About Copenhagen

Copenhagen Cycle Chic, my favourite CPH-related blog

Going out

Dyrehaven, my favourite bar, and local to me in Vesterbro

Ruby’s, one of the best cocktail bars around, in any country

Maven, the restaurant with the best room in CPH, in a converted church and with a great outdoor area in the summer

Granola, the (sometimes too) popular place to go for brunch

But if you can’t get in to Granola, then Cafe Laundromat is a more than worthy substitute

The Nørrebro Bryghus is a microbrewery that always has brilliant beers on

Pate Pate, a great bar and restaurant only occasionally marred by the swanky clientele

And next door to Pate Pate is Mother, a lively pizza spot in the Meat Packing District

Shopping & Sights

My favourite CPH sight so far, the Rundetaarn – cheap and with a great view

Much more than just a beer here, so get familiar with its history at Visit Carlsberg

Sound Station, Copenhagen’s best music shop

Fil De Fer, beautiful French antiques and lovely staff, in the heart of CPH

And more French and assorted antiques and vintage at Beau Marche

Rundt om Vin, the best wine shop in Copenhagen, in Hellerup and run by the lovely Malene

Juul’s Wine & Spirits, for all those hard-to-find mixers

Designer Zoo, a collection of independent designers who make up a great shop

Hay, a modern Danish designer with a beautiful shop in the centre

AC Perch’s, old world tea shop, with relaxing tea salon upstairs


Stop number 1 – hire a bike. I’ve used Baisikeli a lot, but there are lots more around

AOK, the self-proclaimed insider’s guide to Copenhagen

The Copenhagen Post, Denmark’s only English language newspaper

IA Sprog, my Danish language school, which I highly recommend

Days away

Helenekilde Badehotel, a stunning night away on the north coast of Copenhagen’s island, Sjælland.
