One of the few clubs in Zürich-West not to worship at the
temple of techno, Exil has been bringing musical diversity to Kreis 5 since
2009. Formerly a foundry casting huge turbines, these days Exil throbs to the
rhythmical beat of hip-hop, R’n’B, rock and reggae – basically anything that
isn’t dance music.
Rather than club nights, Exil focuses on live music and they
have a regular program of gigs, drawing in artists from across the world. One
of the few clubs in Zürich to open most nights of the week, on Friday and
Saturday nights the live performance is followed by crowded parties as clubbers
descend from all over town.
