The days may be getting shorter, but this just means that Girls’ Night Out can start a little earlier! Check out these venues to inspire you to replace cozy slippers for heels, and a night with Netflix for a rowdy night out with the girls.
This lounge bar is one of the most popular places to grab a drink in Luxembourg, and for good reason! Primarily a gin bar, Go Ten offers impressive cocktails in a chic and central location. Not a gin drinker? Other options are available – for example, I haven’t found a tastier vodka martini anywhere else in town. This chic venue also serves food, usually Thai or Japanese, and the dishes are perfect for sharing with a round of drinks. As mentioned, it’s a hot place, so go early to guarantee a table, and don’t be afraid to sit outside, as there are heat lamps and blankets available to guests. You can easily spend the entire night here, but Go Ten is close to everything, so it’s the ideal place to start a night out with girl friends.

Tuesday Nights at Come à la Maison
If you and your girl friends are food lovers, what could be more perfect than a night of home-style Italian beauty food? Come à la Maison offers an impressive menu of traditional and nuanced Italian food, prepared with fresh ingredients and a genuine appreciation of cooking and feeding guests. It’s a fun choice for any night of the week, but Tuesdays are a yummy, communal affair. The restaurant invites a guest chef to cook seasonal, Sicilian dishes before a group of diners seated together at a large table, and guests are then able to enjoy the fruit of the chef’s labour – in total 6 courses for the price of €49. Italian food, mixed with any of the wines from the restaurant’s impressive wine wall, and then topped off with a fun, family vibe are the perfect ingredients for a unique night out with the girls.

Brunch at Cathy Goedert
Okay, this is not a place for a girls’ night out…but if you’ve had rowdy night out and need to remind yourself that you’re actually a rather classy individual who has their life together, despite a pounding headache and dark undereye circles, brunch here is the perfect morning recovery. The setting is beautiful, the scents enough to pique anyone’s appetite, and the strong coffee a delight (Savvy Tip: the marocchino caldo is always a good idea). The Sunday brunch buffet upstairs offer all sorts of life-saving delicious options, ranging from eggs, fruit, salads, pastries and bread, making Cathy Goedert the perfect place to eat well, and to laugh over the events of the previous night.
