“Lake view”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

You are on a small island at the westend of the lake. A very attractive view on Geneva and a Swatch museum. You can enjoy a good ice-cream

“Have a corporate event to do?”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

This "space" is awesome... tall ceilings, loads of space. They can cater to anything. Really cool pieces of machinery lying around. Love the decor!

“a concert venue, in fact, but a great example of a reclaimed industrial building”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

the BFM as we call it here, is lovely from the outside and occupies a magnificent place on the Rhône. INside there are the old turbines, quite picturesque. It is perhaps only open on concert nights, but as it is in the center of town worth a trip to see the setting and the exterior. Try not to be put off by our black friends hanging around the neighborhood trying to sell you ... I said try...
