A tour of Geneva



Jan 18th 2016 in organization food

We’ve been in Geneva for a year now and the city of Calvin has been good to us. We’ve met great people, discovered some cool spots and been entrusted with a few projects.

Below you’ll find a (non-exhaustive) list that allows you to partake in our Genevan encounters, discoveries and projects:

Pachacamac - a restaurant

A few meters from our headquarters is Pachacamac, which I believe to be the best Peruvian restaurant in French-speaking Switzerland. This cozy place serves up creative dishes that will take you on a journey into Peruvian cuisine.

Correspondance – a boutique

This little-known boutique is hidden away in Geneva’s old town. It sells sneakers, clothing, books and great records. Last time I dropped in, I came out with a pair of New Balance sneakers and the Miami Monocle Travel Guide.

La Petite Reine - a bar

“Home sweet home.” La Petite Reine is like our second meeting room in Genevaland. I’ve gotten into the habit of grabbing a beer (…ok, more like three) and an empanada before taking the train home. This casual, friendly bar is the perfect spot for an after-work drink.

La Mer en Boîte - a pop-up store

What do you get when you put together a group of friends, sardines and a mobile bar? Something that’s simple and not too new-tech, but totally fashionable and in tune with consumer trends. It’s good, quick and tasty. La Mer en Boîte is baby of group of buddies passionate about artisanal products and good Design. I’ve had a taste of it, and I encourage you to do the same.
