A cocktail above the city – Our favourite rooftop bars

Rooftop bars and restaurants have become extremely popular in the past years in Budapest: the emblematic buildings of the Hungarian capital offer unique background in every season. Wonderful views, elegant interiors, fancy bistro food, high quality wines and fashionable cocktails – a perfect combination to hang out after, before or during a tiring sightseeing tour.


Intermezzo Roof Terrace

– Zsuzsa’s favorite

For those, who are fond of Art Nouveau architecture, the Intermezzo Roof Terrace is the ultimate choice. Entering the terrace, the colourful roof tiles of the Hungarian Savings Bank are the first thing to be noticed. The rooftop bar of Hotel President is open all year: guests can sit in a heated „bubble” during the colder months, while in summer the whole terrace is open for those who love to dine and drink above the city.


The Duchess

– Mónika’s favorite

Right above the Elisabeth Bridge, across from Gellért Hill, the rooftop bar of the 5-star Matild Palace Hotel awaits its guest with modern elegancy, fancy bistro food and the best of its cocktail bar. It’s one of the newest places, so you can be among the first ones to discover. P.S. Don’t forget to take a photo of the wonderful view of Budapest!


Leo Rooftop Bar

– Katinka’s favorite

Searching for the best view of Budapest skyline? Leo Rooftop Bar should be on your list! The top-notch bar on the 8th level of Hotel Clark offers an impeccable vista over the Pest side of the city, the Danube with its elegant bridges – including the iconic Chain Bridge – and the baroque castle. Beyond the view, delicious bar bites and small plate delicacies, classic and newly invented cocktails and an elegant interior makes the place an excellent choice to start or finish your evening!


St Andrea Wine & Skybar

– Imola’s favorite

Live music with the ferris wheel and the skyline of Gellért Hill in the background – St Andrea Wine & Skybar offers two open terraces and a spacious indoor restaurant to enjoy the internationally awarded St Andrea wines, fascinating cocktails and gourmet bar food. Thanks to its prime location, it is also the number one place to hang out during the Christmas Fair.


High Note SkyBar

– Eszter’s favorite

The mighty cupola of the St Stephen’s Cathedral creates an unbeatable backdrop for your next selfie in High Note. The 5-star, music-themed Aria Hotel Budapest offers luxury in its cocktail bar: in the very heart, yet above the city. For a complete dinner or for a glass of champagne, the High Note SkyBar is always a good choice.

  • The newest gem of the Castle District, the White Raven
  • The well-known Liz & Chain in Marriott Hotel Budapest
