Area: Vesterbro

Formerly the Red Light District, up-and-coming Vesterbro boasts its own Meatpacking District, with gritty bars and fine dining side-by-side. Take in an exhibition at the old cattle market, Øksnehallen, a short walk from Copenhagen Central Station. Istegade and Vesterbrogade are packed with great restaurants and bars, but Vesterbro also offers you its own little foodie paradise, Værnedamsvej; a quiet side street of delis, cafés and restaurants.
