Impolite waiters. The manager who was on shift needs to be retrained in good customer service. Excellent selection of Gin and other spirits ( although) No Bacardi. However very poor service. We will not recommend or visit again.

Like gin? So the Dante in Zurich is a place to go. A broad range of gin, a broader range of drinks. Have fun, it's worth.

Crowdy in the evening. Thats something for the people which want to have a GIN. In theory is a Zurich Gin Bar. Bar offers also nice interiors and the cozy basement (for the smokers)

Dante Bar on Zwinglistrasse visually leans on the simple and subtle beauty of art deco. Heavy parquet elements connect the long brass bar and the mint-anthracite checkered floor. In the background the soothing sound of Jazz and Soul fills the room. The Menu offers meticulously crafted classic and signature cocktails. With over 100 carefuly selected gins, Dante possibly has Switzerlands best collection of the juniper elixer. There are more reasons why Dante is well known past the Swiss borders.
