Nightlife in Zurich: Parties, Concerts, Bars, and Clubs

Zurich’s nightlife is renowned far and wide and offers the largest and most colorful choice of parties in the whole of Switzerland.

Night owls and party-goers will find a huge selection of bars, clubs, and event locations in Zurich – ranging from a beer or cocktail bar in the multicultural Langstrasse quarter to the famous electro music clubs in the up-and-coming Zürich-West.

Cult bars such as the Widder Bar and the Kronenhalle Bar have been delighting guests for years with their top-quality beverages. And while the open-air bars are a popular meeting place for young and old in summer, the first-class concert venues celebrate their high season in fall and winter. They inspire music lovers with excellent sound quality and a host of international stars.
