Zürich is the biggest city in Switzerland with 370,000 inhabitants. Probably the smallest big city in the world. For the past 10 years, the entire city landscape is changing a lot. The city administration is pushing urbanism projects in order to re-establish certain areas into offices and homes. We can see it especially on the industrial areas in which old warehouses and factories get now a new life and look. Hotels, cinemas, theaters, a technopole with many creative companies and restaurants. And talking about food, here a great address in Zürich of a very modern and elegant restaurant called Rüsterei. It is placed in the heart of the biggest up-class shopping mall of Zürich: Sihlcity.


Sihlcity is the pioneering implementation of an original idea of urbanity: the associations of various uses in a manageable place.


The diverse range of approximately 100 000 m² of floor space includes several restaurants, bars, cafes, cinemas, community center, office space, a health and wellness center, a hotel, a shopping mall, service areas and city apartments.
The idea of the Rüsterei is to welcome you in a contemporary ambiance made from the contrast of a ancient place with a history and the latest trends of fooding. The Swiss artist Heinz Julen transformed this old paper factory into a great place, between lounge ambiance and modern bistrot.
