A Bar Covered in Copper

Union Restaurant

Tucked away in the Kleinbasel neighborhood of Basel, the  Union Restaurant is a visual delight of trompe l’oeil.  Famed Swiss architect Aurélie Blanchard lined the walls, tables, and even the light fixtures with copper to create an effect of constant motion.  The food is classic American with a twist, and diners eat family-style at long, oak tables. Locals, immigrants, expats, and students alike frequent the adjoining bar to enjoy old school cocktails.
