Truth needs to be said, the expectations of Zurich weren’t really high. I (Hunter Niels) expected a very expensive, cold and grey city. After a stop over of one night, it is still difficult to make any conclusions, but I did had an amazing night, and bumped into some very trendy places. First one I would like to share with you is Nietturmbar. Nietturmbar is located in the Schiffbau, a former ship doc. The building is in a new and modern area of the city Zurich. In this building is a theater, restaurant La Salle, a jazz club and on the upper floor is the Nietturmbar. You take the elevator up, and you arrive in a whole new world. Behind the raw walls is a very elegant cocktail bar, which overlooks this new and trendy area of Zurich. The cocktails they serve are mainly the classics. The bar is spread over two floors, my preference was the upper floor since the view is better, and the cute guys were hanging out there. The crowd is a mix of young and trendy, and creative oldies. The small and low seats are very close to eachother, so you easily get in a conversation with the other guests. So I wouldn’t recommend this place for a date, but it’s the perfect location for a nice drinks with friends. The vibe is amazing, and it mades me think. Is Zurich the new Berlin?
