Nightlife in Geneva

Geneva is at once decadent and down-to-earth after dark, from beers and laughter at Mr Pickwick Pub in Pâquis district to sleek lounge bars like Demi Lune Café in the Old Town. Whether it's sopranos at the opulent Grand Théâtre or intimate live bands at Carouge's crowded Le Chat Noir, the city excels in arts. Clubbers head for celebrity haunts like Bypass or relaxed Shakers. Most bars close at 2am, clubs at 5am.
