About the Vesterbro neighbourhood
A short intro and history about the area in general
The once-seedy Copenhagen neighbourhood Vesterbro where I live, gives a flavour of the capital that locals enjoy, with designer shops and cafes, plus restaurants and night spots of the revamped Meatpacking District. I think Vesterbro is a mix between Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam! Very cosy, but still you can find fine vintage, weird spots, the best eating places in all categories and budgets. The best beer spots, central station dirt, and diversity is seen on every street. you can have rocknroll, hangover spots and fine dining af the same time! The allure of Vesterbro, the district that spreads west from Copenhagen’s central station, is in the contrast it provides with the colourful waterside houses, cobbled streets and tourist-thronged sites of the city centre. Here, the hordes thin, the streets widen and you can tap into a Danish living vibe that manages to be laid-back yet sophisticated. There’s little evidence of the seedy nightlife that once made it a no-go area; now student dives and tattoo shops are interspersed with charming courtyard bars and design shops.

Bars - Vesterbro area
Bar in Vesterbro: Märkbar (Vesterbrogade 106A) is a basement dive where the decor, clientele and staff are all rough and ready. There is no shortage of piercings, tattoos and rock ‘n’ roll attitude, but the people are friendly, the stereo rotates hard rock, and you can get a good pint. This is also one of the few places where you’re still allowed to smoke, so you may smell a little toasty after a visit.

For something a little more refined, head back to Vesterbrogade and Lidkoeb (lidkoeb.dk), a sibling to the city’s famous Ruby cocktail bar (in the city centre). Here, a former apothecary’s shop has been transformed into an elegant three-floor drinking den. The downstairs, with leather banquettes and floor-to-ceiling arched windows, is for being seen sipping cocktails such as the håndslag – a mix of cachaça, pineapple syrup, fresh lime and celery bitters (£12); the middle floor has more of a living room feel, and up top is a Chesterfield- and rug-swathed den under the eaves for whisky lovers. It’s an immaculate take on a late-night drinking spot.

Good Coffee places - Vesterbro area
One of the cosiests and best coffe spots in my neigbourhood. It’s worth exploring off the main road for little gems, too. Sort Kaffe & Vinyl (adress: Skydebanegade 4) sells vintage and new records in a shop that doubles as a café. A local place where only curious tourists know about it!

The Meatpacking District used to be home to Copenhagen’s meat industry businesses. In recent years, it has changed into a new creative cluster with a trendy nightlife and a broad range of high quality restaurants.
About seven years ago, the former butcher’s and fishmonger’s shops of the Meatpacking District, south of Vesterbro’s Sønder Boulevard, started being regenerated as restaurants. It’s now a buzzy spot and a foody hub. The newest restaurant in the area is Kul (restaurantkul.dk, which champions the area’s gritty look (the buildings are listed so all establishments have white bathroom tiles on the walls and terracotta floors) but has a more international culinary outlook. Influenced by Californian-style cooking, chef-founders Henrik Jyrk and Christian Mortensen gambled on a bit of a local backlash to the now ubiquitous Nordic cooking style to create a menu that spans the globe – ribs with kimchee, for example, or Ibérico ham with tempura squid. Dinner including wine from around £42 a head.

Sightseeing Vesterbro
The Carlsberg Museum (visitcarlsberg.dk) probably isn’t the best museum in the world but it is part of an interesting development on Vesterbro’s western fringes. The famous lager’s enormous former brewing plant is slowly being transformed into a “microcity”, currently comprising a museum about the beer’s history, a couple of bars, a restaurant, a fun “pop-up” area where locals sell second-hand clothes and an “urban beach”. The complex also includes a Climbing Forest (klatreskoven.dk), which brilliantly showcases the hearty, eco-minded Danish world view in a hippyish climbing trail along wooden platforms and zipwires.
