Opening event: 1st December, 2012, 9pm-3am
Following the splashin' late night tune spa series Szecska of the summer season, as if by the stroke of a fairy's wand, the series is transferred to the newly refurbished Lukács Bath under the name Magic Bath to bring hot summer vibes on the Buda-side of the Danube for the cold winter nights.
Taking place on Saturdays, starting from 1st December, the buoyant late night music event will offer a thermal water-based and an overland dancefloor for the seekers of out-of-the-ordinary recreation. Special DJ-sets, bars full of liquid and edible delicacies, and, naturally, pools abundant in healthy minerals make the chilly Saturday nights in Budapest the most pleasant you can imagine.
At the opening event, the Swiss DJ with Arabic ancestry, DJ MEH-D's special set blending different musical styles from house through hip hop to the latest electronic genres will be witnessed, bearing oriental references the way the baths of Budapest are reflecting the traces of Eastern traditions. In a similar fashion, on the local side, sound-waves by Cinetrip resident Vittorio Waxman will assist in the recreation process.
Refurbished mostly from EU support and in-house finances, Lukács Bath is experiencing a busy start for December, since new exclusive sections are opening during the daytime, on the day of the Magic Bath launch, whereas after 9pm, the official closing time, the act of relaxation takes on a new meaning, and a part of it is transformed into a metropolitan hot-water nightclub. The only music venue in town with underwater massage with water beams, a big jacuzzi in the middle, and bubbling jacuzzi beds.
Swimsuit recommended, flip-flops almost a must, and bring along warmer clothes, too! And don't forget your towel!
