As you would expect from one of the city’s more hipster-filled areas, the Kreis 3 – Zurich’s 3rd district – boasts multiple great craft cocktail bars. However this one does stand out as one of the best.
With its stylish shabby-chic vintage decor, its talented barkeepers and its broad number of originally created drinks, it has found its place in the hearts of many cocktail lovers hearts who’ve been lucky enough to stumble across its doorstep.
The bar itself – quite an eye-catcher due to the cage-like contraption overhead with bottles hanging down from it – is of course where the magic happens. Feel like a little warming up? Then order the spicy Hot Russian with its burning passion fruit floating on top. Are you in need of some creativity? Why not try the Sir Mary – named after the creative agency around the corner – and see if it can inspire you too? Or just ask the bar keeper to mix you something special just for you.
Most of all relax and enjoy. And be ready to wait – making cocktails with love for detail takes time and with a place this popular and crowded you’ll just have to be patient. After all, good things take time.
