Mayday, AKA International Workers Day rolls around again and, at least in Zurich, we have a public holiday which means you don’t have to say no to that extra glass of wine or beer the night before. But lets not forget, this is a day to celebrate the workers contribution to society and with that in mind there is the annual 1.Mai Fest which takes place in the Kaserneareal on 1st of May and also on the following weekend.

Up the workers.

6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky
