6 Lausanne Bars to Warm Up this Winter

November 15, 2023

We've rounded up 6 Lausanne bars where you'll feel the warmth from your cocktails as well as the intimate & cozy atmosphere.

1. Holy Monkey

Brought to you by the same team behind the speakeasy Vestibule (right next door), this Tiki Bar offers quality cocktails designed by skilled mixologists as well as homemade pizzas prepared fresh, all in a tropical, intimate, and warm atmosphere.


Begin, prolong, or end your night out at JAJA, a bar and nightclub that offers nibbles upstairs and plenty of dancing downstairs. With eccentric yet tasteful designs, playful cocktails, and high-quality small plates, it’s a spot worth cozying into this winter.

3. Lausanne Cocktail Club (LCC)

Because Bertrand is the OG of the Lausanne cocktail scene, you’d be amiss to not try one of his creations. Cozy, intimate, and unmissable cocktails and nibbles make the LCC the place to be regardless of the season.

4. LP's

A regular favorite, and for good reason, LP’s is an institution in Lausanne. Different rooms and corners for different tastes allow you to find a spot suited for your mood. On certain evenings, you can enjoy your drinks with live music and a roaring fire in the back corner.

5. Le Vestibule

Nestled in the charming cobblestoned streets of La Cité is a small speakeasy with a ‘hidden’ lounge upstairs. Innovative cocktails, dim lighting, and convivial atmosphere make this hidden gem worth the search.

6. Java

Eclectic intersects with elegance at this Lausanne institution on Rue Marterey. The hanging glass bulbs and historic chandelier emit warm light in the evenings, and velvet sofas nestled up to playful wallpapers makes you want to settle in with a drink in hand while listening to a curated list of songs.
