For those coming to enjoy an aperitif or an evening drink, we offer a selection of local and international beers on draft and in bottle. Our wine list includes by the glass and by the bottle offerings from the Lake of Biel wine region as well as a variety of Swiss and Italian wines, including a selection of natural wines. We also offer a wide range of aperitifs and spirits as well as a small craft cocktail menu.
Café de la presse
digital and printed
In addition to traditional newspapers, digital access to newspapers, magazines and other subscriptions to content is also offered.
The Atomic Café was the first public internet station in Biel in 1996. As a “café de la presse”, it also had the largest range of press services of any café in town. In this spirit, the Atomic Café is now going one step further and adding digital access to paid subscription content for selected titles.
The Association Universelle manages the Atomic Café's cultural program and presents music, literature and more. The association's program committee consists of experienced promoters who work together to curate a program of unique events to be presented in the Atomic Café. The cultural program also offers the opportunity for those interested in hosting a production of their own original content in the space. Since 2014 we have been hosting Atomic Friday concerts as well as regular readings, singer songwriters and exhibitions. The new club will pick up on this and expand it with the new Salle Universelle.
