One of Zurich’s architectural highlights, Schiffbau is a massive cultural centre on the site of a former shipyard. The converted premises include a theatre (run in conjunction with the renowned Schauspielhaus), the Moods jazz club, two connect halls, LaSalle restaurant, pictured, and Nietturm, a scenic tower bar. Its opening back in 2002 kick-started the revival of Zurich West: formerly an industrial one, it is now a trendy and vibrant district, full of hip galleries, restaurants and clubs.
