Great cocktails and fair prices. It’s a bar close to the lake and almost every time you will find a seat. Go to drink: the Pornstar-Martini. But they also make a kick-ass Marghertia and the Basil Smash is also well shaken.
A small bar only 3 minutes from the Zurich main station. Perfect for a dinner and apéro. Franzos also turned into one of my favorite places because it is never too crowded, and you can have good conversations. My recommendation: a Parigot and a tarte tatin.
A classic bar in the middle of the Zurich old town called Niederdorf. Whether beer, wine, whiskey or gin, they can mix you every drink you like. Unfortunately, it is mostly pretty crowded on weekends – so why not take a drink on a Tuesday night.
This bar close by the Limmat offers a huge range of drinks, cocktails and any alcohol/spirit you can think of. The bar has quite bad internet connection, so you have some time for talking. My recommendation: The Strawberry Club.
OOO is one of Zurich rooftop terraces. Their menu offers you taps-style food and good drinks, so perfect for an after work cocktail above the roofs of Zürich. Also in summer you can sit outside and enjoy the view over the city.
Feels like a throwback to the 80’s, where the restaurant firstly was opened. They serve a good Basil Smash and delicious pommes allumettes. The people are a little posh, but that comes with the location, next to Paradeplatz.
I actually do not like hotels bars, but the Onyx Bar is quite a pretty one. Also perfect for an after-work drink because it’s a calm but classy atmosphere. Besides an expensive cosmopolitan, you get an excellent club sandwich here.
