Where sophistication and provocation sit comfortably side-by-side, enter the universe of JAJA. A bar and nightclub that invites you to drink, dance, and engage in the magic that’s reserved for a true ‘night out’.
**La Mise En Bière has moved (but not too far!)–check out the updated address below** It doesn’t look like much from the street. In fact, you can pass the shop without really knowing it’s there (and it took me quite some time to find it, even with my I-phone navigating me). Above the doorway hangs a sign that reads, ‘Tailleur’—something that has no doubt misled several passersby. But if you do discover this shop, you will immediately succumb to its charm…and the hundreds of bottles of beer you desperately want to try. Claude is a man who knows what he loves. He always loved beer, but pragmatism steered him toward a 9-5 job in an office with cubicles and a boss. Sound familiar?

We had actually tried to book SUD two times before and it had been complet, but third time is a charm, right? SUD, located just across from the Opera, boasts seasonal and fresh dishes influenced by the Mediterranean. The head chef, Sébastien Trinquier, is young but passionate–with roots in Montpelier, he desires to bring a bit of the South here to Lausanne. The decor and ambiance is spot on–though we could have done with a bit lower-lighting since it was dinner time.
