The best open-air bars in Zurich

Many of Zurich's restaurants have pleasant outdoor seating areas and Zurich's inhabitants absolutely love to eat or have a drink under the open sky during the summer months. Most bars and restaurants we list below are solely open-air. That means they close when it’s raining. Many of the lake and river baths turn into lively bars in the evening (check out Primitivo and Enge lake pool, see Swimming and relaxing on the water's edge). For more outdoor dining suggestions, check the Lakeside restaurants category.
