July is winding down! Who cares if it is meant to rain all week- how about a cocktail to help you welcome in the August sunshine? We’ve compiled a list of our favourite 7 Summer picks  for drinks in Luxembourg.

Um Plateau

Tucked away in a quite corner of Clausen, this elegant gem feels intimate despite its popularity. Incredible views in the garden are complemented by chic chairs with a signature Um Plateau cocktail in hand. They claim that the Botanist is their best drink so we say let the experts decide!

  • Good for: A perfect summer evening; sit in a tranquil oasis while watching the train coast along. Bet you take a selfie, summer libation in hand!
Where: 6, Plateau Altmünster L-1123
When: Monday to Friday: 12:00pm – 2:30pm & 6:00pm -1:00am
Saturday: 6:00pm- 1:00am
Closed Saturday afternoon & Sundays
Damage: Reasonably priced/ out of this world tapas to share
Contact: Tel: 26 47 84 26

Franz

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.

  • Good for: If there is someone playing the piano, with a drink in hand, watching someone tickle the ivories, your mood is guaranteed to be sunnier. Did we mention the Bramble?
Where: 32, rue de la Poste, Luxembourg, Luxembourg
When: Closed Sundays and Mondays
Damage: Cocktails from 11 Euro

ZanZen

Rain or shine, this expansive city center bar is great for a drink. They have ample space outside with comfy couches and chairs should the sun be shining. Inside, the atmosphere is  comfy with couches and quirky details abound. Their cocktail list is endless, and the wait staff is happy to explain what each drink involves.

  • Good for:  Romance or a good gossipy catch up, just depending on your mood.
Where: 27 Rue Notre Dame, Luxembourg, L – 2240
When: Mon – Sat 12:00 – 1:00
Damage: Cocktails from 11 Euro

Bouneweger Stuff

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.
Where1, rue du Cimetière, Luxembourg, L – 1338
When: Everyday 11 – 1:00
Damage: Cocktails from 9 Euro

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.

Beim Siggy

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

Cafe Waldhaff

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.

Where: Waldhof, Luxembourg, L-1638
