Wine bar in the middle of Kleinbasel

The bar with salumi and cheese specialties and over 100 wines can be found in the heart of the old town of Kleinbasel on Rheingasse. The extensive offerings and lively atmosphere make the Consum an uncomplicated meeting point. Whether it’s the fresh lunch at noon, sweet temptations in the afternoon or a convivial aperitif in the evening - Consum will spoil you.

Our offer

A cool Volta Bräu or a white wine? A plateau, colourfully mixed according to your choice, or a portion of olives? Discover our specialities and arrange your favourite aperitif yourself.


At lunchtime we offer a fresh salad and homemade soups from the Krafft kitchen in addition to the mixed platters. The unique Consum Sandwich completes our offer - you can eat it on our terrace or take it with you.


Consum Shop

In the Consum shop you will find a selection of Mediterranean specialities as well as delicious regional dishes. Let our staff recommend you a wine and you will take the Consum feeling home with you.

Your host

As a joyful storyteller, Max lends his Italianità to the Consum and recommends you the most convenient wine he has got in the cellar for you. Are you curious about his favourite combination of wine and platter speciality? Ask him personally and he will serve you his personal highlights.
