A grande dame on the Zurich hotel scene, Eden au Lac has created the swishest of the swish rooftop bars.
Thanks to its location on the 5th floor of Haus Ober, above the casino, the restaurant-cum-bar enjoys enviable views over Zurich’s rooftops.
Divided into a mixed and a women only swimming area during the day, it turns into a bar and concert venue after 7pm. Watch out for some of the city's finest acoustic concerts during the summer months.
Hotel Helvetia’s rooftop bar is decadent Zurich summertime at its best. It may be tiny, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in views over the leafy inner city.
During the day it’s women only in this Badi right next to Zurich’s town hall, but in the evening the location turns into the 'Barfussbar' with weekly concerts and cultural events. Be careful not to fall into the pool when dancing the night away under the stars.
The perfect place for drinks after work or lounging around on a sunny Saturday afternoon on sofas set on a wooden decked terrace which sits right out on the waters edge.
The Sky Terrace bar perches atop the Schweizerhof Bern with delightful 360-degree views over the city’s Unesco World Heritage old town.
Seerose is Zurich’s answer to Saint Tropez. Suspended above Lake Zurich, its wooden terrace complete with pristine white lounge furniture mimics the deck of a luxurious yacht.
El Mojito Tropical Lounge is a throbbing summertime cocktail bar-cum-beach shack on a lakeside jetty. Admire the view or the beautiful people, or both.
It may be a hotel however its trendy lounge bar isn’t just for the clientele, but has created a reputation as a popular night spot in its own right.
