A glamorous chameleon, Jade is the reigning queen of Zürich’s more stylish clubs – quite an achievement for a venue that is technically only a club for two nights a week. Housed in an elegant, high ceilinged former-post office, Jade doubles as a chic restaurant and bar during the week. With a glossy cream and dark wood aesthetic, it’s hard to imagine this sleek space exploding with energy, but come the weekend that’s just what happens. The warm up act is the ‘Blue Marlin’ themed Thursday night, which pulls in a cosmopolitan crowd for a laid-back session of Balearic chill-out music, Mediterranean cuisine and cocktails. The party lifts off on Friday and Saturday nights, when big name international DJs and party labels, including Hed Kandi and Perfect Lovers, draw in a sexy, Euro-chic crowd to fill the floor – an over 21s only policy keeps out the teen posse. A large central bar ensures good service, even when it gets rammed, and there is an outdoor terrace for smokers and summer fun. One minor peeve is the lack of proper dance floor, so we recommend booking a table if you really want to shake your thang.
