Everybody knows Zurich’s banking district on Paradeplatz. But the place to be in Kreis 3 is Idaplatz. Here too – on the corner of Berta and Zurlindenstrasse – business is booming. Not in the financial sector but rather in the city’s restaurant culture because Ida is surrounded on all sides by one exciting restaurant and bar after the other that attract an extremely lively scene of mainly young people from different countries who like to go out with class – and that outdoors. Why? Because in summer, Idaplatz turns into one big terrace where tout trois comes together for a cup of coffee, a cold beer, a glass of wine and a cocktail with pasta, crepes, mussels and chips... and, of course, to flirt. Just like on an Italian piazza.
