Beat the gauntlet of tantalising rows of Grand Cru chocolate to reach the café bar at the back of the boutique, and you'll be rewarded with more varieties of hot chocolate than fathomable. Try the lavender flavour to treat your chilly winter taste buds.

In a former industrial warehouse, where exposed steel beams are sprayed with greenery, Werk8 is edgy, cool, and seriously good. It serves everything fresh from the kitchen, from iced tea and cordials, to bar snacks like hummus and parmesan rocks. The seasonal house cocktails are invitingly out-there. Depending on the menu, you might find drinks with peanut butter.

Baragraph proves that a bar can be downstairs from a McDonalds and still have class. In summer, the crowds spill out of the designer interior onto the street, to mingle with the crowds waiting for the trams.

Basel's oldest concert venue is an institution. Yet, not afraid of changing its spots, it recently reopened with a new concept: gastronomy meets music. You might eat your main in the club-cum-restaurant before enjoying a live performance, then retreat to the cool bar downstairs to sup a digestif and dance.
