And it’s those conversations – among existing or new friends – that makes Reilly’s so appealing.
That’s because the crowd is so appealing, full of that youthful beer-drinking enthusiasm that elevates a bar from stand-around to outstanding.
You would have a great time in Basel if you went no further than Paddy Reilly’s, the Irish bar where every Friday and Saturday night might as well be St. Paddy’s is great for meeting people because, for one reason, there’s a lot people to meet!

It has something for everyone: A large outdoor lounge-style patio – with an atual simming pool in the middle of it – a happening bar inside, a dance floor in a separate building, and even a restaurant.Pick the cafe crowd that suits you best; the All-Bar-One bar has a local following but Pub Club prefers Kuchilin Bistro if there’s a table. Warteck, is a nice and light – but not too light – lager. In the winter, Zermatt Tourism converts the patio into a ski haus.On top of all that, there’s yoga classes on Saturday mornings, from 8-.Clubbers feel right at home in the elegantly intimate Atlantis (also near the Radisson Blu, two blocks in the other direction at Klosterberg 13).Atlantis is a lounge/dance club that brings in a sophisticated crowd.Between 30 and 50 actually work on the streets, and the remainder work in salons, brothels, bars and escort services.Over the last year police had to fine around 120 women who were looking for customers outside the dedicated zone.City Beach (Binningerstrasse 14, a block up the hill and to the right of Paddy’s) is paradise for some singles, who find it the ideal place for mingling with the opposite sex.If that makes it sound like a pick-up joint, well, it certainly has that potential. We’ll say this: The setting is certainly ripe for the pickings.We know of many fascinating women: empresses and noblewomen, nuns and holy women, witches and prostitutes, however also wives and mothers.It is incredible what women have accomplished, suffered and undergone!
