02.09.2011 to 03.09.2011 18:00 to 00:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich, 8005
Event Type: Other
Location: Markthalle, Limmatsrasse 231
Price: Free entry

Come and help us celebrate the 1st birthday of the Markthalle Im Viadukt on Friday 2nd September!

Details are still a bit sketchy but I can say that there will be lots of good food, including some free tasters and live music. The market won't look quite as normal as some islands will be partially taken down ready for some major changes on the Monday...... more details on that later.

I've put a start time as 18.00 but I'm sure we will be kicking off earlier.

As the program shows, some of shops in the arches will also be hosting events during the evening. See you there!

Grump, is this because there is likely to be a high foreign contingency at this event or just to make us southerners feel at home?

Simplest is to take tram 4 or 13 from HB to Dammweg, and backtrack 50m.

(Edit: seems to have been answered, but here you are anyway)

Depends on your angle:
  • Trams 4 & 13 to Dammweg
  • Buses 33 & 72 to Escher Wyss Platz and then walk four minutes to Dammweg or wait for above trams to ferry you
  • Any train to / from Hardbrücke, take first right on exiting and head straight on
  • There'll be a free rikshaw service to take you from one end to 'other.

Good man, then I can also talk to you about coming and helping me hang up some lamps... When I mean helping, it really means you haing them up whilst I make tea and coffee...

Godminster is sold out again, sorry!

I forgot to mention that this evening and tomorrow will be kiddy friendly as a little carousel is being built in front of the market.

And my new port delivery has arrived so I'll also be serving Rosé Port chilled - trust me, it's fantastic!

That's just part one of my new beer selection, the big delivery is arriving Monday. In all, I will have about 50 different beers.... almost one a week for a year.

Mr Nicky will be gutted he's missing the Spitfire

He did miss it, it all went last night! (as did all the Rappi Gold on draught)

Thanks to everyone who came down and spread the word, it was much busier than we expected. I left about 1.00 and the market was still pretty busy and most of the shops in the arches were still partying too.

We continue the celebrations today, be sure to say hello if you come down!

...yes I think I may have had something to do with that

I also did my best to help you empty the black stuff

Great night, great to catch up with so many people I hadn't seen for a while and great to see a lot of new faces...

Enjoy today!

Re: Viadukt 1st Birthday celebration party.

I had a lovely evening yesterday; what a fine atmosphere Zurich can conjure up when it's given permission to have fun. Strangers talking and laughing together and no sign of any trouble, despite stalls and stores being wide open during a party. I'm not sure it would have passed off so happily in London, for example.

Congrats to the businesses for working a super long day and maintaining their good cheer. My head's a wreck after all that black beer but a swim in the river fixed it. Happy birthday Viadukt!
