Zurich is Switzerland‘s largest city and is home to the largest number of dance clubs per capita in Europe. Many visitors migrate to the city expressly to dance and imbibe. Whether you’re dedicated to nightlife, or are traveling to the area for other reasons, it’s worth picking up a copy of 20 Minuten (this local publication contains the most authoritative and up-to-date arts and culture listings available) and investigating what’s happening on any given evening.
Some of the best clubs include Kaufleuten (easily Zurich’s most famous dance club), Club Indochine, Labor Bar (home to the city’s best gay nights), and Rohstofflager (which also presents live music events). Most of these and many other of the most popular establishments are located in Old Town along the banks of the Limmat River and in the city’s trendy western quarter.
