Where to go after Velocity

Going to a fitness class with friends after work is becoming the new “Happy Hour”. More and more people see the value of doing something productive and beneficial with their friends, instead of just drinking and eating. Plus, you still get to blow off steam after a long day and participate in a shared experience of pushing together.

That said, burning calories makes one hungry, sometimes even hangry (WTF!). Luckily, Kreis 5 has a lot to offer after a heart-pumping, sweat-dropping, beat-driven Velocity class. We picked a variety of restaurants you should check out. From Mexican over to Vietnamese and traditionally Swiss, there is something for everybody.
