I visited Cranberry on Sunday April 5th... On my first trip to Zurich. I had googled Gay friendly bars and Cranberry kept coming up. The staff was very nice and the bartender made me a classic James Bond martini called Vesper. This drink includes Gin, Vodka and Lillet. I've read some reviews suggesting the drinks are expensive, but I found... More

I have been here often, sometimes by myself and other times with friends. The bar staff is very friendly and they are quick to approach your table to take your drink order. They also provide the little fish crackers on all of the tables and sofas and offer refills. The drinks are a bit pricey, but during happy hour all... More

Found this cocktail bar walking home from the bierhaus, having become saturated with beer a nice cocktail was needed. Was enthusiastically greeted by the barman, who brought an English language menu to our table. We were told it was happy hour, which we thought would mean buy one get one free drinks, turns out it was double measures! Two doubles... More

The Bar is OK but the drinks are expensive. The staff is boring and they definitely need to be more fun... the team is perfect for retired people ;) The music is bad and they should really work on it... As regular customer, they don't even offer you a drink from time to time and of course no extra (1dcl... More

Let start by saying this is a bar with a large gay clientele. The bar itself is fashionable and well maintained. The prices are very reasonable during happy hour ( 5-7), after that it gets more expensive but not more than you expect in Zurich. Martinis are prepared traditionally and precisely. A great place to go.

The worst bar in Zurich. Cocktails suck, price are much higher than other places, music is terrible, and clients arrogants. Most importantly, the service is incapable extremly unpolite : when I asked for a beer just before closing, I was told to "GO AND LICK THE TOILET'S FLOOR OR LEAVE" If you look for a nice gay bar in Zurich,...

We went here two nights and the bar staff was very friendly. We went on a Sunday night and there was basically no one but the four of us. Monday night was a little more crowded. Would recommend this gay bar and it's walkable to go there from Old City Zurich.
