La Catrina – Zurich’s Indie music hub

When La Cartrina opened years ago as a Mexican themed bar only few people took notice. Soon, however, the management started directing their energy towards the alternative music scene and slowly transformed the place into one of the main hubs for indie culture in Zurich – a title it holds to the present day.

With live bands that play on a tiny stage (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) and good DJs who turn tables on the weekends (there’s even the occasional DJ battle) La Catrina is always a great place to spend the evening or even the entire night. But be prepared for dancing sardine-style since the bar’s popularity and its tiny size always leave it jam-packed.

Of course you can always catch some fresh air (or fill your lungs with smoke) in the outdoor seating area outside or just disappear downstairs where there’s a foosball table and an iPad jukebox for your own motivational music while kickin’. But don’t stay away too long – you wouldn’t want to miss your favorite songs being played up above…
