One week, 30 participating bars, 22 sponsor brands, more than 1,600 sold cocktails and 150 wristband buyers entitled to a discount, this was the first Budapest Cocktail Week in numbers.
We organized the event to bring cocktail culture lovers together in Budapest after so many international cocktail capitals. Thanks to the high quality of the cocktails dreamed up by the bars for this week and the great interest of guests, it became the most popular cocktail event of the year.
In 2023, we announced the Budapest Cocktail Week X ART collaboration for eleven bars.
Eleven bars/restaurants participate in the artistic collaboration, which are: Barside Budapest, Black Swan Lab, BESTIA, Bombay Budapest, FÉLIX Kitchen&Bar, Hudson Budapest, La Fabbrica, LEO Bistro&Rooftop Bar, MÚZSA, TOKIO, Tom George Osteria.
We will connect these participants with a contemporary Hungarian artist. For the event the bar and the artist will prepare their cocktail as part of a creative collaboration, for which they will be given complete freedom by the organizers.
This year's theme of the cocktail concept is the Chain Bridge, which will be handed over this year after many years of renovation, and the 150th anniversary of the unification of Pest, Buda and Óbuda.
In addition to the eleven bars participating in the Budapest Cocktail Week X ART collaboration, another eighteen bars are preparing a creative cocktail for the duration of the event.
