in a humble city where a sense of minimalism and self-sufficiency infuses every aspect of life, here's a guide that focuses on getting more out of less.
perfect, low-key sunday hang-out if you just want to read, have a beer or a glass of wine, or listen to music. food not superb, but surroundings make up for it.
“pick up something for your next journey. an excellent range of vendors in what was once a horribly neglected plaza next to ørstedsparken.”—svanes
“amongst my favorite places for lunch for bona fide smørrebrød, very close to where adriana & i lived. fyi, check out 'kartoffelrækkerne,' the nearby rowhouses.”—svanes
“if you want a classic danish lunch (our biggest meal of the day), then here you must go. die-hard old school copenhagen. be sure to have akvavit + beer as well.”—svanes
“danish hot dogs are so delicious yet they're grossly artificial. not these, however. this is truly good organic danish street food! get one with "det hele."”—svanes
“expense account kind of place. high-end meals. consistently named amongst most highly regarded restaurants in the city. the chef is one of DK's culinary stars.”—svanes
“the museum of decorative arts offers an outstanding collection and a 300 yr. old garden/courtyard for when you need a rest. formerly called kunstindustrimuseet.”—svanes
“once a functional alternative to mainstream values, now in its last stages but still an embodiment of tolerance: proof that there's room for living differently.”—svanes
“everyone knows noma, of course. copenhagen foodies also know kadeau. dishes inspired by the riches from the island of bornholm, home to the chefs. great spot.”—svanes
“similar to NYC's cooper hewitt, the DDC offers an insightful walk through of the history of danish design, succinctly defining its role in danish society.”—svanes
twilight is the best time to go. thousands of lights come on in the various gardens and there's often a live band playing somewhere and a buzz in the air.
“the city’s best club and a great place to hear live music – 3 levels, very democratic door policy, no attitude, beautiful crowd. open until dawn or so.”—svanes
