Mad Garden Buda, the younger sibling of the popular downtown bistro Madhouse Budapest, is kicking off its third season in Óbuda's Miklós tér. Nestled amidst lush greenery and residential blocks, this urban oasis offers a perfect escape from the city bustle. During the day, you can unwind under the shade of magnificent trees with a refreshing craft beer in hand. As evening descends, the atmosphere transforms with captivating lighting, acoustic concerts, DJ sets, and other exciting events. This year, delectable offerings from a variety of food trucks will tantalize your taste buds, making Mad Garden Buda a one-stop shop for relaxation and entertainment.

Located near the historic, nearly 240-year-old Selyemgombolyító (Silk Factory), Mad Garden Buda offers a surprising haven tucked away among modern buildings. Year after year, the garden undergoes a fresh metamorphosis, while retaining the beloved elements that have kept guests returning since its debut in 2022. Stepping into Mad Garden Buda truly evokes a sense of being on vacation, yet it's conveniently located within the city, making it a hidden gem easily accessible to all.

Extensive drinks list and a rolling menu

This season boasts a revamped drinks menu, perfect for indulging from the afternoon onwards. Whether you prefer basking in the sun on a comfy lounger or soaking in the cosy evening ambience, a delightful beverage awaits.

Mad Scientist brews remain a crowd favourite, with three on tap for your enjoyment. But the options don't stop there – an extensive selection of canned beers ensures there's something for every palate. Looking to explore other options? Mad Garden Buda offers a curated selection of biodynamic wines, a wide range of spirits for classic cocktails, and refreshing long drinks. Plus, vermouth – this summer's hottest trend – is available for those seeking a taste of something new. No need to worry about rumbling stomachs, either! A rotating roster of food trucks will be on hand to satisfy your cravings with diverse culinary options. This year's lineup features a New York Hot Dog, a Black Heaven Barbecue, a Paneer, a Tésztafeszítő Kisiparos, and Kolbice. Make reservations here.
