Cranberry - since '97

In Autumn 1997 Cranberry Bar was born. The initial 3 owners Jvan, Chris and Erik are still major shareholder of the company. The bar operation is managed by a loyal, skilled crew with a long lasting experience. With its reputation for fabulous cocktails and great events, Cranberry has become an internationally well known hotspot in the Gay & Friends scene in Zurich.

Regular Refurbishments

Cranberry Bar Refurbishment

The results are: more space, less narrow in front of the bar, more private space in the upper floor bar, refreshed color design and more. What remains, as usual, is the friendly crew, the good cocktails and the great ambiance.

Campari Room

Since 2008, the Campari Room bar has been located on the upper floor. The opening hours on Friday and Saturday are 8 pm until the bar closes. Enjoy relaxed evenings in good company with Campari drinks mixed by our champion Swiss Bartender of the Year (2010) and special parties with our resident DJs Glitzerhaus.
