This is a new one to us but they stole our hearts with the Bramble. Enough said. Atmosphere is cool because even if you don’t order food, an open kitchen means entertainment and maybe picking up some inspiration for your predictable meals at home.

This place is where the cool kids go. Their drink list isn’t extensive, but it’s good and is cheaper and more laid back than any city center bar. Their patio is on the sidewalk and on a sunny night the young and lovely spill out onto the street. This place feels like you could be in NYC or Paris in a hip hood…
- Good for: People watching and being seen.

Vis a Vis
We wouldn’t recommend the inside of Vis a Vis during the summer (it’s perfect for cold weather) but their outside patio is wonderful in the evening. Their outside seating is really just an open courtyard but with bistro table and chairs it feels Parisian. The vibe is jovial and there are regulars hanging out at all hours of the day. Go there around 9 and enjoy some classic aperitifs while the city gets dark.
- Good for: Watching the nightlife.
Where: 2 rue Beaumont, Luxembourg, L – 1219 When: Mon – Sat 12:00 to 1:00 Damage: Cocktails from 9 Euro
Seriously- a drink taking in the views on this patio is the definition of summer in Luxembourg. It’s no secret that it is one of CSL’s favourite places for libations with our crew. Also the service is so good, it is tough to go anywhere else!
- Good for: Views, views and holy cow! The views!
Where: 2, Montée de Clausen L-1343 Luxembourg
When: Mon – Sat 11:30 – 1:00
Damage: Cocktails from 10 Euro, fantastic wine list

For those days you need to get out of the city, Café Waldhaff is the perfect place to go. Any drink will taste great while sitting under a big umbrella on their gorgeous lawn or under their nice covered patio. They have an excellent wine menu and are happy to put a cocktail together. Just make sure some one can drive home!
- Good for: A designated driver.
