From the outside, this place looks inconspicuous, but from all the evenings I’ve spent there, I can tell you that it’s always a lot of fun to hang out in Dragon Bar (or is it officially called Drachenbar? Still haven’t figured out that, lol — both names are on the windows)! Much more than one might expect!
Dragon Bar is only a small place in a not-super-special part of town, there are just 4 tables, a long bench where you can sit with your back to the shop window, and, obviously, the counter itself. But the mix of people and a super friendly host as well as a funny bartender have always made my nights there memorable. You can get fancy drinks or just a bottled beer and unlike many other places in Bern, here you always get complimentary salted snacks like peanuts or pretzel sticks.
The decoration in Dragon Bar is obviously dedicated to dragons, and well… let’s say it’s not too exquisite ^^ There’s a TV that’s on auto-play YouTube, but you are welcome to choose your music. The regular customers prefer something between Whitney Houston, Toto’s Africa and local rock songs, so be respectful and don’t overburden them with your latest favourite tunes, stick to the old school karaoke-like vibe and you’ll be sure to make some great new friends off the beaten tourist tracks! Among my friends, Dragon Bar is definitely an insider tip for funny cheesy nights!
