PONTOON (Outdoor Only)

PONTOON is an outdoor-only bar situated on one of the most precious stretches of the Danube's bank, with front-row views of the Chain Bridge, the Castle Hill, and the Matthias Church. Besides the scenic views, PONTOON is best known for hosting high-quality live music acts, featuring local bands across a variety of genre. These daily concerts draw a local crowd, and also some tourists who have a nose for good things.

Drinks are reasonably priced, especially for being in the heart of downtown. You can also order a Naples-style pizza, prepared on-site in a wood-burning oven, if you need something to absorb the alcohol. Note that PONTOON stays open only during the outdoor season, usually from April to September.

We visit all places incognito, pay for our own meals and drinks, and write independent reviews.
