“An old gym turned into one of my favourite locations in Bern. You can go there for lunch or dinner in their court, then stay and have drinks while the place turns into a club - or visit one of their many live events and discover the artists and cultural happenings in the other parts of the building surrounding the cozy and relaxed court”

“Great bagels and crazy amounts of cakes and pies (many of them vegan). Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. On these days, there's a food truck run by Fabian's brother in front of the café. It's called 'Outlawz Food' and offers, among other things, vegan doner kebab (only 11:45 to 13:30).”
