Voisins (French for: neighbors) is my favourite place in Plainpalais. Voisins is a cafe, restaurant, bar and co-working space at the same time. Since I have an office to go to everyday, I don’t go to Voisins for work but for the more pleasurable sides: drinks, food, meeting friends and (live!) music.
One thing I love about Voisins are the little snack items on their menu which go perfectly with a drink. The “dégustations” burgers (see picture) are amazingly delicious but also get me hungry for more. The homemade iced-tea and fruit smoothies are also great. If you are hungry for a big burger, I recommend the pulled pork burger – it is delicious.
The interior is both very modern but also warm. In the late afternoon my friends and I enjoy the after work ambiance created by the resident DJ and his cool beats. Voisins also invites local musicians that play music. It is a great place to go with a bigger group (but make a reservation for their big communal table).
