Well, for a rather calvinist Geneva, this is an excellent hangout even though the stuff served by the various bars catering to the square isn't much special - the atmosphere is usually excellent here for a drink or two.

The main interesting point at this place was the bell (or organ?) sounds coming from somewhere that I could not understand, which were star wars, indiana jones theme etc. After Italian squares with fountains and sculptures this will be very disappointing for you.

Great place to go for an early evening drink, if you are not put off by being surrounded by smokers. The square was packed with people having finished work and there was a great buzz about the place. Drinks seemed to be very reasonably priced...More

Nice place to sit for an (expensive!) coffee or beer, as near to the heart of the old town as Geneva has such a thing!

Sit down at one of the cafes on the square and enjoy the atmosphere. This is a good stop on a tour of the old city.
