuk Tuk Bar
Take a journey back in time and celebrate the enchanting era of the 1920s, with a stop at the colourful Tuk Tuk bar.

Savour the fresh ingredient, homemade syrups while you watch in awe as the skilled bartenders pour up your favourite cocktails – keeping you entrained all night.
One of the most famous cocktail bars in Budapest, this metropolitan is the perfect place for your holiday celebrations. Situated in a grand former university theatre, this bar makes the geometric centre of Budapest. Boasting unique style and flavours, the cocktail menu offers everything from Chai KIOSK, with its Chai tea, infused Absolut vodka, fig jam, Strongbow, gold cider and chocolate bitter – to the equally lethal Margarita Reloaded, made from Corralejo blanco tequila, Grand Marnier, pineapple juice, cardamon syrup and smoked with absinthe.
Like the name suggest this bar is the perfect place to start your night out. Changing perceptions of cocktail bars since its opening in 2014, this bar is committed to shake, mix and twist each guest drink in a unique way. To get your very own bespoke cocktail, all you have to do is tell the bartender what kind of flavours, scents and historical eras you enjoy. Warming up has never been more fun!

Designed in vintage pharmacy interiors paired with dim lighting and periodic tables lining the walls, you can enjoy shots of in medicine bottles. When you’re there why not try their signature Millionaire cocktail? Which evokes an ethos of Prohibition-era with cola reduction, vanilla, egg yolk and shaken egg whites.
Listed in drink International magazine’s 50 best cocktail bars in the world, the neo-speakeasy Boutiq’Bar, is favoured by ladies looking for a sophisticated hen night.

Get lost in the plethora of ingredients, including Mexican chilli and African vanilla, to Caribbean rose peppercorn and Thai lemongrass to create mouth-watering concoctions.
