“Up for a super fun night? What could be more fun than drinking beer, listening to dance music while floating around in thermal hot springs in Budapest? Your kind of night? Then check out the open air thermal Spa Parties at Szechenyi Baths or Lukacs Baths; Budapest.”
Yes that is right! A nightclub in an outdoor thermal spa. Last year in November 2016, I went to the “SPArty” at Lukacs Thermal Spa in Budapest. I bought a VIP Duo ticket for 150 Euro. The ticket included VIP admission to the Spa Party for 2 people, a cabin/locker, 2 Spa Party towels and gift bags, 5 drink tickets and medical insurance. There are less expensive tickets starting at €50 per person.
The Party starts at 10:30pm and ends at 3:00am. The on-site bars serve beer, wine and cocktails. Drinks are even allowed in the pools, although it was very cold running to the bar to get or wait for the drinks. The drinks are all served in plastic cups so there is no risk of broken bottles in the spa.
Despite going in the winter it was quite warm in the spa as the the steam from the hot springs keeps you warm enough to stay in all night! Spa Party season is almost year round monthly from February to December rain or shine, regardless of the weather. Typically the NYE and summer month parties are at Szechenyi Baths and the winter parties are held at Lukacs Baths.
Lukacs Spa is one of the oldest spas in Hungary and utilizes the underground natural hot springs as its water source. It has 5 Thermal Pools ranging from 22°C – 40°C, but the outdoor pools are only open for the Spa Party.
Szechenyi Baths is a much larger complex that also has Spa Parties on most Saturdays in the summer. I highly recommend visiting Szechenyi Baths anytime. The amazing complex has 3 very large outdoor pools plus a wide range of indoor saunas, spas and services.
Whether you are up for a super fun night soaking up alcohol and mineral springs or looking to relax by day; I highly recommend visiting one or both of these amazing spas.
