Tips / Travel

Guides and apps that promise to help you get the most out of your weekend, be it in the city in which you live and work or one you are visiting, are ten a penny. Le Cool offers a different take on the tired listings format by offering a curated selection of alternative events presented in its free, weekly online magazine.


Since its inception in 2003, Le Cool has steadily added new cities to its offering. Cultural events and goings-on are now available for 13 world cities, including lesser-known destinations like the Finnish city of Tampere.


The focus is on underground events which offer new experiences, and the magazine is aimed as much at city residents searching for the new trendy spot as wide-eyed tourists visiting town for the first time. Most of the featured cities are in Europe, and Le Cool claims 300,000 residents of the continent currently subscribe to its weekly newsletter.


Le Cool is a great way for those planning a trip around Europe to stay on top of cutting-edge events in cities that they would like to visit, such as Barcelona, London, Lisbon and Dublin. The team behind the magazine is also responsible for producing the Weird and Wonderful Guides series, which takes the idea of a guidebook in a new direction. Both Le Cool and its sister series of guide books are a boon to any traveler looking to get a more authentic local experience from their chosen travel destination.
