Pécsi Est Café: Good party in Pécs
If you're in Pecs on friday or saturday night, this is a really nice place to go, drink and dance. Nice design of the club, rocks at the walls, one part it's like stairs for sitting and drink, stage for live music and DJ's, and 2 bars. Good value for some hungarian beers (450,500 forints). Pop, rap, Rock, punk, some hungarian music, all mixed genres is there, whatever you want to listen and dance to ! Almost every weekend there is live music concerts but later is on speakers or Dj. Entry into a night club is around 500 to 1500 ft, depends on the performers that night and there are keepers who will take your bags, jackets or whatever you want free (includes in price of entry to club). Relaxed people, usually alternative teenagers who wants just to party. One of the best night clubs I have ever been, especially in Pecs!
Club is opened untill 5 am.
Dress Code: However you want, normal or crazy alternative style.

Inferno club: rock and roll inferno
How we ended up there would take too many unnecessary words and though I am not big fan of RNR myself, I really enjoyed nice atmosphere in that basement and we returned there next evening. Black painted walls, thick smoke, loud music, bunch of people, cheap beer (250 forint for local one!), sometimes live concerts, easy to catch up with locals - if that's what you like, go there!
We came too late for the concert on our first night, but we didn't missed the second. Guys were playing covers of famous hard rock, and the singer had a voice of Axel Rose, so consequently they had most of their songs in repertoire. Public were dancing and singing along, they seemed to be popular there. Don't know who they were, they were good imitator.
They have also hand football in a place, and service is kind.

Sufni kavehaz art pub: great place to 'crash' for few hours
You'll notice this place for what it 'exhibits' by the windows at Kiraly street - an ecclectic collection of used tapes, music players, collages - in chaotic 'order'. It promises 'art' experience, whatever that may be - but the name is just name. Nevertheless, it is creative, playful, little chaotic, cozy and friendly shelter when you step in. Inside there's whole lot of things hanging from the balcony and ceiling, including bike and broken umbrellas and the walls are 'decorated' with sketches, notes and signatures of visitors (makes for an amusing reading, hehe... well, at least in some cases).
We spent few hrs here indulging with nice sweet cooked wine - fine, relaxed music played and the atmosphere was good.
Lot of young people come to hang out here but everyone is welcome and treated well; it opens after 16.00. And its smoking-allowed place - hence fuzzy views. But I read in a paper that after 1st January 2012 inside smoking will be banned, and then the air will be different, too.

If you ask anyone in the town, he will most likely tell about Rák. (means Crab, I've seen it written as Hard Rák Cafe) The argument should rise on which night is it the best, as there is a different kind of music on every night.
Well, I'm not really that dancing kind of person, so I've checked different occassions, but I didn't liked it. :) But that's my fault, i have to admit.
Hard Rák Café: Hard Rák Café
- very laid back atmosphere, pretty cheap drinks, but make sure you get brand gin, or it won't taste like you expected... The musical style is mixed, you'll probably hear both Beastie Boys and Eminem mixed with Hungarian hits.
Don't go there too early - nobody will be there before midnight! Open til 5 in the morning usually.
Dress Code: Relaxed, hip, young style. Come as you are, don't be too dressed up.

If you are student, or a student-mind adult you cannot miss to go in the summer semester to the well-known 'Golden Triangle' or 'Little Bermudas'. That trinity is composed of three famous bars: 1st - Papucs (a 170 years old authentical Hungarian kocsma), 2nd - the Dante Café, 3rd - the Kiosk - an outdoor kocsma under two hundred years old trees. This complex is in the heart of historical downtown, 50 meters from the neogothic cathedral and the bishop's palace.
