Meeting Point: Shamrock Irish Pub

There's a regular weekly Sunday night pub quiz being held at the Shamrock Irish pub in Wollishofen in Zurich that has become legendary.

www.shamrock-irishpub.ch
http://map.search.ch/zuerich/studackerstr.1
044 482 10 62

It's got very popular now.
It's lively, free to enter and a good laugh.
As it's got more and more popular you need to get there fairly early to get a table. I would recommend aiming by 6:30pm (or outside later during the summer) to be on the safe side.
But if the tables are all taken you can ask if people can squeeze up, or you can sit / stand at the bar or ask Bart if he can find you some where to sit. During the summer, some people have even participated whilst sitting on the tables on the sun terrace!

The smoking ban comes into force on 1st May, so we can see if Bart has returned the two extractor units fitted so the air wasn't too smokey.

There are more & more teams each week. If you come alone or in a couple, quizmaster Jim or Bart the everso friendly owner can pair you up with another team. You can even ask complete strangers if you can join them, it really is that friendly. Many members from this Forum attend regularly so you may even make new acquaintences.

The winners get 50CHF. Second win 25CHF (or a round of drinks - not bad considering it costs nothing).

Anyhow it's free and something fun and interesting to do on a Sunday night (8:00pm till 10:30pm so not that late for Monday morning). Laughs aplenty.

They (friendly Irish owner Bart and his team) also serve nice food from the Irish/British menu until late. You can also dine or drink outside on the sun terrace.

Different teams seem to win each week but it's more for the fun than the 'sport'.

The evidence would suggest otherwise.

I can't do sums, I'll give you that.

But everything else... it'll be like the Alamo.

Re: The Shamrock Sunday Evening Pub Quiz

Was there last night with colleagues. The new terrace is great, and only a hop skip and a jump from the end of Tram 7.

No Guinness though, only Murphys.

You're going to have Ozzy Osbourne pee against you?
How will that help?

Well, presuming there's no drug testing for the quiz, I can think of all kinds of benefits...

hello the Shamrock Irish Pub web site says that the quizz is 19:00-21:30 can anyone tell me which is the correct time and the best time is to show up to get a good table? I have never been before. Thanks.

http://www.shamrock-irishpub.ch/events_regular.htm
Time has been delayed in recent months. Don't get there after 7:30 as you may not get a table. If there are only 1 or 2 of you Bart or Jim can join you up with another table.
If we posted 8pm as the start time, people wouldn't get there until the last minute and complain about not getting a table in time for the start. It's a good laugh with lots of fun banter, and Jim (Weejeem) the quizmaster loves nothing more than heckling.....I think ..... give it a try.

....as ever, and as you know Deborah, just turn up and speak to Bart the friendly owner or Jim the equally affable Quizmaster, and they will find you a team to join.

Maybe you can win the 4 comedy tickets even more funny than the quiz. Might put a smile on your face!

Re: The Shamrock Sunday Evening Pub Quiz

Hi everyone,

I love a good pub quiz, so count me in! Only been here a few weeks though, so I don't have a team - anyone want me?! Got to be honest, I'm not great on the general knowledge, but I'll try me best!
