With more than 300 types of gin, rare French wines and service worthy of a 5-star hotel, these four Zurich bars know how to keep all their guests happy – including the most discerning of cocktail-lovers.
4 Tiere Bar
It has been a while since the days when 4 Tiere Bar was a well-kept secret. Its positive reviews and awards speak volumes about the establishment. Andreas Kloke and Xu Kunming have a genuine passion for being hosts – they have turned their bar into a hotspot for gin connoisseurs and discerning drinkers who want to enjoy a cocktail in an easygoing atmosphere.

Le Raymond Bar
Long-time restaurateur Alvaro Marangoni has brought a touch of Gallic flair to the bar on the Schanzengraben by offering a fine selection of French wines. But Le Raymond Bar is also a great place to drop in for a coffee.
Bleicherweg 8, 8001 Zurich
Acid is a place where the whole neighbourhood stops by. In the afternoons, they call in for homemade lemonade, and cakes baked by a pilot friend of Yann and Sheila. In the evenings the bar offers an exclusive drinks menu.

Bar am Wasser
Since he trained to be a chef, Dirk Hany has worked in a number of luxury establishments – most recently in the Widder Hotel. Now he is running his own cocktail bar on Bürkliplatz. It is especially popular with expats.
