City Pub opened its doors in 2018 on the Aarbergergasse in Bern. It is a long-term pop-up, which is expected to last until 2021.
In its cosy atmosphere you can drink beer, order delicious cocktails and eat hot food. This sounds like nothing special at first, but what makes this bar truly unique is the location. A cinema hall that is no longer in use has been converted into a bar landscape with lots of seating, a stage and a disco ball. You can either have a seat at the bar or on the wooden benches and there is also a DJ to keep up the party mood.
The atmosphere in City Pub is merry and laid-back, like the cocktails. They contain no more than four ingredients. People here just want to have a great evening in a simple, personal environment. Fun fact: you can still order popcorn.
I like City Pub because it is straightforward and easy. The location gives it that certain something. When I’m there, I feel a bit like in “The Thief Lord”.
There are also concerts, quiz nights or record release parties to experience. For more information visit their website or Facebook page.
