History has been written at ODEON for over 100 years. Once the second home of avant-garde intellectuals, the Café Bar today is a venue for anyone in need of a quiet break from the hectic pace outside – set in the heart of Zurich.


ODEON is an institution: here, where anyone who’s anyone in Zurich passes by, history has been written for over 100 years. Its illustrious guests contribute as much to the legendary spirit of the Café Bar as the unique nostalgic ambiance.


Good things will always be good at ODEON. These include the classic cocktails and carefully selected wines on our drinks list but also the cold and warm specialities typical for a coffee house of the Viennese Art Nouveau style.


Once the home of avant-garde intellectuals, ODEON today is a venue for those who like to enjoy each moment to the full – with classic interior architecture and service with a smile.
