Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zurich

Xenix
An arthouse cinema and bar; in summer, Xenix's arty, filmy crowd spill out over the gravel square; in winter, they prop up the long wooden bar in the elegant pavilion
Wohnzimmerbar
Housed in the living room of a condemned house, Wohnzimmer bar exudes unstudied cool, with laid-back music, mis-matched furniture and a bijou drinks list
Valmann
A little slice of pure glamour, Valmann's superb cocktails, great sound system and friendly atmosphere pull in an attractive, professional crowd night after night
Terrasse Bar
On any given night, you'll find a Euro-chic crowd testing out the nineteen-page cocktail-list that ranges from martinis of every hue to margaritas, fizzes, sours and coladas
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
Plaza Cava Aperobar
Gently popular all week with a post-work crowd, Plaza Cava's scene takes off at the weekend when Plaza club draws Zürich’s most fashionable to Kreis 4
Nietturm Fumoir LaSalle
A stunning glass cube sailing high above the Schiffbau, Nietturm has amazing panoramic views of the city skyline and an extensive list of spirits and cocktails
La Stanza
Understatedly stylish and incredibly popular day and night, La Stanza serves up wines, beers and classic cocktails alongside Zürich's best espresso
Kaufleuten Hof/Pelikanbar
One of Zürich's most famous venues, Kaufleuten is a multi-tasking space, home to two bars, two clubs and a restaurant
Dini Mueter
Charmingly gemütlich (cosy), with simple wood tables, low leather chairs and floral wallpaper, Dini Mueter has brought a dose of cool to Langstrasse
Central Bar Caffé
A bar so understated you could walk down Ankerstrasse several times and still miss it, Central is beautifully low-key
Almodobar
A stylish café-restaurant-bar-lounge, Almodobar moves seamlessly from frothy cappuccinos via tasty lunches to towards liquid oblivion. It's the latter that we prefer.
