The Deck Bar
Chexbres – Switzerland
The Deck Bar
While I was discovering the area to a Brazilian friends coming from Brazil, he asked me to visit and have a drink to this bar the Deck in Chexbres such known internationally. He did not know exactyle the name of this bar but after a very good description I understood it was that one. It is well known internationally that when we arrive in this bar, we notice a horde of tourist among local people, all of them came for one thing: Immortalize this superb view that is the visit card of the Deck Bar. This is with their smartphone or their camera that everybody is taking a photo with their favorite cocktail or in front of this “mini infinite swimmingpool”. A queue can be created and people can wait for hours before coming in and having a memorable moment with their friends. Avoiding the crowd it would be better to arrive earlier and I would say that spring or summer are the best time to get there.
The Deck Bar
The Deck Bar is a lounge bar situated in the village of Chexbres in Lavaux, which is a huge vineyard in terraces classified as a UNESCO world heritage site.
The view from lounge bar is stunning, you have both view over cities of Montreux and Vevey and over Lausanne.
This lounge bar have a stunning view over Lake Geneva with cities of Vevey and Montreux situated in the Riviera area. From Montreux and Vevey, it takes around 18 minutes (from Montreux) and between 10 to 13 minutes to reach the bar from Vevey. From Lausanne it takes 20 minutes. There is a car park.
The Deck is the bar near to the restaurant called Le Baron Tavernier. At le Deck Bar you may enjoy delicious cocktails or others drinks and if you are hungry they propose different dishes called “ardoise”, one is with different cheese, another one with dried meat, which is a swiss typical dish from Canton of Valais, and if you want to taste both of them, there is one called “mixe ardoise” on which you will find cheese and meat as showed on a picture below. If you prefer sweet things, the last one is a sweet ardoise with diverses delicious little pies.
The view from le Deck Bar is breathtaking and only for this reason you should try this place because drinking a good drink while talking with your friends and having this view in the same time is awesome. Do not forget to take your camera or smartphone.
I highly recommend this place for its amazing view over Lavaux terraces, also for its wonderful sunset over Lavaux, and especially for their delicious cocktails. Do not forget your camera or smartphone!
