Our history

Restaurant le Museum since 1948

This renowned establishment dates as far back as 1948, where it also functioned as a bar/restaurant.

Restaurant le Museum has a strong affiliation with the Montreux jazz scene. Originally both a nightclub and a restaurant, it was co-founded in 1965 by the founder of the Montreux Jazz festival, Claude Nobs, and Karl Iverson, who worked to restore it to its original folkloric atmosphere.

People from as far as Sion, Fribourg and Geneva would come here to dance the night away. The legendary establishment has in the past welcomed some of the biggest names in music including world-famous rock stars David Bowie and Mick Jagger, to name but a few.

To this day, people flock from afar to indulge in some of the outstanding, satisfying dishes on offer that will definitely not disappoint.
