Instant Fogas is certainly the best party hub in not just the party district, but in whole Budapest. After visiting the must-see Budapest Parliament and the Széchenyi baths, you must come and visit Instant-Fogas!
Instant and Fogasház, the two best clubs in Budapest merged in 2017. The complex is now 1200 square meter, so bigger than two soccer fields. Similarly to ruin pubs, Instant-Fogas is located in a huge building, with the difference that here the cellar was also used to the maximum.
1200 m2, 7 different music floors, 18 bars, and more than 1000 performer a year
True to its name, Instant Fogas is located in a ruinous house that looks like a plain abandoned house from the outside:
However, at night it becomes clearer that it’s not just an abandoned building, because there is a long line of people waiting to get in. Upon entering you can already sense the feeling of a ruin bar and see the large garden and terrace that can be especially pleasant in the summer heat. Of course, the music can be heard even from here and you can start predrinking by the bar. And this is just the beginning!
Thanks to the 18 bars and the diverse styled dance floors, it’s easy to dance until dawn accompanied by some cocktails. Don’t forget to check happy hours!
Though the garden could be an average ruin bar in itself, it’s just the beginning! It’s good to check the whole place soberly because the basement is like a labyrinth.
Private Rooms in Instant Fogas
Few people know, but there are also private, VIP rooms upstairs with exclusive interior design and private bathrooms. So Instant-Fogas is an ideal choice for having a party, or throwing a bachelor or bachelorette party as well.
Design at Instant Fogas
The furniture and design are very special, they look like if everything was recycled or second-hand, but the overall picture is amazing. You can find everything here from dentist’s chair to penguin to aircraft design.
Unfortunately, the toilets are not of the best standard. If we have a VIP room, however, this problem is already ticked.
The indispensable accessories of ruin bars, such as billiards, table football, pinball, or hockey can be also found here, so the place is also perfect for lovers of pub sports. And what makes this place really special?
7 different dance floors in Instant Fogas
They have quite strange names, but it doesn’t matter… ☺
The rearmost room in the basement. Disco ball, pixel cloud and huge space. This room is ideal for dancing, flirting and getting to know each other.
DJs, remixes, r’n’b! If you can handle non-stop dancing to the rhythms of a DJ, this is definitely your place to be.
This place’s specialty is live music, relaxing, eating, drinking and light predrinking. Thanks to the huge terrace this place is even more special. If you want something delicious you can also taste short drinks, quality wines, great main courses and mouth-watering desserts here.
Fantastic, perhaps the best electronic music club in Budapest.
Its main characteristics are international music, darker spaces and limitless volume. This unique club can accommodate 250 people at one time and it became the country’s underground citadel.
There are only few places where rock music is represented alone. Plus, nights are fueled with live concerts. Live music is followed every day by an inevitable rock disco, where next to the Hungarian anthems and ballads, international rock is played too.
Latin and Cuban rhythms, crazy beats and, of course, the essential bass, characterized by drum & bass, garage, break, beat, halftime and trap.
This room looks like a circus tent, where fans of electronic music can dance until morning.
Though Instant-Fogas is mostly about drinking, don’t forget to eat something to gain enough energy for all night long dancing.
