Jules Verne Wine Bar: This unknown hotspot is inaccessible to most tourists unless you know where to go. Pass the ground floor restaurant and circle back to the elevator where you’ll take it to the 11th floor. Once your there expect to have your breathe taken away by the spectacular panoramic view from the entire room of windows looking out over the city lights. The view is relaxing and captivating as you sip the finest selections of wine and cheese, a great place for a date or a business dinner.
Teuscher: Spread out with other shops and food venues this chocolatier is well known for its diverse selection and top of the line melty chocolate. The ingredients are not only diverse but completely decadent, but don’t expect a small charge for these little morsels. These unique goodies come with a chunky price tag, but biting into one and smoothing it over your tongue will make you forget all about it. Try the champagne truffles.
Cafe Odeon: This venue is the hit of the boho scene and is always filled with the coolest cats since its debut in 1912. It’s not the cheapest joint but the cozy atmosphere with small round tables and dim lighting allows for revelations and pseudo intellectual discussions to your hearts content. Like most boho beatnik spots of joy there is a lot of cigarette smoke and fairly poor service, but it’s all worth it for the experience.
Zeughauskeller: An old arsenal from 1472 this massive dining hall seats up to two hundred people at once and the numbers alone will shock you. Known for its rustic décor, large wooden and brass chandeliers, as well as the Zurich carvings throughout the walls o old noblemen. The art alone is worth checking out this old time restaurant if the food and amazing draft beer selection in steins doesn’t work for you.
