Set Current Location
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.
One of the most popular event venues in the city, Volkshaus Basel most commonly plays host to concerts and musical events. Buy a ticket in advance and add spice to your evening with lots of rock, Indie and Electro music. Popular local and national musicians entertain the audiences throughout the year with their classy performances. The space also houses a bar that serves an impressive array of spirits, brews and cocktails.
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.
A brewing company at some point in time, the Werkraum Warteck complex houses SUD- one of the best clubs the city has to offer. This versatile venue is a hotspot for a number of events and often plays host to some of the biggest names from the world of music. Theater, live concerts, dance parties and DJ nights are just a few examples of the kind of events you will find here. Cultural and social programs are also a regular feature. There is no limit to the excitement at this venue, thanks to the wide range of shows offered.
Carambolage has the best of both worlds: music and food. This place regularly hosts entertaining live performances by talented musicians. There are solo artists creating a lively atmosphere by performing on the piano or the guitar. Apart from live concerts there are tasty brunches to feast on or films to be seen.
