... and apparently to the Interwebs as well. Sorry Julie, but all caps is considered bad manners, and is generally referred to as "shouting". The reason is that capital letters are harder to read than small letters.

Please don't take this as a criticism, I'm trying to help.

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Just moved in to Switzerland and Vevey. So far only had the chance to explore the main square and did not see much going on in terms of night life. Figured it was more a family town. Glad to heard there is more going on.

hmm.. sound like everyone are talking about some other place really :S
ive been out in vevey but it was completely dead, i guess montreux works but if you want to party you should defenently go to Lausanne, they have the nices clubs and bars in switzerland!! then you can allwas take the morningtrain home, its around 5.00 when the clubs close
Like I said, it depends what you're looking for

Personally, I like a lot of people in a place with a good atmosphere, good choice of beers at reasonable prices and I'm a massive fan of live music so I go to places that cater for me.

I'm not really into the club scene so don't go to Lausanne that often (unless it's to see a band or for something specific).

There is always something going on in Vevey and the surrounding areas but you have to look.



P.S. August 29th there is a live act on at the English pub "Jazz CafÚ" in Montreux if anyone's interested?

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Well that's really interesting to read your comments and suggestions Thanks to all. Jenny, I am tempted to visit the Bout du Monde tonight, but I do not feel like going alone the first time I might wait for CarmenJulie o come over from South Africa so we transform it into a great girls' night out. Jenny, I see that you live very close. I too live at the Tour de Peilz Maybe see you one of these days

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Hello Dragonfly, sorry to hear that you want to go out tonight but are alone, me home as well, but not in South Africa, i live here now in Swiss. I noticed a place called "Baobab" casino & nightclub, but not sure whether anything is happening there. Do you know if it is good. Just am interested to know because it is walking distance from our apartments.

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Oh, you are already here???? Greeeeeat

I know that Baobab place at the corner. Never been in it but I thought it might be a gentlemen's club from the girl pictures you can see on the notice boards near the door.

Well, when you feel like meeting, just lt me know

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Thanks for your advice about the Baobab, but not sure why? i was a distance from the place only saw the name so never got close enough to see the posters of the girls, as Dragonfly mentioned. You probably advise me not to go there because it is quite "Dodgy" so i, we, will stay away.

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Hi everyone,

There is a concert on on Friday the 19th of September at 21h at Espace Guinguette (just behind the train station).

It is actually a "vernissage" but is an open event.

You can listen to some of their songs here :

http://www.ulmoband.com/?%5B_music_%5D

(I recommend "head" and "thirst" - they're the most recent ones, but they're all good )

If anyone's interested in coming, let me know and we'll meet up beforehand.

Otherwise, I go to Montreux quite a bit as my mate Keith has a bar there which is full of expats all the time.
I'd love to go there if you could give me more details!

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

It's about 5 minutes walk from Montreux train station (heading towards Villeneuve and not Lausanne)

Address is Avenue des Alpes 8, 1820 Montreux

They have free internet access in there so some afternoons you just see the back of laptops!

Can get busy when the football's on!

Otherwise, Keith and Maggie are great, food is excellent, good atmosphere...

see you down there!

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Just going back to the earlier posts about le Bout du Monde, it's co-owned by one of my workmates. He regularly emails me the future programme of events so if ever you are interested send me a PM and I'll forward it to you.

I haven't been there yet myself... it seems like I should!

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Hi there,

I have recently moved here from Gran Canaria and really miss going out.
Can anyone recommend a place to go out where 1) I wouldn't be the only one over 18 (am 32) and where 2) I wouldn't have to feel too awkward about going in alone? Or even better, anyone fancy dragging me along? Jenny, Carmen Julie, are you still there?
Can anyone recommend a place in Vevey for watching football? Champions league, Premier league? I don't think there is one.. I really fancy going all the way to Lausanne...

Thanks

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Yes, still around!

Just pretty busy with work at the moment!

I still stick with the Bout du Monde as a decent bar in Vevey.

For Champions League matches, Keith's in Montreux is probably your best bet.

Re: [Vevey] Any Nightlife?

Hi everyone,

I will be moving / commuting to Vevey from the start of this July and this thread has really helped in terms of giving me hope that it would not turn into 14 hour days due to the lack of anything to do ... I take it they have 'cool' bars there also ? or is it more of a 'pub' culture?


thanks in advance for your advice.

Regards

Rico
