Need a beer? Why not have it at Jules Verne

View from Jules Verne Panorama Bar

We had some visitors over the long weekend, and on Saturday since the weather was beautiful and the views to the Alps were unhindered, Jace recommended we go for a drink at Jules Verne Panorama bar just off Bahnhofstrasse. At first I was hesitant, it was a sunny, warm day - why not have it outside at a pub... but after I saw the view from up here, I was sold. This is really an amazing spot.

Another view... it is a 'panorama bar' after all!

Here is the bar from the outside. I thought that the drinks would be super expensive here due to the view, but they are really no more expensive than any other nice bar in Zurich... I had a panache for CHF 6. That is really pretty standard - and the view was thrown in for free. I really recommend you go for a drink next time someone special is in town. Great spot, Jace! Now how many gin and tonics did you have to drink here to realize that? ;)

I love the view from this place, but made the mistake of ordering a mixed drink - it was on the small side (naturally) - next time I'll stick with a beer.
