Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Yes chaps, you havent quite figured out the English idiom of when we ask "so anyone know of anywhere better", we dont just mean you say a random name.

*Where* and *what* the places you are naming are rather important.

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Hi everyone!
Iīve just moved to Bern and always up for meeting new people!
The Altes Tramdepot (http://www.altestramdepot.ch/htm/e_home.htm) is a nice place to meet, and if the weather is good they have a cool place to sit outside and catch some sun.

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

The Turnhalle mentioned before is relatively near the train station, on Speichergasse. http://www.turnhalle-bern.ch/ It's a popular bar. If you were meeting early in the evening it might not be too crowded.

You could also meet at Tidbits which is right in the station itself, on the street level next to the entrance. It's a vegie buffet restaurant (pay by weight) but also nice for coffee or drinks. Always quite busy though.

Sorry I can't join you as I'm home with a baby but good on you all for being social in Bern. It does have more to offer than Starbucks.

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Maybe we could create a thread where if you do have plans and want others to tag along, you can post it there, just so that you dont have the same conversations happening in 2 different places and everyone is on the same (web)page.

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Sorry I did not keep that thread active last week I fell sick (flue) and could not go out.

I think the idea with a thread were you can post if you are going out and people can just tag along sounds great - shall I open such a thread or does it already exist?

Hope to still go out with you guys soon!
