Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zurich

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
Primitivo
A riverside bar and restaurant, Primitivo sits opposite Oberer Letten badi, sharing its counter cultural vibe, ornamental graffiti and some interesting people-watching
Volkshaus
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
Talacker Bar
Kooky, mish-mashed decor places Talacker Bar more firmly in the alternative vibe of Kreis 4 rather than it's smart Kreis 1 surrounds would suggest
Tao’s Lounge & Bar
Packing in Zürich's pretty young things on a nightly basis, this chic little space is one of the most popular fumoir bars in town
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
Seebad Enge
With a fabulous setting on the lake, Seebad Enge has wonderful views of the city, lake and mountains, a fitting backdrop for some of the most chilled sundowners in town
La Stanza
Understatedly stylish and incredibly popular day and night, La Stanza serves up wines, beers and classic cocktails alongside Zürich's best espresso
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.
Barfussbar (in the Frauenbadi)
On warm summer evenings this charming 19th century wooden badi floating in the Limmat river transforms into a ‘barefoot’ bar
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
