Budapest IX. district Ferenc krt. 17.

Positive features

Attractive front entry.

Negative features

Attention! There is over billing in this club. It is NOT recommended. After free entry the guests face with a welcome drink costs 60-80 euro and when the girls have a seat at the table they put drinks on your table without being asked to and, of course, the guests should pay for them. Two wine lists are used in most cases.

So, I wish I could say something positive about this place, but the truth is, that Play Night Club is NOT recommended. They work with crazy prices, and force you to pay the unrealistic bill. Me and my friends just wanted to have a pleasant evening with some nice girls, but we've left after 25 minutes, 'cause the strippers were old and amateur. We asked for the check, and it was more than 500€-s (few beers and shots). We didn't wanted to pay, but we were suddenly surrounded with security guys... I don't continue, you can imagine, how scared we were. Really shameful.

We had an awfully nasty surprise last weekend. We made the mistake of catching a taxi outside a nightclub called Ötkert in the centre of Budapest, and we asked to go to the P1. We don’t really know the city all that well, so we didn’t catch on when the driver took us to some other place and said it was the P1, out you go. Well, it turned out later this was the kind of nightclub where they really take you to the cleaners, and that’s exactly what happened to us. We drank a few beers and had to pay a small fortune in the end. We had a funny feeling from the word go that maybe it was the wrong place, since a Spanish mate of ours recommended the P1 and said they had a class act – trained, friendly staff and tons of pretty girls. Well that’s not the place we were in. The staff was dead nasty and the place just wasn’t to our liking, including the girls. Only when we came out did we really take a closer look where we had actually been taken, so that’s when we finally noticed that this was the New Play Club. I decided to write this story here to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen with other people. It’s best not to catch a taxi, because their all paid off. The next day we found the P1 on the map and went there. After getting burned the way we had we were a bit uptight, and to be honest, I thought the night we be a bust. Well, that’s not what happened – it was fantastic. The P1 really is just like our friend said...enchanting! The bill was not a penny more than we had drunk, everybody was amicable, the mood was lively, and the girls were entrancing. I hope a lot of people read this and learn from it, and they will be a lot more cautious than we were!!

My adventure in Budapest began outside a downtown restaurant called Kyoto, where we ended up getting into a cab called MaxTaxi with a friend of mine. We asked the driver to take us to a recommendable and honest club with girls galore. We later found out that we asked this from one of the major figures of the taxi mafia, who of course took us to one of the roughest night clubs, to X-play. This place is a right trap. I will use every forum and internet space to warn everybody and tell them not to go here. The staff is awfully pushy and you’re guaranteed to get overbilled. We were there for 1 hour, it was the two of us, we hardly drank anything and we payed 400 Euros. We were charged drinks we never even saw. I hope they’ll take away its licence soon enough, together with the licences of all similar places in Hungary, because a European country cannot afford to have something like this. I’m sure we were neither the first nor the last who got robbed here. That’s why it is beyond me how the police and the authorities can allow all of this. After this happened I talked to some Hungarian friends, who told me that it is mainly this taxi that works from downtown and all they do is take tourists to places where they get ripped off. The money they get is then split between everyone, so it’s great business for all except for the tourist who might even end up with 1000 Euros less. It’s incredible that the Hungarian authorities allow this and they turn a blind eye to what’s going on. That’s not the way to become a part of Europe… I don’t understand what’s in it for them.

One of my mates has just returned from Budapest and the poor fellow ended up at a place called Jet Club. He said he’d got into a cab on the street wanting to go to a disco, and the driver took him to this Jet Club and told him it was a disco full of really hot girls. My friend ended up paying 430 Euros for a couple of beers and he practically had to argue his way out because they wanted him to pay even more. So be sure to avoid this place, because it’s a club well known by the police to be living off frauds against tourists, due to which the municipality had it closed down a while back, but they somehow managed to reopen.

As i know due the serially problems the club was closed by the police. There are only 3 Clubs what i can recommend. They are the Royal Palace (this is my favorit) the Hallo bar and the Forplay. -hungarian boy

WARNING! DO NOT go to this place - they have a hidden minimum charge of 18000HUF (73 euros). It's written on the menu in tiny characters and it's very hard to read. Also by the time you read it, you have to pay anyway. It says free entrance on the door. Other lie: they claim the girls can come home with you but that's not true either. We tried, they say they'd come, then some barman arrives and he says you have buy them a drink first, which has to be consumed on the premises. At that point we decided to move on, and that's when we discovered that we had to pay 18000HUF first. The cab drivers are part of this criminal organization to steal money from turists. Our driver suggested the venue, and when we arrived there he got off the taxi and went to speak to the (5) bouncers, probably claiming his share of the loot. No wonder the place was totally empty at 01:00 on a saturday night. Some of the girls were decent looking but one of them started to become abusive and offensive when we refused to buy her a drink. This place was the only bad thing that happened to us in an otherwise perfect weekend in Budapest.

CLUB: Carpe Diem Night Club (ex Flash Dance)

written by Carlos

"Be careful, because overcharging appears in this club, especially if you are not hungarian. We went with a bigger company, and the bill was unrealistic. We just had few drinks and watched the show. No way it costs more then 150 Euros...


CLUB: Mambo Night Club

written by Jürgen78

"Really disappointed. Wanted to have fun, but no chance under these circumstances. The Club is extremely overpriced, the setting is low-budget and the girls are bored as hell. No to mention the rude waitresses and security guys. Been there 30 minutes...


CLUB: 4play

written by Ron

"Not recommended for everyone, its a really cheap entertainment. You definitely gonna find a better nightclub in Budapest...
