From Dublin to Zurich
After the former Jury’s Antique Bar in Dublin was purchased by auction by the Dame Street and moved to the Pelikanstrasse in Zurich, it was time for a new name.
It was quickly decided to associate the bar with the name of the past Irish writer James Joyce. The Jury’s Antique Bar, which he often frequented, is mentioned in several of his novels but James Joyce also had a special relationship with Zurich which lasted many years.
The writer spent some important years of his career in the Limmat city, to which he had a strong attachment. His last resting place can be found at the graveyard of the church Fluntern. His most relevant works include Finnegans Wake and Ulysses, parts of which were written in Zurich.
