Great drinks, amazing atmosphere and a great mix of people ! Loved it and wish I had a bar like that close to my home. Great for any occasion and I would perfectly go there also on my own. Mr. Hany knows what he does and filled this bar with a welcoming and great vibe topped with an impressive knowledge.... More

I got this tip from friends who live in Zurich! What an amazing bar this is. I've been to a lot of bars all over the world but this one tops it all!!! Guessing over 1000 bottles of spirit on the back bar and amazing bartenders doing their work, especially the two managers Dirk & Wolfgang!!! Ask for drinks not... More

Whenever visiting Zurich - Do not miss the Widder Bar. Especially in Winter when it is cold outside this bar (traditional wood style) is a must for an apero before dinner. Located in the heart of the city the Widder Bar is a very cosy and romantic place to be. Excellent atmosphere! This is what you expect from an outstanding... More

The cocktail menu is extensive. The spirits list is very impressive. The service is stellar. But what made this place especially memorable was the entertainment. If you're wondering if there is a place in the world for lounge singers anymore, well apparently its Zurich. Right on the edge of cheesy, and yet somehow totally endearing. Seriously overpriced, but well, that's... More

Great bar with live music and some of Zürich's best cocktails. Staff is very attentive but it can take quite a while for drinks to arrive during busy hours. Staff speaks a wide range of languages. Don't worry if you don't speak German. Open til late. Well worth a visit or two.

Superb cocktail bar and LOVED the live piano music. Fantastic sophisticated scene. We had a few cocktails and some apps. Jason, Wolfgang, and Dieter were awesome hosts. Highly recommend.

The best bar i have ever been to. It is so classy and has so much to choose from. Our Bartender was very helpful in assisting us with choosing a drink and pointing out some rare options to choose from. The drinks were amazing and the ambiance was unimaginable. The Bartender even made dinner reservations for me and a friend... More

I have heard a lot of great things about Widder bar from my Swiss friends and finally I made it in a late summer afternoon. It is everything you want to have in a piano bar: huge selection of spirits and whisky, VERY creative menu of cocktails, attentive and friendly service. One can choose to explore the cocktail menu, or... More

Nice comfortable, lively bar. Service was great but drinks are expensive. 19 francs for a cosmopolitan, but definitely worth a stop with a huge variety of drinks and great music!

We had a great end to our evening at this bar. The choice of drinks is endless and the bartenders can make anything. I would definitely recommend a visit to this bar while in Zürich.
