What a good idea to transform the so typical swimming pool only for ladies into a bare foot bar three nights a week during the warm season.

One night is a bar, then another night it has live music and finally on Sundays it is the dancing night with a DJ.

Drinks and foods are very basic, prices are expensive and the bad point is the entrance fee of CHF 15 per person.
We cannot still understand why entrance fee is as high as in a standard discotheque ! It is a real cash machine for the owner.

Tip: it opens at 20:00 but plenty of people queue there at least half an hour before. Check who is the DJ before going, music can turn to be weird, and also check who queues.

A very nice place, on Wednesday always good music and relaxed atmosphere.
Only downside is the fact that there is 1,5 Bar and getting drinks takes a bit too long.

Perfect spot to feel yourself like on holiday in the very center of the city! Relaxed atmosphere and "bare-foot" dress code( though we can keep your shoes if you wish), live music...And the best views of Limmat river and Grossmünster.

Romantic, unusual, old Victorian style lido. Ladies only swimming and relaxing area by day. By night elegant and special place.
Good for a date and also to impress your friends. No rowdy groups, no small children... you can sip on your drinks and dangle your feet in the river... views of Grossmünster and Fraumünster....nice way to start or end the evening. Shoes off as you enter. Queuing for drinks can take a while, tables limited but cushions provided for those sitting on the boardwalk. Definitely a place to stop for a drink from 8pm.
