Excellent Cocktails and Staff
Sep 2021
I'm a regular guest at this place and I have NEVER been disappointed! No matter which cocktail you order, it's going to be perfectly made.
If you are unsure what to order the staff will help you to make a excellent choice.

It's open till 3 am from Tuesday to Saturday and great place to hangout in style. Try to reserve or be in time, it's no a insider tip anymore and the seats are limited.

Worst case, try a cocktal to go or directly order botteled-cocktails, it's still worth it ;-)

Tales Bar is my save bet when I have guests because I know that these guys deliver!

Tip: Try the Pisco Punch with Pineapple infused Pisco...

Total rip off
Jun 2021 • Friends
Total rip off and the worst gin tonic I had in this millennium. Absolutely unacceptable.
The gin was not existing but served with cucumber (!!!) which we never ordered. Six of those drinks. When complaining they did not even make an effort to correct.
My advice: make a big big turn around this place.

Sehr geehrter Herr Christian G. Herzlichen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, unsere Bar zu bewerten. Es tut mir sehr leid, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt bei uns nicht geniessen konnten. Für Ihren nächsten Barbesuch würde ich Ihnen gerne ein paar Tips geben. - Willigen Sie nicht in eine Bestellung ein, welche ein Kollege getätigt hat, ohne zu wissen, was dieser bestellt hat (nämlich einen Hendricks Tonic mit Gurke und Pfeffer). - Reklamieren Sie nicht erst, wenn die Drinks fast leer sind ( vorher hätten wir das sehr gerne korrigieren können) - Reklamieren Sie in einer angemessenen Art und Weise. Wie oben bereits erwähnt, tut es mir wirklich sehr leid, dass Ihr Aufenthalt in der Tales Bar so schlecht war. Mit freundlichen Grüssen Wolfgang B. ( Inhaber und Ihre Bedienung an diesem Abend)

No words
Jan 2021 • Couples
Tales is literally at our doorstep. We have lived here for the last few years and it has become a go-to for our date nights (no phones, just grab the house keys and a warm jacket).

And yes, the cocktails are amazing and they will practically tailor to your tastes. And yes, the food is amazing (and made in house, completely, all items). Their inventiveness knows no bounds - give them a single ingredient or a taste preference and watch them make your next absolute favorite cocktail in front of your eyes (and remember it, because it will be awesome enough to order off-menu every time)

That’s not what makes Tales perfect. The people there are what make it perfect. There are no words. Adrian, Michel and Wolfgang are the heart and soul of this place. There’s no Tales without them.

Get literally anything off their funkily named menu. The drinks may be light heartedly named, but there is no joking how amazing they are.

Next time you’re in Zurich, do yourself a huge favor and take it from someone who doesn’t usually like cocktails. Go to Tales - hands down the best cocktail bar here. And then - fall in love

The bartenders bar
Sep 2019 • Friends
The Tales bar has quickly become an institution in Zurichs‘ bartender scene. An excellent choice for a night out with great drinks served by an excellent crew. This bar is often frequented by other bartenders, which is always an excellent sign! It is hidden away right in the center of Zurich, and has an amazing cocktail menu. Seating is however limited, so make sure you come early, as there are only about 25 seats.

Personal tip: if you can, make sure you sit at the bar!

Great Cocktail Bar, Lovely Staff
Oct 2019
Small, cozy, traditional cocktail bar with an extensive, very interesting bar! The cocktail menu is all in German, as English speakers the staff were very happy to give us recommendations chat us through things. We had a number of cocktails all which were really great. Would definately go back & recommend. The staff were so lovely!
Dress code - Mix of people from citybreak tourists to business dressed people after work, we didnt feel out of place.
We didnt have food but that is also an option here.

Fantastic cocktails. Food till late in the morning. Absolutely great to enjoy a special bar atmosphere with a cocktail of your choice or even surprise drink for your actual mood. A bar that also the bar pros like to visit.

Unique bar in Zurich
Mar 2019 • Friends
Came across this bar few months ago and every visit makes me feel like at home. Unique outlet managed by skilled bartenders who know what they are doing. Bar ambience feels very cozy, warm and welcoming. Few tables, couple of chairs around bar... mostly all ingredients you could imagine, tinctures, infusions and fruits available. If you like some drink, tell them to make for you twist in their own way. This is the place where you can really trust your bartenders, getting perfect drink in many ways that you wouldn't have thought about before. Cocktails and water is served in frozen chilled glasses which makes impression right away. Also their pulled pork sandwich or goulash soup are amazing. Especially when you're hungry and feel like to have drink after work (they are open usually till 3am during week and till 4am on weekends). Place is nearby main train station so it's very convenient location. Service very attentive, professional and warm welcoming. Always happy to be back.

Amazing cocktails
Jan 2019 • Couples
The bar is very small but it's still nice and cosy. The staff is super friendly and competent. The cocktails are amazingly good and they also mix cocktails which are not on the menu

A bar for mixology lovers
Jan 2019 • Business
Smallish bar with sharp focus on satisfying and wowing the mixed drink lovers. Expert mixologists (Adrain Hintsch, previously at Jules Verne, now works here) can satisfy all your merely outlandish to cosmic taste preferences, and work up a stepwise plan to start from the mild and climb the ladder of complexity during an evening, starting at 20:00.

One of Zurich‘s best cocktail bars
Sep 2018 • Friends
The Tales Bar has really brought great class cocktails to Zurich. It’s a small cozy bar with seating for about 20 guests. I highly recommend sitting at the bar which seats around 5. They have a huge selection of the finest spirits from across the globe. The cocktail menu is extensive with somthing for everyone. I recommend sitting at the bar and asking the crew to make a recommendation. You will not regret it.
It fills up quickly throughout the week as it is extremely popular with locals. Come early and leave your car at home. There is no parking but plenty of public transportation connections.
