“Terrible Service...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

In terms of décor, the place is decent. Unfortunately the service is so arrogant, egotistical and pathetic, it leaves a very bad taste in your mouth.

While the clueless Zürich locals might consider it a hip place to be, their lack of any idea of what service or hospitality is, compounds the problem. You have to know what good service is in order to expect or demand it. Clearly PurPur appeals to the muppets who know no better.

Terrible terrible place...

“Absolutely Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Well, it's been a very long time since I have seen 6 grown "men" throw a women to the ground, but that's exactly what I saw at this place on Friday night. All this because the blond "manger" did not like the fact that she was complaining about his rudeness and the lack of service. I was very surprised that this happened as it's not the Switzerland I know and love. What was even more surprising was that the lead bouncer (well more like lead thug) was complaining because the lady in question was speaking English and he made some rather due comments about foreigners going home. When I called him out about this and spoke with him in German you can only imagine my amusement (and I use the world likely as children might read this) to discover he was a foreigner himself. Really not a typical experience in Zurich, which is itself a great city, but this place is absolutely disgusting, 6 grown male adults throwing out a women and throwing her on the floor because she dared complain about the poor service is not the kind of place I would recommend anyone going.
