Widder Bar: A legendary cocktail Bar in Zurich Old Town!

A library to imbibe!

If the Widder Bar could speak, what stories it would tell! It would mention the sheer amazement of visitors when they first see the legendary Library of Spirits with more than 1,000 bottles behind the bar. And certainly talk fondly of our pioneering Bar Manager Dirk Hany, who has been known to concoct vodka cocktails with mustard and cucumber. And recount tales of the sell-out nights in spring and autumn when acclaimed jazz musicians from around the world gather in the Widder Bar for a festival on an intimate scale.
