About two years ago, Chef Sommelier Aaron Jolley was looking for a new challenge. He launched his project Winyl Ist Eine Art – A London bar with a wine list inspired by live music and DJ sets.
With this concept, he appealed especially to the younger generation who are often less keen on learning about different origins of wine, but more interested in the consumption of beer, shots and gin and tonics. So that you can get a better idea of what Sommelier Aaron Jolley tried to achieve, we have broken it down for you below:
Prosecco is best enjoyed to pop music – similar to the sound made when the cork is popped off
A full-bodied Bordeaux wine pairs well with ‘’Soul’’ music
Pinot Noir – ‘’Smooth’’
Spicy wines – ‘’Reggae’’
Biodynamic unfiltered wines – ‘’Funk’’
Chablis wines – ‘’Classical’’
At the bar, you can order musical genres that fit accordingly with your drink and be inspired by multiple sensory stimuli. Music and wine are a perfect combination because music stimulates the auditory, while wine appeals to not only the taste but also to the smell and visual senses. There are two things in common: Finding a rare vinyl would a special moment for a seasoned DJ, like an exquisite wine would for a wine connoisseur.
Rooftop is our absolute favourite amongst the innovative Gastro concepts that are popping up around Zürich. A successful combination of great Pan-Asian inspired dishes, by far the most beautiful rooftop terrace in Zürich, and a seasoned cocktail culture to top it off. The trolley service is an original concept as well inspired from traditional Chinese restaurants.

Piracy has never been much of a vocation in Zurich. The lake is far too small and there is no treasure island. Or is that strictly true? While the lake is too small for an effective Long John Silver or Jack Sparrow, it does contain a

Whilst Züri Fäscht is a great event and amazing fun i am aware that many of you Ronsters maybe daunted by the prospect of sharing the city with 2.5 million people. But where to go? The areas around the lake are going to be
3. Balls Of Steel
It’s a classic French scene. A shady, tree lined town square where men in berets smoke Gauloise and play with their shiny silver balls. I’m talking of course about the game of pétanque. Now, i have never played but this

It is fun to cook good food and to eat that which you have cooked. Here the daunting part comes afterwards: the piles of dishes and utensils to be washed. To avoid the chore of washing up, one could go eat out. Here the challenge

3. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
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
The glamour of Polo. The horses, the champagne, the bicycles…hang on, the bicycles? This weekend, the Dolder Sports centre is hosting the European Hardcourt Bikepolo Championships and it looks a lot more fun and down to earth than its equestrian counterpart. The names of the wildcard teams are worth looking up alone. My personal favourite: Flowery Twats .
