Nightlife between the lakes is brimming over with bars, dining, and music as the inhabitants of Swiss tourist central let go after an active day of skiing, hiking, biking, or rafting.

The Mercure Hotel Interlaken
is the home of two popular restaurants: Stubli and Wintergarten, both of which are open until 9:30.  The Muh Bar is open until one while Mercure’s musical entertainment stays strong until two.

The Brasserie 17
hosts both residents and visitors into the wee hours, serving up ales and cocktails for customers shooting at dart boards or boozing it up with some table football.  Serving acclaimed ribs and chicken wings and organizing live Thursday night concerts in the fall, winter, and spring, Brasserie 17 is the place to take off your ski cap and let your hair down.

And for those who demand still more adventure, risk it all at the Casino Kursaal Interlaken, the city’s gambling hotspot.
