You’ll instantly fall in love with the the unique and quirky style of El Lokal. With a chaotic mix of nautical themes and Mexican kitsch deco hanging on the walls, there are always new things to discover each time you return. There’s even a giant skeleton hanging from the ceiling, looming over everyone’s heads. How beautifully bizarre…

Built on two floors with a gallery overlooking the action down below, the place has a nice open ambiance that doesn’t feel crammed even when full. If there isn’t a local band playing, the music is usually kept to a pleasant volume allowing for animated chit-chat and making the place an ideal starting point for a great night out.

And it gets even better in Summer. Because once the Swiss weather permits it – i.e. it’s not snowing anymore – people flock to El Local for the large and cheerful outside terrace facing the river. It’s a beautiful place to enjoy the warmer days in Zurich and an especially popular hangout for the after work crowd. So be there in time if you want to get a place in the sun to go with your beer.
