Bars in Webergasse, basel

Hi,
I am just a visitor for a few weeks and woul dlike to ask,
Are the bars in webergasse (Basel) all like the expensive dance clubs where you need to buy drinks for the girls etc? I am just interested in singles sort of bars where I could meet people (girls) just for company, chat drink together sort of thing, strike up a friendship etc. I don't mean hook up with WGs but just like minded women. What about places like Cleopatra bar in brantgasse?
Any info or experiences in these places appreciated.

UUUMM there are no specific "hey im single, wanna f**K?" bars in basel.

they are all whore houses - you buy the "lady" a drink and thats the cut for the bar.

and welcome to the forum

Re: Bars in Webergasse, basel

Thanks Rob1 and for the welcome as well. Not really my kind of scene, for that I'd rather go to the reputed clubs aka studio. Not looking to pickup a street worker, and not looking for just one night stands. The guide I found on this forum lists some of these as singles bars but also mentions red light district. Hence my query.

Just to reiterate then, there's no such thing as a "singles bar" in Basel. Closest thing would be to hang around at closing time in Pickwick's or Paddy's and see if anyone's too drunk to notice...

Re: Bars in Webergasse, basel

Thanks Ace1 and Rob1 for clarifications. So is Cleopatra bar which is outside the Red light area also a similar type?

Hi Rob1, I don't speak German however I did look at the site and wasn't sure myself. I have passed by some of the dance clubs with strippers but never gone into one. I guess I'm afraid of getting fleeced. Was hoping someone having visited Cleopatra's might pipe up. Having said that, its just now while properly browsing the forum came across the social bit and looks like I missed an opportunity for some company saturday last. I guess I will try the Irish pubs.

Re: Bars in Webergasse, basel

Many thanks for the pointer on that to Rob1. I have been just restricting myself to pubs within close walking proximity to my hotel. First time at Paddys really enjoyed the food and cider. Had to walk back after stuffing my face. Anyway its a short tram ride so guess I'll frequent the place.
