Cranberry Bar - almost 20 years old

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.

In February 2012, we refurbished Cranberry Bar

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. Campari Room Cranbarry Bar

Birthday or other Party? Meeting?

The Campari Room offers a great atmosphere for private events and is perfectly located in the city centre for smaller meetings. The location can be booked for an exclusive party or meeting from Sunday until Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, only table reservations are possible.

Excellent cocktails are the signature of the Cranberry bar, the cocktail menu lists some classic drinks but also includes some surprisingly creative specialties. And if you want to get your own personal mix – just ask the barman and tell him your favorite flavor...and you will get your very own drink creation. Below some of our recipes to mix at home.



We look forward to host you at Cranberry bar and we will do our best to give you a good time and service. Our motto is "giving you a good time, gives us a good time too!"
