Music and dance venues
The city of Baden offers an exciting range of music and dance venues. In some places you can hit the dance floor yourself, while in others you can enjoy a concert while sipping a cocktail.
Club Joy is a multi-functional event location. Dance the night away on Fridays and Saturdays in this sophisticated party club. During the week, small art events, theatre, readings, musical showcases or TV broadcasts are held in a cosy atmosphere and the rooms become an oasis of relaxation during the intermissions.
Isebähnli (Jazz in Baden)
Jazz has been associated with Baden for a long time. You can hear modern jazz every Monday during the autumn and winter months. Jazz ensembles, mainly Swiss but of international renown, are featured and offer jazz at its finest. From modern mainstream to improvisation; with a plate of spaghetti and a fresh draught beer.
This incredible space combines a cultural youth centre with a restaurant, an event venue with an outside area, band rehearsal studios and an atelier, and marks the beginning a new chapter in the history of youth work and cultural advancement in Baden. On the one hand, a new meeting place has been created by bringing the Werkk and its bar to life. On the other hand, the hall space of the old blacksmith’s forge offers a unique industrial ambience: with its design and shape, it is a one-of-a-kind location for Baden, the region and beyond which can be used to make creative ideas and projects a reality.
