Budapest Weekend Guide 14-16 July

Shows, concerts and cultural attractions – Budapest is always buzzing. Each week, we gather all of the important happenings taking place in our favourite city so you can plan ahead.

Friday, 14 July

TUBI or not to be?

Downtown Circo Pizza is always a good idea if you are craving oven-baked Neapolitan pizza. And on July 14th (6 pm), they give us another reason to visit them, as they dedicate an evening to Tel Aviv's signature spirit, Tubi. They will prepare 6 types of cocktails for the occasion: classic Tubi Tonic, Moran Moran, Tubi Mate, Auróra, Tubilibre, and Tubi Cranberry Mule, meaning you can wash down your Margherita pizza in style.

Evening flea market

On the third weekend of July, you can set off on an adventure at an evening market (5 - 10 pm) organised by Industrial Lamp Budapest. The location might not be central (to reach 1116 Budafoki út 70, hop on bus 133E at Astoria station), but this is where the map marked the hidden gold. And by gold, we mean gorgeous antique homeware, books, vintage furniture, clothes, accessories, paintings, frames, and other goodies awaiting their second life. The best bit is that while shopping and saving an old piece, you also do something nice for Mother Earth. So browse away!

Necc Party – Music of the '90s and 2000s

Necc Party is rummaging in the music trash of the ’90s and the ‘00s, pulling out the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls, Blink 182 and Emergency House, Britney and Bon Jovi. Budapest’s largest open-air party will make you dance the night away from 10 pm at open-air Budapest Park.
