The owner of Curfew – Humberto Saraviva Marques – is regarded as one of Denmark’s top bartenders. He had been working 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 own cocktail bar.
The style of the bar evokes memories from when curfews were executed in the American prohibition time of the 1920-30s. You can choose from a wide range of cocktails – from the classics to modern flavours – mainly based on Scandinavian spirits with a little bit of Portuguese essence.
This luxurious bar is really spacious, suitable to host 90-100 guests sitting at the bar or relaxing in one of the green sofas while enjoying a delicious cocktail. To enhance the feeling of comfort, dimmish lightning and pleasant funky, jazz, swing or soul music support the relaxing atmosphere.

The seating area offers a comfy place to hang out and chat if you’re there with friends or a date. This bar aims to serve as a gathering place for a mature audience, the average age of guests is above 30.

In 2013, Strøm Bar was also nominated for the list of The World’s 50 Best Bars. The speciality of the place is that all the ingredients are homemade which gives the recipe of the best gourmet cocktails.
„Strøm” means power in Danish, and the bar was named based on the fact, it is powered by a European Art Deco influence. That gives the luxurious and stylish, but still cosy and relaxed atmosphere. The bar has two rooms – in the one you can find the bar and the other room you can enjoy your cocktails in the booths. The menu changes around every three months, so you can always try something new if you are a returning guest.
