Bar with a view

Lovely view with a choice of cocktails. Note that quantities are lesser than expected. For eg the brandy shot is just 20 ml so expect to shell more money!

Stopped in on a recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. I was traveling by myself and stopped in after my meetings had finished up. Was smaller than I was expecting but the views made you quickly look past that. Very crowded with an apparent loyal after work crowd, but all in all I am very happy I went... More

The view was great, staff is very busy with tourists and after work crowd. Cocktails were pricey Still worth the trip up to top Building is very cool .

Dear Deborah P, thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. Great to hear that you enjoyed the view over the city of Zurich. I disagree with your comment about pricy cocktails as they are within the area in the average range. Note as well that no admission fee is asked to reach the tower (in any other cities you would...

It is quite an experience to have a drink in a tower above the famous Bahnhofstraße. The elevator, which is placed in a nice restaurant takes a while to arrive but in the bar the wait is soon forgotten. Due to its limited space, seats are soon occupied but one can still get a drink at the bar or just... More

Once you find the entrance to the bar (through the restaurant) you will go up there with a small elevator. During the week it was not a problem to get a table, but I can imagine that it is very crowded during weekends. There are about 12 small tables available. The main reason to go there is the spectacular view.... More

We met local friends for drinks, and after the short wait for the elevator on the ground floor to get to the famous bar and its panorama view, we were lucky enough to find a table. Get here early enough to avoid the evening crowd who apparently comes to enjoy sunset. We avoid our Apperol Spritz cocktails and the view... More

We visited the bar on a wet Monday night.admittedly one does have to go through a restaurant to reach the bar .There is a small lift to the top floor which was not a problem but I could imagine that if it was a real busy week end it would be annoying to wait for the lift .Even though it... More

Whether in couple or on a date, bring her to Jules Verne and score high. This place offers a splendid view on downtown Zurich and a romantic atmosphere of its own.

Panaramic view of Zurich in tiny bar. Evenings can be busy, but afternoons are usually less crowded. Expect to pay about CHF 20 for a cocktail, so don't have a second one. Stunning view of Zurich including the Limmat river.
