Rimini Bar (Am Schanzengraben)
By day a men-only flussbad (swimming pool in the river), by night, one of Zürich’s most popular summer bars. Most of the action happens by the entrance, where a small bar serves up beer, cocktails and a small selection of food. Long trestle tables are packed out with people enjoying a fine summer’s evening, but the action also extends along the narrow walkways extending down each side of the two bathing pools.
Exotic foliage and the leafy influence of the neighbouring Botanical gardens make it a calm oasis in the city centre. On Monday evenings, they hold a popular fashion market; showcasing young designers, each week there is a theme, from vintage sneakers to Glitter and Glamour evenings. In winter months they serve pizza and pasta at lunchtime and fondue in the evening.
