Yes- you read correctly. We know, we know. It isn’t June but guess what?! You live in Luxembourg so this year Father’s Day in Luxembourg falls on the 6th of October- AS IN THIS SUNDAY. We’ve got some ideas for you to honour the big man in your life and make him feel special.

FOR THE FOODIE DAD: Come á La Maison

What dad doesn’t deserve the best brunch in Luxembourg- especially one that isn’t served with a side of passive aggression after he gets a lie in? Let him be treated as any King should be- with all the Italian comfort foods, desserts and have we discussed the seafood bar. The best part- no clean up.

When: Sunday Brunch on Father’s Day
Where: Come á La Maison, Entrance by Robin du Lac 70 Route d’Esch, L-1470

FOR THE PIGGY DAD

So your dad hates cleaning? Give him a break and call Immaculate Cleaning Services. After a visit to your home, you might not be so hard on the father of the household for leaving his socks all over the house.

When: any time you like, no binding contracts
Contact: 621 372 774

FOR THE CAT LOVING DAD

So your dad grew up with cats but your children are allergic? A cat-themed bar has come to Lux! Arm him with his newspaper and books and drop him off bang in the middle of the city! Your man can put his feet up at Chalon de thé and have a piece of cake and a coffee while stroking a furry friend and when you pick him up he should be relaxed and grateful for the hour(s) with the felines.

When: anytime you allow the cat out of the bag that this place exists
Where: 19-25 rue des Capucines (Ville Haute)
Contact: 262 027 83

FOR THE NINETIES DAD

Does the dad in your family say embarrassing things like ‘Oh Snap!’ or ‘Take a Chill Pill’ – then get him in a flannel shirt and a colourful windbreaker and take him to the 90s party at Den Atelier.

When: Saturday, 19th of October at 10pm
Where: den Atelier, 54 Rue de Hollerich, L-1741 

FOR THE CRIME SOLVING DAD- A Murder Mystery

A rip-roaring crime comedy, chosen by the audience, and entirely made up on the spot by the cast. Who? What? How? The choice is yours. The problem is theirs!

When: Thursday 17, Friday 18th and Saturday, 19th of October at 8pm

Where: Bazaar, 46 place du Guilluame II, 1648 Luxembourg

Does your man need some flexibility? Or just need to unplug and focus on his core while hopefully experiencing serenity? If he works in Kirchberg, then we’ve got your perfect location. Get him a session and exhale.

LIVE MUSIC:
FOR THE MUSO DAD ( 4 Options based on his musical taste)

1- Pile: For the Dad Who Likes To Rock

While this band is originally from Boston, they are now based in Nashville, Tennessee and one thing is for sure, in the United States, they have a truly dedicated fan base. Their sound was described by The Village Voice as a “distinct blend of melted guitars” with “howling-wolf vocals and shred-free guitar harmonies”

When: Saturday, 4th of October at 8:30pm
Where: Rotondes, Place des Rotondes, 2448 Luxembourg
website

2- Khalid : For the Dad Who is Down With the Kids

While Khalid jumped to fame when Kylie Jenner played him on her Snapchat- (incidentally the same day he graduated high school)- any fresh dad who listens to Khalid is one we want to hang out with because he has his finger on the pulse and ear to the ground.

When: Sunday, 6th of October at 8:30pm
Where: Rockhal, Esch Sur Alzette
website

3- James Morrison: For the Realistic Dad Who Likes his Music to Mirror his Life


This British singer songwriter’s latest album ‘You’re Stronger than You Know’ is exactly that- sums up his experience of his feelings about becoming a dad. Simple songs with sweet lyrics detail the four years spent writing and you truly feel there is music in his soul since entering into this next chapter of his life.
When: October 14th at 7pm
Where: den Atelier, 54 Rue de Hollerich, 1741 Luxembourg

4- For the Alternative Dad Who is Obsessive With His Tunes

The Pixies
Here Comes Your Man! If your big Daddy is still wild after 30 years, then perhaps he needs to get back in touch with his roots and sway to the unique tunes of their enormous back catalogue.
When: October 14th at 7pm
Where: den Atelier, 54 Rue de Hollerich, 1741 Luxembourg

FOR THE FORGOTTEN DAD:
If you haven’t washed your hair, the floor is sticky and you just need to get through the weekend, take comfort in a survey done in Australia earlier this year. They found that more than 40 percent of Aussie men chose “being told you are loved” as the number one gift they could get on Father’s Day.
