Those who want to find out about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Budapest can certainly do so right here. Our LGBT nightlife guide will cover a wide variety of topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town and more!
We will also get into the best sites for LGBT online dating in Hungary. In particular we want to tell you about a few that are more geared towards hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship at the moment. Plus we will mention all of the best LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in this city.
We all have our own way of doing things so we will list everything we know about so that you can choose your own adventure. We have covered a ton of cities in Europe which you can look through here.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Budapest
Let’s start this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Budapest :
- Toldi Mozi at ajcsy-Zsilinszky 36-38
- Phoenix Bar at Nagymező u. 25

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Budapest for men to meet men we just posted a big list that can help you out. We used to live in a world where things were far less inclusive, but these days most Hungary LGBT friendly venues are not really strictly gay bars.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Budapest
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Budapest for women to meet women. The mixed list should have plenty of options and if not you might need to go party at the major nightclubs around town whether they are known as LGBT hot spots or not.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
There are not trans bars in Budapest per se but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Phoenix Bar
- Transzvariete Show Ejfelkor at Alterego
- Drag Race Viewing Parties at Alterego
Please use the comments to let us know if anything you notice on this page is no longer relevant or if any new LGBT hot spots have opened up since our last visit here. We also want to say that we know how things are here pretty good but we are not local experts by any means.
If you think we should be listing any venues as strictly lesbian or gay bars definitely let us know. We have tried our best, but we can’t keep up with the whole world without a little help.
There really is not one main gay area or gayborhood here. Some may be interested in reading more of our LGBT guides for:
Weekly, Monthly, & Pride Events
Here are some of the best LGBT events that occur on a regular basis:
- Karaoke Every Thursday & Sunday Nights at Habrolo
- Oops at Anker’t on Friday Nights
- Crush by No.1 at Kazinczy 21
Budapest Gay Pride in July is obviously something you won’t want to miss as well.
Best LGBT Dating Sites
Trying to find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups was not very easy before the internet, especially for those who did not like to party. Gay or lesbian bars were pretty much your only choice, but thankfully that is no longer the case.
We have no idea what your current status is but we are pretty sure that there are some people reading this who may not want to have their photos taken at a gay bar and posted on social media. Adult Friend Finder has been the biggest hook up site on the planet for almost as long as the internet has been mainstream.
They actually have quite a few sites in their network which some may not know. Men Nation is their top site for finding gay men near you to hook up with and you might be pleasantly surprised at how many users it has in major cities like this one.
It combines all of the users on their numerous sites across their network which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and numerous types of kinks and fetishes. So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals.
We also want to mention the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Budapest is more popular than ever before and will only continue to grow as more ts in Hungary are finally feeling like they can be the person they want to be.
At this point we have covered the Budapest LGBT nightlife in full. You know all about the best mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all kinds of LGBT dating sites in Hungary. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
