I used to frequent the bar for afterwork drinks. the atmosphere is good although sometimes very full. The drinks are really amazing there as well as the wraps they make. Good location for aperos.

We were staying at the Sheraton one block up and walked by Barfly's a couple of times. The name intrigued us so despite the oppressing heat we decided to have a couple of drinks at one of their sidewalk tables. They have a good cocktail list - caipirhinas were the drink of choice, which were excellent. For its location and... More

Can't think of worse service in Zurich, or anywhere for that matter. Hard to get anyone's attention even when sitting at the bar. Very rude head bartender who we had to take to task on the service.

Went there on a birthday party. For that occasion it was the right place, nice sofas with a table in the middle. Prices were moderate for Zurich and there is nice vibe in the bar.

I went already few times and i'm always really impressed by the level of bartenders. Great cocktails made with style and passion. Nice atmosphere and easy prices. Fingerfoods are not bad as well.Definitely the best cocktail bar in Zürich.

Highly recommendable place with a huge offering of drinks and beers at a reasonable price (for Zurich, that is). Very friendly staff and a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Much better than most of the fancy places in that area!

A really good option to have some drinks in Zurich for an affordable price... The quelity of the drinks is excellent and for Zurich prices is very decent besides you can get every drink that you can image....their drinks menu covers all drinks that you can think of and if you don't find something there probably they will prepare it...

Great vibe, as expensive as you'd unfortunately expect in Zurich, but a really nice place to visit. Recommended....

I've been here a couple of times for drinks after work with coworkers. It gets really crowded, so it's nice to make a reservation in advance and get some comfy lounge seating. I like the white couches along the sides. Bathrooms are clean and elegant, and there is a open coat rack on the side to hang up your coats.... More
