Known as the birthplace of the surrealist art movement Dadaism, Cabaret Voltaire is the mecca of the quirky. Creative, edgy and artistic, this place is a good way to rediscover the roots of this weird movement that was born as far back as 1916. To know more about this movement, you could choose to see the movie dedicated to it at this venue. This is the very spot where Hans Arp and Hugo Ball got together to question the existing structure of arts and in turn, society. Stop by for a cup of coffee and relive the time when this freak movement was born and flourished.

Cabaret Voltaire Reviews & Ratings
Must go to place in Zurich if you are interested in literature and culture and the Dada Movement. Interesting shop and great bar.
The café where Dada was invented, the walls are covered in profanity and graphic images. They used to be part of the Zurich City pass, but they told us they had ended that association when I went. My husband got a beer, and I got their signature drink, which included absinthe. A lot of big groups hung out chatting there, but my husband and I enjoyed the people watching.
A must visit for anyone interested in the history of Zürich and the DADA Art movement. Furthermore it's got one of Zürich's finest selection of Absinthe and lots of Reading, Theatre and Performance Events.
Loved the vibe and the decor! Located In the old town of Zurich.
The place is charming, but with disappointing cocktails—just tumblers of alcohol-flavoured ice in place of the real thing. Plus, the card machine minimum is 20CHF. That’s expensive ice. I ordered a pisco sour, and should have walked out when I saw how it was being made.
