Copenhagen nightlife

The Danes think of their neighbors as they would members of their family. Denmark is the baby sister whose idea of fun occasionally shocks.

  • Vesterbro, Bar, $$$$ $$$
  • Viktoriagade 8BC Kld.
  • Copenhagen, 1655
  • +45-33-31-04-15
  • Website | Email

Quirky pub showcasing a range of Mikkel Borg Bjergsø 's legendary craft beers and the world's finest indie brews. The stark white interiors are accented by a black subway tile wall, natural wood furniture, and pops of yellow and green. None of the twenty beers on tap will disappoint, but if you're undecided the friendly bartenders will point you in the right direction.

Nimb Bar

Former ballroom turned hotel bar decorated with pinewood floors, cut-glass chandeliers, and whimsical pen and ink style wall drawings. Along with a lengthy list of inventive cocktails, which includes the Bees Knees (Gin, Danish Honey, Lemon) and the Last Word (Gin, Chartreuse, Maraschino Liquor, Lime) they serve afternoon tea and a decadent adults only Sunday brunch.

Ruby

  • Indre By , Lounge, $$$$ $$$
  • Nybrogade 10

The unmarked door of an 18th century townhouse leads to a haven of craft cocktail artistry. Oriental rugs and chesterfield couches are strewn throughout the dimly lit apartment. The menu takes advantage of fresh ingredients like lime juice and aromatic thyme, changing seasonally. Ruby's relaxed setting and quality drinks make for the perfect nightcap.
