St. Andrea Wine and Skybar

As the name suggests plenty of wine can be found here, but the cocktails don’t lag too far behind. Pristine atmosphere; created with good music and even better views.


With an extremely wide selection of local wines, Kadarka is truly one of our favourite wine bars in Budapest. Be sure to try out wines made from Hungarian grape varieties like Furmint, Kékfrankos or Kadarka. You can buy them for takeway by the bottle as well, for quite a reasonable price!

Wine not?

A cute little wine bar in the heart of the 5th district, Wine not? is the best place to sample some Tokaji wine, the pride and joy of Hungarian wine producing. The Tokaji wine region is the world’s first closed wine region, being part of the Unesco World Heritage list since 2002. Do we need to say more?

Veritas Borkereskedés

In vino veritas, as they say, and we couldn’t agree more! If you wanna buy or bring home wine by the bottle, head to Veritas. With a great selection of Hungarian and international wines, Veritas is truly the place to be for wine-enthusiasts!
