Lausanne: Any Popular Bars with English people & Staff?

Hello Lausanne!

I am just curious what bars around here are popular for English speakers? I am working hard on my French but sometimes it is nice to be able to mingle with people and staff without needing intensive focus and concentration
So far I King Size Pub has been the only one I have been able to find. Is there any others?

Cheers

I think GreatEscape usually has a few English speakers, have you tried there?

Third vote for the Great Escape.

In addition, most of the anglophone expats that work in my office end up joining glocals for english-speaking chat and activities: http://www.glocals.com/things-to-do/lausanne

Doesn't the director of "12 Years a Slave" play 'throw and catch' with a baseball and glove, against the wall, there sometimes?

Re: Lausanne: Any Popular Bars with English people & Staff?

I've just moved to Lausanne, and I have also been discovering the various bars. Great Escape is one of the best, and I also really enjoy the Crazy Canute in Flon (obviously Canadian sport bar themed) and the Etoile Blanche. Is there any kind of organised Lausanne meet-up for drinks? Would be good to meet some other people and learn more about the city, as well as have a beer or two?

You can log into www.glocals.com to check out organised meet ups (never been so can't comment on them). Internations also do events and arrange nights out for networking (www.internations.org)
