Looking for new friends in Bern

I moved to the upper part of Valais a couple of months ago and am still looking for English speaking either in Valais or Bern to go out for drinks or dinner.

Maybe you are also new to Switzerland and just want to meet new people?

Sounds good! I'll be in the US for a week but I'll drop you message.

Why not have a night out in Bern if you live in Visp where else would you want to go out?

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Im up for this. Bern is a very pretty place but good God its dull. Almost no decent places to go, though the tram depot is OK.

Even Pickwicks is a waste of time. Its basically a Swiss bar that just happens to be in an English "setting", but completely lacking in a decent atmosphere.

Hello all!

I'm in Bern as well and would love to go out!

I don't often get on here though, so PM me if anybody feels like going for a drink soon!

Re: Looking for new friends in Bern

Does anybody have a better suggestion than "Starbucks" on a where to meet basis?

I only know a few places to eat and drink around town, the tram depot is the wrong side of town, Im not a great fan of Pickwicks and the only restaurant I really know is Ankers.

Any Bern gurus with anything better or is Starbucks a simple answer for a sort of tentative random bunch of people from the internet prodding random strangers and ask if they speak English?
