I had moved to Thun just two days before I went to this bar, for my husband's birthday. It was more than I could have expected. The cocktails are unbelievably beautiful as wad the venue. The bartenders know every bar drink under the sun and their cocktails are amazing. I ordered the French martini, off-menu, and it was the best I have ever had.

The venue has subtle lighting, comfy chairs and a back room that apparently is home to live music.

I can't wait to go back!

From the moment you walk into this stylishly decorated basement bar near the old town hall in Thun you are struck by the subtle class of the place. The area around the bar itself is simple yet impressive with a very wide array of spirits and liqueurs racked along hte back wall. Upstairs from the bar is a more relaxed seating area and a room at the back with a pool table give great options depending on what sort of evening you want to have . . . and this is all before you meet the bar staff.

All three staff are fluent in English and German, but French, Spanish and Italian are also catered for. They are incredibly knowledgable about cocktails, knowing where and when they were created, and their recommendations are unbeatable - just tell them what you're in the mood for and you will be thrilled every time.

Finally, leaving the best to last, the drinks. From Martinis to Negronis, Daiquiris to Mojoitos, Atelier manages to hit perfection every time. But, in my opinion, where they really excel is in their own creations. The Borderline Old Fashioned and the Rum Diary are two of my favourites but there are many more that demand a try.

Honestly, if you're a fan of high quality cocktails and find yourself in Switzerland then it's worth coming to Thun just so you can visit Atelier.

We came from Zurich to visit a good old friend in Thun. After dinner we went to the Atelier and i was stoked. A bar, as stylish and world class, you would never expect it to be in Thun, but much more in London or New York! In a kind of "wine-cellar" atmosphere you get fantastic drinks, most of them self created by the chef Ivan Urech. It's not only the almost infinite varieties of spirit ingredients, but much more tons of self made flavors and essences to complete your personalized drink to perfection. But whats the best about the place: in the midst of all the "bartender-perfection" it's still a bar for everybody. No judgement how you are or how you are dressed, everybody ist welcome, which makes this place so sympathetic. No matter after a business meeting or after a long hike, you will find exceptional hospitality. This and the matter of fact to be in one of the most scenic ares of Switzerland make this place so special. I will be back asap!!!!

Amazing Bar with a fantastic ambiente!
You will definitely find the right cocktail for you and your daily mood ;) And if not, ask the bartender, they will figure it out and serve for sure the right one. Handmaded and for every personality.
The are having a unbelievable expertise, what you should use to learn some stuff about the things you are consuming by asking them.
If you are around Thun or staying in Bern, you should come to Thun enjoying the weather at the lake, enjoying somewhere a good meal and close the day/ evening with an amazing handmaded and personal cocktail.
Of course the drinks are more expensive than somewhere-else in Thun, but remember: they are unique, handmaded and some of the best in Switzerland, so you will definitely enjoying the drink longer.
