The party never stops: in the Canton of Bern, there’s always something to experience.

Have a drink, play darts over snacks or dance until sunrise. Bern’s nightlife has plenty for locals and guests to enjoy.
There’s no better way to relax after shopping or skiing than by settling down in a bar and enjoying a cool drink. To pass the time, visitors can play some billiards or take on their friends at bowling. The ambiance is as varied as the choice of drinks. Whatever you’re looking for, classic piano bars, rustic sports bars or refined lounges provide an atmospheric end to the day.

Colourful nightlife in Bern’s bars

Budding bands and established artists can be found performing in many bars. Away from the big shows, guests pick their favourite songs from the jukebox or pass their requests to the DJ. Every style of music is covered, from jazz, blues and pop to disco and rock. At the casino, players dream of hitting the jackpot. With a bit of luck, blackjack, roulette and poker will swell their bank balance. There’s always plenty of entertainment during the games, even if luck isn’t on their side.

From stage to screen and back

From Hollywood to Bollywood and beyond, blockbusters attract audiences to the Canton of Bern’s cinemas. Traditional theatres and giant picture palaces screen comedies, thrillers and action movies. Fans of classic entertainment also get their money’s worth, with a chance to watch artists in close-up in the theatre or at classical concerts.
