Kronenhalle, Tina Bar, and The Saltz: Thaddaeus Ropac’s Zurich

By Whitewaller

June 10, 2016

This weekend, just before Art Basel opens next week, Zurich will hold its annual Gallery Weekend. Whitewaller caught up with gallerist Thaddaeus Ropac, to get his take on the city.

“Kronenhalle is still undoubtedly the best art restaurant in Switzerland, with lamps by Diego Giacometti and great art. Alpenrose has very Swiss food with a great atmosphere.”

“There is Tina Bar, where you are allowed to smoke. Badi Enge is a place to swim and drink. And Longstreet, originally a brothel, during Art Basel, the art world takes it over.”

“The Saltz restaurant is the hottest restaurant in town designed by Rolf Sachs, newly opened this spring at the Dolder Grand Hotel.”

“I would suggest the Migros Museum as one of the most cutting-edge contemporary art museums run by its ambitious director, Heike Munder, and chief-curator, Raphael Gygax. They’ve hosted legendary solo shows by Markus Schinwald, Cory Arcangel, Josephine Meckseper, and Karla Black.”
