Corvin Club

Hate it or love it, Corvin is an iconic club in the Budapest alternative scene. It’s located at the side of a run-down socialist-era department store with a nondescript entrance. If the menacing bouncers let you through, walk up to the 5th floor to get to the giant dance floor. The inside is dark, a bit grungy and dirty, but this hasn’t stopped anyone from dancing their hearts out until the wee hours. If you’d like to take a break and breathe in some fresh air, go up another flight to the rooftop bar, but don’t expect leather couches and VIP tables. Check their facebook for the type of music that night (mostly techno and electronic), and look out for the movie screenings on the rooftop during the summertime. For more options, check Müszi next door, operating in similar vain.
