Join us for an after-work drink with your colleagues and maybe dinner too. We've got a great menu to choose from and seating capacity for 70-80 guests.


The Bistro

Right in the heart of Bern, near the Parlament and with easy access to the station, The Bistro is a convenient and delicious option for holding a business lunch or dinner. We offer fast service in tasteful surroundings, wine by the glass, as well as Wi-fi access and multi-lingual staff.

The Bistro's extensive seating capacity (40-50 guests) also makes it ideal for hosting company events or special occasions. Please contact us for details. 


The Cheminée Stübli

This recently renovated, cosy dining area, featuring a traditional log fire, is a wonderfully romantic setting for a candlelight meal for two. It is also a more formal option for that important business dinner.  You can reserve the whole space (seating capacity of 25-30) or just a few tables. Choose from our selection of special menus or have one tailored to your requirements, for that perfect occasion.

Please contact us for details.
