These scenic outdoor bars offer sweeping views of Budapest, many of them from up above. Expect a lively crowd of trendy people along with pricey wines and cocktails. Being indoor-outdoor spaces, most are open year-round, but they're most enjoyable during the al fresco season. For more locals, lower prices, and laid-back vibes, try these casual outdoor bars, too.
Kiosk Pest is a buzzing restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of Budapest, favored by trendy locals and plenty of tourists. Kiosk has at least two things going for it: a stunning view of the Danube and the Elisabeth Bridge from its outdoor patio, and a dramatically high-ceilinged, industrial-chic interior. (The building houses a Roman Catholic high school upstairs, in fact, there's a chapel right above Kiosk.)
