Hg2 : The Hedonist

Talacker Bar

Kooky furnishings picked up
from Zürich’s Brockenhaus (2nd
hand stores) and a splendid mural of some rather lugubrious hounds place
Talacker Bar more firmly in the alternative vibe of Kreis 4 rather than it’s
smart Kreis 1 surrounds would suggest. So it’s no surprise to learn that the partners
behind it also run Kreis 4 favourites Volkshaus and Longstreet Bar.

operations are all strictly legit, but a shared history organising illegal
parties in the freewheeling mid-90s infuses Talacker Bar with an independent,
irreverent spirit. Not quite the ‘szene’ bar it was in 2008 when it opened, a
relaxed vibe draws in mix of bankers, fashionistas and hipsters. Popular by day
for noodles and Thai curries, come the evening the music is cranked up – old
hits, R’n’B, relaxed electro music, nothing too hard to burst the mellow bubble
– and people settle into the eccentrically upholstered seats for a long evening
of drinks.
