*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Talacker Bar, Talacker 41, Zurich

All welcome! Come and meet the faces behind the names- enjoy a few drinks and make new acquaintances!

To find the Talacker : http://map.search.ch/zuerich/talacker-41

It's around the corner from Paddy Reilly's; staggering distance from Stauffacher, Paradeplatz, Bahnhofstrasse and er, Kaufleuten.

Trams 2 / 9 to Sihlstrasse.

There'll be an area reserved for us. If in doubt, ask the staff where the English Forum area is and you'll be fine: they all speak English. We're usually in the far back corner under the Doggy murals and useless Disco lights.

There are often many of us in the bar and we're all English speakers, so you'll have no difficulty finding us.

Most people come alone, so don't be shy of approaching! Many friendships and babies (!) have been created from an initial step in the door, so log off and come in for some face to face conversation Most of us are a lot more attractive in the flesh...

See you there from 19:00!

Bar telephone: 044 211 2050

Never mind that pic, I want to know why this photo comes up when searching for Talacker Bar. Care to spill the beans?

I didn't have my glasses on and read that "as" as quite another two letter word. It quite put me off my ice cream.

The link from UM is 26.09.2007!!!

Cata1yst - Okay fully recovered now from last night in Basel + wingman is in attendance so all is good ;-)

Oh dear I was there...What stays in the Talacker stays in the Talacker, erm sort of..

Quote from that night (DaveA) All is okay then!

That was pretty wild....I dont think the Talacker knew what hit it.

Someone pinched my jacket, but I did manage to acquire a nice "I luv Black Sheep" badge and an English forum business card, so thats OK...

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

Again from the same night..

Wednesday Night Drinks @ Talacker Bar Zurich

He added that 105 pitchers of beer were sold that night, each of which contain 1.75 litres. Add the individual glasses sold plus the shots, mixed drinks etc. and it comes to, er, quite a lot of alcohol. We peaked at around 40 people at any one time, by my guesstimate.

105 Pitchers?!

Except that StirB has become really fit and even more handsome - so you wouldn't recognise him now.
Sadly, also lies!

Will definitely try to make it along, during the long lulls in play of the Arsenal vs Olypiakos game!

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

It is and it isn't a good way to make new friends: the problem is not having a good time with new faces - you certainly will if you arrive with a smile and perhaps a pitcher of beer - but the next morning trying to remember who said what, who was who and does anyone have any paracetamol as I've a stinking hangover...

Vegas principles apply, all. Here are some sofas I've danced on; for the sake of discretion I'll mention no names of those who've joined me, hence the lack of people in the picture:




[My dear Ma quite likes the mauve 3-seater; if anyone can help me get it out of there without them realising, there's a beer in it for ya]

Sounds very promising, I feel like I can continue dancing on the sofas and bars here just like I did during my student life
I need to start working on my beer consumption

Is that what the Talacker looks like when the lights are on and one is sober? Never seen it this way...
Nah, that is Uncle M's old living room. ...or is that the same thing?


How is Singa, got your hearing back after the GP?

Who's the Funny with the tags on this thread? It is NOT a swingers club. Cross dressers very welcome, though. Saying that, they do have 'Male Curry' on today's menu at the Talacker...

Welcome to the Talacker, where beer quality comes second to having a good time. This be no 'expat' bar duckie and I can assure you you won't worry about the beer until three seconds after tomorrow morning's alarm rings.

The rioja's rather good.
