You can accompany your chosen drink with food from menus with reasonable prices and a wide choice. The Bar is famous for its extensive selection of whiskies and ports, but its range of spirits is all-encompassing. If you would like to learn more about local wines, this is a good place to start, because staff are friendly and helpful, ever ready to provide suggestions on the best labels. Likewise the kitchen staff can accommodate requests for changes in menu recipes according to personal tastes. Service is quick and attentive.
The venue is quiet enough to be suitable for informal business meetings during the day, facilitated by the free wi-fi. The ambience is spotless, cosy and very colourful.
Highlights on the menu include the Club Sandwich, one of the best of its type, served with French fries; a wonderful Caesar’s Salad with sliced chicken; and a complete freshly-prepared sushi menu. Heartier dishes include the local classic Zurich-style sliced veal with rösti, and Wiener Schnitzel with French fries and vegetables.
If you’re in a hurry at lunchtime, the Schweizerhof Quick-Lunch is the perfect solution, with a single dish prepared to order and served within 15 minutes, changing every day (check the website). Examples include Spätzli au gratin with mushrooms accompanied by vegetables and salad, and Skewer of shrimps on a bed of Asian rice.
On some days, the Schweizerhof Bar is the venue for splendid theme evenings, such as the regular Balboa Swing Dancing Night, and jazz concerts. We recommend taking a look at the hotel website to check the programme before setting off for Zurich.
Schweizerhof Bar is open from Monday to Saturday, 10.45am to midnight, and on Sunday from 5pm to midnight.
