How to get there
We recommend using public transport, as parking spaces directly by eParadise are very limited.
- By public transport: From Zürich mainstation, take Bus 31 to "Luggwegstrasse" or any train to Bahnhof Altstetten, from there it's a 5 minutes walk.
- By car: Refer to Google Maps. The closest car parks are the P+R Parkhaus Altstetten (Luggwegstrasse 65, CHF 15.- per day) and the Parkhaus Letzipark (Baslerstrasse 52, CHF 4.- for 4 hours, + CHF 6.- for every additional hour).
Food and drinks
Being a bar, you are not allowed to bring your own food and beverages into the venue; drinks, snacks and Dominos Pizza are available directly at the bar. Support eParadise and us by buying your drinks and food at the bar.
On our stream we aim to bring you fighting game tournaments all over Switzerland in high quality.
