Luxembourg Nightlife

Hi,

I'm looking to potentially visit Luxembourg with a few friends for a concert in November, and I've been trying to find out what the nightlife is like and have read mixed things.

We'd be visiting from Thursday to Sunday and will be looking to go to good bars and clubs if possible,

- Is the Thursday night lively and are there any specific areas/places to go?

- My understanding is that Luxembourg is expensive: what would be the average cost for a pint (or 0.5L) of beer?

- Are there any good bars/clubs that will play indie music?

Thanks in advance :)

The main nightlife area is Rives de Clausen (which is called incorrectly Rue Emile Mousel on Google Maps). In addition, there are some bars in Grund (around Rue Munster), and in the high city around Rue de la Boucherie. Rue de Hollerich used to be popular too, but I believe this area is rather dead nowadays (except for the Atelier concert hall - is this where your concert is?).

Thursday night is a bit quieter, but still quite popular for after-work-drinks (perhaps a bit earlier on the day).

For a different experience, I would recommend the piano bar Café des Artistes in Grund: it's a bit go-back-in-time-place, no recorded music here but a piano player and people singing along instead. They are also open (and usually quite busy) on Thursdays.

Not sure about indie music, perhaps Scott's in Grund?

0.5 liter of beer costs about 6 euro.

Hi there

Well you got several choices in town concerning indie music or alternative. I can suggest some bars like Rocas, Steiler, De Gudden Wëllen or Konrad for example. They all are in the city centre and you easily can bar hop from one to another. They will all close at 1AM on Thursday but most of them will close at 3AM on Friday and Saturday. Possibly you'll even be able to see a Live concert in one of these bars.

Rives de Clausen area is sometimes a bit lame actually, locals don't seem to enjoy it there.

Grund area is very nice. In fact on a Thursday night you might even see a Bues Jam Session in Liquid bar.

A shame one of the best indie bars closed some time ago which was right next to Atelier.

Clubs is something that Luxembourg is really lacking of. They seem to all play the same tunes. I'd suggest to do bars in town untill 3AM and than see where people would suggest to go later.

Sunday the city is quite dead.

And a pint will cost you between 5€ the cheapest and 6 to 7 the expensive ones.
