The alternative café-bar has 15 bosses. Melina, Alejandro and Joel are three of them.
Zurich is brimming with traditional cafés, bars and restaurants. But there are none quite like the Zähringer. It has been managed as a collective since 1981. This means that everyone who works here is both a manager and an employee. Does it work? Three members of the Zähringer collective talk to us about working in a self-managed business, explain why they are left-wing but do not have any political aims themselves, and tell us where their guests draw the line when it comes to experimenting with the menu.
