My favorite place #6: The Union

Copenhagen is full of great places, especially for a bon vivant like me, which makes it hard to pick one favorite place. The city has a lot of great restaurants, wine and beer bars, but there are also a few cocktail bars which are definitely worth a visit. One of my favorite cocktail bars is...

Antidote Vinbar: Wine and good atmosphere at the corner

In my opinion, there are two types of wine bars. The type with a fixed menu, where “what you see, is what you get”. And then there is the other type, with no menu card and comments like ”we just got a few bottles of this wine last week, do you want to try it?”...
Det Elektriske Hjørne: A nostalgic, art deco style bar, for the hopelessly romantic

Det Elektriske Hjørne: A nostalgic, art deco style bar, for the hopelessly romantic

A small guide to Blågårdsgade in Copenhagen

I remember when I visited Copenhagen for a weekend six years ago. My mum and I had been in Copenhagen many times before, but never for more than an evening or a day. This time, we stayed two days and decided to see more than the usual tourist stuff. We had gotten a small free...

Terroiristen: One of the best wine bars at Nørrebro in Copenhagen

I had passed Terroiristen many times, before I actually went inside. It took me a while, because I thought that the place looked to clean and minimalistic for me. Not at all like the coffee bars with second hand furniture where I usually hang out. However, when I finally dared to try the wine bar,...
