In the bars of Hungary’s capital you can wine and dine in style, hang with the cool kids or step back in time. Take a boozy tour through beautiful Budapest…
High Note SkyBar, Aria Hotel
In the last few years, Budapest has been getting extremely chic – so chic, in fact, it’s like Communism never happened, which is exactly how the Hungarians like it. Oh, those Russians. This gorgeous boutique hotel, “inspired by music” is the last word in 21st- century super-luxe, attracting the bold and the beautiful, with a spectacular roof-terrace High Note SkyBarcreated for drinking the kind of cocktails drunk by men in sharp suits and women in red lipstick. Slap bang next to the magnificent St Stephen’s Basilica, the hotel, located on the Pest side of the Danube River, has magnificent views across the city’s rooftops to Old Buda illuminated on the hill. On a warm night full of possibilities, with the city lit up before you, this is the perfect spot for a glass of Champagne.
