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.
Good to know:
- Langstrasse is Zurich’s most popular entertainment district.
- Night owls can satisfy their hunger at takeout stands until late into the night.
- Smoking is prohibited in Zurich’s locales; however, many offer so-called “Fumoirs” (smoker’s rooms).
- With the Zürich Card, party-goers can benefit from, among other things, free admission to the Mascotte Club or the Casino, as well as a complimentary cocktail and other discounts at selected locations.
