Planning a Date Night with your dream companion _ ahem, me!_ can be a challenge for those staying in Zürich for Business. Where to start? What are the hot spots in town, the best restaurants or hidden gems that this bubbling city has to offer?!
There's a place and a table with a prestigious view, for any situation in this town! Zurich offers you an individual mix of adventure and pleasure. With its unique diversity in entertainment, gastronomy and hotel industry, Zurich is the ideal place for meetings, congresses, and secret rendezvous pour deux!
Where to Go*
The proper way to get acquainted with me is in a nice restaurant with not only a beautifully cosy atmosphere but a decent bar equipped with a well-curated wine list and decadent cocktails.
- Clouds / Brasserie Lipp / Haute SA / George Bar&Grill - are the above town places for any special occasions.
- Maison Manesse / La Rôtisserie / Pavillon / Razzia - the crème de la crème a la suisse! A mix between fantasy and fusion, leading to the high-end kitchen in Zürich.
As a classic gentleman, you don't show up with empty hands. Take advantage of that meeting pause to discover the luxury mecca of Bahnhofstrasse. This elegant boulevard is home to some of the world’s leading brand names in fashion, such as Chanel, LV, Dior, Breguet, Cartier, Omega, Piaget, Mont Blanc, Hermès and so on!

- Gassmann -
An iconic department store that occupies a historic building on Bahnhofstrasse, a visit to Gassman is highly recommended for high-end fashion.
The brands available include leading lights of fashion like Burberry Prorsum, Donna Karen, Ralph Lauren, Aquascutum and Gucci.

This historic store has evolved with the times since its origins as a purveyor of fine silk fabrics. Designed in a minimalist style, the Grieder Zurich store is well suited to the magnificent Gothic building that houses it.
