Pick 1- 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 G&T is their best drink so we say let the experts decide!
Good for: A perfect evening; sit in a tranquil oasis while watching the train coast along. Bet you take a selfie, summer libation in hand!
Pick 2- 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. Come Saturday and Sunday for brunch mimosas! This place feels like you could be in NYC or Paris in a hip hood…
Good for: People watching and being seen.
Pick 3- Vis-à-Vis
Vis-à-Vis outside patio is wonderful in the evening or a sunny afternoon. Their outside seating is really just an open courtyard but with bistro tables and chairs it feels Parisian. The vibe is jovial and there are regulars hanging out at all hours of the day.
Good for: Watching the city pass by.
Pick 4- Scott’s Pub
You know how much we love Scott’s! Who wouldn’t love sitting on their terrace looking at the water and taking in the beautiful views of the Grund? Scott’s was of course also recommended by tons of our readers.
Good for: A cold beer, delicious eats and an incredible view.
Where: 4 Bisserweg, 1238 Lëtzebuerg
Pick 5- La Cave a Manger
This is the perfect location to catch up with friends and family or just have a break in your day. There is never a bad time for wine, so this spot is always a good choice. Have a glass or share a bottle, enjoy some cheeses and meats, you can’t go wrong!
Good for: A bottle of their amazing wine. The staff are so helpful with recommendations!
Where: 1 rue Bender 1229 Luxembourg
Pick 6- Urban
Urban is always a fan favorite. They have so many fun cocktails to choose from. If you build up an appetite after drinking, this is also the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat. We love the environment and the scene (in both locations).
Good for: People watching and a relaxed drink with friends.
Where: 2 Rue de la Boucherie, L-1247 Luxembourg and 7 Avenue du Rock’n’Roll, L-4361 Esch-sur-Alzette

Dispo, the wine Republic, has a beautiful and large terrace. This is the perfect place for people watching, trying new wines and enjoying a day with nice weather.
Good for: Gin and tonic, who doesn’t love this classic?
Where: 4 rue de la Loge, Luxembourg
Pick 8- Drupi’s
Drupi’s has been recommended to us as a local hot spot so we definitely had to add it to the list. This is a chic and modern wine bar with an adorable terrace. They specialize in wines so tasty that you may want to take a bottle or two home for later.
Good for: An afterwork glass of wine and a mean charcuterie board!
Where: 26, rue de l’Alzette, 4011 Esch-sur-Alzette
Pick 9- The Buvette
Part of the cultural centre Rotondes, the Buvette is relaxed, fun and friendly. You’ll find a mix of people enjoying an afterwork here which makes for a truly international vibe. The Buvette is Luxembourg at its best.
Good for: Mixing cocktails and culture.
Where: Place des Rotondes, 2448 Luxembourg
Pick 10: De Gudde Wëllen
With an incredible view of the Grund and everything from house cocktails to craft beers this terrace is not to be missed. It’s the perfect spot to spend a chill summer afternoon or evening catching up with friends.
Good for: Feeling like a local.
Where: 17 Rue du St Esprit, 1475 Luxembourg
Pick 11- Parc L’eh
This is the perfect terrace to keep the entire family happy. You can choose to drink and enjoy the fine dining of Restaurant Parc L’eh or you can head to the more casual portion of the terrace for drinks and snacks. Located in Dudelange’s forest, the kids can play on the playground next door or walk the barefoot path when they’re tired of sitting with the parents. It’s a win/win.
Good for: Parents who want to sip on a lovely cocktail or glass of wine while the kids play.
Pick 12- KYOSK
Ok not technically a terrace, but this open-air restaurant is one of our absolute favourite places to sip on cocktails with friends. There’s always music and good vibes at KYOSK. It’s the perfect place to pass a Saturday away. Also good for families as the kids can play in the park.
Good for: People watching and lounging in the sun!
Where: 10 Rue Léon Hengen, 1745 Luxembourg
Pick 13- Mama Shelter
No terrace list is complete without a mention of Mama Shelter’s rooftop bar. With awesome views of Kirchberg and great vibes (think sun beds, pétanque and ping pong) this is the perfect place to spend a summer evening under the stars. …no reservations though, so arrive with the relaxed mindset that you may wait for a place.
Good for: Feeling like you’re in a big(ger) city.
Where: 2 Rue du Fort Niedergruenewald, 1616 Luxembourg
Pick 14- Sky Bar
Hidden away on top of the City Concorde, this unexpected restaurant/bar has a wonderful terrace that makes you forget you’re technically in a mall. Fantastic cocktails and food…it’s a place we find ourselves often returning.
Good for: showing your friends you’re in the know.
Where: 80, route de Longwy, 8060 Bertrange
