Zurich (EN) : Extrablatt: Rooftop Day Zurich

 
 
Hey Ronster
 

Hey Ronster

 

The long wait is over. Tomorrow we push the big red button and it’s all systems go for Rooftop Day 2019. But before we climb onto the rooftops and storm the gardens and yards of the city there are a few things that i just have to mention.

 

Firstly, A massive thank you to all of the people who have participated and made Rooftop Day possible. You are the very best. And of course i need to give a massive shout out to Beck's and Aperol, our drinks sponsors for this year.

 

Secondly, please remember that many of the events are organised by private individuals and that they are opening their private property for you. Organisers of the events decide when the venue is full or it’s time to end and their decisions should be respected.

 

Finally: Like last year there is a map for smartphone and one for printing. As always, you can upload any photos on our Facebook page. If Instagram is your thing then i’m looking forward to seeing your pictures with the hashtag #rooftopday.

 

Okay, here we go. See you up, down, in the front, out the back or wherever….it’s going to be huge.


Give my love to the city

Paper & Water

 

Let’s kick off by being creative. Between 10am and 12pm the garden of Ausstellungsstrasse 25 will host a creative brunch where you can potter about, make stuff with your hands and generally exercise those creative muscles. Once your creative energy is spent there is food from the grill and chatting, drinking and dancing until sundown. As this event takes some organising please register if you wish to attend.

 
 
 

Saturday 10.00 - 20.00 Ausstellungsstrasse 25

Cacao Ceremony in Kreis 8

 

Have you ever been to a Cacao ceremony? No? Me neither, so i can only give you a vague description of what will be taking place at Mainaustrasse 53 tomorrow. Shaman Nic will guide you through the whole procedure and you can let the positive and aphrodisiac energy of the cocoa bean affect you. As there are only so many cocoa beans to go round please register for this event.

Tatar Workshop in the Hiltl Academy
 

Tatar Workshop in the Hiltl Academy

 

I have long wanted to know the secret recipe of Hiltl tatar so this event is a bit of a dream come true for me. If you feel the same then don’t miss the workshop tomorrow on the 5th floor of Sihlstrasse 24. Not only will you learn everything about the dish but you can prepare it yourself and devour it immediately. Any more good news? Yes there is, it’s free to attend.

 
 
 

Saturday 12.00 - 15.00 Sihlstrasse 24

 
 
 
 
The Roof-ís on fire
 

The Roof-ís on fire

 

When Tanzwerk 101 throws a party i expect there to be great music and whirlwind dance moves. At least that was the way it was two years ago and i fully expect them to go one better on their rooftop tomorrow. But if the prospect of cutting some shapes fills you with dread and you don’t feel you will sizzle on the dance floor then there is a bar and grill where you can engage in a culinary type of sizzling.

 
 
 

Saturday 12.00 - 22.00 Pfingstweidstrasse 101

What The Heck kind of a Rooftop is that?

 

For Rooftop Day 2019 one of Zurich’s finest underground DJ’s, Luke DM, is hosting a daytime rave. As well as five DJanes and DJ’s from Zurich Lausanne, Lugano and Milan will be representing on the turntables. Since space on the dance floor is limited it’s probably a good idea to sign up now.

 
 
 

Saturday 12.00 - 22.00 Stauffacherstrasse 157

 
 
 
 
Grande Riapertura

Something special and exclusive awaits you at Seebahnstrasse 115 tomorrow.

Sparty
 

Sparty

 

While sweating bodies scrabble for a small segment of real estate at the Unteren Letten you can enjoy a fresh breeze and gaze haughtily down, like Zeus sitting atop Mount Olympus. Local DJs Fiat Bux, Basil Bastard and Aaron Khaleian, Cyrill, H.R. Digger, Fabio Siverino and rACIDentovic will be on duty on the decks. Admission is only possible on the guest list though. If you get an answer you're in, if not you can dance at another party.

On this veranda in Seebach you get exactly 50% party and 50% relaxation. On one half of the terrace lovers of electronic music can meet and dance to wild sets.

Charles Le Cosmopolitain
 

Charles Le Cosmopolitain

 

The raffish and debonair Charles has taken part in every Rooftop Day so far so it makes perfect sense that he is taking part in the fifth edition. After entering through the courtyard you arrive at his secluded, leafy terrace where you can expect music, drinks and a view of the alps. Charles will also be glad to show off his cosmopolitan side and will converse with you in German, English, French and Portuguese.

Watt, Volt & Ampere
 

Watt, Volt & Ampere

 

Rooftop Day at Kraftwerk is going to be as electrifying as the title suggests. A DJ on the roof will be keeping the music current and bars in the garden will make resistance futile and you won’t want to go Ohm. Make a short circuit of the venue and then grab a drink, make yourself comfortable on a deck chair, and get them sunglasses on.

 
 
 

Saturday 14.00 - 22.00 Selnaustrasse 25

 
 
 
 
Mikks Rooftop Day

La Sause 5.0
 

La Sause 5.0

 

A rooftop day without «La Sause»? Preposterous. Not just because the party takes place in the airspace above Wiedikon for the fifth time but because it has almost achieved cult status and attracts so many regulars. Get there early if you want to check out the DJ sets.

 
 
 

Saturday 14.30 - 22.00 Bremgartnerstrasse 74

 
 
 
 
Audiodelikt @ Rooftop Day
 

Audiodelikt @ Rooftop Day

 

At the moment Audiodelikt are on their “Beer-Body-Badi” tour, singing their brand of Swiss-German pop, but they are taking a day off their busy schedule just for Rooftop Day. The band will play an intimate concert in the garden of Richard-Wagner-Strasse 11. Beer is a certainty and how much flesh we see…well, let’s see what happens.

 
 
 

Saturday 15.00 - 16.00 Richard-Wagner-Strasse 11

 
 
 
 
Bottoms up!
 

Bottoms up!

 

Normally, the Trainspotting sauna in the 25hours Hotels Langstrasse is only available to hotel guests. Normally. Once again, they make a special exception for Rooftop Day and invite you to hit their rooftop and dance until your feet are sore whilst making meticulous notes about all of the trains that pass by.

 
 
 

Saturday 16.00 - 21.00 Langstrasse 150

 
 
 
 
Mezze over the Patumbahpark
 

Mezze over the Patumbahpark

 

If chilling out suits you more than going bananas to EDM then you’re in good hands at the Hammam Basar + Salon. Overlooking the Patumbahpark, you can sit on the veranda, chomp mezze and sample homemade drinks such as rose prosecco or lavender lemonade. Still not feeling calm and zen like? They will offer you a relaxing foot bath from CHF 20.

Right next to the Ottikerstrasse tram stop you’ll find the new pop-up rooftop, «.FRANKs». Normally they film content for Balcony TV or throw private parties but tomorrow is your lucky day. You too can climb up there. What should you expect? Art, music and dance. If you want to head over, send a WhatsApp message with «.FRANKs Rooftop Day», your name and the number of people to +49 173 5782967. If you get an answer you're in, if not visit another event.

Frau Gerolds Rooftop Party
 

Frau Gerolds Rooftop Party

 

Do i really need to tell you where Frau Gerold’s Garden is? Come on Ronster, you know where it is. What you do need to know is the grill will be hot, the drinks will be cold and you will be able to dance amongst the flowers and plants as the Turntable Babes provide the music. There is also ample train spotting opportunities as the sun sets.

 
 
 

Saturday 16.30 - 22.00 Geroldsstrasse 23

 
 
 
 
RÖ6
 

RÖ6

 

As several new tenants recently moved in, Röntgenstrasse 6 has been party central for the last month. These guys are battle hardened and ready to keep the party going for Rooftop Day. Drink, dance and relax on their expansive roof terrace. «When one party ends, another begins», is more of a way of life than a saying at RÖ6.

 
 
 

Saturday 17.00 - 22.00 Röntgenstrasse 6

 
 
 
 
Rooftopless Party
 

Rooftopless Party

 
Don’t worry, despite of the revealing title you are also welcome on this terrace with a top. Because this is all about cooking together and chilling out and, let’s face it, how are you going to do that with my pecs in the frame? Bring some food if you want to be grill-master for a few minutes and for dessert there’s ice cream and waffles. Please sign if you want to attend though.
 
 
 

Saturday 17.00 - 22.00 St. Jakobstrasse 59

Züri Indie Festival

 

I’m really delighted to see six indie party series, (Indie Rock, Perlachella, Indie Hotel, Trashlimo, H.S. Thompson and Zeitgeist) teaming up for Rooftop Day on the rooftop of Exil. If you are hungry then street food stands in Exil will provide the food. After 10pm the dancing will continue in the club until the wee, small hours.

Book launch & Open Air Cinema at the Merkurgarten

 

We started with culture and it seems fitting to end with culture. Seeburgpark, provides the backdrop for art historian Michael Hiltbrunner to present his new book, DJ Try Luv to play a special live set and after this a screening of the documentary, «Thank You For The Rain». If all of that makes you hungry there will be fresh antipasti, flatbread from the pizza oven, drinks from the bar and a grill of you want to bring something to cook. Admission for the evening is free but a collection will take place to cover expenses.

 
 
 

Saturday 18.00 - 22.00 Seeburgpark
