An elevator on the chic Rue du Rhône whisks you to the top floor where a warm welcome gets your evening started. Looking to relax after work, or coming in for an early dinner?

Arthur’s Rivegauche

A place at which to see and be seen, Arthur's Rivegauche is a lounge, bar and restaurant in one sexy location. Savour dinner or gourmet snacks until 1.30am, just long enough for you to fuel up and enjoy live DJ music every evening until two in the morning. Arthur's is the right balance between trendy and sophisticated, hip and elegant. While classics like Mojitos, Bellinis and Moët & Chandon Champagne are great, it's the barman's specials that keep revellers coming back for more.

Java Club

Looking to dance the night away in cool sophistication? Grand Hotel Kempinski's Java Club has been welcoming the international jetset since the day it opened. Expect nothing less than a good night out here, as you would in New York, Hong Kong or Rio de Janeiro. Three bars, a VIP area and an elegant setting provide plenty of room for everyone to get a good view of the club, while enjoying music and drinks until the early hours.

Brassiere des Halles

Located on an island in the middle of the Rhône River, Brassiere des Halles boasts beautiful views of the surrounding city. This restaurant and bar combination serves up some of Geneva's best traditional cocktails. Brassiere des Halles is out of the city center, in a much more relaxed and low-key part of Geneva. Since its more of a social bar scene rather than a club, Brassiere des Halles is perfect for an after-work aperitif or a post-dinner nightcap.
