Enjoy in style whenever you find the time

A fine whisky, a fruity cocktail, a fine cigar - in the Macardo Honesty Bar with Cigar Lounge, enjoyment comes first. Inside in a stylish ambience. Outside on the large terrace with a view of the Alpstein and Säntis.

Honesty means "trust" = "self-service" on which our bar concept is based - Here you serve yourself - and also pay yourself. Welcome are all connoisseurs who appreciate this advantage.

You will quickly notice that the clocks tick differently here. Perhaps this is because you have a direct view of the Macardo barrel warehouse from the bar. Or because our robot bartender mixes your favorite cocktail in a matter of seconds. Or because of the company of your friends, employees or club colleagues. Because our bar can also be reserved - if desired in combination with a gala dinner in the event room.

Indulgence knows no bounds at Macardo.
