At night, these hipsters put on shirts and head to Akvarium’s outdoor bar. Oftentimes an up-and-coming Hungarian band will play in the early evening, warming up the audience for nighttime festivities. The atmosphere changes from organic to funky as colored lights illuminate the pool and steps of the bar. Inside, you’ll find another bar and a dance floor where locals and travelers alike come to party rock, while outside films or big sporting events are sometimes projected in the open air cinema.
Akvarium’s sleek, fresh vibe is a nice contrast to the ruin pubs of Budapest but is just as hip. And if you’re burning up on the dance floor, you can go back to the club’s grassy roof and watch Budapest’s very own big wheel, Sziget Eye, turn over your head.
