Things to do in Budapest at the evening

Hey Everyone!

I would need some tip what to do in Budapest after a daylong sightseeing. I'd need some nice relaxing program, cuz I think we won't be able to move much, after we planned to do during the day haha.
Any ideas? Good pubs, shows, anything?

I took an evening cruise on the Danube and it was magical. They have dinner cruises but it's harder to enjoy the scenery when you are eating. Take a cruise where it's cocktails only.

dinner with music. wonderful in Budapest. Ask your hotel for suggestions. We loved Belcanto's live band near the opera house. Also had some other nice dinners with background live music, but will have to go look up names.

Spoon café ( compulsory stop at least ONCE IMHO) always has the great views for lingering over dinner or drinks, taking in the Chain Bridge and its lights..

Budapest has places called "ruin pubs" all over the city. Really great atmosphere; but mostly early 20's-30's crowd if that's what you're looking for.

Check out http://ruinpubs.com/ to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

Go to Liszt Ter - plenty of trendy restaurants and bars there.

Irish pubs (with Irish ex-pats) abound.

You didn't say when you will be there, but check this link for events happening, perhaps one or two may be happening while you're there (Palinka Fest, Jazz Fest, Craft-Beer Fest, etc): http://www.budapest-tourist-guide.co...-budapest.html

I have to echo @jomagpie suggestion of "ruin pubs," which I didnt realize they were called but it is very fitting! I visited a bar when I was backpacking in Budapest in 2008, which I now know was Szimpla Kert, the bar mentioned in the blog, and it was one of the most memorable bar experiences I have had anywhere. My friends and I still talk about "that really cool bar in Budapest in the abandoned courtyard."
