The place that once housed horse-drawn carriages and luxury automobiles now serves as a bar.
In a highly exclusive location close to the Bahnhofstrasse, a venue has been created that is beyond compare: covering an area of 150 square meters (1,600 sq.ft), the former garage of the Hotel Widder houses a cheerful mix of old and worn-out items and eternally beautiful objects: sofas and armchairs from the Bähnli-Bar at The Dolder Grand and the bar at the Hotel Storchen, empty oil drums, a bar made from old pianos, numerous LP records, and posters. All this creates an ambiance that insiders would rather expect to find in Zurich’s trendy quarters than in the elegant inner city.
Originally intended as a temporary solution while the legendary Widder Bar was being renovated, the concept proved so successful that it was retained as a permanent club and bar. Now, parties are held here every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Only the drinks remind guests that the bar is actually part of a five-star hotel – in the Garage, too, they are of the same outstanding Widder quality.
