A new beer and burgers place: Snooze, Luxembourg city

After having followed the restructuring work and opening preparation on FB, Matteo and I decided to give a try to Snooze, a new sport bar that opened last week in rue Philippe II.

We booked a table – highly recommended, only 46 places so far – for the first Friday they were open and we had a casual dinner with beer and burger. After the pictures of our evening, you will find my usual impressions about the night….

Things I loved about Snooze:

– Finally a fresh, young and brand new place. Something totally different compared to what you could have seen so far in the city center. Professional customers, kids from school and couples on date mixed in the same, cute place. Bravo!

– Good choice of burgers. I had a Spicy Mexican and Matteo a Classic Cheeseburger. The portions are huge and the buns are the best burger buns I had in town – not those that are disintegrating after two bites. Fair choice of sides as well – and you can trade your usual fries for twisters, onion rings, wedges. Similarly, wide choice for vegetarian and healthy food lovers.

– Perfect drink cards. Several draft beers and more even bottled. Gin, rum, tequila, including some specialty at a really fair price compared to other city center venues. Worth for a quick drink and snack after-work and not just for a proper dinner.

– Huge TV-screen for sport events. I cannot wait to come here for some great tennis matches, you owe me already 🙂

Things I loved a bit less:

– From a place called Beer and Burgers, I would have expected some stronger tastes – I am not here for gastronomic cuisine, darling! My Spicy Mexican burger was good, but not as I expected. If you call a burger “spicy”, it should be spicy, not a mild girly flavor.

– There was some (a lot) confusions: tables next to us received twice the wrong order and also our sauces were mixed. But I think is somehow normal being the first evening they were open and this is not worrying me too much.

Therefore I will definitely give Snooze another chance for food (that was nice anyway but not outstanding) and I strongly recommend it for drinks and for the nice environment. So far so good.

Absolut Vinyl Session at Absolut Ink In Bonnevoie, Luxembourg

Christophe’s Absolut Ink is one year old, but it seems yesterday that it opened its doors for the first time. It filled a gap in Luxembourg panorama, as a tattoo shop was missing in the area. Above that, if you visit is, you have immediately the feeling it is definitely something different from the usual tattoo piercing shop you are used to. It is full of light, minimal and clean spaces all around, bringing it far from the misconception that this kind of places are only for dark, gothic people. They sell also nice products – so you can jump in also for buying your girlfriend a lovely gift (a unique bag or a bracelet from the brand “Too Late“) and not only if you want to get inked.

Once per month, they organize busy parties, with Dr. Gonzo in charge of the dj bit. This Saturday it was the occasion to meet back after Christmas holidays and to introduce the new shop manager, lovely Sandra.

Take a look to some pictures and pass by as soon as you get the occasion – just if you want to change your piercing or you are curious, they are conveniently located in Bonnevoie, few blocks from the Central Station.
