A well poured Guinness in Lausanne

I am in search of a place that pours Guinness where there is not 2 inches of head. Since I am terrible at French I dare not ask the barman to wait a bit longer before topping up the drink...
Also, are there still Thursday night drinks happening with the EFers in Lausanne? I missed the last one and would like to meet people since we are new here.

Great Escape has a decent pint. Sometimes you'll get a bit of extra head, but the quality still beats the crap out of most of the other bars.

Also, the bar-staff speak English too.

And I think the Thursday night meet ups have become a monthly thing, instead of every two weeks

Great place for Guinness in central Lausanne is Bar Tabac.

http://bartabac.ch/pages.php?pages_i...1&pages_type=1

Also 50 sorts of Trappist beers to ponder.

Great vibe and great hosts.

Re: A well poured Guinness in Lausanne

never tried bar tabac but we'll have to go. also just near our house is a great little tiny bar that has decent beer possibilities- pi bar. if anyone goes give a pm and i can meet as it is literally a skip away!

also, great escape is a fun, english friendly bar. i like it alot- they have footie games on and the atmosphere is a blast. king size is ok, but i've seen some seedy sh*t there so i tend to stay away. ahahaha.

as for thursday night drinks- it'd be nice to see them more often but maybe someone could get a few different drink nights going so there would be more choices of where and when???

I just got back from a vacation, and so didn't post anything for this week. It seems like the other two guys who have also posted these events in the past are also not around for it tonight, so nothing got posted, sorry. We'll try to make it happen next week. I also got a PM from someone else asking about, username cquinlan, so you could try to PM him/her and see if you guys could go grab a drink together.
Chris.
