The Swiss is deffinatly not a dive. They have a ton of beer to choose from and the bartenders are cool. The music was good and they even had an old school Photobooth!
I would deffinatly recommend the Swiss to anyone who wants to see a good time the Tacoma way.
Fun every time I go!Great food, good bands,yummy beer and pool tables.What more can you ask for.I love this bar its my kinda place everytime I walk through the front door puts a big smile on my face......Damn is that enough!
Whether your single or attached the swiss is the place to be. If you want a crazy night out with all your friends, get there early... don't wait, because the longer you wait the longer the line and once you get in it becomes nearly impossible to order a drink unless you're blessed with a chest.
The Swiss has something for everyone and more... live music, dancing, pool tables and game room, and seating open to outside which is perfect for those summer nights out.
And if you do get an opportunity to check it out make sure you dont miss kry... a band that frequents the Swiss regularly. They're definitely worth seeing.
Overall, the Swiss is an 'okay' type of night club. The bands played were okay. Its a good place to accomodate masses of people in the seating area and the pools tables were plenty. However, I found the drinks way too marked up. The dance floor was inadequate. And the bouncer looked like a bum that they took off the street. I don't know about the place as a restaurant-- I never hit it during day light hours so I wouln't know what to say about it. But if you just want a hip and fresh scene you can take your friend to this place if you are 21 and older.
The Swiss is like a european Cheers... only better! Great staff and owners. Everyone makes you feel welcome. Weekends can be typical bar nights but the days and the weekday evenings can always be something different.
If you want to relax after work and have a beer, this is the place to go. My fiance and I like to come here to play free pool (on Sundays and Tuesdays) and just kick back, without having to feel like we need to dress up. Parking is easy and they have live bands at night. The building consists of three big rooms. The first being the bar and seating area, the third has the stage and a large TV plus more seating, and the last consists of the games such as pool tables, darts, video games, etc.
The food is pretty decent too and if you must have your liquor, you can run on next door to the pizza place and have your shot. Great place!
