Vesterbro Bars & Nightlife
Vesterbrogade 72B, Vesterbro
Lidkoeb is one of the most hyggelig (warm and cozy, Danish-style) spots in Copenhagen. The interior is very cocktail-bar-meets-rustic-cabin with sheepskin throws over the backs of the leather seats, chevron redbrick floors, and a roaring open fireplace. Almost hidden upstairs, in the eaves of the attic, is the dark and moody, low-lit whiskey bar—perfect for an intimate drink with a significant other.
Viktoriagade 8, Vesterbro
Started by a former math teacher turned master brewer, Mikkeller is fast becoming one of Denmark's most successful micro-breweries. While the Mikkeller brews are sold at various spots around the world (including a new Mikkeller bar in DTLA), Copenhagen's Bar Mikkeller is the original spot, with up to twenty different taps. The space is a modern interpretation of a Danish pub, surprisingly light and airy with wooden furniture, gold fixtures, and a polished green floor.
