A meeting place for all generations TEXT: NANE STEINHOFF | PHOTOS: SCOTT’S PUB

In the heart of Luxembourg City, down in the picturesque, medieval valley that goes by the name ‘Grund’, one can find Scott’s Pub. Since 1985, it has been a meeting place for visitors of all ages and backgrounds and has impressed with a homely and welcoming atmosphere. Luxembourg City’s medieval quarter Grund lies on the banks of the Alzette River. There is no denying that it is one of Luxembourg’s most picturesque areas. Local gems such as Scott’s Pub make it even more special. “Grund is like the hidden valley in town. Once you are in Grund you feel the city stress fading and can relax no matter if you are in suit and tie or just in jeans and a T-shirt,” notes Patrick Topp, who has owned and managed Scott’s Pub for the last 14 years. 56 | Issue 28 | April 2016

Scott’s Pub is a very popular location to going out and mingling with a fun, international crowd of people. Patrick: “We always seek to give people a great experience whether you come to have a good time dancing or you just want to sit and relax with your friends or family. During the day time, we are also a popular spot for families with children.” The pub serves a large variety of beers, whiskies, gins and tasty ciders but there is far more to the place. For example, on the weekends, visitors can enjoy live or chart music, both old and new, played by the pub’s DJs. Furthermore, different events are held throughout the year combined with weekly events such as ‘After Work’ and ‘Ladies Night’. “In April, we will celebrate the opening of our new terrace for example,” adds Patrick.

In winter, guests can enjoy their time at Scott’s next to the open fireplace and indulge in the cosy ambiance, while in the summer, the pub’s spacious sun terrace becomes the spot for many to sip a cold beer during warm evenings. Patrick says: “Sit back, relax and enjoy one of the best terraces in Luxembourg, as well as the views of the River Alzette right in front of you. While being surrounded by quaint, old buildings and the remains of the old castle walls, you feel far away from the noise of traffic and modern life. And you’re only five minutes’ walk from the centre of Luxembourg.”
