We love, love, love our fondue in Winter Time. When Lady Hamilton Pub introduced a Rooftop Fondue, we couldn’t wait to give it a try!
A 2 minute walk from Zurich HB and jetting passed the uber busy downstairs bar, we dashed by the beer drinkers to the VIP Rooftop Bar for white wine & fondue.
Weekends open until 4.30am, a sweet kirsch for dessert & cigar (32+ selection from their Humidor and table-stop hookahs) settle you in for the night…
Grab a group of friends & enjoy!
A traditional bar with 13 beers on tap, cocktails and tasty food on the menu, a DJ jammin and as the night crowd awakens, it gets busy (really busy!).
BUT with rooftop reservations, strap on your VIP bracelet and take the stairs up a 2nd flight to the intimate outdoor bar.
Oversized greenery and beige & brown patio furniture give it a summer vibe, but no mistaken it’s still winter as you can wrap yourself in a navy blue & red stripe blanket and stay warm via their sturdy wind shields.
A traditional mixed-cheese fondue served with bread, pickles & onions for CHF 28.50 / person.
If fondue just really isn’t your thing, there’s plenty of pub favorite foods like Irish stew, fish & chips, burgers and pizza from Sam’s American Pizza Land.
“All You Can Eat Chicken Wings” downstairs in the pub every Wednesday night for only CHF 15…wow! Now that’s franc savvy.
More of a beer & cocktail bar with not too extensive of a wine list, we were lucky to be sitting with the Bar Manager Walid who recommended the Valencia White Wine & a little kirsch to match the fondue.
Sticking to it’s true bar roots, there’s no hot tea on the menu and a short coffee list…go for the booze girls!
Why we Love It
Fun for tourists & big groups…a definite for a couples night out or birthday bash. We love they can mix & match the tables to fit your group so if you need a table for 20 or 6, it’s no problem.
If you’re really selfish, go ahead and reserve it all! The Rooftop Bar fits a maximum of 50 people. Oooh, did someone say 30th Birthday Party??!!
Zuri Girl Tips
Reservations are a MUST!
It’s is a rooftop and outdoors, but nestled in an alcove so think more intimate & exclusive than sightseeing & Zurich skyline views.
It’s a small area with smoking allowed set in a green oasis practically next to the Main Train Station.
