Lively Bars, Zurich area

Hi all,

I'm not long in Zürich and have a friend visiting for the weekend - wondered whether anyone could recommend a couple of lively (better still, raucous) bars or nightclubs that we could head to.

All advice appreciated - thanks in advance!

It's a bit hardcore, but I enjoyed it (club)

Re: Lively Bars

Search for Stairs, just out of Town.

Otherwise, take a walk down Langstrasse. Something there for everybody.

Re: Lively Bars

Also check out Sugar Lounge in Zurich Center. It's a pretty neat place to hangout/drink/dance and plays different styles of music on different nights. Have been several times and always had a good night out with the crew.

Weirdish bar below, I like it sort of a brothel chic.

Re: Lively Bars

When everywhere else has booted you out, Meyers Bar at Lochergut is the only place to go. And, if you're lucky, the 24-hour bakery bar on Zweierstrasse will keep you topped up until Bubbles opens at 10am. (Only been lucky once so far, mind you.)

This city is full of tiny, crazy bars. There's one more or less opposite Bahnhof Enge that is the size of a toilet but constantly full and loud. Stay away from the big commercial venues and find somewhere obscure and kooky and you're guaranteed some craziness.

The DJ's at Mascotte are really iPods on "shuffle", but to each his own.

My guide for DJ's and types of music playing is: www.tillate.ch

Omg, Terry and Cata1yst!

I was halfway to recommending Splendid Bar followed by Gräbli Bar...

(...you don't expect me to give away all my secrets on here, do you..?)

Again, thanks very much! These places sound great, I'll check them all out over the next couple of weeks.
