The Best 5 Cocktail Bars in Copenhagen
Cocktail bars have spread in Denmark. You might think that Danes are primarily famous for beer, but you will be surprised at how the cocktail culture has evolved. Here you can find a top selection of the most popular cocktail bars you should not miss during your visit.
The Best 5 Cocktail Bars in Copenhagen:
The owner of Curfew – Humberto Saraviva Marques – is regarded as one of Denmark’s top bartenders. He had worked at four- and five-star hotels around the world and four years as a bartender at 1105 (you will read about this bar later) before he opened his cocktail bar.
The bar’s style evokes memories of curfews during the American prohibition time of the 1920-30s. You can choose from a wide range of cocktails – mainly based on Scandinavian spirits with a bit of Portuguese essence.
The bar is suitable for hosting 90-100 guests sitting at or relaxing on one of the green sofas. To enhance the relaxation, dimmish lightning and music support the relaxing atmosphere.
Ruby was ranked 34 out of the world’s 50 best bars in 2015. It is placed in Copenhagen’s heart in an old townhouse from 1740. Despite its location, it is hidden well away from the masses. There are no flashy signs at the entrance, but if you go inside, you will find yourself in a cosy venue. You cannot make a wrong choice from the impressive list of cocktails, even if you try some seasonal speciality or go for the original tastes. Finally, the bartenders’ expertise will ensure your best cocktail experience.
The same owners as Ruby own Lidkoeb, so that you can expect the same cosy atmosphere and fantastic cocktails. The bar has three floors and a pleasant courtyard where you can enjoy long summer nights. Initially, a long wooden bar, comfortable leather chairs, and a fireplace are located on the ground floor. Then, on the next floor, you find tables for prominent companies with a smaller bar and a wide range of cocktails. Lastly, the top floor has a cosy living room and is a haven for whiskey lovers.
The decoration of 1105 is inspired by exclusive London hotel bars – modern and stylish furniture. The seating area offers a comfy place to hang out if you’re there with friends or on a date. Although this bar aims to serve as a gathering place for a mature audience, the average age of guests is above 30. Condé Nast Traveller’s included “1105” in the trendiest international bars and nightclubs in 2010. They deserved it for the friendly atmosphere and the top-quality cocktails they serve.
In 2013, Strøm Bar was nominated for The World’s 50 Best Bars. Its speciality is that all of the cocktails’ ingredients are homemade, which gives the recipe for the best gourmet cocktails.
“Strøm” means power in Danish. That gives a luxurious and stylish taste but still a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. It has two rooms – in the first, you can find the bar, and in the other, you can enjoy your cocktails in the booths. The menu changes every three months, so you can always try something new if you are a returning guest.
