The RiffRaff has two separate bars, one at the Bistro and another which is next door and technically called the Bar. On a previous visit, I tried the Bistro bar which is open most of the day, this visit was for The Bar which opens in the evenings.. The main complex is the movie theater and it seems to be... More

Riffraff is my favourite cinema in Zurich, located in the famous '4th district' full of pubs and restaurants. But if I want to have a beer or snack before or after the screening I usually stay there with friends and enjoy a nice atmosphere and friendly service.

Next to the cinema, you have the bar where you can have a nice drink an chill out. No need to go to the cinema, you can just enjoy a drink or small food. At night especially, I enjoyed the cosy atmosphere with the lights, music, sofas... Perfect place to have nice long discussions with your friends or lover.

There are several sidewalk tables and inside seating consists of tall tables and stools by the bar and padded sofas and chairs in the rest of the bar. I observed several families there with pram in tow. The environment is rather chilled. The staff was very... More

Wandered in this place as the excellent International Beer Bar opposite was closed. Looks like a good selection of drinks and food - we just had a beer and a coffee between us. What annoyed me immensely was my bill came to SFr9.80 - I handed over a SFr20 note - the waitress gave me a tenner back and without... More

We looked up the Riffraff Bistro website so we knew what to expect: a small lounge-bar with drinks and "nibblies" - ideal for a pre- or post-movie snack. It turned out to be a somewhat better than that. First we ordered drinks. My partner was happy with his red wine and I was more than pleased with my white (from... More

The Riffraff lies in the heart of the lively Langstrasse quarter and is a real Zurich original! At the unique Riffraff Bar we mix cocktails and offer a wide selection of drinks. Just next door at cozy Riffraff Bistro we serve food and snacks as well: daily breakfast, hearty sandwiches and quiches, fresh salads and finger food along with drinks and wine. At the in-house cinema Riffraff Kino we show independent films from around the world. No need to say: always in original language version with subtitles and without intermission.
