Pleasingly incongruous, this bar and live music venue will keep you entertained all night.
In keeping with Carouge’s Italianate style, from the outside this place looks like an old-fashioned rural inn, with pretty shutters and paintwork faded in the strong Italian sun – you’d expect to find an olive grove in the back garden. However inside it’s rather different, sporting a funky bar lit in neon colours and a basement venue, Le Box, which stages live music events and party nights. As such, it’s pretty multi-functional. Come after work for tapas and a cocktail on the leafy outdoor terrace, visit on weekends for a copious buffet-style brunch, or head to Le Box to catch anything from French chanson to improv nights and local rock bands.
