Most city residents head home after work in a city that's not noted for its raucous nightlife. But the bar that attracts more business than any other, Le Papillon, is in the Hotel Chlosterhof, Oehningerstrasse 2 (tel. 052/742-42-42). It opens every night at 6pm and offers lots of varnished paneling, a woodsy kind of coziness, and views of the river. They will happily stay open until the last customer leaves.
