Being a thrifty traveller my heart ached paying 23 Swiss francs for a whiskey cocktail, but it is simply worth it, and I guess considering the surroundings it's reasonably priced.. Pianist was incredible, and not too imposing. Great night but be prepared to pay up. Amazing selection of whiskeys also.

We went to this bar on our weekend break in Zurich. Great choice of drinks and brilliant atmosphere. Prices were worth it given the location and setting. We'll be going back!

Went here with friends last week and it was one of the most atmospheric bars I've been to. Fabulous selection of drinks, any whisky you could imagine etc. You will be hard pushed to ask for any drink or cocktail that they do not have on offer The staff are first class and seem to speak many languages with ease....

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.

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
