The Oliver Twist Pickwick Pub: Very popular English style pub

The Oliver Twist Pub is one of the more popular pubs in Zurich. It was packed during my visit (a Friday night). Overall I liked the feel this place because it was in an older building which helped with the atmosphere. There was live music here and surprisingly the band was actually good. This is probably because the Oliver Twist is part of a chain and they can afford to attract decent bands. I am pretty sure I saw these guys in Canada.

Paddy Reilly's Pub: My Favourite of Zurich's Many Irish Pubs

Zurich is saturated with Irish Pubs so at least there are plenty of places to find a Harp. Out of the lot, I think the best pub I visited in Zurich was Paddy Reilly's. You might ask why and that is simply because it reminded me so much of a pub I frequently visit in Toronto.
The bar here is quite large. The beers at the time of my visit were not expensive by Swiss standards and they a large variety. There are several massive flat screen TV's where you can watch sports which I was I found the place so welcoming. Finally there is a patio which was not all that common in Zurich. This pub seemed to very popular with ex-pats from across the globe.

Plaz(d)a Bar: Plaza Club

We, a few VTers, recently visited the Plaz(d)a Bar on a weekday evening around 11 pm. When we were there it was very pleasant and roomy, but mind you, on weekends it's packed. Note the decorations (lamps, walls) while you are there.

In the same building which used to be a couple of cinemas until not too long ago, there is now a club which features various events and concerts. Check their website for more information.

Cinema: Enjoy a film!

Zurich has lots of cinemas. You will find multplex cinemas or studio cinemas. Going to the cinema is very popular and in most cinemas the films are shown in the original language with German and French subtitles. In the programm it will say E/d which means the film is in English with German subtitles. If it says Ov/d then it's in the original language like Chinese, Russian or whatever with German subtitles.

On Mondays cinemas are cheaper with a fixed price of CHF 12.00 (2007).

Si o No Bar: Just a little bar

A small bar in district 4. Not the average very cool downtown Switzerland athmosphere, just very laid back, cosy and intimate. A nice place to spend an evening with friends, or to drink your cappucino in the afternoon and read a paper.

Dress Code Whatever you like

Indochine: Zurich Clubbing

This place was a refreshing departure from the normally uptight atmosphere in Zurich. Good music and people, but drinks are crazy expensive (this is switzerland, after all!)
I also have it on good word that OXA is a great place to party in Zurich, alas, I had to leave before I could check it out. Maybe next time. Friday nights are a bit younger, Saturdays 25-35 year olds.

Dress Code Guys, make sure you bring a girl unless you've made a career out of talking your way past tough doormen. They were tough, but fair.

General nightlife: Bar

When I arrived Davos, it was in the night. Most people spend their night in Bars across the town that is full of hotels. The weather is so cold in this region at this particular time of my visit that most people rather sit around bars and socialise.

Also because of the event that was on going at this time, the world economic forum; most places were fully booked and there was not much fast night life as one would have expected.
