After a day of exploring the sights, sounds and culture of the Danish capital you will be ready to discover what the city’s nightlife has to offer. You will not be disappointed. Wonderful Copenhagen’s laid back and welcoming atmosphere is reflected in every aspect of this city’s bars and cafes.

Do not expect an early night when you venture out on the town in Copenhagen. Whereas the majority of Copenhagen's discos and clubs don’t tend to really get going until after midnight, most bars, cafés and restaurants are abuzz all evening and long into the night. This is why many clubbers choose to spend time in the city's super-hip pre-club bars before a festive night on the town. 

Bars to visit

Situated in the very heart of Copenhagen, opposite the Parliament building, you find one of Copenhagen’s cosiest and most luxurious cocktail bars, The Ruby Bar.  It is a popular warm-up venue with an exclusive edge and yet a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The bar is easily mistaken for a private residence due to its homely yet stylish decoration. Well trained staff mix cocktails of the highest calibre, old classics as well as new and innovative ones. For the ultimate Copenhagen experience try a Copenhagen cocktail in the cocktail bar 1105.

For a Nordic twist on the traditional cocktails you already know and love, you need look no further than Karrierebar on Flaesketorvet Square. With homemade, organic ingredients to its concoctions, visitors are definitely in for some new taste sensations here. World class artists across a range of disciplines have defined the functions and design of the place, thereby making art part of a social space shared by a broad audience. Promising a festive night out in informal, yet trendy, surroundings, Karrierebar with a truly contemporary Scandinavian flavour.
