Basel Nightlife

For a complete listing of events, pick up a copy of Basel Live, a booklet published every two weeks (partially in English). Also note Events Highlights, a flyer printed every six months in English. Both are available at the tourist office and hotel desks. If you'd like to play it by ear, the Steinenvorstadt is crowded with bars filled with young people, and on the Kleinbasel side there

are late-night bars along Oberer Rheinweg.
