One of the country’s most highly ranked metropolitan bars, Kiosk, is the perfect place to host any hen party celebrations in Budapest.

Nestled within a grand former University theatre, the building marks the geometric centre of Budapest, on the eastern banks of the Danube. The truly unique cocktail menu – created by championship winning bartender, Máté Csatlós – consists of 25 idiosyncratic concoctions to tickle your tastebuds. Offering 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.

Officially one of Drink International magazine’s 50 best cocktail bars in the world, the neo-speakeasy Boutiq’Bar, is favoured by a lively, stylish crowd.

The meticulous bartenders care deeply about mixing the perfect cocktails, and use everything from Mexican chili and African vanilla, to Caribbean rose peppercorn and Thai lemongrass to create mouthwatering concoctions. Hanky Panky, Vesper Martini and Flying Dutchman are all Boutiq’Bar classics, but, if you want to truly embrace Hungarian culture on your hen weekend, grab yourselves a round of pálinka – a super strength fruit brandy. It’ll knock your L-plates off.

Celebrate the magical era of 1920s Shanghai, with a visit to Tuk Tuk Bar on your Budapest hen party.

In this period, for the first time ever, young women were able to walk unaccompanied, look glamorous and drink alcoholic creations to match – come and join their party… Using only the freshest ingredients and home-made syrups, highly skilled bartenders will lure you in with themed cocktails such as Geisha, Thai Chi-Lee and Hungaroni – and keep you entertained until the early hours.

Leaping forward a decadent decade, into the dizzy heights of 1930s Shanghai, Spiler has a sultry, dark and secretive vibe, just waiting to be uncovered on your hen weekend.

Celebrating lust, erotica and affluence, Spiler is all about living life to the max - fuelled by vibrant, potent alcoholic concoctions. Adorned with Basquiat and Warhol-inspired drawings, chic industrial interior and Chinese lanterns lining the ceiling – you’ll be transported hundreds of miles, as soon as you walk through the door. Spiler alert - the super sexy cocktail list features the famous Tokio Sex, Gesha’s Sake and My Thai Lady.

You wouldn’t run a marathon without a warm up – don’t start your night out without one.

Changing perceptions of cocktail bars since 2014, Warmup aims to shake, mix and twist each and every guest’s drink in a unique way. Designed by cocktail experts with an acutely tuned talent for creativity, all you have to do is tell the bartender what kind of flavours, scents and historical eras you enjoy – and they’ll create your perfect bespoke cocktail.

When it comes to the fine art of cocktail making, it’s all about precision in hipster drinking den, Bar Pharma.

Daring to be different, Bar Pharma screams everything synesthetic and science – with shots in medicine bottles, giving guests the element of surprise… Kitted out like a vintage pharmacy with dim lighting and periodic tables lining the walls – this intimate bar carefully measures quantities, continually develops its playful, state-of-the-art drinks list and gives its cocktails as much attention as its customers. We recommend trying their signature Millionaire cocktail, which evokes an ethos of Prohibition era with cola reduction, vanilla, egg yolk and shaken egg whites.

Adventurous cocktails with a side of magical Budapest skyline – just what any glamorous hen party needs.

From the moment you step foot out of the lift, you’ll be lured onto the rooftop terrace with low hipster lighting and edgy seating arrangements – and will have to pick your jaws up off the floor, after taking in the stunning panoramic spanning (unsurprisingly) 360 degrees around your heads. You’ll be able to spot Andrássy Avenue, the beautiful Buda Hills, Parliament House, Dohány Street Synagogue, the Sziget Eye and the Basilica - as you order your next round of reasonably priced cocktails. Budapest has never looked so good.

The Hungarian capital is steadily gaining popularity with hen parties from across the UK – and with our fantastic hen party activities and packages in Budapest, is it any surprise why?
