Rooftop Bars & Panorama Spots in Budapest

The rooftop bars of the city have become increasingly popular in the last few years, nothing demonstrates it better than the fact that two brand-new ones have opened this August. Feel free to discover them (old ones and new ones alike), and you will experience an other dimension of Budapest.
The first rooftop bar of the Buda side (lovingly nicknamed 'Työtyő' by its fans) opened this August on top of Mammut Shopping Mall. We wouldn't say that the panorama is exceptional as you can only see the streets and houses below, but the place is very cosy indeed, offering high quality craft beers, good concerts and open-air movie screenings. Pop in any time after a tiring shopping tour at Mammut, you won't be disappointed by the ambiance.

Having just opened this August on top of Citadella fortress, right at the feet of the Liberty statue, 1xfent offers a breathtaking panorama to the visitors. Practically the most beautiful buildings of Budapest can be seen below, and the small open-air bar also hosts acoustic concerts every Thursday. Easily accessible by bus 27 from Móricz Zsigmond Square, and if you are fit enough you can also go on foot (that means climbing the Gellért-Hill).

Do you know that you can actually climb up onto the dome of the majestic St. Stephen's Basilica and admire the amazing panorama of Budapest from up above? This very special 'lookout-tower' (an important element of the landscape itself) is waiting for visitors every day between 10.00. and 18.30. from spring to October, and between 10.00. and 16.30. from October until May.

Gozsdu Sky Bar
Gozsdu Court is a must see-place in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest: clubs, restaurants and interesting programs (like the popular live-painting act 'Gozsdu Montmartre') are waiting for the visitors. Dont miss out the nice rooftop bar (accessible through the 6th floor of the parking lot): as it is mostly covered with glass you will find it open all year round.

Liebling Terrace
When you get tired from the noise & buzz in Fogasház-Instant ruin pub, you should consider going up to the charming Liebling Terrace (next building): drinking cold beer and having a sniff of fresh air can make the best of your day sometimes. The panorama is not really exceptional, you will mostly see Akácfa Street below, but the romantic ambiance of Liebling Terrace is inimitable. An ideal venue for first dates and anniversaries.

360 Bar
A real gem of Andrássy Avenue (on top of 'Párisi Nagyáruház'), 360 bar is probably the most fashionable rooftop terrace in town. As for the ambiance, it has a certain frenchy chic, which is very appealing to visitors. Moreover, you can always stumble upon interesting programs too, for example open-air yoga courses and electro-pop parties. Be sure not to miss their delicious lemonades and tasty sandwiches!
