A popular Geneva nightspot with a terrace that draws big crowds at summertime (thanks in part to the lake view), Arthur’s Rive Gauche is well known in certain social circles. It’s an elegant kind of place, more suited to hobnobbing with glitterati than slouching over a table with a beer, although it manages to steer clear of pretension. There’s a restaurant too, with a well-priced special available at lunchtimes.
