So please always check the precise timing of a show that has grabbed your attention. Door opening times are always announced on our website. Parties always start at 10.00pm and never end… at least not until dawn.

In our (secured) cloakroom for the cost of €2.00. Unfortunately, the amount of space is limited. Make sure to arrive on time so as to have more luck, especially during the winter.
If you think the show is too loud, despite the special attention we pay to it, please feel free to ask for earplugs at the cloakroom.

Many bands/artists/performers want to play den Atelier, but we obviously cannot accommodate everyone who is sending us their press package. Many of those acts are impossible to host for a show, not because they are not talented, but because they are not appropriate for the club at present. Please keep this in mind when you undertake the effort to send us your kit.
Send your material labelled with the name of the band, phone number and/or e-mail address to: den Atelier, attn. booking, po box 1371, L-1013 Luxembourg, GD of Luxembourg. Or send us a mail with mp3s to [email protected]. We listen to everything that is being sent to us. If we can arrange something, we will contact you.
No, you cannot! In everybody’s interest, pets are not allowed at den Atelier.
Without prior written authorization by record label or artist management, professional cameras are strictly prohibited inside the venue. Video or audio recording devices are not allowed either and can be seized by artist tour-management or promoter.
The idea to start up a live music club in Luxembourg came into our minds in the beginning of the 90’s. Why did all the international bands play Brussels, Paris or London? Regular short trips to the Ancienne Belgique (Brussels), the Botanique (Brussels), the Vooruit (Gent), the Bataclan (Paris), the E-Werk (Cologne) or the Paradiso in Amsterdam provided the inspiration. These venues, in a way, stand as the godfathers of the idea of building up den Atelier in Luxembourg as it stands today.
A suitable space was needed and they certainly do not come in dozens in case you unveil your plan to boost massive amounts of dB’s into a hangar in the middle of an inhabited neighbourhood… Eventually, the right spot had been found: a former Renault truck garage in the lively Luxembourg-City suburb of Hollerich, commonly called ‘Downtown’.
During the hot ‘n’ sweaty summer of 1995, the former workshop (‘atelier’ in French – ah, that’s where the name comes from… underwent a complete D.I.Y. restoration.
den Atelier finally opened its doors on 23rd October 1995. The opening night had been heavily boosted by the national press (thanks for that!) and turned out to be a huge success.
The label ‘SuperDrecksKëscht fir Betriber’ is a recognised quality label granted to businesses that have adopted an environmentally friendly waste management plan. The ISO 14024 label is granted by the Environment Agency (Administration de l’environnement), the Chamber of Skilled Trades and Crafts (Chambre des Métiers) and the Chamber of Commerce (Chambre de Commerce).
All of those who believed in the project from the start (and there were not many in fact), the friends that helped us to build the place, our mothers that had the cool idea to infant us… Let us not forget all the media that help us out getting in touch with people. We also want to thank the City of Luxembourg for supporting us and the many artists that push life and atmosphere into our venue, not to forget all our webmasters and consultants for getting us online: we believe you that we’re not easy to work with, everyone who has ever tried, said just that… We’ve tried not to forget anybody, if we did, never mind…
