Had a couple of guys on singing which were great to watch and listen to performing then later a DJ (think the owner). Played some great tunes and even after my wife constantly nagging the poor chap... More

Perfect table outside with great views of the lake and elsewhere. Only criticisms are price of cocktails and the fact that nearly everyone was smoking on the terrace. Indoors the waiter was superb and the food faultless. Do not expect a cheap night out here tho!

Great view but the drink we're not made with love and quite expensive. Trendy place and long wait in the bar.

I visited the rooftop-bar on a sunny afternoon and really enjoyed the wonderful view. I got to know the place from an App that recommends tips from locals. As much as I liked the bar, I went there three times before it was actually open. Their opening times are rather strange for a city like Geneva. Obviously I could have... More

We had a quick drink at rooftop 42 last weekend. We loved the view and the service and drinks were great. It was fairly expensive, but no more so than other similar places in Geneva.

Nice rooftop bar where all the people gather after a day of expo. Met some friendly clients here so was good way to talk more informal. Met some other people as well. Diner inside was good with fine wine. Again next year? Yes, quite sure about that! D.

I am a member of an organisation that meets twice a year in Geneva and books out places like this for a "cocktail" on the evening between our meetings. The quality of the service and the snacks at Rooftop 42 was, in my book, the best we have ever had. The location is a bonus, too. There was plenty of... More
