Every year in summer (normally end of July to end of August) there is a big outdoor movie happening in the centre of town.
It has a good atmosphere and you can see over the town with the mountains in the background.
If you want a good seat you will have to be there when it opens and reserve it yourself. Before the start of the movie you can eat dinner or enjoy some drinks at the bar.
Check the homepage for movie details and timetables. You can buy tickets over the internet with Starticket or buy them in one of the Orange Centers in town: Spitalgasse 14 or Kornhausplatz 12.
Tickets are normally close to Fr. 20.- (ice cream included)
Dress Code: Bring some warm clothes as there might be a cool wind blowing even if it it a nice summer night.

Berrrrrn --- a lovely place, quaint, rather "village people" feel haha - but WAIT till you enter the Casino and you feel like you stepped into Las Vegas.... nuninuni haha....
So here a few gambling tips for those who want to risk a mint or two ....
>Never split your 10s
>Always split your Aces and 8s, regardless of what card the dealer is showing
>Unless you are counting cards, never take insurance
>You should stand on a hard 13 through 16, but only if the card the dealer is showing is a 6 or lower. If the dealer’s showing card is a 7 through an Ace, you should hit.
>If the dealer is showing a 4, 5 or a 6, you should stand on a hard 12.
>If the dealer’s showing card is a 2 or a 3, or 7 and higher, you should hit a hard 12.
>You should continue to hit until you have at least 17 if the dealer’s up card is a 10.
>You should hit a soft 17 if the dealer’s up card is a 10
The intelligent player makes a series of predetermined bets rather than betting "all over the table"; be consistent in your betting system.
Place red or black bet with corresponding column bets to cover 26 numbers as follows: Black bet covers all eighteen black numbers - also bet Column 3 under #36 for eight (most) red numbers. Red bet covers all 18 red numbers: also bet Column 2 under #35 for eight (most) black numbers.
Rien ne vas plus
Dress Code: Formal - elegant
> no sneakers
> no jeans
> ladies - less flesh is more :D
Silo is a small Bar that is open from tuesday to saturday. From thursday to saturday it is crowded. You get a lot of alcahol for few money there! Mostly students above 20 meet there. You need a member card to enter the club but luckily the guard doesn't take that very serious!
Bierhübeli is a location that is open almost the whole week. Lots of concerts of international renowed artist take place there and on weekend there are always popular parties that are mostly visited by teenagers.
Like a lot of places in Bern, you will find the Drei Eidgenossen has a nickname - in this case, not especially flattering - "6 arschbacken" (6 butt cheeks)....and sit you can. Outside during the summer in the walkway, inside in winter. The 3 Eidgenossen isn't especially well known for food, but for conversation and drinks. Drinks in quantity, conversation in quality, music and a smoky, old city charm. Here is at least one place you won't sit alone for too long and for people watching, it just doesn't get better.
Dress Code: Don't bother with how you look, no one else will either!
Actually I don't know where real students go, but the International Students Club is a good bet. ISC is club/concert hall in one, with a good bar and reasonable prices. Bands like the Godfathers and Stone Temple Pilots have put on shows here in the past. ISC is split on three levels, with the bar on the ground floor, concerts/dance on the second and a lounge area on a balcony overlooking the bar. Despite of the big sound, the ISC is notorious for overcrowding and for sold out shows, so get there early and buy tickets ahead of time if you can. Concerts are always on Thursdays and disco on Friday and Saturday, DJ hang out sound on Sunday. Concerts usually start at 9pm and discos at 10. The crowd usually isn't too young but it does pull a good university crowd on weekends.

Dress Code: There is no dress code, but the ISC does occaisionally host theme nights but this is mentioned on the website if there is a dress requirement. I have heard of people not being allowed in wearing sneakers so it is probably advisable to wear other shoes!
This bar in the centre of bern offers big and strong drinks at reasonable prices. The "Long island ice tea" is CHF 15.-- and is in a huge 5dl glass, about 2dl of the drink are spirits....
Watch out you don't get drunk to fast!!!!
There are concerts in the bar on some days, see the webpage.
Dress Code: none
The Kornhaus cafe is a bright, lively spot with mostly a sparkly (for Bern) 20-35 year old crowd.... with a few old timers (like me) and a few children thrown in. Open from lunch through late (for Bern), its a great spot for a quick coffee or drink, or for spending hours people watching. Light dinners and desserts available. Very nice terrace for summer evenings.
Right across the way and down the stairs is the Kornhaus Keller. The atmosphere here is beautiful with recently renovated painted ceilings depicting harvests and other Korn (grain) - related themes. Strictly an evening sort of place, it varies from intimate and cosy to bustling and lively depending on the overall mood of the crowd at the moment.
Dress Code: Anything goes. People tend to be a bit more dressed both places than you generally see out in bern, but you'd feel as fine in jeans as you would in a suit or cocktail dress.
Looking for a little good music and a relaxed atmosphere? Then what you need is Mahogany Hall.
The Mahogany Hall is part of the musical history of Bern, established in 1968 with the Longstreet Jazzclub. At the start, there were Old-Time Jazz concerts, played by Mahogany's inhouse orchestra, though in time this was complemented by other regional jazz formations. By 1987 approximately 1'800 concerts had been played in the Mahogany Hall. Today, it is a meeting point for jazz, blues, folk and soul music lovers, for the famous and the as yet unknown names of the international and local music scene.
Dress Code: There isn't a dress code but try and remember that short trousers (on men) in the evening is not considered good manners.
there are several nightlife spots as : the perry bar, Wasserwerk, Gaskessel, Silo, Kornhaus, Dampfzentrale(good beer)...
You'll find these spots if you ask the tourist center at the train station
All these spots are bars or clubs which you can go on every weekend. Most of them have special weekends like latin weekend or hip hop or house etc...
Dress Code: You can wear what you want. Casual is the best choice...
