Need a place to hold an after-work party or social event, enjoy cocktail hour or a weekend bash? Basel’s premier event location Bar Rouge is the perfect venue to suit all of those needs and many more besides. The upscale bar, at 105 metres high over the city, boasts spectacular views over Basel and its pristine landscape.
Urban chic, relaxed luxury and an unrivaled location: this bar will even make you feel closer to the sky, especially during sunsets. Whether you are looking to relax and unwind after a long day at work, a conference, a shopping spree, or simply looking to enjoy Basel’s nightlife scene, this light-flooded, aesthetic space will always exhilarate you.
Top place to unwind with over 450 spirits
Bar Rouge, Switzerland’s highest bar, offers cocktails, infused spirits and culinary delights for all tastes. Experienced bar keepers can create cocktails that cater to any guest’s individual taste buds: they will mix sweet, creamy, spicy, sour, dry or virgin drinks. “Favourites include our champagne infused syrups and liqueurs, which we use for our specialty cocktails,” states the Bar Rouge management. “Our guests can choose from our 450-item spirit menu and then sit back to enjoy and take in the wonderful views over Basel and the tripoint where the borders of France, Germany and Switzerland meet.”
A versatile location and New Year’s Eve party
Want to wow your clients, colleagues, or your first date? The cosmopolitan atmosphere complements the quality of the drinks, food and the amazing views. As a high-end venue, Bar Rouge provides an ideal setting for a variety of events, including exhibitions and receptions, fundraisers, private parties, and corporate events.
Bar Rouge first opened in 2003 and will celebrate 15 years of success this December.
A team of 35 staff – including competent event and marketing planners – will work with clients to realise their individual demands and organise special events during the week or weekend. “We also offer a special package with which to enjoy New Year’s Eve 2018 in one of Europe’s most exciting cities.”
