Budapest bars are characterised by great traditions, but also by an ability to always reinvent themselves. this, around the turn of the millennium, has brought on another golden age of Budapest bars. many bars now “recycle” themes evoking the spirit of the beginning of the previous century, but others prefer a more cosmopolitan, glamorous style. it must be said that Budapest bars are in no way inferior to their foreign competitors, in terms of neither quality, nor atmosphere. the great Budapest public is known to differentiate between venues with different functions. of course there are specific “pre-party” bars, where the youth can be found before they head out for their night of clubbing, and then there are other venues with live music, open until dawn, that pull a somewhat older crowd. these bars provide something for the entire night, sometimes you can even have dinner. if you visit Budapest, it is advisable to visit several different bars, with the ones visited not only by tourists but by the locals as well coming especially recommended.
