Looking for a good night out in Zurich with some XXX entertainment thrown in?
Langstrasse (or ‘Long Street’) is a road in the centre of Zurich known for being one of the city’s red-light districts. A hub for night-time entertainment, you can find plenty of bars and clubs with some offering a more adult theme than others. Prostitution is a legal and regulated industry in Switzerland so you can find far more than just a rub and tug or lap dance to itch that ‘scratch’.
In this guide, we’ll give you a rundown of the best spots for adult entertainment in Langstrasse, what to expect when you visit this part of Zurich and what kind of services are on offer.
What is Langstrasse?
Located in District 4 of Zurich, Langstrasse (which translates as ‘Long Street’ runs north-east from the southern end where the district courts and Badenerstrasse are situated right up to the city’s main station, Hauptbahnhof.
It is a notorious red-light district in Zurich and has historically been associated with the sex trade as well as industrialisation. It is heavily multicultural and has one of the highest density of foreign residents in the city. With an estimated population of 10,500 people, around 40-50% of them are believed to originate from outside Switzerland.
Covering an area of 1.13 sq. km, the district of Landstrasse actually refers to the general area and side streets which run off Long Street. This includes, but is not limited to:
All around this area can get quite lively of an evening and there are plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants catering for visitors and residents of the city not looking to get laid, However, if you want to enjoy Zurich’s wilder side then you’ve certainly hit the right spot.

Strip Clubs and Contact Bars in Langstrasse
Like may European cities, strip clubs aren’t the cheapest of venues to spend a night and those in Zurich are no different, particularly if you are in the Lansgtrasse area.
Clubs offer a rolling show of half-naked dancers usually on a platform/stage or podium either with the aid of a dancing pole. Some venues offer lap and/or table dances but not much else besides.
Admission is typically free but drinks can be expensive as can the personal and private attentions of the dancers.
Contact, or ‘Kontakt’, bars on the other hand are like regular bars except these are generally populated with working girls looking for customers. The bars work in a similar way to a brothel with the women accepting drinks from paying customers and then either taking them to rooms on the premises or to a private apartment nearby. If you use the ‘hotel’ accommodation on site then you will need to pay the club for rental of a room in addition to the service fee being charged by your companion.
Red Lips Cabaret
Hohlstrasse 47, 8004 Zürich
Situated on the corner of Langstrasse and Hohlstrasse, Red Lips Cabaret has been one of the go-to adult venues in Zurich for many years. Recently refurbished, it now offers a more modern atmosphere.
It’s not a huge club but it does have private VIP seating and a large and well-stocked bar.
A true gentleman’s club, you can experience teasing strip routines from the intimately close podium pole and enjoy the company of the club’s many hostesses.
From Sunday to Wednesday, the bar is not that busy and you can expect a relaxed atmosphere but fewer ladies. Whereas Thursday through to Saturday sees a rise in tempo with a live DJ and a busy party atmosphere.
As for the dancers themselves, the galleries show a selection of very fine figures and the club does have a decent reputation for putting on a good show.
The club is open daily from 9.00pm until 4.00am but stays open later on Friday and Saturday nights.
Schöneggstrasse 6, 8004 Zürich
Much more of a night club than Red Lips, Gregory’s is a lively venue and one of the oldest strip clubs in the city.
It is a traditional style strip bar with podium, dancing poles and plenty of lap/table services on the go as well as private rooms for one-to-one encounters. All in all, the place is a little dated and wouldn’t go down as the most memorable venue you’ve ever visited and it has had a reputation in the past for being very expensive for what it offers.
Again, its not a huge club so you will be getting up close and personal with the hostesses and dancers as well as to other guests.
The club also offers accommodation to its guests in the Hotel Gregory and you can get a 20% in-house discount if you use any of their rooms whilst you are a guest of the club.
Gregory Night Club is open as follows:
