Sabine, the cultural connoisseur

I’ve been obsessed with art and classical dance since I was a child, so I can't miss a cultural event in the region, whether it’s an exhibition, a play or a ballet performance. I certainly love to nourish my soul, but I also love to nourish my stomach, so you're likely to find me in one of my favourite wine bars or heading off to discover a new restaurant.
« My city, where do I begin? It’s incredibly diverse, you can start off your day with brunch, view a classical or contemporary art exhibition in the city centre, stroll down to the lake for cocktails, and end your day with a theatre performance or at one of the city’s many bars. You’ll never find yourself at a loss for something to do. »
«The healthy South African bowl that’s simply perfect for a lunch break. Every time, it’s an explosion of different flavours, and tastes and combinations that are unsuspected, at least to my Swiss taste buds. And don’t even think of leaving without a slice of carrot cake!»

«Open since last October, the Fine Arts Museum, an architectural masterpiece in my view, presides over the museum hub, Lausanne’s new arts district. Named Plateforme 10, we look forward to seeing it completed with the Photography Museum and the MUDAC. I enjoy strolling along the arcades before going for a snack at the Nabi, the MCBA’s restaurant.»
Acerca de Plateforme 10
«A small art gallery located in the Flon garages, it presents contemporary Swiss artists each more original than the other. We don’t miss a single vernissage, all the more so as the owners are fantastic, before ending the evening with a drink at the Flon.»

«One of my haunts. A glass of wine, a really original cocktail, a small tapas or even several, it’s a trip round the world for the taste buds and the perfect place for an afterwork with plenty of nibbles.»
Acerca de Eat Me
«It has become the reference in contemporary theatre in the area thanks to its director Vincent Baudriller. Its programming well outside my comfort zone has taught me to appreciate contemporary theatre and its highly current themes.»
Acerca de Théâtre de Vidy
«Simply because they are the best sushi in Lausanne and that the deli is packed full of original Japanese products, among which delicious gyozas and mixes for Okonomyaki that are easy to make at home.»

«Le Vestibule, known as the city's clandestine bar, is modelled after a speakeasy from the '20s. Once you've discovered its secret doors, you can take a seat on one of the comfy sofas and sip a delicious little cocktail. However, making your choice is difficult – each new drink is more original than the last. In summer you can even sit on a terrace with a view of the cathedral while reading one of the books plucked from the shelves lining the bar.»
Acerca de Le Vestibule
«Le Flon’s new delicatessen. In a large airy space surrounded by shelves full of delicious truffle-flavoured sauces, different types of pesto and other condiments, each one in its stylish packaging upstaging the next one. A feast for the eyes and taste buds. And you can even order their truffle flavoured crisps from their on-line shop without moving from your settee at home.»
Acerca de Mon Ami Lausanne
«Lausanne has the great good fortune to have its own dance company - and one of the best! The Béjart Ballet Lausanne immortalises the talent of the choreographer Maurice Béjart. I never tire of seeing his greatest creations such as Le Presbytère, Ballet for life, Brel et Barbara or The 7 Greek dances.»
«It’s quite impossible to leave the cutest boutique in Lausanne without buying a little bracelet or a pretty ring. The boutique sells a range of jewellery brands and accessories as well as delicate lingerie.»
Acerca de Viva Frida
«This concept store specialises in the work of Swiss designers. You will be spoilt for choice between design accessories, a mask which is soooo 2020 for example, a unique work by its creator, a delicious amaretto blanc Adriatico or a delectable slab of Orfève chocolate.»
Acerca de JSBG concept store
«The best 100% Swiss brand of natural cosmetics. Bars of soap smelling absolutely delicious, dry hydrating oils bewitchingly perfumed and, in keeping with 2020, verbena sanitizing gels which do not dry one’s hands.»
Acerca de Cocooning biocosmetics
«I return there time and time again just for their quite exceptional mafalde alla “carbonara” di pistacchio. But diners find it almost impossible to choose between the pasta specialities, each one more original than the other and which leave the usual “spag bols” or spaghetti carbonara far behind.»
Acerca de Pasta e Sfizi
«One of those rare Italian restaurants preparing delicious tagliolini with black truffle cream all year round. Accompanied, of course, by a small glass of house red wine from Tuscany. A paradise of flavours.»
