The Bern Burgergemeinde and Casino director and chef Ivo Adam have created a sensory experience in a place where history meets the present. The Casino Bern has been a popular meeting place since its inauguration in 1909 and, after two years of renovation, celebrated a glorious reopening in September 2019. Architecturally, the building’s original splendour was restored, while the new management under Ivo Adam modernised the entire concept and made it fit for the future. A one-stop culture, culinary art and event experience in Bern.
Culturally, tradition meets the modern age – in accordance with the venue’s new image and ambiance. On the Casino’s stage, you will see and hear classical concerts, cabaret, satire, trendy pop music acts and much more. Sometimes even all of them at once. And on special nights, cultural treats are combined with culinary ones in an all-round sensory experience.
The cuisine also combines the traditional with the avant-garde: Five different concepts are implemented in five different restaurants. From the sophisticated cuisine at Salon d’Or, the down-to-earth menu at Bistrobar and the elegant meals at the Casino Restaurant to Bern’s culinary heritage at Zunfttisch and Japanese specialities at Chefstisch (chef’s table) - the diverse range and opening hours have every wish covered.
The historic rooms of the Casino Bern, located in the middle of the Old City, are the perfect setting for any type of event and can be rented. Be it a workspace or a ballroom, an annual general assembly or a large anniversary celebration – there are rooms for every occasion and every group size, from six to 1,500 people. The Casino kitchen is equipped to cater to the guests’ every need, from large banquets and standing dinners to intimate aperitifs.
