the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

Does anyone know this bar ?

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attracti...ar-Zurich.html

Not only it is the most expensive in the word! but also the one that serves the smallest cocktails size!
Cocktails starts at 20 Fr. and they are so small... 20 Fr is really a lot considering that their cost of goods sold per cocktail is virtually 0.

As a matter of fact, their COGS is negative. Hence, you should be paid for drinking their cocktails.

I have no idea why people top rate this pub, that buys liquors for almost nothing and then sells for at least 10000% markup

Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

Just give it a rest. You already have 10 pages of ridiculous BS in your other thread.

Here's directions for your way out. Grab a one-way ticket and go wherever you want, as long as it's not here. I'm sure your dad will happily pay for it. See ya never.

It is very difficult to deliver this bar. Many have lost their life. Please see here for the last incident which just happened a few days ago http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/zuerich/...story/28857042 Very tragic.

Also, the bar has no license to sell Cordon Blue's thus they need a higher markup to compensate the lost revenues.

But then he may well be the first newbie to get so many reds in such a short time? Still a long way to go before he gets to be first.


Although, with the way he is ranting on, he might beat The Local soon!


Add on, add on :-)

Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

I love the Widder Bar! I doubt they pay nothing for their products. (They have some very fine whisk(e)ys, for instance. It has a nice atmosphere and they often have live music. Is it expensive? Yeah, sure, but you don't go there to knock back pints! If you don't like it, go somewhere cheaper!

I went to Grieder and they were selling plain t shirts for 295CHF. I would never pay that for a plain t shirt, so, guess what? I didn't buy one.

PS, they had tracksuit pants. Plain, no logo or printing or anything. 695CHF!!
