2 Rooftop bars I recently tried in Zurich…and they’re worth it! // 2 rooftop bars che valgono la pena a Zurigo!

It’s been a while I know, but with this changing weather, cold and even snowy a few weeks ago to make you unwell and then such beautiful sunny days that really push you to enjoy life outside in the open air, and of course a bunch of other stuff… well time flies!

As what it concerns going out, I’ve done a bit of this lately, I have two rooftop bars to suggest in Zurich. Yes, rooftop bars are a thing also in Zurich and I’d say a reasonably big thing🙂

If you want a classy, trendy place with an indoor and outdoor, to enjoy a great drink either with or without alcohol, do a bit of people watching (if you are into that kind of things), just relax, chill out, especially when the sun is out to finish well the day, watching the sunset with a view on the city. And also have the option to dine or listen to some live music on some days, well “George” is the place for you! In the city centre, next to Sihlstrasse, so very conveniently located.

Unfortunately I was so much enjoying the atmosphere and my “aperitivo”, followed by a fun dinner, that I forgot to take any photos, but here’s the website. And then at least there’s a bit of suspense and curiosity to fulfill!😉 Better make a reservation for dinner, at least!

The second one is “Modissa Restaurant” right on Bahnhofstrasse, not far from the HB train station and also quite busy, so you better be early, like 5.30ish pm or otherwise reserve a table. Here everybody is planning, everybody reserves their table. The peculiar thing is that it’s part of a clothing shop and you need to go into the shop to get access to the rooftop, at least meanwhile the shop is open. The terrasse is very pleasant, especially on a sunny day, if you find a spot, otherwise you can also stay inside. Their hausgemachter iced tea (housemade iced tea) was a bit surprising and let’s say interesting…it was blue, but I saw a lot of interesting cocktails coming out of the bar.  You can also order something to nibble on, such as an aperitivo plate, dumplings or chinese rolls…for sure there’ something to feed your appetite!🙂

Well, enjoy Zurich!

———- // ———-

E’ passato un po’ di tempo dall’ultimo post, ma con questo tempo che cambia continuamente, quando fa’ freddo e nevica come qualche settimana fa’ e ti fa’ ammalare, quando invece c’e’ il sole che non riesci assolutamente a stare in casa, i ponti in giro per la Svizzera o altrove, studiare tedesco, lavoro, ecc… beh ecco perche’ non ho avuto tempo di scrivere!

Ma torno proponenedovi 2 rooftop bar da non perdere, soprattutto ora che inizia (a parte i prossimi giorni) la bella stagione e di occasioni ce ne saranno!

Il primo e’ “George“: molto classy, trendy, ben arredato, con vista su entrambi i lati del locale, ben frequentato, dove si beve bene, anche gli analcolici, dove ti sembra di stare in un’oasi di pace, in vacanza, soprattutto dopo una giornata di sole quando puoi goderti il tramonto! Un posto dove si puo’ anche cenare, ma dove si deve prenotare anche un mercoledi’ sera. La gente qui, soprattutto quando fa’ bello, esce tutte le serate anche perche’ non si sa’ mai quanto durera’ il bel tempo! Si puo’ fare people watching”, per chi e’ interessato al tema, o semplicemente godersi un drink o una cena con amici. E’ centrale, vicino al fiume, Silhstrasse, sopra il casino’ e facilmente raggiungibile. Mi sono lasciata talmente coinvolgere dall’atmosfera rilassata, vacanziera e dalla serata super divertente che ahime’ non ho alcuna foto, ma almeno vi ho forse un po’  incuriosito e comunque potrete sbirciare il sito!

Il secondo invece e’ il “Modissa Restaurant” che si trova al 6* piano di un palazzo dove su strada si trova il negozio di vestiti Modissa e dal quale dovrete passare per accedere al rooftop, almeno mentre il negozio e’ aperto. si trova su Bahnhofstrasse, non lontano dalla stazione centrale, quindi molto comodo e con una parte interna ed esterna, super carina in una giornata di sole, ma dove e’ anche difficilissimo trovare posto. Quindi o andate molto presto, verso le 17:30 e gia’ sara’ difficile o vi converra’ prenotare. Qui tutti prenotano, pianificano e per questo tutto va’ liscio…certo comporta un po’ di lavoro di preparazione in piu’…ma ci si abitua o si puo’ comunque sfidare la fortuna😉 I cocktail sembrano tutti interessanti, il te’ freddo fatto in casa e’ sicuramente e decisamente interessante…e’ blu! De gustibus… ahah

Comunque gia’ 2 opzioni per la bella stagione a Zurigo! Ovviamente quando passera’ sta pioggia…ma il tempo per riflettere e’ sempre utile. Io comunque sono in infradito ancora😉
