Though the name sounds like the title of a fairly dubious movie, don't let that put you off: this is actually one of Zurich's more glamorous nightspots.

Though the name sounds like the title of a fairly dubious movie, don’t let that put you off: this is actually one of Zurich’s more glamorous nightspots. Boasting a superb view out over the city, this chic lounge bar and club has a comprehensive drinks list that is particularly strong on champagne and serves decent bar food to boot. The interior has a contemporary urban feel, with soft, seductive lighting illuminating purple padded banquettes, low stools and tables (though there are bits of the place that are positively neon-lit, so choose a location that suits your mood, as the lounge and club have a fairly different vibe to them). Animal print sofas are perfect to pose on, well-made cocktail in hand, as you watch a crowd of attractive young partiers getting into the groove, or indeed get distracted by the giant video screens that adorn some of the walls. Or why not grab one of the smaller cocktail tables, and perch on one of the geometric-style stools near the bar while you sip your champagne? A host of regular and guest DJs keep the trendy crowd moving on the dance floor until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays with a range of tunes that offer something to suit everyone: R&B, hip hop, reggae, dancehall with some 90s classic house thrown in. On warm evenings head out to the roof terrace, a light and airy space that’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cool beer while making the most of a balmy evening, and is an in-demand location during the summer months.
