Kind staff, great drag show at midnight, good music. Bit boring if you go alone, suggest going with friends who you can dance with and/or talk with.

For being the only LGBTQ+ club in Budapest it’s not too bad. I guess that is why everyone goes there and the crowd is so mixed up. They have three spaces but only two types of music styles (pop and Latin/R&B) The toilets get really...More

We arrived a little early, expecting that we would have to find a bar that would be discreet. Turns out, it is very much in your face, with a drag queen on the door. As we arrive early, it was a little quiet, so we...More

The good thing about this club is that there are three different spaces (dancefloors), with different styles of music.Also, people here are more than friendly! On the other side, the bouncers are the biggest problem because if they don't know you they won't let you...More

If you're not Hungarian or don't know the language, don't bother. The drag show is in Hungarian, with Hungarian comedy, music, and audience participation. Seriously the audience LOVES it. I didn't.

This is a good club with good music and also a nice atmosphere The bar tenders are nice and friendly. The only thing you need to keep in consideration if the prices are expensive but overall a nice club.

Hi Ash, they gave me and my friends VIP free entry because I know the manager and now the owner too, but I did ask about the entrance fee and it was HUF 1,500, so around EUR 5, so not too bad and it costs HUF 200 to leave... More
