Popular as a club, restaurant and event center. Kaufleuten is an institution in Zürich for hip nightlife and cultural events as well, particularly small venue artists and literature readings. I think there has been a generational shift since the public that come for the nightlife are very young college aged at best, but very well dressed to impress. It's really... More

Interesting evening in a posh location. Luckily we were very early before the crowd flooded the area ( after 22:30 ). It started relatively easy with good house music, an acceptable selection of drinks and friendly service. The funny thing are the guest. Between very important junior consultants and bankers, young ladies that are looking for the big spender or... More

No structure nothing is organized... the group was very disappointed and we... More

I've been to Kaufleuten quiet a few times in the past. Here are the pros: You'll have quiet a few good drinks, the venue itself it's nice and the staff mostly professional. From time to time there are also enjoyable concerts. The cons: TOO MANY WANNABES. I don't know how else I could describe the amount of teenies acting like... More

Arrogant, lazy service. The bar staff couldn't be bothered to take my order. When I re-ordered twice and they forgot my burger they didn't apologize. I'm still astonished. I won't be coming back

Not too pricey. Really great food. I highly recommend the kopfsalad and the pumpkin soup. Bright, high ceilings, open and airy. Young kids around with families, behaving themselves. An excellent choice for lunch.

I've been a couple of times and every time there have been fights outside the club. The drinks are too expensive and the music is average/bad depends on the party. The club is always crowded and most of the people are 18 years old or sometimes even younger (altough its 18+). The location is huge and the club itself is... More

I've been a couple of times when i was youngee and visited again now. The club is crowded, the people are mostly 18 year olds. The admission fee and the prices of the drinks are outrageous! I would skip this club and go to the bars around langstrasse instead. Much better crowd.
