Nice Bars Open Late During the Week (Zurich)

Help! Do any of you know of anything that is nice and is open late during the week? I like the Dolder (it's close to me) which is open till 0100, but I would like other options.

Thank you!

The Rive Gauche Bar belonging to Hotel Baur au Lac is open till 1.00 a.m. Then there's the Widder Bar adjacent to the Hotel Widder on Rennweg (not sure about opening times, but very, very nice) and if you're close to Paradeplatz there's the Bar of Hotel Savoy, also probably open till quite late - very oldy worldy type of place (Uncle Bertrand would probably like it there )

Hiya - Assuming the Dolder you're talking about is the 5 start hotel bar then places of a similar vein off the top of my head (and open late during the week) might be:

Terrasse Bar in Bellevue
Savoy Hotel Bar Bahnhofstrasse
Helvetia Hotel Bar by Stauffacher
Tao's Lounge Bar just off Bahnhofstrasse

Zuri west has a ton of late bars but many are a little more 'urban' than than the Dolder....

You might get a few more ideas here too....

Where can I get a good dirty martini, Zurich area

happy boozing!

Thanx for the suggestions- it really comes down to mostly hotels. As I mentioned, I like the Dolder for many reasons including after going a few times the wait staff already knows my preferences. But, we need an alternative!

If anyone would like to join us, we do have good time- please pm me! This is a weekly event.

PB'03- Zuri West is for the weekend fun, these bars are for suit fun.

I imagine, fun to be had during the week whilst still behaving with a modicum of decorum, wearing a suit and speaking in more or less hushed tones

as opposed to

Weekend fun - where anything and everything goes

It's a new, but not quite an official event as of yet because the night keeps changing, although the time doesn't ('cept this week, time change in the U.S. oblige) nor the "dress code". It would be nice to build this thing up.

Möpp for the win! And a Belvedere Martini for you if you join us.
