On sunny days the sidewalk seats with umbrellas are very popular as one can get in some excellent people watching. Inside, there is the main bar... More

This place is amazing if you want to have a drink in style. It's not to crowded and music is not too loud so you can chat without difficulities. Service was fast and friendly...and the drinks came with nice snacks included.

Positive: - food quality: cooked according to request, brilliantly seasoned! - choices: great variety - service: friendly and courteous Negative - pricy - service: we were served fries from a basket hold by the waiter. However we were given a very little quantity and were never refilled. When serving fries from a basket, one expects to have free refills or... More

The bar at the Hotel Central has a nicelocation and was not too crowded. The resident pianist was good and we found ourselves wishing to find a hotel bar lounge such as this in our own home town, were we could easily sit and have a drink and chat in a place with pulse.

This is a cozy little bar near Central Station in Zurich, just across the street from Old Town, at Hotel Central. The bar features live piano music and a lovely ambience for tossing a few back on a cold winter night.
