Our simple aim with the Axe Bar was to create the best bar in Adelboden; an authentic experience matching Zurich’s urban offerings. We were eager to make a link to the majestic mountains that surround us and allow the look and feel of the bar to be informed by the one piece of technical kit that defines Alpiniste climbing – the ice axe. In particular, we were inspired by the way climbers personalise their technical gear by scribbling their name on bits of electrical or duct tape. It’s an unusual touch – and we like it. The bar offers wholesome food, a well-stocked bar and a place to read and reflect, from midday to midnight each day. Have a lazy lunch or settle in for a long evening and brag about where you've been on skis, board, bike or foot. Sample one of our local beers or wines or ask one of the team to knock up a creative or classic cocktail. You probably deserve it.
