Housed in a lofty, 19th-century redbrick warehouse in Züri West, the avant-garde Schiffbau arts complex is at the forefront of local cultural life: it contains Moods, Zurich’s top jazz club; and the second stage for Schauspielhaus, the city’s best-known theater. Also here is the striking Nietturm bar and cigar lounge. Encased in a glass cube high up on the roof, the bar draws a stylish 30-something-and-up crowd for classic cocktails, especially on weekends.
