The Forest by High Note SkyBar

Black chokeberry, sea buckthorn, juniper, violet liqueur, venison, moss, barberrry, and tobacco – edible forest plants, mushrooms, fruits and forest wildlife. These have provided the inspiration for the team at High Note SkyBar, who have created a true curiosity for the autumn-winter season – conjuring up a forest above the city centre.


For those looking for a place to unwind, make your way to the enchanted forest above the city at High Note SkyBar after work or heading on to the party quarter, the interior inspired by the frozen wilds can be enjoyed until March on the roof of the Aria Hotel Budapest, a stone’s throw from the Basilica.

The concept comes to life through 13 specialty cocktails and small plates including desserts that were inspired by the soul of the drinks.

Chef Gergely Kövér

Chef Gergely Kövér, pastry chef Zsuzsa Szabó, and bar manager Borbála Anger continue to work in close cooperation to compose flavours which will delight their guests; at the same time, they aim to please those looking for more classic flavours.

The cocktails are the central point; the foods reflect and complement the drinks.

The presentation is also out of the ordinary: the cocktails are served in lanterns, ewers, and barrels; the salmon arrives marinated in pine branches; accompanying the breast of duck are cranberries prepared by the chef.


Sure to spice up your next outing and spare plenty of conversation, the forest at High Note SkyBar welcomes you until March with its panoramic terrace will be transformed into a forest of evergreen.
