These hosts are waiting for you in a Big Bar in the heart of Lausanne¹s hip and happening Le Flon area.

In summer there¹s a huge street terrace running the length of the building for great after work get-togethers. Inside, the wood-paneled snug with bar and fireplace is great for private functions. Every night there¹s a chance to see the unique Dueling Pianos (when two pianists battle it out to play requests on baby grands!),
Sandwiches, tea and Italian coffee available all day.

Dress Code: Not applicable...
Well assuming you've been out all night and have discovered Lausanne's nightlife, an other suprise may be awaiting you on your way home.
If suddenly, in the middle of the town you see eyes flashing at you or a shadow swiftly dissapearing inside a hedge, do not be alarmed. The town is filled with foxes.
You see them, and in down town, on summer nights when you sleep with the window open, you even hear them. Lausanne has become their new woodland...
Le XIIIeme siecle (the 13th century) is a nightclub in the Old Town, very near the Lausanne Cathedral, which ressembles a wine cellar. Upstairs the bar, on the 2nd floor tables and a place to sit and talk, and downstairs the dance floor where they play hits from all decades.
It is mostly a student hang-out place, and pretty much only locals.
PS: 18 is the official legal age to go out in Switzerland.
Dress Code: None
Bleu Lezard consists of two floors: the hip local bar and restaurant at the street level and the club below. Both are free of charge, visited by an eclectic local crowd and mostly happening on the weekends.
A prefect bar to start the night before heading to a club or simply downstairs.
Dress Code: None
MAD has the art of partying down to a science. They book cool acts like the Jim Rose Circus (think: people who swallow broken lightbulbs), Les Rita Mitsouko (French duo with former porno star as lead singer). Enjoy dance, trance, and theme nights. Show up after midnight when the real fun begins.
Pricing is a bit tricky: they charge 25 or 30 francs per night to get in, hoping you'll find that expensive and fork over 250 francs for a yearly pass. The pass guarantees you and two friends free entry.
Dress Code: Hip

What's better than a swiss cheese fondue and some great Valais wine? Well, a Valais fondue with tomatoes, a raclette with grison (beef jerky), pickle, aioli on boiled potatoes.
Try some apricot liquor that Yves's sister sells just up the slope off Sion. Tell them it's Pierre, Martin's brother friend of Yves and Pascal that is sending you.
