*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

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

@MariV: simply ask at the bar for the EF people - the staff all speak English. The Talacker is a simple venue with a decent terrace to hang out on a warmish September evening and always has a lively crowd.

We haven't had a Midweek drinks night for a while; I hear from many they can't make the 'Viadukt on Thursday' nights for various reasons and I'm feeling sentimental for the nights when 90+ people would roll into the Talacker "just for a quick drink" and end up dancing on the sofas or getting married and having kids.

If you're a first timer, simply walk up and say hello. We'll have you settled in no time. Couples, newbies, misfits, hipsters, the shy, and old faces all welcome. Leave your work / home stresses at the door, get yourself a revitalising beverage and meet some new people.

Easy.

I understand the gentleman you are referring to has seen the error of his ways and checked himself into the dry house of corrections. Although he is a Zurich nightlife legend, his profile is mercifully low now. The 'Diving into a glass of water' routine is well worth seeing though.

Is that what the Talacker looks like when the lights are on and one is sober? Never seen it this way...

Re: Midweek Drinks at the Talacker Bar, Zurich

My guts turn cold and my head hurts at the mere thought of the debauchery that went on in that place.

I remember when Mark ended up in the pond outside... in the middle of winter.

If Mark ended up in the pond after a few shandies that tells you how "greased" the rest of us were.

I bought a tray of Jagermeisters one night, people had some sore heads in the morning. Either that or the dodgy beer! Happy memories.

Even Shorrick appeared from Geneva, that's how legendary these events were.

Won't be the same without you in your pink shirt, mate. Hope your new life out there is going well.

He missed the last connection so took a cab home, then realised his house key was in his coat... which was still in the bar. So he turned around, took the cab back and in his moan about the cost of the cab fare walked straight through the pond / fountain effort outside.

I think of him every time I narrowly miss doing the same thing myself

Yeah. A lot of memorable evenings happened in this bar. I just remembered how I discussed with Begga what we should do with the 2 litre ketchup bottle that we nicked from Nathu...

I don't want to appear cliquey, but having just googled "Talacker Bar" > Images it's hilarious to see just how influential EF search engine optimising has been. There's even a pic of a passed out StirB on the first page! It was four years ago..! Go EF!

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