Cafe Luxembourg Sunday (mostly French) Jazz Session

Café Luxembourg, a classic since almost 25 years

At the end of the eighties, when Luxembourg openened, the Grand Café instantaneously became one of the few really famous venues of Amsterdam

The whole city but also its many visitors know Luxembourg, either through one of the many guides that have labelled it a “must see” or, even better, by coincidence. Because it is hard to avoid the café. A stylish oasis at one of the busiest spots of the city. The unique “parisien” terrace that makes “people watching” almost an understatement.

The Brasserie, serving a stylish breakfast, lunch and dinner, is also a stronghold for simplicity and tradition. Have an afternoon beer here, enjoy the world famous prawn croquettes or the (officially) best veal “bitterballs” of the city.

Best quality is keyword at Luxembourg, the well maintained interior is exactly the same as 25 years ago, service is impeccable. The same goes for the bread, the smoked salmon, the cheeses, broths, meat and wines. A broad selection of international newspapers shows respect for all visitors.

On Sunday afternoons the famous band Alderliefste plays legendary French music for 3 hours. What a way to close the week and start a new one.

    Dear all, I'm looking for a second contact for this event 'Café Luxumbourg' on coming Sunday the 2nd of March. I will not be there the whole time--- have received last minute duty calls. But I wanted to make sure that the attendees, especially the new people, can find each other or have a contact to look forward to if they are alone and don't know anyone. Please let me know either here on the comment line or send me a private message if you can be my second contact. Many, many thanks!!

      Steve, I apologize....it was a very crowded event and on top there were two other parties going on. I will bring a Meetup sign with black/red text next time (the last time I did the café would not let me put it up but I will try again)!

    Hi TJ, I apologise for not changing my rsvp to this event. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get access to the Meetup App over the weekend.

      Ellie, hi, not a problem-- not your fault at all. Meetup had an extended outage and still to this date is trying to cleanup the after effects. Many people could not access to the Meetup sites for days, and some messages are said to have been lost.

    Dear all, we are only a week away from the next Café Luxembourg jazz Sunday, which is usually causing quite a sensation in town every time they have the band on. As we are anticipating a normally huge crowd (there are other groups/parties also choosing this wonderful place, date and time to have their get-together), we plan to stay at the back where the tables are until around[masked]pm, then move up to as close to the band and dance floor as possible (where there is only standing room, no tables) for the rest of the night. Please try to look at some of the members' photos and help us identify each other. Don't be shy to ask around...people are very nice. I (usually) look like my photo so you should be able to spot me :) See you soon! TJ
