Cafés & Bars

Waisenhausplatz 30 – 3011 Bern
Situated in an old school building that now is a cultural center with ateliers, bars and a co-working space. It’s a really nice café and bar in the city center just two minutes from the main station. Later at night you can change to the Café-Bar Turnhalle which is in the same building but it usually stays open longer than the Lehrerzimmer.

Die Taube
Rathausgasse 50 – 3011 Bern
Good cocktails, nice location, friendly hosts. What more do you need to have a good time?

Kreissaal Bar
Brunngasshalde 63 – 3011 Bern
Probably the best place for a cocktail but also for just a good beer. It stays open late, closed during the day.

Theaterplatz 2 – 3011 Bern
Right across the Zytglogge tower. It’s the best place to grab a coffee in the morning or a pannini for lunch. They roast their own coffee beans there. Often quite crowded.

Zsa Zsa
Brunngasse 11 – 3011 Bern
This bar is tiny but really great. Just for drinks, no food. A good place for the last beer on your way back to the bed and breakfast.

Café Bar Parterre
Hallerstrasse 1 – 3012 Bern
It’s close to the university and you’ll meet a lot of students there. Very nice interior.

Caffè Bar Sattler
Mittelstrasse 15 – 3012 Bern
Pretty close to the Parterre. Good coffee, nice place and small snacks. Best gelateria right next door.

Zar Bar
Pestalozzistr. 9 – 3007 Bern
It’s quite new and I’ve never been there but my friends like it.

Kapitel Bollwerk
Bollwerk 41 – 3011 Bern
A nice bar for the hip crowd. Later at night it turns into a club with famous or local DJs. They don’t serve food anymore. But right next door there is the Crêperie La Chouette.
