I have been at Schiffbau to attend concerts often and I have really enjoyed it every time! The artists and groups invited are always worth listening to, the events are well-organized and the audience warm! Totally worth the experience at least once for everyone living in Zurich!

I just visited the bar when I was here and really enjoyed the setting. I ordered a martini which was very nice but seemed to take a very long time to make. The staff seemed a little lacklustre.

Unique atmosphere of industrial building, great place for performances and music (The Moods) wit interesting repertoire. And last but not least a bar with places outside, ideal for an Apero or to enjoy a warm summer evening..

Located in Zuri-West in an old ship work building, this converted building now hosts a jazz club, theatre and restaurant. It is great use of an old industrial complex. Restrooms and elevators are available. The closest stop is with the Tram line #4.

here you come for a moody evening in the jazz club moods or a dance night in it. some of the best theatre plays in town are shown here. the restaurant in house is of highest standards - pricy but worth it
