The decoration and the ambience of this bar is amazing. On Friday and Saturday nights there is always a live concert going on. The drinks are really good however... very expensive! A drink can cost you around CHF20-24. But if what you are looking for is to impress someone with quality and nice-fun-night-out this is definitely the place!

We had a networking drinks reception here as it is handy for the convention centre. The service is great and nice in the sunshine sat in the front.

Having got used to everything in montreux being great quality but very, very expensive I expected the same at funky Claude's. Sadly, it shares the price tag but not the quality. Food was disappointing. Live music was lovely.

This bar is the best bar to celebrate a birthday or even though just to take a drink with some friends. The atmosphere is really cool and the waiters are here for you and really attentif to your needs . I personally recommend it.

Loved popping in here for a bite to eat, some drinks and some live music. Fantastic staff - really friendly, chatty, courteous and efficient. It is pricey though so be prepared to pay Swiss prices!

Enjoyed a unique cocktail with mates on the patio whilst it was drizzling. Although it was an early Sunday evening, the ambience was funky!
