There is hardly a more history-steeped and sophisticated bar in Zurich: at Bellevue, guests enjoy drinks in an elegant atmosphere surrounded by art and artists.
The Kronenhalle Bar has barely changed since it first opened in 1924. And rightly so! The lighting fixtures on the bar counter were designed by Diego Giacometti himself and are just as much works of art as the paintings gracing the walls. The green Saffiano leather on the seats, the bronze feet of the stools and tables, and the dark mahogany paneling on the walls are original materials from the 1960s. The legendary parquet flooring from London County Hall also shows that the Kronenhalle has always attached great importance to style and high quality.
But what makes the Kronenhalle Bar equally as special as its unique interior are its loyal employees: the bartenders are dedicated to serving consistently superb drinks and always welcome guests with the same level of professional courtesy. First and foremost, chef de bar Christian Heiss, who even keeps a notebook containing his guests’ favorite cocktail recipes and special wishes.
