I don't mean to shatter your dreams and all but Wetzikon isn't really known for its exciting nightlife. I suggest, that you have a look at the events calendar, maybe there's a meetup in Zurich, which is only 20 min away by train.

Re: Night out in Wetzikon

Obviously I know there is much more going on in Zurich, or even Uster. But there should be things going on in Wetzikon too.

Re: Night out in Wetzikon

The pub fest is quite entertaining. Not sure when it is this year, though. I'll keep my eyes open for you.

Otherwise, there's always the big city.

On behalf of the entire forum, I would like to apologize for your location of residence is not up to Paris or New York. Why don't you follow me over to the Selecta vending machine thread, where you can give us your insight in comparing the inventory of Japanese vending machines versus the Swiss Selecta machines.

Re: Night out in Wetzikon

I live down the road from you in Bubikon and have been living there since January 2008. Wetzikon is quite well known for some rather seedy places - some chavvy clubs, some strippy clubs, some 'gentlemen' clubs - so unless you're into sticky floors, table dancing or ladies of the erm, night....

This might explain some of the reactions you've been getting from those who've been here a little longer.

But reputations are often unfair, and I'm sure there are some nice places too, and if you find any please let us know. On the main Aathal road there's a great big place called 'Evita' which admittedly I have never ventured into, but I guess it's probably the biggest liveliest venue in town.

I still tend to go out in Zürich though as the transport there is just so easy and there's tons to do, and it's just a bit....nicer !

Wetzikon in fact is part of Greater Zürich in other words whatever happens in Zürich happens in Wetzikon and whatever happens in Wetzikon also happens in Zürich

You chose a good location fairly close to the City and well linked by S-Bahn. In most cities of modern times, average people have to take lodgings in Suburbia. You for example have Zürich (etc) on one side and Rapperswil on the other. The closeness to both cities is a FORTE of Wetzikon.


I have my lodgings in Glattbrugg. The PLUS of the place is the closeness to Airport, downtown and lake

Forget it Wolli, she's not having any of it. I mentioned train earlier and she went ballistic.
