You’ll spend most of your stag do in the districts of Pest, on the Eastern side of the Danube, where ruin bars dominate the nightlife scene. Lining the streets of Budapest’s Jewish Quarter, ruin bars are a unique wave of venues occupying run-down buildings and courtyards - filled with quirky bric-a-brac, graffiti and even some sawn-off Trabant cars as seats. They’re great for relaxing, outdoor drinking and sampling the popular local drink, froccs, a potent fizzy wine.
District 6 houses the renowned 4Play Lounge, the finest strip club in the whole city with even finer girls to match. You’ve also got the likes of District 5, where Hello Baby runs the show - a more sophisticated stag do haven hidden away in the courtyard of a non-descript building. Lavishly sprawled across three floors of a palatial Georgian mansion, there’s artwork projected on the walls, dancers in the window frames and giant, translucent bubbles suspended in mid-air above the central quadrangle.
After you’re all partied out on dry land, you can even take your stag do to the picturesque River Danube. Party cruises can take place through the day or at night and have cash bars on board. You can even have your very own stripper on board with you, to make the cruise extra memorable for the stag.
