Warmup Cocktail Bar

Warmup is a small craft cocktail bar in Budapest’s party district that operates without a fixed menu; instead, customers have to provide a few hints to the bartenders and trust them to take care of the rest. Do you enjoy rum with a spicy kick? A Dark 'n' Stormy it is. Are you a Negroni fan but don't mind a little creativity? They'll swap the gin for silky Unicum Riserva, a local liqueur. You can also just utter a few flavors like "sweet," "sour," or "dry," and unlikely to be disappointed by the result.

Warmup is one of the more laid-back cocktail bars in Budapest. Speakeasy vibes don't reign supreme and the bartenders eschew the standard cocktail bartender uniform no bow ties, vests, and suspenders here.
