“Just what we were looking for as tourists”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

So a moi and a bunch of my friends took a trip to Europe and landed in Switzerland for 3 days. Grindelwald wasn't even on our list but the 2 of us got super excited due to the Harry Potter reference. We simply HAD to go there, After clicking a bajillion snaps we were looking around for some nice bar or a cafe to unwind in but couldn't find any. Just then we spotted this bar. Run by Alex (one of the cutest and the friendliest bartenders) we had a ball of a time. Playing Jenga, throwing darts, giving him a peck on the cheek, singing songs, playing the guitar, getting drunk, having the Jagermeister bombs and trying the balance board (?). Imagine 5 tipsy Indians singing songs in Hindi. It was easily the best evenings of our entire trip. We did manage to nick a few coasters and the Jagermeister miniature bottles (empty of course) after taking Alex's permission.

Thank you Alex for an excellent time. I am definitely recommending hitting your bar to everyone I know who decides to foray into Switzerland..

“Good music, good drinks”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I wanted to put good but trip adviser only give you the option for average or very good!!!
Good bar where the young things go. I felt a bit out of place but the drinks and music were good. There is an outside area to sit and watch the traffic which was wonderful and another out the back where they show home movies for a small fee.

“Amazing Genuine Local Bar”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Fantastic bar and I would highly recommend it to travelers wanting a fun relaxed time. It is a locals bar but everyone inside was friendly. I guarantee you a few fun memories and spectacles at that! The owner bartender is top shelf. I accidently left my coat there and we had to get an early start in the morning. He met us at the bar early to open it up so I would retrieve it.

“Very chill and young place”

Try the "sour thong" shot and play some Jenga game there... We really had a lot of fun! The place also has a smoking room!

“Very friendly, a welcome place when we were in a jam”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We found ourselves in Grendelwald (a beautiful place) in desparate need of a place to use the internet. They couldn't have been more helpful, and allowed us to sit the afternoon on the basis of a single hot chocolate. The resident cat came by, and, over the afternoon, the place filled up to capacity with cheerful folks. Amazing view. I recommend this place heartily.
