Baur’s Brasserie at Baur au Lac

In September 2019, Zurich’s historic Baur au Lac hotel and one of the world’s most iconic luxury hotels opened a new lifestyle-focused, contemporary European brasserie, Baur’s. Situated just off the shopping promenade of Bahnhofstrasse, Baur’s is the classic brasserie reimagined; serving lunch and dinner.

Located inside Baur au Lac, which recently celebrated its 175th anniversary, Baur’s is a completely new concept for Baur au Lac’s usual fine-dining and exclusive dining options, inspired by the classic European brasserie neighbourhood-style restaurant and bar.

The new restaurant is the brainchild of Andrea Kracht, sixth-generation owner of the Baur au Lac, working in collaboration with London experience specialist agency Gorgeous Group and internationally-acclaimed London- and New York-based Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.

Featuring a world-class art collection, Baur’s is modern, chic, casual and sophisticated. Its creators have brilliantly imagined a warm and cosy space that is contemporary and timeless at the same time. The reimagination of the classic brasserie design has been inspired by the history of Baur au Lac and the city of Zurich.

As well as welcoming Baur au Lac’s guests, the brasserie aims to be a popular destination with Zurich’s locals, with an elegant bar, restaurant, buzzing dining counter and stylish cigar lounge. lounge. Baur’s embodies a less formal style of service, aiming to deliver memorable experiences.

Food focuses on grill-room classics with contemporary interpretations, using the best seasonal cuisine, all while retaining Baur au Lac’s signature world-class standards.
