It's a dive.. it's a real dive.. It changes name every year or two... it always tries to become a respectable disco... and it always fails. The crowd is very eclectic: youngsters who go there for dancing, prostitutes that go there looking for business, desperate men who go there trying to get laid - and it makes no difference to them if it comes for free (from one of the youngsters - but it's unlikely) and if they have to pay (this is more likely). The music si nothing to write home about, but last time we went they played a bit of everything. Really, there's no obvious reason to go there - and yet - sometimes - people do. Let's say this disco is an interesting place for people watching. Entrance, by swiss stardard, is cheap: 10 francs.
Dress Code: i really doubt there's one. if you're a woman no slinky dresses please, in case you're mistaken for a hooker. cover up, cover up...
Murrayfield pub... when you're young and alternative it's the place to go... a real institution: loud alternative music (often live) and cool people. As you get older the crowd looses its appeal - so what drives u there is one of the best guinness pints in the area and the occasional irish poetry reading.
The only way to describe the general atmosphere is rowdy... and it gets rowdier at closing time: when they play the last tune (the wild rover) expect people to get really wild. Dancing on tables is allowed and encouraged.
One word of warning: the local police has a sour tooth about this place - there's always police checks: do not have any drugs onu. anywhere else u'll likely get away with it, here no way.
Dress Code: anything - dressed might help, but i doubt it's strictly necessary. Grunge or heavy metals clothes will help u fit in - but no one really cares about what you're wearning.
In Chiasso there are really few pubs opened by night.
By the way there are many bars opened only during the day.
In this pic one of the few Chiasso pubs, The Andy Pub located in Via Bossi.
