Bar am Wasser

Its name is as unpretentious as its drinks, service, and metropolitan flair are swanky.

Following the example of large metropolises, the Bar am Wasser merges the boundaries between bar, restaurant, and café. During the day, guests relax over a coffee, while in the evening, they can indulge in an afterwork drink or two.

Indeed, spirits lovers are spoilt for choice: around 400 bottles adorn the two-story high spirits gallery, which thanks to excellent lighting is the focal point of the locale. Those who find the choice somewhat overwhelming can opt for one of the 25 signature cocktails, which are based on flavors rather than alcohol types. There is also a choice of appetizers for guests who get a bit hungry, ranging from olives, to cheese and cold meats, through to beef tartare.

Dark-colored parquet flooring, velour sofas in deep petrol, and comfortable armchairs all lend the bar an air of elegance. The views of Lake Zurich and the stylish Freibad Stadthausquai lido also add to the feel-good ambiance.
