Please recommend me the best bars with good beer (on tap)!

To enjoy the nice summer weather with a beer, Rob, a few of our favourite places with gardens or patios:

Piazza at Idaplatz is always a good choice as this charming bar and the whole square are full of nice Zurich people at nights, but still not too trendy. The garden behind Restaurant Reithalle is one of our favourites and they serve good local beer. The much smaller garden at Piccolo Giardino is very familiar and you might want to stay there forever. Für Dich, Mars Bar, Xenix or Volkshaus are other good options.

If you like it very down-to-earth, Bierhalle Wolf or Rheinfelder Bierhalle might be the places for you! To be honest, we have never been there, but they surely serve good beer.

By the way: people say, one of the best beers brewed in Zurich is Hirnibräu. The problem is, we don’t know where to buy it. But you could have it delivered somewhere. Other good local beers are Bier Paul and Turbinenbräu.



Where do you send me to enjoy a cold beer in that beautiful summer weather – in the center of Zurich?

That’s easy: we send you to Kleine Freiheit – an urban garden and bar in one, with a very relaxed atmosphere. Finally, the lovely little Weinbergpark on the way down from the University to the central station is used.

The friendly students behind the desk serve delicious things, we especially recommend the local beer or the oriental sandwich with falafel, tomatoes and garlic sauce in pita bread.

We can’t help but being reminded of Frau Gerolds Garten‘s ship containers and flower boxes and the same good vibes, so we name Kleine Freiheit the little brother of “her”.
Stop by to play some games, read a book, to have lunch or an afterwork beer!

Other options @Kreis 1 are the Rio Bar or the Grande.
