The Vintage Scene and Plainpalais’ Fleamarket

For collectables and toys head over to the tram side of the Plaine de Plainpalais, where you’ll also find stalls selling candles, oils and jewellery.
The Best Cocktail Bars
Treat yourself to a night of luxury and relaxation at one of Geneva’s cocktail bars. If you fancy a chilled evening in a small neighbourhood bar, L’Atelier Cocktail Club is the perfect choice. Serving all types of cocktails, from the classics to the creative, you can even concoct your own drink.
If you’re looking for a livelier scene, however, head over to l’Apothicaire Cocktail Club. With 25 inventive cocktails to choose from, it has become the cocktail hotspot. Spend the evening trying-out fresh new flavours and soaking in the bustling ambiance.
For the ultimate glamour experience, return to the chic 1920s at Le Verre à Monique. Decorated in a vintage style, with kitsch knickknacks, mismatched furniture and crystal vases, this bar offers a range of imaginative cocktails served in vintage glasses.
