Located in the old part of the city, Bar Cafe Des Art's has a rich history behind it. Before ending up in its current location, customers had to endure two changes of premises. Although what used to be small and original, is now large and flashy— Des Art's has not lost any of its charm. The interior is a visual feast, with wonderful posters and pictures. They frequently play live music, and the piano is very prominent in the basement. Now if you want it quiet and comfortable, then relax upstairs in a leather chair in the smokers' lounge with a cigar from their extensive selection. And the excellent drinks and food menu mean that a visit here is a must.
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.
The Fass has been around for a long time. In fact it was around long before there were any other fashionable or arty bars in Basel. The small, multi-colored bar also has a restaurant and is run along the lines of a Spanish watering-hole. After opening in the early 1980s it soon became a popular meeting place for people who live nearby, mainly artists, musicians and students. Many of the regulars have been enjoying a drink here since then. When live football matches are screened here, the Fass burst at the seams. There are two TVs and enthusiastic fans provide running commentary. The place is open daily from 18:30P.
