Geneva is full of cultural depth as well as great cocktail bars and wine bars. One of its many fascinating features is the historic Old Town – and what better way to spend an evening than having a drink while surrounded by its ancient buildings? These are its coolest bars.
Situated right in the heart of the Old Town in the historic little buzzing square of the Place du Bourg-de-Four, dating back at least to the 5th century, La Clémence is ideally located. It always has a vibrant, local atmosphere, being frequented by students and businessmen alike, and its terrace is a great place for people-watching. Enjoy a cold beer or a sophisticated cocktail here and perhaps a grilled sandwich to complement the tipple.
