Nightlife in St. Gallen

Despite being a small city, there is quite a lot going on all throughout the year so whether you are here for a sun downer, a couple of beers or looking for cultural entertainment you are in luck. If you want to party like a local, then you should head to the main hotel in town, the Einstein – there are the best cocktails you will find in the city. There is a great bar and the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Later on a live piano band comes on to tickle the ivories while you start off a good night of revelry.

If you are really looking for a good boogie then head down to the Old Town, to the Wienstube zum Baumli in Schmiedgasse. The food is excellent and easy on your pocket and you can also busy some good blotting paper grub here like a crispy roll and Bratwurst. If you are into wine then you won’t be disappointed, this is the place to be. They have the best wine collection in the whole city. But it is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

If you are into live music, then go to Trischili in Bruhlgasse where they regularly showcase some of the best local bands. There is a cover charge on the weekends, but it is worth it and a lot of fun especially if you arrive on a themed night or karaoke is going on. In the summer, the party carries on until the wee hours so this is the place to go if you really want to party all night. Just check on opening and closing hours as they vary according to the season.

The state theatre showcases some 200 different performances during its busy annual season that runs from September right through to June of the following year. Check out what is on online before you go.
