The Bleu Lézard is one of the most popular café/bar/clubs in Lausanne. A good place to eat by day, by night the bar becomes busy with a diverse mix who tend to spill outside to the tables in the street so the crowding is bearable. There is no charge to enter the club downstairs where they feature live music and various popular DJs. An added extra is that the bar is also an exhibition space for young artists, which changes every month, making for great conversation pieces.
Situated just behind the Esplanade du Flon, this nightclub and dance hall is one of the trendiest in Lausanne, and considered a jewel of Swiss clubbing. Inside it’s all neon lights, VIP booths, sleek surfaces, and miniature strobe lights – it feels, a little bit, like walking into a magazine shoot showing off the latest fashions in nightclub interior designs. The club has two floors: the first has the main dance floor and VIP area, while the second floor hosts weekend Latin music nights and parties. The rooftop is something to behold, with a lot of colorful seating, a few small but nicely designed gardens, and a large, covered bar.
