Step inside Zurich's historic restaurant and legendary bar to discover an abundance of fine art and haute cuisine.
At the Kronenhalle restaurant, arguably Zurich's finest, the old-world decor is as sumptuous as the food. A former beerhall, this culinary landmark was a meeting place for musicians, artists, and thinkers from the early 20th century, many of whom paid for their meals with the fruits of their labor. This elegant book takes you inside the famous restaurant. From the white linen tablecloths, soft lighting, elegant chandeliers, and sumptuous dark wood walls to the masterpieces by Picasso, Rodin, Matisse, Bonnard, and Chagall that hang on those walls, it shows the spirit of creativity that inhabits every room and provides a closer look at the history of a superb art collection.
