Hg2 : The Hedonist

Old Fashion Bar

Zürich’s oldest bar dates back to 1886 and its provenance is evident in the stylish wood panelled walls and ornamental ceiling. A 2008 facelift gave it a modern gloss albeit one with a traditional feel; dark red walls and chairs upholstered in various softly-coloured plaids plus a hint of battered leather give it a clubby but not stuffy atmosphere; think hunting lodge chic and you get the picture.

Drawing in a crowd as smart as the décor, Old Fashion is an immensely popular post-work meeting place for Zürich’s elite of all ages, from international financiers to elegantly dressed ladies-who-lunch and glamorous girls catching up over a glass of champagne or two.

Reserving a table is a good, but not essential, idea and should you get too caught up in the mellow mood to move, they serve a mean club sandwich and excellent steak tartare.
