Cheap hotels near James Joyce Pub in Zurich, Switzerland
James Joyce (1882-1941), the famous Dubliner, writer and one-time Zurich resident, is said to have penned much of his most famous work, Ulysses, while living in Zurich. He died here and is buried near the Zoo in Fluntern Cemetery.
His legacy lives on in the so-named James Joyce Pub in Zurich’s Hochschulen neighborhood near Hottingen and the banks of the Limmat River. This place is a must-visit for lit types.
The interior space, once part of the Jury’s Hotel (then the Union Bank) near Bahnhofstrasse, is actually described in Ulysses. (Architects for the pub reassembled pieces of the old bank in the bar.)
Today the place serves up a typical British-Irish pub scene with a daily offering of specials and an impressive lineup of beers on tap. The James Joyce Pub is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit the pub's Web site.
