The old Atlantis presents itself with a revamped interior, attractive wooden tables, comfortable seats and a lot more. These days there is less live music than in the past, but the quality of bands is excellent. A wide range of international dishes are included in the menu where formerly pale, tasteless dishes once held court (check their website for the current dishes). The weekend attracts long lines of people ready to dance to the masterful DJs.
The Hirschi was opened in the early 1980s and even though times have change it is still a popular haunt. The large watering-hole near the Lindenberg is also a restaurant and a concert venue. The small and smoke-filled basement is dedicated to music; loud music to be precise. If you're still into punk then look no further. The restaurant is fairly inexpensive and the menu is full of unusual dishes. On Sundays breakfast is served right through the afternoon.
Don't be fooled into thinking that the Campari Bar only serves campari. During the day you can also buy cakes, coffee, panini or any of the dishes on the menu of the Kunsthalle's restaurant next door. The bar itself has been divided into two separate areas and locals meet up here for a chat before or after visiting the cinema or the theater. The back of the bar is cozy, with lots of plush armchairs but the drinks are quite pricey. Either way, the view from here is always a treat and in the summer everyone eats and drinks outside in what may well be Basel's most beautiful garden.
Paddy Reilly's is the solution for every homesick Brit or Irish in Basel. The Guinness is poured perfectly, the staff are all British, and often don't have the best German, so orders are all taken in English. The English-speaking community in Basel have certainly taken to this pub. They can relax with their own and forget that they're not in London or Dublin. The interiors, with its old style adverts, certainly make the pub look very authentic. Along with classics like lasagne, they also serve typical pub fare, like Shepherd's Pie and baked potatoes.
